The End of the First Trimester

On Sunday I will begin my second trimester of pregnancy #4.  Either I'm getting GOOD at this pregnancy thing or I am definitely, 100% having another girl (we're opting not to find out this time...who wants to know what they're getting for Christmas???)

There are many days I forget I am even pregnant.  I don't FEEL anything.  Sure, my jeans are too tight and I'm much more comfortable wearing maternity shorts.  Anyone would be wearing maternity clothes if they ate as much as I do these days.  It's going to take awhile to lose this baby weight!

But I don't have morning sickness, sometimes smells bother me, but that is normal for me anyway.  I don't have cravings per se.  I just want to eat ALL the time.

As far as I can tell I'm not emotional.

I am TIRED all the time, but I think any mother of 3 who has 2 extra children 40+ hours a week, 2 dogs, and 4 ball games a week would be tired.

Baby is the size (supposedly) of a lime.  I'll let you know when I feel her (or him) move-it should make me feel more pregnant when that happens!

eek! i haven't been here in WAY too long! congrats, mama! if i could make it a day (let alone a whole trimester!) without hoarking, maybe i'd be signing up for another pregnancy, too. happy summer, friend.

Glad you're doing well! I use to love reading how big the baby was at each stage too. Hope you don't get too hot over the summer.

Take it easy and take care of yourself.
