Today I am 14 weeks and one day pregnant. I am now officially im my second trimester.
I imagined I would have a bump by now, but at least I feel like I am starting to thickening up through the waist. In the mornings the bump is still quite hideable, but by the evening all of the days bloating really starts to show.
One exciting thing thay happened last week was receiving our blood screening results back from the hospital. We decided to have every screening available, and so we got the results for Down’s, Patau’s and Edward’s syndromes. Thankfully all were low risk, in the one in tens of thousands range, so that is good enough for me.
I also decided to tell the remainder of my colleagues on Wednesday. All were very happy and excited for me, however as feared, every conversation is now pregnancy or birth related.
Oh, and I decided to go and look at some maternity clothes. They are all terrible. The jeans I tried were weird and in no way flattering or comfortable, so I hope I can avoid those! I came home with 2 plain t shirts though, so it is a start.
How pregnant: 14 weeks
How feeling: Generally good, with the exception of the return of the violent vomiting. 7.20am every day I have to dash to the loo. This is the case whether I have eaten breakfast or not. The morning sickness Gods demand a sacrifice each and every morning, and don’t care if it is fruit, museli, crumpets or just bile. Nice.
Any symptoms: Copious amount of vomit. Whoever said that by the 2nd trimester things will have settled down is a liar.
Any cravings: Virgin Mary cocktails! I started thinking about one on Friday morning and I had to send my Other half to find Tobasco sauce and Worcestershire sauce on his way home, while I found the tomato juice and black peppercorns. I had to add about 5 times the suggested quantity of the two condiments to achieve the taste I was after, but Oh My… It was spicy amazing! I can see me drinking one of these everyday. I just need to find a reduced salt tomate juice and we are peachy!
Weight gain: I have put back on the 2lbs I lost last week.
Waist measurement: 28″
Maternity clothes: 2 new t shirts.
Who knows: Almost everyone.
Looking forward to: Not being sick anymore.
