Pregnancy Weeks 13-16


F ya second trimester! I love you! Things have been going really well in the land of pregnancy.  I feel like I have entered that happy time some pregnant women love.  For one I am actually looking pregnant.  I feel like people are no longer looking at me and asking themselves "Is she fat or is she pregnant?".  Secondly, I feel really good with the exception of a few aches and pains from my expanding belly and hips. The biggest symptom I am having in hunger! I am always hungry. It has been interesting to say the least.  I have been counting calories and watching what I put in my mouth since I was 16 so letting go of that is actually liberating.  I have been very careful to make sure it is not all the cookies and brownies that I have been craving.  I try to save those for the end of the day as a treat to myself and the babe.  The strangest craving for me has been meat. Before I was pregnant I was only eating chicken and fish a few times a week.  Now I want red meat every day.  I am just going with it. To me it just means my body needs protein.  I'll take the red meat back out when I am not pregnant.  Over the past week I have been feeling the babe move.  It is a strange feeling and I was skeptical at first but really I don't know what else it could be.  It almost feels like flutters or something poking at your insides.  I am excited for Bradley to start feeling the baby kick from the outside.  He has been the best partner in this I could have asked for.  He talks to my belly, makes me snacks, and is so forgiving of my up and down moods.  He also likes to tell everyone that I am pregnant. It is so fun to see him so excited. I am still thinking girl but now I am only 80% sure. There is just this inkling in the back that it is a boy.  We find out next month so as long as it is not a dinosaur we are good.
