13 Weeks and A New Season


13 weeks. The 2nd trimester. We have finally arrived. It feels like it was years ago that I found out I was pregnant. And yet each week seems to be going by very fast. My doctor switched up my due date from the original date of July 31st date to August 9th. Which is probably more accurate since Eden 9 days late ;) So maybe I will have an "on time" baby this time!

I am finally Zofran-free and feeling so much better. The days of 24/7 nausea and not consuming anything other than carbs are over. This pregnancy is different, though, and I find that God is doing that to me in His sense of humor to probably prepare me for a completely different child than Eden, ha! I have felt since day 1 that this baby is a boy. And the only thing I want to eat this pregnancy are things that are horrible for you or salty which is the complete opposite of my pregnancy with Eden, which I craved pineapples, carrot juice and lemonade. 

It is such a gift to carry a baby again. It's something I don't take for granted. People always comment that I seem happy when I'm pregnant. I don't know what it is about carrying a child but what is there not to be happy about? I mean, it is a miracle literally right in front of you for you to feel and the world to see. And yes, feel. I've been feeling flutters for about a week and it's so amazing. Just as amazing the second time.

how exciting. i missed those kicks when i had ava. actually funny story, it was a couple of hours after having ava and i was panicking i hadn't felt any kicks and then i realised it was because ava was here...duh! i am going to blame that on just having given birth.

and if i am lucky enough to get pregnant again, i will enjoy it more hopefully as last time i was anxious and wishing it away because six months of sickness and nausea was too much.

you look like you are glowing!

You look great. My favorite part of pregnancy was the early stages of my second trimester. I miss being pregnant and all that movement.
