Hoorah, we’ve made it to the second trimester! In fact we will be 16 weeks on Sunday. I’ve still been very discreet about announcing our pregnancy and only close friends and family know. After keeping it a secret for so long it’s kind of difficult to find the words to announce our pregnancy. I’m sure it’ll be obvious soon and I can give a reason for my increasing waist line. At the moment I’m not sure I look pregnant, more like I’ve spent too much time at the buffet all you can eat. My boobs have also got bigger and for the first time in my life I’m a double d! If only they weren’t so friggin tender to touch. I think my nipples are trying to catch up and they’re really starting to look like mama boobs. All very fascinating.
Last weekend I put on a stretchy black dress that hugged my figure and it really showed off my small bump. I showed my husband, he got such a surprise that he welled up a bit, which was really sweet. It’s so wonderful to see him so excited about this pregnancy. When we were struggling to conceive he would often say that he would still be happy if it was just the two of us but now that I am pregnant it really does show how much he wants this. He’s been so invested in this pregnancy and wants to take weekly photos of my bump and attend all the necessary appointments. He’s one helluva happy man.
Overall things have been going really well. I seemed to have dodged the morning sickness bullet thank goodness! I really don’t know how one could cope with that. I’ve just been feeling extreme tiredness and need to retire to bed by 830pm most nights. My husband has been an amazing support and helping out with chores and cooking as much as he can. I’m probably milking that for all it’s worth and often give the excuse that I’m far too tired to wash up.
For the first time ever during this 5.5 year ttc, things are going to plan and all my pre natal tests are coming back perfectly normal. Yahoo for finally being normal. Long may it last.
