I can’t believe that this week is the last week of my second trimester. Everyone told me that this middle part of the journey would be the “honeymoon period” where I suddenly felt fabulous and had all of my energy back overnight. It didn’t come quite that quickly for me, and although I didn’t really start to feel better until around week 18, this second trimester has still been a true gift.
Thinking about how I looked and felt when my second trimester started, it’s almost unrecognizable from the pregnancy I am experiencing today. I started out sick and uncomfortable, not really ready to embrace my new body, and very unsure of what was still to come. Here I am at 27 weeks, totally in love with my belly and my curves, and excitedly counting DOWN now instead of up!
Now that it’s time to say goodbye to the second trimester, I thought it would be fun to take a look back from weeks 14 to 27. It’s funny to see what I was thinking each week, and how much has changed since the beginning! Not to mention how much my bump has grown (and my hair color has faded!)…
I can only imagine what I’ll be saying in 13 more weeks!
