Well folks, we've hit the 3rd trimester! This pregnancy is going by so fast! 2nd trimester was good to me. :) A few weeks in, the fatigue and food aversions that I was feeling at the beginning of the pregnancy went away. Aaaaand that's when I kind of turned into a ravenous teenage boy. lol.
I was in a constant state of being hungry. Seriously - constant. That has *thankfully* subsided a bit over the last few weeks. I still snack throughout the day, but I don't feel like I have an unquenchable appetite anymore. :)
My belly is in major growth mode these days. :) It's so much fun. I love that Nolan is big enough to point out where he's at in my belly and feel him kick around in there. I feel him move throughout the day, but he is most active in the evening after dinner. Ryan felt his first kicks from the outside at 22 weeks which was a cool moment. :) I'm just now starting to actually see the movement on my belly, and I'm so excited for more of that.
Let's see, what else...I'm getting plenty of rest even though I've had to adjust to sleeping on my side and I'm getting up 2-3 times a night to go to the bathroom. :) Heartburn has become a daily thing, so I'm hopeful that the little guy is growing a nice head of hair. Elias is starting to get harder to chase around since he's getting more mobile and heavier as I'm getting bigger and...less agile. haha. But I'm happy that he keeps me moving, I think it's good for me. Overall, I'm feeling great and still loving every minute of pregnancy. I'm truly thankful that God is giving me the opportunity to go through this. <3
I know I've already posted the first picture below, but I thought it would be a nice comparison. :) So this is me at 13 weeks, which was the start of my second trimester.
