Not a whole lot new to report. I’m feeling GREAT lately – lots of energy, good mood, no bad symptoms at all. In short, the second trimester is definitely living up to its reputation for being the best trimester!
The only thing that’s been bugging me is my back. It seems like I’m always stiff and tense, especially in my neck and mid-back. I’m trying not to lay flat on my back too much (did you know that “Lying on your back for an extended period of time could interfere with the flow of blood and nutrients to the placenta and your developing baby”?), but it’s hard to be limited to just side sleeping.
Still not wearing maternity clothes yet – my weight’s been hovering around the same numbers for the past few weeks, and that weight is still less than I weighed around this time last year! So I’ll put off spending our precious money until I absolutely have to ;)
That’s about it. There’ll be another doctor’s appointment soon to check up on the baby, at which point I’m sure he’ll tell us everything is lovely :)
