    Hello Second Trimester!

  2. Carolyn says:

    Nice update, you look great!

  3. You look so great! And I’m right there with you on not finding anything appetizing. I’m still having such a hard time eating and as a result am not eating enough (or very well, for that matter). Sigh.

    Looking forward to hearing what you’re having!

  4. Rachel says:

    You’re looking really good! I totally know what you mean about nothing sounding appetizing — I’m totally at that point now too. I never had a problem with that first pregnancy but this time… So glad to see you’re looking well!

    Adorable bump! I can’t believe you’re already just about out of the first Trimester [I go by 13 weeks, but I know everybody/everywhere goes by different weeks between 12-14 weeks]!! I have to say though, my need to use the bathroom never decreased or went away when I hit my 2nd trimester. If anything, it got worse. I’ve been LOVING ice, ice cold water [any drink I have has to have a lot of ice, but I try to stick to water more then anything], so I am sure that doesn’t help frequent trips to the bathroom – Especially at night. No matter how much I drink during the day, most nights I am SO THRISTY and I chug a big ol’ glass of ice water as we crawl into bed. It’s the worst, because I know I’ll be up throughout the night peeing. Not complaining though!

    I also had to go into maternity clothes around 12 weeks this time around – But once the bloat went away and my belly moved up more, I was able to squeeze back in non-maternity clothes. I am almost 27 weeks and I’ve been able to squeeze into some non-mat pants/shorts for 4-6 weeks now. . . The muffin top isn’t very attractive, but living in HI having that extra thick fabric on me makes me SO MUCH hotter!! Other then that, I find maternity clothes very comfy too. . .

    And as for the iPhone case. . . I use an Otterbox. It is ALWAYS on my phone. I only take it off at night, when there are no toddler hands around and I am resting on the couch, to clean the case and my phone a bit. When I bought my phone, the sells guy had an otterbox on his iPhone and he literally tossed it over his shoulder onto the ground with no damage. Having a 2 year old around – I think it’s the best thing for my iPhone [and I admit that I am a phone dropper, as hard as I try not to be]. I would LOVE to have one of those fun and cute cases – But more then that, I would love to keep my phone NOT shattered 🙂

    I’m just jealous you HAVE a bump! (and a cute one, at that!)
    I’m just feeling a little extra “chub” around the middle … hoping baby will POP out there soon!

    Awww you’re looking so cute – glad to hear you’re doing well.

  8. molly says:

    You look so cute! Isn’t it amazing how much you show fast the second time around?!

  9. You are simply adoralbe!!
