Second Trimester!

There seems to be a little discrepancy on when the second trimester actually starts, but I've always believed it was from 13 weeks - so I'm sticking to it. This morning, I hit that magic number & that magic stage of pregnancy. It's onwards and upwards (& hopefully outwards, belly wise) from here!

I've had some pretty crazy cramping over the last few days, but otherwise, have felt really well. The tiredness is back, however I blame that mostly on starting back at work last week. I am going to find the next few months really tough, I can already feel my energy and enthusiasm waning a little bit. I love my kiddies, but I really hope this term by goes by quickly. I just want to be at Christmas, already.
In the home and wife department, I've been a bit of a slacker. I have barely cooked in weeks, because there is nothing that I feel like eating - my poor husband. I've let things get messy, which is unlike me. Yesterday I had a burst of energy; I just wanted to tidy something. Since my kitchen has been neglected for a while, I decided to start there. A few hours later, every cupboard was shining, the pantry was organised, and I think it looked beautiful!
I kind of hope I have some more of these little energy bursts, because I have plenty of other rooms in the house that need a little TLC right now. One room at a time, right? :) I think I'll do the dining/lounge room next.

Yay for second trimester! It's great that you are feeling a little bit better - I'm sure J has been super-understanding after everything that you have been through for your little one!

Ha! Yes, I love how doctors say the first "month" of pregnancy is actually 6 weeks long. Glad you're feeling better! I've definitely found that the total exhaustion fades after the first trimester.

Welcome to the second trimester! This one is supposed to be more fun, so your energy should be back soon. :) Your kitchen looks wonderful, by the way.

Congratulations on reaching the 2nd trimester - that is a really big milestone! Yay for the cleaning energy - I wish I could find some of that :-)

Why does it have to be an 11 week term? Term 1 is also 11 weeks. I'll have pass on some great info on extending mat leave. Cleaning and cooking just make me throw up. The husband has been alone in that department. Bending over makes me throw up.....sigh when does that end......

That is a big accomplishment. Welcome to second trimester!!

Congrats on getting to the second trimester! Just a few more weeks and you'll be feeling tiny little baby flutters!

Do you plan to return to work after the baby arrives, or be a SAHM? Or is it too soon to be thinking about it?

Yay for the second Tri!

Yay!!!! You made it to 13 weeks!! I know how you feel about the exhaustion! I am 12 weeks and have just about zero energy. Love, your kitchen, I always feel better when I get some cleaning done...until it's dirty again haha!
