Today marks 15 weeks. and I must say that it’s nice to finally be considered a part of the second trimester now. My OB said week 14 was the second, but websites vary from 12-15 weeks. You’d think someone could get that figured out and regulate it across the pregnancy world? Oh well, I’m finally there, officially, on all accounts.
Other than my stuffy head, bloody nose thing I’ve had going on, I am also feeling more “growing pains” around my abdomen. I guess the uterus popping up and out causes quite a stir in there. Plus the gas contributes to the fun. I plan to relax (not get off of the couch) for the rest of the week to help ease the discomfort.
Other than the normal “i’m tired” complaint, I still have my “my nipples are sensitive” complaint. Although, I’m not really complaining. I still love all of my symptoms and would never be mad at them. 🙂 All the websites say that your breasts should not be as sore, and they are right, my breasts aren’t that sore, but the nipples are still super sensitive. I need some new bras, but I’ve tried on about ten, of all different shapes and sizes, and none of them are fitting correctly. I’ve heard this complaint from all of my friends who have been pregnant in the past. I’m not sure what to do. If I just go buy normal bras in a bigger size, I’m going to have to find a place who sells E’s and above. I started as a DD and I know I’ve gone up at least two sizes. Maybe I just won’t ever leave the house… problem solved… no bra needed!
Here is my 15 week belly. It is noticeably bigger to all around me. It looks the same in these pictures though. I can feel it getting heavier when I’m sleeping on my side. 🙂
Next appointment: January 10th for a 16 week checkup. Can’t wait! I’m getting antsy to hear the heartbeat, and have some satisfaction that everything is still going well in there.
