So at 21 weeks I am fully in the 2nd trimester. I wrote a post back in the first trimester on how I was finding my 3rd pregnancy quite tough. I thought I was due a little post on how I am feeling now before I’m hitting the 3rd trimester, which really isn’t that far away! Eek!
The 2nd Trimester – How I’m Feeling
I am feeling much more positive about my pregnancy especially after our recent 20 week scan. Whilst I do still have my grumbles about constantly needing to eat and my energy levels still aren’t great, I do feel less lethargic than I did. A lot of people start to bloom in their 2nd trimester but this is definitely not me. It’s my 3rd and final pregnancy and I think I have to hold my hands up I just don’t enjoy being pregnant. I would love to enjoy it but I don’t and I think I have finally accepted that. For me it really is just about the end result – holding my baby in my arms.
In my last pregnancy my skin went really red and blotchy and unfortunately this pregnancy is the same. I am applying concealer at an alarming rate. As soon as Harri was born my skin went back to normal. I’m hoping this will be the same again.
I’m feeling huge already and I can’t even imagine how big I will be by the time November/December comes. I am struggling to fit in any of my clothes so the next few months are going to be interesting.
I can’t believe how fast the time is going, 21 weeks has flew by. My days are a whirl, school, parks, play and looking after my girls. It is funny because it’s not until I lie in bed at night that I start to feel my baby move. I feel like my baby knows that this is our time. Life is busy and chaotic and I’m not counting down the weeks like I was when I was pregnant with Meme but it doesn’t make this baby any less important. In fact, I actually feel even more excited to meet this baby, knowing it’s the final piece of our puzzle – making our family complete.
Almost through my 2nd trimester – not long left!
