Well the title says it all and I'm so excited to be able to finally share the news with you! We've crossed the halfway point and my bump is just starting to show (highly dependent on clothing, posturing, and proximity to my last meal).
Early on in my pregnancy, my friend Deb told me that the 3 trimesters can be described as dreary, cheery, and weary. I can't comment yet on the third trimester but the first two are pretty accurate descriptions! While I was fortunate with just a brief stint of morning sickness, the first trimester was definitely dreary. There was a constant level of exhaustion. There is also a nagging worry that I think lingers throughout until the baby is born healthy and in your arms. The exhaustion and worry combined with working full time and pretending like everything is normal adds to the dreariness. The second trimester, however, has been very cheery! Increasing energy levels, the emerging bump, and feeling the baby's first kicks all make the recent weeks much more enjoyable.
My clothes are definitely getting tighter and tighter and I'm already feeling the challenge of dressing my changing body. Let's just say I've had to resort to some creative ensembles over the past few months. Now that the secret is out, I can't wait to share more with you in the months to come!
