The upside of second trimester morning sickness is that I have regained bladder control, so I no longer pee myself when I puke! Isn’t that nice? Funny enough the ongoing morning sickness really no longer bothers me at all. I mean I no longer get sick every day, and it is only once a day before I even eat breakfast, so really just not so bad at all. All of a sudden this blissful place of second trimester is really making me all yummy all the time. And now I am just endlessly grateful to be pregnant, to be having a happy and healthy and stress-free pregnancy. And what is morning sickness next infertility? What is morning sickness next to to what I have watched my friends go through, loosing babies, failed cycles and the fear of never holding their precious child in their arms.
My belly is suddenly growing at a scary rate. Up until the last two weeks I was gaining about a centimetre around my waist every two weeks or so, suddenly last week I gained 3cm in ONE week. The weight gain is fairly steady and I am STILL totally on track for where I should be in terms of gaining weight early and not too much. I can’t believe I am still tracking on the line of that graph I created 22 crazy weeks ago.
The nursery is coming along very nicely and I would hope to be loading the photos of the completed mural next week. Then just waiting for the furniture and to get the bedding made up. We had the sample of the embroidery that is being done on the bedding dropped off last week and it is all going to work so well. I am getting very excited.
Two more sleeps to our next scan, can’t wait to see our little wrigglers again. And less than five weeks left of work then I can concentrate in ernest on my scrapbooking, which is also coming along nicely.
A bit of a random update, but it’s about as ordered as my brain can cope with at the moment…
