[Emma thinking she was getting a treat out of this strange situation]
Week 14! Officially the start of the second trimester. Oh my gosh, I feel amazing. What a relief to be through the first trimester uncertainty and nausea/fatigue/crappy feeling. I sleep a normal amount of hours, I crave all sorts of food all the time, and I hardly feel nauseated. I still have the mood swings which Matt is unbelievably understanding of. I would usually get a bit...shall we say... "cranky" when I didn't have enough food in my system...but now it's just exaggerated by about a million. When I need food.... I need food, otherwise we all suffer. He just kindly reminds me... you're pregnant!...Oh yup, I sure am.
At my work I have about a handful of other pregnant women to talk to about pregnancy symptoms, excitement of our lives changing, and what not. It's a blast. A very pregnant nurse (who looks like she's happily about to burst) mentioned that our children will be in the same school year. I just about had a coronary. My little bump with a heartbeat is going to be a child in school?! What?! That's crazy. I seem years apart from these women who are about to have babies...I only wish I was in their place...able to meet their babes for the first time, but in reality we aren't that far apart from each other. I just feel like each week of this pregnancy is eons long, which I love savoring every part. But seriously, we're having a kid too, not just a baby? Mind blowing.
