14 weeks

I honestly don't know when the first trimester ends and the second begins. There seems to be some difference of opinion where that extra week goes. But I think since I'm at 14weeks, I'm officially in the second trimester! Wow, me? Really? I thought it'd never get here and now it doesn't feel like it took that long.

So the second trimester is kinda cool, but not really any different from the first since I still don't feel pregnant and I'm still not showing and we still haven't told a lot of people. I am really looking forward to a bump that isn't just blubber and movement whenever that happens. But I know it won't be long now.

And, you all are going to really hate me again. I didn't exactly have it rough during the first trimester and it has gotten even better symptom wise for the second. *ducks to avoid used needles and tampons thrown this way*

I can eat spicy food again (but I think the heartburn might be creeping up on me). My face is getting clearer... although it will take the rest of this pregnancy to get the marks from the 1st tri flare up to fade, assuming I don't flare up again. My hair was a grease pit (even before the pregnancy) but now I can actually go a day between washes (last time that happened I was on spironolactone). Even the constipation issues seem to have dissipated. I have been so lucky to have things go so smoothly so far.

So, 14 down, hopefully 26 to go.

Yay! 14 weeks! Do you have more energy? Because I am thinking about selling my jewelry to pay someone to chew my food for me.

Wow, 14 weeks! Congratulations on being in the second trimester!

Even as someone who had some of the unpleasant symptoms, I will not throw anything your way. I'm glad you did not have it rough! I envy the ability to eat spicy food though. But then again, in Michigan, I can't get good, spicy Mexican food anyhow, so I suppose I'm not missing out. Now, when I was visiting my family in California, I had to pass on the spicy salsa at my favorite taqueria. I was so sad, but the heartburn it would cause could have killed me.

Tums Smoothies are my best friend now. You must try them. So much better than regular tums.
