This little girl has made a huge improvement in growth this week. It feels like I got bigger overnight and am clearly starting to show in tight clothing. Although I am still in that awkward stage of do people think its fat vs. is she pregnant, I’m owning the bump. The last day or two I have felt some round ligament pain, which is normal in the second trimester as the uterus is growing and stretching. I still exercise regularly and have found myself craving less sweets the more I don’t eat them (rocket science, I know). Although seeing the scale go up in weight can be a little unsettling, I know its the healthiest for the baby and I couldn’t be more OK about that. It’s all for the baby!
