The second trimester finally arrives. Gradually the sickness dissipates and you begin to feel like yourself again though with notable differences. You are wearing your favorite trousers a bit lower (more comfortable this way) and your breasts are increasingly robust. You got in the car yesterday and had to adjust the seat back because you felt the push of your little being against your ribs. It’s a little milestone for you. To this point you’ve only felt the baby when lying flat in bed, now she or he is commanding more of you each day. It’s a lovely feeling and you pause with hands on belly; you can’t wait to see your little one. Tomorrow is your 1st ultrasound and you and daddy 2B can’t agree whether to find out the sex or not. You’ve been shopping for baby. You believe that you are already nesting. You are feeling very protective of your little bump. Sometimes you seem a bit too emotional (says your hubby). Your mother tells you to cherish these final months, “Your life will never be the same (its not all about you anymore sweetheart)”. By the end of this trimester you will both look and feel pregnant. You read it and you understand that its imminent, yet it seems so far off in the distance.(to be continued…Sorry Mom its not Netflix!)
