So some of are already there and some us and almost there!
How is nausea? Almost gone or gone?
Finally getting your energy back (almost)? Or at least not as tired.
Starting to settle with the fact that your pregnant and not just super sick haha. Your little baby is starting to look like a little baby and is growing rapidly in the second trimester. How fun! Weather is starting to go nice (here at least) so that means.... New clothes! For most first time pregnant women. (Like I did) I went crazy buying new maternity clothes! But then what to do with it all after having the baby... I still wore my maternity pants for a lil while afterwards. Shirts... no.... So I started to donate the clothes I didnt like anymore to a free clinic who helps other women who cant afford clothes etc. I kept the stuff I loved, I have no idea why I just did. Luckily I did, 15 months later i was pregant again. This time I got RID of them all because we werent going to have a third LOL. So now Im back to shopping.
TIPS: Buy the basics first, you can always mix n match with them! Dont go trendy yet! Plain shirts/tanks, white, black a couple fun colors. And TWO pairs of pants... They may be comfortable in the store as your trying them on with a little belly... but as you grow they may not be as comfy! But then when you find that ONE pair pant that are just the most COMFORTABLE pair ever! Buy one or two more of those LOL. Then in my thirdmester I buy the "trendy clothes" buy then im bigger, So I buy a little bigger to "grow" into.
If anyone else has tips just add :)
ACID REFLUX! Heres a couple tips. DO NOT LAY DOWN for at least half hour after you eat. If you get it at night, sleep/lay with a few extra pillows, keep your head and upper body more elevated. Tums. I took them when I was pregnant with my son... and am starting to have to take them again :(
Your lungs are processing more air than they did before your pregnancy. This allows your blood to carry more oxygen to your placenta and the baby and might leave you breathing slightly faster and feeling short of breath. A short, what my daughter calls it from her karate, Peace mind exersize. Three deep breathes will be nice when you feel out of breathe.
There is A LOT more obviously but now I just feel like im babling haha... Please add to the post t help everyone. This is my third but im sure there are still a few things Id LOVE to learn try :)
