I've been feeling pretty good since the first trimester ended a couple of weeks ago. My morning sickness and extreme fatigue ended but I have had two cases of stomach things. One lasted ten days long and ended in me being dehydrated and having lower abdominal cramping/contractions for 3 days. My Dr. got onto me for not calling or coming in sooner, but I really felt fine until the cramping started. The other was a wicked case of food poisoning but it was fast and furious and I survived.
I felt the baby kick for the first time on Saturday, April 21st, when I was 15 weeks and 6 days along- alot earlier than I expected. Another thing that I did not expect so early was my belly "popping," at 16 weeks and 3 days! I am really annoyed because I did not pop with Grace until nearly 20 weeks and then it was cute and ALL baby! This time it is not all baby. It's squishy and just not fun. I read that this is normal with 2nd pregnancies though, as the stomach muscles are looser and much more relaxed, but still. I would have liked going for a week or two more. I'm still in all of my normal clothes though and I haven't gained an ounce yet, so that's saying something.
I'm looking forward to this month- finding out the gender, feeling more consistent movement, and having Ian be able to feel the baby!
