Second Trimester – 14 and 15 Weeks

Week 14:

Baby: Size of a beet. Little one is growing!!

Fitness: Only 2 runs this week = 7.7 total miles. We had a lot going on at school / work so I was definitely slacking.

Weight Gain: I’m officially up 15 pounds. Already. Ugh. But the good news is that I’m less hungry. I honestly think it is mostly water weight but we will see. I bought a 24 hour urine test to see if I’m starting to become pre-eclamptic (not a word). I’m hoping for clear results.

Food Cravings: Nothing really. Except cheese. I could eat cheese all day (but I only allow myself 2 babybels a day…)

Food Aversions: Processed food. Specifically fast food. The only fast food item I can stand is fries and even that is not easy to finish.

Symptoms: Hip pain. Weight gain. Moodiness.

Week 15:

We were in spring break for the week and I decided to drive down to Huntsville, Alabama to help husband get settled in for his acquisition (new job) training. And to visit some old friends (they’re the best). I loved my time down there… but I do not recommend driving 10 hours while pregnant. My hips were so SO sore the next day. 20 hours total of driving (there and back a week later) = no fun for me.

Had some fancy soda in lieu of beer for St Patrick’s Day:

Baby: Size of an avocado

Fitness: 3 runs. Lots of boring treadmills runs but I’m just glad to be moving. 9.4 total miles

Weight Gain: Still sitting at 15 lbs up.

Food Cravings: Fruity, chewy candy. Sprees. Mike and Ikes. Zours.

Food Aversions: Fast food. Except fries

Symptoms: Mood swings. Hip pain. Backaches. And I SWEAR I felt the baby move once. It may have been gas… but I want to believe it was the baby!
