Second Trimester!!!

Yesterday I hit 13 weeks - aka my second trimester!!  Woohoo!!!!☺

This pregnancy has been a little different than Redmond's was.  With Redmond, I never had any morning/day/night sickness and I had heartburn (although I don't remember exactly when that kicked in, but it was horrible).  Also, (warning: tmi ahead) my breasts were so tender it hurt to walk some days.  So far with this pregnancy I was sick all morning/day/night for about 4 weeks straight.  Thankfully, I never actually got sick, but man there were some days I wished I would.  I've had a little heartburn, but not everyday, maybe only once or twice a week.  And, I'm happily still sleeping on my stomach at 13 weeks, my breasts don't hurt one bit.  Maybe these differences mean we're having a girl?????

One thing that is the same with this pregnancy is that I'll crave something and eat it and eat it and eat it until the thought of it makes me ill.  In the first trimester I was able to eat enough and become sick of:
Sour Cream and Onion Pringles, string beans, salmon....I know there's more, but pregnancy brain has made me forget.

Other foods that I've craved (but haven't eaten a ridiculous amount of):
Fried Rice
Peanut Butter and Crackers
Veggie hot dogs
Blue Cheese

Beer - obvs I'm not drinking it, I can't stand the smell

I used the first 12 weeks as an excuse to eat whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted.  I've gained entirely too much weight already.  I decided two days ago that I really need to snap out of that mind set.  I've started taking Redmond and Oliver on walks every day and really paying attention to what I'm eating.  It's only been two and a half days, but so far so good!
