Thoughts: excuse me but am I really half way through this pregnancy?! I am soaking up every minute of this 2nd trimester energy while I have it. We've been busy inside and outside of the house, crossing off projects from our to do list. This has been a really enjoyable week of pregnancy
Baby: He is the size of a banana this week and 10.5 oz. He's now producing meconium (which Jon loves saying) and his developing taste buds allow him to taste whatever I am eating. He's developed a sleep cycle and now sleeps 12-14 hours a day.
Symptoms: I tried quitting Zofran cold turkey and that lasted about 1.5 days before I caved and took a pill. I think it would be easier if I was able to be home all day but I work outside the home and wasn't able to concentrate with the nausea and looming vomit. It's crazy how powerful (and helpful) 1/2 a pill can be. For now, I am taking it once a day and feeling awesome! Tailbone pain has been intense this week and I'm guessing it is here to stay. My belly button is starting to flatten out and become an outie too.
Movement: I thought it would be hard to tell the difference between baby movements and everything else that's going on but I definitely know when he's moving around. I notice it mostly when I am sitting sedentary at work and right before we go to sleep and are laying in bed. Jon had his hands on my belly last week and said he felt 3 little thumps! When baby is really active, Jon puts his hands on my belly and feels little kicks...it is the best feeling. There are times where I almost feel sick like I've lost my tummy on a rollercoaster because he is flipping and moving so much.
Workouts: We have been out of town for 4 days (returning late tonight) and haven't really worked out much. Last week I got a few weights in and been going on short walks but I've been super active around the house rather than in the gym.
