Pregnancy Journal Update – 2nd Trimester Wrap Up

Pregnancy Journal Update – 2nd Trimester Wrap Up

Okay, so I wrote this at the end of the 2nd trimester, but might have forgotten to post it right then {pregnancy brain, anyone?!}.   2nd Trimester Starting Weight: 118ish lbs. 2nd Trimester Ending Weight: 132 lbs. My weight definitely reflected my growing belly this trimester! Between my 20 and 24 week appointments, I gained 8 lbs.

Date: 7/19/16 *2nd trimester* 21 weeks I know I’ve said it before, but the weeks really are just flying right by! I am feeling great {a few aches and pains, but overall I really love being pregnant}.

Pregnancy Journal Update: 16 Weeks

Date: 6/14/16 *2nd trimester* 16 weeks Weight: 119 lbs. {roughly the same as pre-pregnancy} We found out the gender of our baby this week! Up until now, we’ve been using he and she interchangeably {baby most certainly does not want to be called “it”}. I am so excited to know the gender of the baby! We’ve sworn the few family members that know to secrecy until we tell the whole family… so no gender reveals here yet! Hopefully I can keep from slipping for a few weeks. They did say the baby looks…Read more …
