I haven’t been able to document my pregnancy as much this time around, but when I realized I had hit the 20 week mark I forced myself to take a moment to reflect (and take a photo). I remember feeling like it took forever to get to 20 weeks with Faith, and now I’m here again in the blink of an eye.
The first trimester was rough, mainly with the fatigue which was harder to combat with a 1 year old keeping you busy, and she’s still not sleeping through the night. A mixture of teething and developmental milestones and possibly some leaps going on, she’s just been a terrible sleeper. My appetite also dropped significantly, much to my doctor’s dismay. At my last appointment, I had dropped 2 pounds since the beginning of my pregnancy so the doctor gave me full permission to eat anything my heart desired. Unfortunately it didn’t desire much in the first trimester and I’ve been more picky about what I want to eat. If I don’t eat exactly what I want, I’m not satisfied or I don’t eat much. I had some food aversions but I was mostly just picky in general. Though I have been craving more savory food as opposed to sweet like last time.
