The pregnancy has been pretty uneventful thus far. I've felt great. Just a little nausea in the first trimester, but nothing really notable. Honestly, I'm so busy working part-time and giving piano lessons and staying at home full-time, that I haven't given this baby/pregnancy a TON of thought. Not to say we're not super excited--we definitely are!
I had my 21 week appointment earlier this week and everything looked/sounded great. Just like Gemma, this baby is keeping us guessing with its heartbeat--in the 140s. My weight gain is completely different this time around. With Gemma, I think I gained about 1 pound my first trimester and then caught up my second trimester. This pregnancy, however, my weight gain has been a little more consistent. I would still say I've gained about the same amount of weight at this point as with my first pregnancy.
I've been staying fairly active, playing volleyball once a week, chasing a toddler around, and doing this video 2-3 times a week. Overall, I'm feeling pretty good, but I do have evenings where I feel like the day just wiped me out.
And, here is the only photo I have taken of myself while pregnant with baby number #2.
