Pregnancy Update – 2nd Trimester

I am at the final stages of 2nd trimester and realised I have not talked much pregnancy on this platform. Perhaps it is time after 7 months to share a word or two. You know what they say better late than ever.

Well, let’s talk first trimester briefly despite it feels so long ago. I admit that I found both pregnancies first trimester the hardest. You just cannot beat hormones and you cannot predict what the first few weeks will bring. I experienced significant nausea and much stronger and longer than with Liam. I was not getting sick as much just simply 24/7 nausea. I celebrated my birthday with friends and then the delicious truffle pasta ended up in toilet and I could barely eat my birthday cake. Well, I am not here to sugar coat things am I? I was waking up at night, running to toilet and then nothing. So the sleep was not great either. I had to eat constantly as that made me feel slightly better but sadly only for short periods of time. That resulted in weight gain which was bigger than my previous pregnancy.

I had to drive everywhere as walking made me feel sick so most school runs were happening by car. I admit that I felt lot of depression first pregnancy and luckily not so much this time however everything and everybody annoyed me. It is just shocking what it can do to your mind and body. I learnt my lesson first time round and did not push myself to things, I rested more, slept if could and just went with the flow. There are so many changes in your body, hormones are all over the place so you cannot blame yourself for how you feel.

Well and now I am almost at the end of second trimester and I feel much better however I felt so much more energetic when expecting Liam. Most mums are telling me that it because I already have another child. Well, possibly. I also thing it is due to age as I am simply older than I was before. However, second trimester is my favourite and was with Liam too. The energy kicks in, you are not as big as third trimester and you start to enjoy things again. My sacral chakra feels in balance and that means I have lot of creativity coming out and I just feel more me again. I cannot do things every day so I really decide carefully what I am doing and who with and really try to prioritise. And I also started to gather things I need for little one’s arrival. We decided that we do not want to know the gender so really focusing to shop for neutrals that will suit both boy or girl. Although my intuition tells me it will be … (well I keep it for myself). At my 20 weeks scan they were shocked I did not want to know and kept suggesting they will put it in the envelope in case I will change my mind. LOL

Well, 3 months to go is not that long so hopefully time will fly and I can enjoy my last trimester as much as possible.

Jsem u konce druheho trimestru a uvedomila jsem si, ze jsem se k tehotenstvi na blogu moc nevyjadrila. Mozna je v sedmem mesici uz trochu pozde, ale vite jak se rika, ze lepsi pozdeji nez vubec.

Zacnu asi prvnim trimestrem, prestoze mi to prijde tak davno. Stejne jako u prvniho tehotenstvi mi to prislo velmi narocne. Hormony jsou opravdu nepredvidatelne a dokazi divy, ne vzdy velmi pozitivni. Asi nejsilnejsim symptomem byly neustavajici nevolnosti a trvaly docela dlouho. Asi do 17 tydne. Nezvracela jsem az tak, ale bylo mi spatne i v noci. Casto jsem se budila, utikala na zachod a nic. Musela jsem jist mnohem vic a casto, to mi trosku pomahalo, ale bohuzel jenom na chvili. To se sazmorejme ukazalo na vaze a pribrala jsem mnohem vic nez kdyz jsem cekala Liama.

Narozeniny jsem oslavila tak, ze lanyzove testoviny nakonec stejne skoncily v zachode a dort jsem sotva ochutnala. Opravdu zeny nikdy nevi, co s nima zacatek tehotenstvi udela. Ale jsem rada, ze pres nevolnosti a jine klasicke symptomy probehl prvni trimestr v poradku. Poucila jsem se z prvniho tehotenstvi a opravdu zpomalila. Pokud to slo, spala jsem, nenutila se do niceho, musela jsem vic jezdit autem, protoze pri chozeni mi bylo neskutecne zle, takze vetsinu dni jsem vozila Liama i do skolky. U prvniho tehotenstvi jsem prozivala docela depresivni stavy, tomu jsem se nastesti tentokrat vyhnula, ale presto mi vsechno a vsichni lezli na nervy haha. Jeste ze tuhle fazi mam za sebou.

Druhy trimester je temer u konce a nechce se mi ani verit, jak to utika. Stejne jako u Liamka si toto obdobi vice uzivam. Sakralni cakra je krasne v balancu a to se u me projevi zvysenou kreativitou, ktera byla v predchozim trimesteru na bode mrazu. Mam vice energie, ale priznam se, ze zdaleka ne tak moc jako u Liamka. Spousta maminek tvrdi, ze je to tim, ze uz jedno dite mam. Ja si osobne myslim, ze je to vekem. Kazdopadne tim, ze me nektere dny vice vycerpavaji, opravdu si vybiram co delam a s kym. Netlacim na sebe a posloucham sve telo jak to nejlepe jde. Dopravam si tehotenske masaze a staram se o sebe. Tentokrat jsem se take rozhodla, ze nechci vedet pohlavi. Na ultrazvuku ve 20. tydnu mi porad rikali, ze mi to napisou do obalky, ale ja se nedala. Vim, ze by me to lakalo a tim bych si zkazila skutecne prekvapeni. Je mi vlastne jedno jestli to bude holka nebo kluk, protoze zdravi je na prvnim miste. A tak porizuju hlavne neutralni veci v prirodnich barvach.

Takze vzhuru do posledni faze, ktera snad probehne v poradku a bez komplikaci. Tri mesice nejsou tak dlouha doba, takze se musim predspat:) Kez by to tak slo :)
