I just started the second trimester today! 14 weeks. Woo-hoo! 1/3 of the way there. I can't believe how quickly it's gone by so far. Hopefully, it continues that way! Except for the almost constant nausea which I've almost learned to ignore, I'm feeling great.
I NEVER took any belly pictures when I was pregnant with Aiden, but I am going to do it this time. I had an eating disorder throughout high school and college. I had just turned 22 when I found out I was pregnant. Instead of being one of the pregnant moms who doesn't gain enough weight due to their disorder, I went to the other extreme and gained way too much weight. I finally allowed myself to eat things that I wasn't "able" to have before and I lost control. I was extremely embarrassed by how big I was and refused to have any pictures taken.
This time, I am determined to stay healthy. I have been working out regularly and trying to make good eating choices. I know that I've had too many brownies and cupcakes... It's just something I am going to have to work on.
At this point last time, I was already wearing maternity jeans. Not yet! (I'm wearing work out pants in these pictures. You can't really see my belly yet in my regular jeans)
