We are there. Passed the horrid first trimester, finally. It feels like I've been pregnant forever although I sometimes forget I'm pregnant. It happened last time and I'll be the size of a house and forget again. Can I blame a bad case of baby brain?
I'm so glad I have energy back. I like the second trimester, apart from the hormones and big belly it's not like pregnancy takes over your body. Exhaustion and nausea don't take over your days like the first and last trimesters. I actually feel human again.
Oh and I've felt human as in womb human moving about. I didn't feel Lufflump until I was eighteen weeks pregnant but I swear I've felt Sesame this week. I know some of you said you felt the second baby a lot earlier than the first and I'm riding on that. I'm adamant I've felt Sesame move around. I like the first feelings as they don't hurt, there's no elbows or feet in awkward places.
My belly is definitely growing as are my boobs. Not complaining about the latter although I liked it when they weren't as sensitive. I've bought a Belly Belt pack so I can still wear my loved jeans. It works out a hell of a lot cheaper than buying maternity jeans too so the mister is extremely happy. I've also invested in some longer t-shirts that I'll be able to wear throughout my pregnancy. I still haven't bought anything else maternity (apart from a pair of jeans that collect every bit of lint and two maternity bras) but I think I'll wait until I'm bigger.

Please excuse the belly shots the mister wasn't home to take them.
