Notes from the Womb - 16 weeks

I made it to my second trimester, thank the gods! I feel so much better, no more noxious urges to puke my guts out. I am starting to be able to drink water when I am thirsty, rather than just pining for it.  Drinking anything used to make me feel super sick.

My boobs are still growing, if that is even possible. They are crazy huge, and not in a sexy way. They have a freaky network of blue veins which make me look like a road map of an urban metropolis.

The best part about being pregnant has arrived. Earth shaking orgasms, and I meant that to be plural. I learned that my blood volume has increased by 30% which is what I have to thank for these life altering moments. It makes me sad knowing this is my last pregnancy and I only have 6 more months left of debilitating orgasms in my entire life. I try not to think about that and just enjoy it.

I have a few hours of zombie like exhaustion that hits mid day and is gone by tea time. I have not given up my English breakfast tea, these 2 cups a day are what keep me going.

I am still running! This is my biggest accomplishment, other than getting preggers to begin with. My morning exercise routine is what keeps me sane in my busy life. Its like if I get to work out, it does not matter what happens for the rest of the day, I already had my me time.

Stay tuned to week 20 when I find out the gender!!!
