5 months down - so far, so good!

Wednesday, August 08, 2012

I'm now offiically 5 months pregnant! It's hard to believe my pregnancy is half over already. Seems like it's going fast. It's been an easy pregnancy so far - no morning sickness, only a few headaches. The fatigue in the 1st trimester has mostly subsided. I'm enjoying being pregnant, especially when I feel my little girl move around inside me. DH hasn't been able to feel her move yet, but he will soon. We're both so excited!

All the tests and ultrasound exams have been good. My age is the only risk factor at this point. I've been eating mostly healthy (with some splurges) and have continued going to belly dance class with only a few modifications (like no more moves on tip toes). And I've been still going on (almost) weekly walks, though I can usually only make it 2 miles before pooping out rather than the usual 4.

I'm happy with the way my body is changing. DH is loving that I've gone up a whole cup size in bras :P And I love my round baby bump. It showed up fast b/c I'm so short & petite. People keep asking if I'm having twins b/c it's so big already. Hopefully, I'll still like it when I'm 8 months and it's twice as huge :O.

While I can't wait to meet and hold my baby girl, I'm also wishing the second trimester would last longer. I'm treasuring it while I can!

    I love seeing your ultrasound picture! I can't wait to get one like this of mine that is in my now. I'm only at 6 weeks now though. ;) I have a 5 yr old son, though. So how old are you? You didn't mention it here and I didn't catch it in your page.. but I'll go look again. I am 43. I had my son at 39. I think I'm one of the oldest pregnant mamas on here. :)
