First Trimester Different 2nd Time Around

by Nikki Montgomery

 I am excited to announce that Josh and I are expecting our 2nd baby in late October/early November. 

I'm 13 weeks along and feeling good. Started out a little rougher than when I was pregnant with Mia, but I'm starting to get some energy back and I'm over the nausea. Unfortunately I've been getting headaches a lot lately. I have suffered from migraines since I was a teenager, but when I got pregnant with Mia they went away and I hardly had headaches since, but they're back! I had a migraine so bad a couple weekends ago that I almost couldn't get up and around. My doctor said it's pretty common for women at the beginning of the 2nd trimester to get headaches so he gave me a prescription to take if they get really bad otherwise just Tylenol.

So far so good. As you can see I'm showing already so my wardrobe is shrinking quickly. Too small for maternity clothes and too big for many of my regular clothes. It's not real obvious yet so people just think you're fat. This stage is a bummer, but it won't last long. Everyone keeps telling me you get so much bigger so much faster with baby number 2.
