(Sam wanted a picture of his belly too, he's kind of blocking mine. Oh well.)
This pregnancy has been fairly similar to my first, very little morning sickness (just a tiny bit more this time). I felt nauseous most evenings during my first trimester and into the second. But now I have been feeling fine. I've been trying to stay active, but I do get tired much quicker now and my feet start hurting if I walk/stand too much.
I've made a list of my Top 5 Pregnancy Must-Haves (in no particular order)
Gummy Prenatal Vitamins: Doctors now recommend you take a prenatal vitamin plus a DHA supplement. The regular pills tasted like tanning lotion to me, and I struggled to take them each day without feeling sick. Then I found the Gummy Vitamins! They have the recommended DHA and folic acid etc. etc. and don't taste horrible. They are actually kinda good.
The Belly Book: This is a scrapbook type book that lets you record information about your pregnancy. I used one with Sam and like being able to look back and compare the pregnancies. I didn't buy a new copy for this pregnancy, but have been adding in details for pregnancy #2.
Smart Phone: I've been using my smart phone for different reasons throughout my pregnancy. First, there's fun little pregnancy apps that give me information or help me remember how far along I am (it's hard to remember with #2). Next, it helps me keep track of my doctor's appointments. Last, and probably most importantly it keeps me busy while I wait and wait and wait at the doctor's office. I like having a smart phone so I can play Words with Friends, or check Facebook or Instagram while I am waiting.
Birthday Cake Oreos: If you haven't tried these, you are missing out. I linked to the amazon page, but I don't actually buy my cookies from amazon.... But I've only found them at Walmart. They are delicious. (I lied, I said these were in no particular order, but these have been my #1 Pregnancy Must-Have)
