During my second trimester Alex gave me an incredible gift. He planned a babymoon to Greece. We had an amazing time (next blog post is all about our babymoon!) and Alex took such great care of me. He was incredibly patient as I waddled around the streets and took twice as long to climb the stairs, oh so many stairs!
Everyone says the second trimester is the best, for me this couldn’t have been more true. The exhaustion went away, the morning sickness stopped and the nausea was rare. I could finally function like a person again. I had a burst of energy and never stopped smiling.
My second trimester started in October and we had decided we would let our families and the world in on our little secret! I bought a t-shirt that said “Not a food baby” and wore it around my siblings. Everyone was so excited! Alex came up with a sweet social media announcement and finally the word was out.
We polled our families and most thought we were having a girl. We called the baby Clarp and everything was magical. Alex felt Clarp kick for the first time while we were in Greece and so began the game of “run to me, the baby is kicking” which lasted until the minute our Clarpy was born.
Here I am at the beginning of my second trimester and the end.
