What is the second trimester really like?
Weeks 13 – 26, the lovely and energetic SECOND TRIMESTER! I’m again a little behind on this blog post given the fact that I’m due in three weeks but wanted to make sure I posted on all the trimesters.
Again, all my thoughts and advice below is based on my personal experience. Everyone is going to have a different viewpoint on their pregnancy and most likely experience different things so take what you want and leave the rest! When I hit week 12 I finally felt a sigh of relief! No more nausea or feeling like I was a hormonal crazy woman. I finally started to get my energy back and felt like ME again. That’s not to say there were still days during this trimmest that I felt drained and tired, but it was much better than those first 12 weeks that is for sure.
Below are some tips as well as a few myths that I came to find out during my second trimester as I made my way into my third trimester:
The biggest advice I could give anyone on their second trimester is ENJOY it and fit all those workouts in, take your baby moon trip and do all the things that require energy NOW! Because once you get bigger around 32 weeks an up, these things will be a lot harder to do.
