14 weeks - (baby #2) SECOND TRIMESTER!!

How far along: 14 Weeks - Hello second trimester!! And Happy Halloween! (PS - I'm supposed to be Juno for Halloween in the picture)
Maternity clothes: I bought a new pair of jeans and jean shorts - I may look ridiculous, but boy are the comfortable!
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: Sleep is good, so long as I take Dyclegis #addicted
Best moment of the week: I've had so much fun with Harper this week. Her personality is really starting to shine. We went to MGM (Disney's Hollywood Studios) this week and watched a bunch of shows. My favorite was the Frozen Sing-a-long show. Watching this little girl sing along to the songs made me tear up. Maybe it's the hormones, but I think it's because I'm witnessing this tiny baby I gave birth to just yesterday (or so it feels like) turn into a little human right before my eyes. This week we also went to Green Meadows petting zoo, and Harper just loved touching, feeding, and holding the animals. Finally, this weekend I brought out my giant box full of my old Barbies and accessories. She is in love! I had to pinch myself as I sat in her room, surrounded by toys as I played with Barbie with my daughter. Harper is definitely a girly girl and I absolutely adore this stage.
Worst moment of the week: None
Running/Workouts: This weekend I ran 8 miles on Saturday and 6 miles on Sunday, for a total of 30 miles this week. This was my last longish runs before the half-marathon next week. It's not pretty but I'm hopeful I'll finish next weekend...
Missing anything: No
Movement: No
Things that make me queasy: I had felt pretty good this week. I actually seem to feel worst in the evenings, but overall I'm feeling good.
Energy level: Pretty tired. When I take a step back and look, I don't know if it's the pregnancy or if it's life...finishing my Doctorate (graduating in 46 days!!!), finishing clinical hours, work, holidays, being a mom to a 2 year old, being a wife, and trying to spend as much one on one time with Harper. So it's a very rewarding exhaustion for sure!
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding ring on or off: On
Mood: Happy
Looking forward to: Going to Savannah, Georgia this week for the half marathon. Harper will be staying home with my Mom, so this will be our first time leaving Harper.
Something surprising about being pregnant with baby #2: I am happy we made it to the second trimester. From what I remember from last time, the first trimester drags on the longest, and the last two fly by. Even with all the nausea, exhaustion and discomforts, I absolutely LOVE being pregnant. Love it. I am trying to hard to savor every single second.
