I am in my second trimester; our baby is due in November. I am happy and excited and anxious and nervous and everything else.
Since being pregnant, I've experienced tremendous mood swings and a serious lack of energy. I know it's my hormones going wild and my body working hard. But still - I found it not too easy to adjust to the change and felt even cranky about my extreme tiredness and desire to sleep all the time (thankfully I escaped the dreaded "morning sickness" - experiencing only mild nausea in the late evenings - when there was not much going on).
I avoided writing here because I felt too exhausted most days - taking afternoon naps when I could and going to bed super early (even when we were in Brazil!). I also feared I would end up writing a lot of bleeeeurgh entries and the world would see I had become a proper Ms. Grrrrumpy. As for the drawing blog - well , I couldn't even bear to see it, let alone post things on it. Which I know, does not augur well for my New Year's Resolution or intention to get back to creativity.
Thankfully I'm feeling much-much better these days: my wild mood swings have, for the most part disappeared; my appetite is almost back to normal (no more funny and strong cravings for hamburgers or Malaysian food or carbs) and best of all; various parts of my body have stopped hurting. I suppose this is what people refer to the "honeymoon" second trimester.
