Ah............... I can't stand CHOCOLATE!
How is this possible?!!! I was a chocolate addict ( dark chocolate )
Time to do a blood test!
( all went well- but my Iron level, was lower as usual, due to the First Trimester!
So pack on MEAT & EGGS!
Before the pregnancy my weight was 54/55kg
In the first trimester almost nothing happen- no weight gain, due to the morning sickness I guess!
In the second trimester I started to put weight on slowly!
I weigh now in my second trimester 64kg
VITAMINS AND SUPPLEMENTS!
During the second trimester we had a car accident. Somebody crashed into us and to make a long scary story short, our car the Jeep ( I used to call our car Jeepita- was damaged beyond....)
Ambulance checked us and later on we went to the hospital.
The safety belt wrapped we very tight on the belly and I was lucky that it did not break my ribs. I felt a pressure on my stomach and slightly panic started to take over. I know I had to stay calm for the baby, my husband and myself.
RESULT: Baby is ok!
At the end of the second trimester you can find out the sex of your baby!
WE WANTED TO KNOW!
So far I was lucky and I fitted in almost all my clothes! Hurra!
Now in week 20 it's time to go shopping! I hate maternity wear! I found nothing looked great!
I am size 8 and I started to buy maxi dresses to feel comfortable ( TIP: Think long term! - you can wear these type of dresses after the pregnancy!
I wear now only one pair of pants ( that I am comfortable in in- grey right top corner in the image below) I normally wear the pants when I go fro a scan. It;s light, organic linen and has a soft cotton band that hold my belly tight and nice. It is size 12 and I feel I loose the pants but once the pregnancy is over, I can roll the waistband down and wear it normal - to me the solution to pregnancy pants!
I have in total a few dresses that I can all wear after the pregnancy ( casual and fancy)
I am wearing a layered dress by Maxwell & Lucy
It;s not a maternity dress! Can you tell I am almost 5 month?
Bye bye high heels and welcome flats! I barely slipped into those! LOL
