Now that I am in my second trimester, it definitely feels way better than what it felt during the first few weeks.  At least I eat better now and I am less tired.  Also, the nausea has gone (hopefully for good) and I can cook again (hubby is more than happy to know that).

However, I do feel “transformed” as most pregnant women would feel.  I’d thought it would feel the same but I feel somehow different, though I can’t put my finger on it. (Pssst…the photo above was taken close to 3 weeks ago)

  • Baby bump has grown (but of course!), and my innie belly button is slowly but surely beginning to become an outie.
  • Boob size increase (good)… but butt size increase (not so good)
  • Blemishes and intermittent pimples on face, due to hormonal changes.
  • Itchy skin, especially around belly area.  Using my favorite stretch oil to minimize this.
  • Slightly healthier and fuller hair felt.  Hopefully this is a permanent feature.
  • Still waiting for that “pregnant glow” to set in.

I do feel healthier this pregnancy around though, must be the workouts I have been keeping up at the gym.  I’ve lowered my weights and I tend to get tired more easily, but I’m listening to my body all the time, taking a rest when I need to, and fueling my body with plenty of fluids.

I tried RPM (spinning) again last week and was horrified to discover that I can no longer cycle properly anymore, because every time my legs move up, it touches my expanding belly.  Might it be a seating position on the bike we can adjust?  Well, thankfully today I tried again with readjusting the seat position (I needed a higher handle position!), and it was great.

Looking forward to the coming months!

    Great to know that you still able to exercise during pregnancy. Both my previous pregnancies… I had placenta previa which I couldn’t even walk much as well! I really miss out the luxury to exercise while I’m preggy. Appreciate it mommy!

    The Giddy Tigress says: It took a lot of strength and willpower to continue with exercise though, but I love how you term it as a *luxury*!”
