16 weeks

September 6, 2012

16 weeks along and still haven't told anyone besides my family. I haven't been to Crookston or talked to any friends from Crookston since I've been pregnant, and I'm not going to do it over the phone or internet. It's getting really hard not to tell people but I don't want work to find out yet so I have good chances of getting this promotion! (I can't say that revealing my pregnancy would hurt my chances, but something is telling me that it would). I have been feeling pretty great energy-wise the last few weeks, but I only make it to the gym about once a week. I still don't have any cravings, and no nausea or vomiting. No stretch marks and no spider veins. When I read the negative side effects of second trimester pregnancy I seem to have little to none of them, so I'm happy everything is going smoothly. The only things I have noticed are that I get back aches when I walk a long distance or if I'm cooking food in the kitchen, and I noticed a few Braxton Hicks contractions yesterday. I'm starting to know what to expect when delivery gets close, but I know BH contractions are nothing compared to real contractions :/.

Adam's mom is so excited to be a grandma, she's told literally everyone. She has even gotten gifts from friends of things saying "grandma". It makes me smile.

In the meantime, I'm going to silently plot how to break this to my coworkers.

Update: I don't know if those were BH contractions lol. I read that it might be ligaments stretching. Either way it was sharp pains that are going to prepare me for labor.
