Pregnancy Update - 1st Belly Pic & Reaching the 2nd Trimester

It isn't the greatest photo of all time...but it's a belly pic.  I figured I had to do one now because last time I started doing photos at only 7 weeks.   When I took this pic I was at 13 weeks and 5 days!

If I compare this photo with ones from my last pregnancy.  I'd say I look to be about18 weeks along.  That is how different this is! I seriously thought I might be having twins before my ultrasound last week.   My low back/pelvic pain and the sharp shooting sciatica pains have already started, making it difficult to walk at times and nearly impossible to bend down to pick something up.

As for the hasn't gone away entirely.  It definitely is better than it was but I have many times throughout the day where I am gagging like crazy.  

I have to keep reminding myself that there IS a purpose for all of this though.  Pregnancy may be very challenging but it is all worth it in the end.  In February of next year I'll get to meet my new little boy or girl! I can't wait! :-)

Tuesday (the 28th) marked the first day of my 2nd trimester!  Today I am 14 weeks, 2 days.  I'm hoping that at least the nausea goes away soon.  I know there are many other challenges to come though.
