Hi Everyone!! Check out this Chapter 5: Emotion City. I didn’t think feeling nauseous and tired all the time could get worse, but then the second trimester hit! Even though physically I’m feeling better (thank God), and I know it’s all because of an influx of hormones, I can’t help but feel extra sensitive, especially when the sun goes down.
The hormonal shifts and body changes that happen during pregnancy can create new cravings, discomforts, and changes to your typical nutrient needs. For instance, you might get sick thinking about your typical favorite snack or meal and suddenly want something you’ve never craved before.
For some of you, your first trimester was a breeze! You may not have even known you were pregnant until like 2 months in! Well, NOT ME! I literally found out as early as one can and immediately felt the dreaded morning sickness! My first trimester was a real pain in my a**.
This post is a first in our baby essentials series by Monica Banks, founder of Gugu Guru – the ultimate baby registry discovery site for style-savvy moms.
My team at Gugu Guru is over-the-moon thrilled to be collaborating with Whitney on this baby registry series during such an exciting time in her life. We are very excited to take Whitney’s day to day style and translate into her new life as a soon-to-be-mama.
My LA based stylist, Caley Rinker, just had a baby about 6 months ago so who better to fill me in on all the best maternity collections out there! Whenever I find one I love I will be sure to let you know!!!
Once my second trimester started I started to feel well enough to get back into working out. However, at this point I had already gained about 15 lbs. and my already super tight work out clothes just WERE NOT feeling comfy. Now, I had already loved Beyond Yoga (their fabrics are the softest ever) but Caley introduced me to BEYOND THE BUMP by Beyond Yoga and I want to live in it. The two pieces I have bought in every color are the Spacedye Bump Leggings
So, I haven’t really had those TYPICAL cravings like needing to dip pickles in ice cream or if you are a crazy person like my sister in law, craving PAPER!!! But there are a few things that got me through my first trimester and are continuing to be staples in my second.
When two people love each other so much and the love becomes too great to fit inside both people, it spills over into a THIRD person. This is how I am going to explain where babies come from to the little baby that is now growing inside my belly because Timmy and I are PREGNANT!
