Being pregnant is still pretty great! I hit the four month mark yesterday, almost without realizing it because I’m bad at math. (Thanks, Nick, for pointing out that 16 weeks is the same as four months.)
My darker blonde roots continue to grow as I haven’t dyed my hair since January. I was in a bit of denial about my belly actually being visible, but I realize it’s now quite a little bump. The only cravings I’ve had so far have been for pizza at about 10pm last Monday, and french fries whenever I’m in a restaurant and smell them. Other than that, I’m very fortunate to work from home and so I’m able to make myself healthy meals all day.
The little mini is now the size of an avocado. We will (hopefully) find out the sex a week from today during our next set of tests!

Can I even tell you how thrilled I am to be past my first trimester of pregnancy? It’s not that it was particularly unpleasant – I was very lucky not to get any morning sickness – it’s just that it’s such a relief to tell you all the big news! It’s also great that the risk of a miscarriage goes down significantly and things seem to be on autopilot for the time being.
So far, the second trimester has been pretty great. I’ve been a little less tired and I don’t have to eat two lunches a day anymore. Working from home has shown even more benefits though for those sleepy and hungry days! Oh, and I just ordered some maternity clothes from ASOS. I can’t wait to not wear jeans!
