Latest cravings: Sweets! In the past two weeks all I have wanted after dinner is something sweet, but not just a piece of fruit (like I would have had if I wasn’t pregnant!). I’ve been craving soft chunky cookies, bread pudding, decadent desserts, pie and peach cobbler (which I finally made this morning–I’ll share more about it tomorrow!). Unfortunately, I haven’t had all of these delicious things in my house, so I’ve been mainly dreaming about them. I’m hoping to make a batch of chocolate chip cookies later this week to curb this craving! In addition, I’m still craving salty foods, roasted potatoes and bacon!
Eating: Things are good. I still have to snack every few hours, but luckily no queasiness.
Feelings: Energy is much better! I’m still tired here and there, but it’s not constant like it was in the first trimester. Also, I’m definitely more emotional these days, as my husband likes to tell me! I can’t help it, it’s the hormones!
Skin: After trying some new products, the acne on my chin has finally started to get better. I still get a few blemishes here and there, but they seem to go away a lot sooner! Now, I just have to figure out how to get rid of all of the dark brown/red spots left from all of the blemishes I had!
Weight: I have gained a total of 12 pounds so far. I can’t remember how much I weighed with Keenan at this point, but I think it was about the same. I have another prenatal appointment next week, so I’m curious to see how much more I have gained.
Workouts: I’m still doing WODs in my backyard (while our garage gym is still not finished!) four times a week with a couple Just Dance 4 sessions with Keenan. I feel good!
Dreams: I have been having some CRAZY dreams! Prior to being pregnant, I never really remembered my dreams, but these are all so vivid that I remember every last detail like they actually happened. It is so weird! I don’t remember having any dreams when I was pregnant with Keenan.
Are you a dreamer? If so, do you remember them when you wake up in the morning?
If you have been pregnant (or are currently), what was/is your weirdest craving?
