Symptoms Tapering Off

pregnancy symptoms


second trimester



On one hand, I'm very excited that the 24/7 nausea and the fatigue and the constipation have tapered off or pretty much vanished.  I definitely enjoy getting up just after my husband goes off to work at 8 am instead of sleeping in bed till 11!  It's nice not to feel so utterly exhausted in the morning.

But, on the other hand, despite the second trimester being known for its lull in symptoms, I'm scared to death this lull is because my hormones are gone because I've lost the baby ... like last time.  At 12 weeks with my first pregnancy, I had been feeling much like I do now at 15 weeks in this pregnancy.  However, that pregnancy did not have the same severity of symptoms that this one did.

So I just try to reassure myself that everything is okay in there and my little darling is growing strong!

Grow, Baby Ohz!
