The dear, loyal readers of the world might remember my grim tales about the dreaded First Trimester. For those same readers who have been here from the beginning, you might be shocked to realize that the beloved Second Trimester has almost come to a close. As I embark upon week 26, I shall take a moment to remember the greatness of the second trimester and hope some of its perks stick around for the rest of my trek. Grab the Puffs Plus, people, it's been a great three months. I hate to see it go.

As you might imagine, this whole journey has been quite the roller coaster ride with ups and downs that have taken my breath away. While this trimester has mostly been filled with ups, there have been a few not-so-awesome bits.
First up, weight gain. Oh yeah...it's a vital part of growing a human, but whoa. Not the most fun.

Maybe you think there's nothing worse than weight gain. That's fine. I'll let you think that...for now. But one day...one day, friends, you might have a little run-in with the WORST part about pregnancy--REGISTERING FOR BABY ITEMS. Oh. dear. Lord. in. Heaven.
Luckily, I've been able to keep the preggo meltdowns to a minimum the past few months, but a monster meltdown ensued when I tried to register. I felt absolutely helpless and completely lost. I mean, I loved registering for wedding stuff. "Oh, I want that! Oh, this would be nice! Yay! Yay! Yay!" Yeah...there was none of that with the baby registry. Instead, I sat on the couch with my trusty Mac and said, "Wait a minute, I don't have a single clue about what I need for raising a baby." Scary.

Ok, that's it! Those are the only bad things about the second trimester. Now to the amazingly awesome parts of being preggo. Wait for it....Maternity clothes. Oh, I see you over there. You're turning your nose up like you're better than those huge, stretchy panels. I thought the same thing. However, when my belly really began to...ahem..."blossom", those stretchy panels were the best thing to ever happen to me! See how hip these girls look??

I know I said I would only upload one bump pic, but alas, I'll give you ONE more. And this is seriously the last. So, don't tell anyone. Fbook just can't handle this belly. Forgive the construction (and the green cat toy) in the background. There's a major project going on, ya know.
Well, ready or not, I'm on the cusp of the third trimester. Leggo!
