All in all I found the second trimester to be a breeze. I still had no sickness and very little nausea. The tiredness that I couldn’t shake was gone by around 18 weeks and most days I felt like a normal person.

The new issues cropping up were, as before, largely emotional. The realisation that life would never be the same gets more real everyday.

I would say I started feeling movements every evening when relaxing around 19 weeks but these quickly became big movements all day by about 23 weeks.

The poor baby was now being tortured by us poking it to see if we could conjur up movements. #pushyparents

A really exciting part of my second trimester was starting to make more purchases. I’m shortly going to post about our experiences of picking out a pram, car seat and other bits and bobs.
