Second Trimester Checklist: Things to do once you reach your second trimester
If you have reached your second trimester (just like me) then this is what you need to read. Second trimester is when you actually start ‘feeling and looking’ pregnant. And to be honest there are things I’m liking and disliking about being pregnant. But I guess I can rant about it in some other post (good idea though!). Now that I’m at this stage of pregnancy, now that I feel the tiny bump as well, I feel that time is running too fast. There were things I wanted to do in first trimester, but given the nausea and feeling under the weather all the time, I couldn’t really get myself to do all those things. But now that the nausea is gone, not completely though, but I do have that energy level to do things. So coming back to the point, here’s second trimester checklist for us:
So far I’d check the following right off my second trimester checklist:
#1 Maternity Clothes
#2 Exercise/Yoga Routine
#4 Dentist Appointment
Moisturize – Ever since I started on this journey, I have taken to moisturizing every chance I get (mostly in the mornings and at nights). TBH I’m a little worried about getting stretch marks. I already have a lot on my bums and inner thighs and I’d look horrible with more on my stomach or breasts. So taking every precaution possible. But then again, sometimes it is genetic also. Oh well!
Get enough nutrition – This is something that I have just recently started doing ever since I bid farewell to the constant nausea. So I make sure that I take my supplements regularly (Folic Acid and Calcium to begin with) plus fruits.
Finance Management – This is something that my husband and I have discussed a number of times. Yes, at times managing finances could get the better of you but with proper planning and responsibilities, it is something that you can easily deal with. You just have to support each other. At least that’s what I’ve learnt from my experience.
Have fun – Yes to that also! Have fun while you’re at it!
So how many of these things have you started doing already? Is there anything else you’d like to add to your second trimester checklist?
