The Beginning of My Second Trimester


I have officially entered my second trimester of pregnancy! I’m exactly 13 weeks pregnant! My energy is slowing coming back which excites me tremendously—I haven’t taken a nap today, hooray! I’ve been in a sleeping and nauseating state for the last 3 months hence I’m feeling quite ecstatic today knowing that this phase will soon pass.



A Personal Note:

“Thank you for your sweet comments regarding my pregnancy! Sharing my journey with you is honestly the b e s t! For some reason I don’t feel alone—your support and love truly reaches my heart.”

So, here we are, friends. I’m officially in my second trimester which is called the “honeymoon period”. My nausea should subside and hopefully my emotions will even out soon (it’s been a roller-coaster!). And as I have mentioned in my previous post this is going to be the exciting trimester! I will feel to start the baby’s first movements in probably just a couple of weeks which I cannot say enough: To feel the baby kick inside of you is indescribable and by far the most beautiful feeling in the world!

As always, thanks so much for reading & don’t forget to check out the fabulous ladies below! Each of them styled their maxi dress to perfection! This post is part of Sheela Goh’s “Project Sister Act” which advocates “how women across all age groups (I’m talking about teens to 60s, 70s, 80s), are united in showcasing that style knows no age boundary. That style is indeed an expression of one’s personality, no matter if one’s a product of the 70s or 90s. And that the one same motif can be stylish on any and every woman, regardless of the year she was born.”

    Happy 2nd Trimester hon, happy to hear your nausea has subsided- woooohooo! What a cool project to be part of- well done- as I age, I know I am toootally going to be the batty elder on the dancefloor covered in fur and sequins with an eccentric hairdo, so I love style sites like Advanced Style or projects that show that you can still have a youthful stylish spirit even if you are as old as dirt (haha!)

    I really love that you share your emotions with us, dear V., you know how much I admire you and I like that you are so genuine and always trying to empower women! If more people were like you in such a competitive world! I also loved the action, ladies of any age sharing their take on maxi dresses! So excited to know when your baby will kick for the first time 🙂 And naps are good, but I can understand that you are happy that this was the first day you didn’t take one! I hope you have a fabulous weekend, dear V., as fabulous as you and your heart are! Kisses and hugs!
