Pregnancy Post: Second Trimester (August-November)
I had been pretty quiet about my pregnancy outside of a select group of friends and family until 19-20 weeks and yay, a month without bleeding and a gradual reintroduction of exercise. I wrestled with this because when you have a complicated pregnancy you both want to keep it close because there is a lot of scary uncertainty you don’t always want to talk about, but at the same time you want to and should be able to celebrate what you are experiencing in the moment. So many families lose a baby in silence. My hemorrhage luckily completely resolved and my baby’s growth is perfectly on target…actually some months I measured ahead! I have been able to start riding again knowing that my hemmorhage has completely resolved and that my placental blood flow is spot on and is giving the baby what it needs. I have to say it feels so nice to be outside moving again at any pace.
