Back in my first trimester of pregnancy, I stumbled across a couple memes one night that made me laugh because they so perfectly captured how I was feeling…which was tired, all the time, and somehow constantly queasy but also constantly hungry/thirsty.
Basically, I was preggers and my body wouldn’t let me forget it.
The best part about being in my second trimester is that I pretty much feel like a normal person again. Frequent pee-breaks aside, I have tons of energy, my queasiness is gone, and I can eat food everyday like everyone else (i.e., 3 regular meals and a snack or two vs. 15 very small meals/snacks).
- 3 cups pomegranate juice
- 1 cup cranberry juice
- 1 to 2 cups lemonade, to taste (I made my own lemonade with 1 cup simple syrup, 1 cup lemon juice, 4 cups water)
- Berries and chopped fruit to soak in the liquid (I used blackberries, raspberries, lemons, and oranges)
