My first trimester was surprisingly and THANKFULLY.. okay! I was one of the lucky ones who didn’t get morning sickness (#BLESSED.) I can’t thank my Mother enough for her genetics. She had three kids and didn’t have morning sickness with any of us!
My biggest and most frustrating symptom has been exhaustion. Any time that I sat still for too long I would start snoozing away. I have never been much of a napper- but since I got pregnant, naps have become a regular things for me. But I am slowly feeling more energized. I can even stay up passed 9pm!
One symptom that just came on for me, is food aversions. Growing up, I was never a fan of eggs but ever since college I started to eat them and enjoy them again. I would eat eggs a few times a week and they were GREAT. The other morning, I decided to scramble up some eggs.. only to be completely repulsed the second I put that first forkful into my mouth. It was such a strange feeling because it happened so suddenly. From now on, I will be steering clear.
All in all, I can happily say- I made it out of my first trimester! I am excited for the months to come and am interested to feel and see the changes in my body.
What I miss:
- Fully caffeinated coffee! Since I found out I was pregnant I decided to switch over to half cafe.. which if you know me and my love for coffee was a big struggle.
- Being able to eat everything and not have to think too much about it. I am constantly googling, “can pregnant women have…” It’s annoying- but as a first time mama, I want to (try to) do everything right(ish)!
What I am most excited for:
- My bump beginning to show more!
- Finding out the gender.
- And being with Justin throughout the rest of this baby adventure!
Keep an eye out for my current pregnancy favorites!
