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… Continue reading My First Trimester
