06 JunOne Trimester Down, Two to Go

So, I will officially hit 13 weeks in a few days marking the end of the first trimester and the beginning of the second one. I’ve been told things get much better, but so far I have not been seeing it.

Here are some great things I experienced during my first 3 months: 

1)      Fatigue: I have never been so tired and it’s all the time. I can lie on the couch and be out in less than 2 minutes, which is rare for me. There are some days when I need more than 1 nap.

 2)      Morning Sickness: Now, I was not throwing up every day but feeling sick to your stomach and nausea is no walk in the park.

 3)      Non-stop Hunger, yet nothing sounds good at all.

 4)      Aversion to all meats and eggs…which have always been a staple in my diet.

5)      Constant urination: it seems I always have to go especially in the middle of the night and wee hours of the morning.

6)      Waking up at 4 or 5am starving and needing some food.

7)      TMI alert!!! Constantly having to poo, and most of the time it comes on all the sudden and I have to go right then.

Those are the main things going on in my body for the last few months and I’m waiting for those symptoms to stop, of course who knows what is in store for the next 6 months.

I have decided this will probably be my only baby. I am too old for all this body crap and I don’t have the patience to wait for a baby. 6 more months? Are you serious? I just want to be done being pregnant and have a scary baby. Simply meaning having a baby scares me, but we will do okay, I have a good man who will help me out.

I will try to blog more about my experiences of being pregnant since this all new to me and it’s kind of interesting. For now, I must nap.

    If you are blessed with the morning sickness genes that I was blessed with, which is very likely, you still have another three months of upchucking and feeling nauseated. Once you hold that little guy/gal and get a smile, you may change your mind about another one. They are tricky like that. Plus…they are cute to watch when interacting..not so much when annoying each other on purpose. Today mine were taking turns being the other one’s pet lizard (party toy blowy thing that looks like a lizard’s tongue I guess). Oh, and going on a cruise reversed the morning sickness for a few days 🙂
