OH MY! Where has the time gone? As we speak I am currently already half way through my pregnancy which is crazy because a lot has happened. So here are a few facts about how my first trimester went! Also, most people already know but we found out the gender and we’re super excited- next post coming soon!
When did I find out: I was about 4 weeks pregnant.
Morning Sickness: I did experience nausea -I would say from about 8 weeks to 12 weeks. Nothing extremely bad but still made it difficult to eat certain foods.
Bloating: A million times, yes. I had it bad.
Food Cravings/Aversions: Aversions, yes. Certain foods that I use to love I couldn’t really eat during this time which was hard because I never knew what to make. I could NOT see or eat meat or chicken- ugh. BUT all I wanted to eat were carbs- all day everyday!
Weight Gain: Up until 12 weeks I have gained 4 pounds from my starting weight.
Workouts: Honestly, I went to the gym once and have not had the energy to do anything. Sometimes I will do a yoga video but nothing intense.
Sleep: My sleep has not been too bad- although I am a stomach sleeper, I definitely had to get use to sleeping on my side which wasn’t the greatest. Also, peeing 1000x throughout the night.
Baby Movements: No, still too early.
Fatigue: YES! YES! This was probably my most obvious indicator for me that I was pregnant, I slept SO much throughout the first month. I just couldn’t keep my eyes open, pretty sure I napped everyday for the first month.
Gender Prediction: Both Brandon and I have said boy from the very beginning.
Baby Size: (4 weeks- 12 weeks) Grew from the size of a poppy seed to the size of a lime.
I cannot wait to continue to share this journey with everyone, it’s seriously crazy what your body is capable of. Stay tuned for another update soon and our gender reveal!
