Happy hump day loves, or should I say bump day! I am excited to be sharing my very first bump update with you all! I am going to get into all about my first trimester, but honestly I was a bit lucky and it wasn’t all that eventful! When I first found out around 4 weeks my very first and only symptom was sore breasts and boy did they keep getting soarer and soarer as the weeks went on! I couldn’t stand to wear bras! Then came the fatigue! Ugh after going to the store made me feel like I needed a nap! Then around week 6 a bit of nausea started to kick in. Mine kind of came in waves but it was pretty mild. I never got to the point where I felt like I was going to vomit, thank goodness! I more had the feeling that everything, especially smells, made me want to gag! Going to the grocery store was awful smelling the mix of food. I would literally start gagging walking down the aisles. So cute right?! Along with that fabulous gagging feeling came major food aversions. For about 2 weeks the only things I could eat were carbs! That is all I wanted. Don’t bring anything else near me! I am lucky I only had 2 really bad weeks of feeling like that and as I hit around 9 weeks each week increasingly became better and I felt more like myself. Now that I hit my second trimester I have to remind myself that I am pregnant because I feel completely normal! They say your second trimester is a breeze and I am lucky mine has been so far, knock on wood! I will update you though once I get half way through the second trimester!
How am I feeling?
Pretty darn good! Baby boy has been very nice to me so far, lets hope he continues to be so sweet in the later weeks and after birth! ;p Although I feel good I do still feel tired a lot. If I have an eventful day I am pretty drained the following day and sometimes just crave laying down in my bed for a quick rest or nap! Also I have been a little moodier than usual, which usually I am a pretty calm person but lately things get me super ticked and I can’t hold back haha!
What am I craving?
Still all the carbs! For those two weeks that I couldn’t each much I lived off of everything bagels and macaroni and cheese! Now I have gotten a little more fancy and crave cheese ravioli, specifically cheese mushroom ravioli!
For those bad 2 weeks about 90% of food was an aversion to me haha, but the one thing that I literally couldn’t stand let alone say the word was avocados. I’m still slightly gagging thinking about it haha Which is odd because I use to love them! Griffin had to nickname them a-holes because the word just made me want to vomit haha! Also I wouldn’t call it an aversion, but I have weirdly not been in the mood for sweets. I usually love my sweets! Griffin on the other hand is another story, he has been sweets crazy and basically asks me if we can stop to get a donut every day! haha! I guess it’s true that they say men can have sympathy symptoms!
What am I wearing?
Anything flowy. I officially cannot button any of my high waisted jeans anymore so I have been opting for dresses and lets be honest PJs all day every day when I’m at home. Abercrombie was having a major sale so I ended up buying some comfy low waisted boyfriend jeans and a super stretchy pair of skinnys in a bigger size so they will grow with me until I cave and get maternity jeans!
How’s Baby J?
Thankfully he is super healthy so far! We had our 12 week ultrasound and he was kicking and moving all over. That ultrasound does the nuchal translucency test and measures behind the neck and can help determine chromosomal abnormality risk factors and that all came back perfect, along with the blood work. Thank goodness! At my next appointment at the end of the month they draw my blood to check for spina bifida so I am praying everything continues to come back perfect! All I want is a healthy baby boy!
How cute is his little profile!? Those lips!!! <333
