Happy Thursday! This week flew by and I cannot believe we are almost to the weekend! I am excited to share with you all my first trimester bump date! Let me just start by saying this pregnancy has been completely 180, opposite than Sawyer’s! Sawyer’s pregnancy was a unicorn pregnancy and besides some food aversions I felt amazing up until I delivered! Well Baby J #2 is already being a stinker haha! Around about 5 weeks I got hit with some pretty bad nausea that was on and off all day every day. I was lucky that I never actually threw up though (yet I was close a few times)! Also I got hit with extreme exhaustion! I don’t think I have ever been more tired in my life. Which having a toddler and being extremely tired all the time was most definitely a struggle! I keep wishing my pregnancies could have been the other way around haha! Like why couldn’t my tough pregnancy be when I was childless?!!! Some things that have helped with my nausea was just never letting my stomach go empty. If I got hungry the nausea got intense.
This time around I didn’t really get too many aversions, except for coffee. The smell of coffee in the morning definitely wanted to make me gag, but I have been drinking it again a little here and there. Also no cravings really. Just if something sounds good I need to have it haha but nothing super specific. Another horrible symptom have been headaches! I was getting one almost every 3-4 days mainly at night but luckily they have subsided but not completely. I usually get headaches around that time of the month so when I was pregnant with Sawyer I had 0 headaches and it was amazing! I was hoping it would be the same, but of course I didn’t get that lucky yet again.
As for some a good symptoms, my skin has been amazing! I broke out so bad with Sawyer so it has been nice to actually have one good thing come from this pregnancy so far (besides the baby being healthy!)! I honestly don’t think I have gotten a pimple since I found out I was pregnant, which is crazy for my acne prone skin!
How I am feeling now at 16 weeks (today!)? The nausea is just now FINALLY starting to subside! I still will get some waves here and there but not too bad. I also am starting to get a little energy back, but definitely still tired! I am just waiting for that second trimester energy everyone keeps talking about haha! I am just hoping the hard part is now behind me and everything will be a lot smoother from here on out! I always joked after Sawyer’s pregnancy I don’t think I’ll get that lucky twice to have such an easy pregnancy and I guess I was right haha! Although this one has been rough on me I wouldn’t change it for the world since I know my body is doing amazing things in creating our perfect little baby that we are so excited to meet come October! Mama’s of multiple babies, were your pregnancies different or similar?! I would love to know! I hope you all have a great weekend! <3
