the one about the first trimester

When I first started blogging, Jessica Garvin was the first blog I read regularly. Her pregnancy updates with Harper were my favorite day of the week, and I dreamed about the day I’d get to do the same. AND THAT TIME IS HERE! I hope you guys enjoy reading them as much as I do, and that mine are as interesting as hers! If you don’t, don’t worry I’m not gonna do them every week 🙂 Here’s all about the first trimester. . .

How far along? 12 weeks
Maternity clothes? I bought some shorts and a dress on sale. I don’t really need them yet, but they are the best things I’ve ever worn so I wear them a lot. All my old clothes still fit, although not the same – and belts with my jeans are the worst idea EVER.
Sleep: getting better. I’m incredibly tired all the time, but for the first few weeks sleep was hard to come by.
Best moment: seeing the baby move at our first ultrasound

Miss Anything? sushi specifically spicy tuna. I’m not a big drinker, but I would kill for a Moscow mule right now.
Movement: the Dr. says he/she moves a lot, but I’m not feeling it yet.
Food cravings: croissantwhiches from burger king, spaghetti, now n laters but specifically the kind from the dollar tree
Anything making you queasy or sick: the smell of raw ground beef
Gender: we find out this week!

Symptoms: dry skin, nauseous, headaches, super tired, superhuman smelling, tender breasts . . . all of them
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or Moody most of the time: happy most of the time! much more chill than usual actually. but every now and then I feel the need to cry . . . for no reason.
Looking forward to: telling everyone the gender!

    Oh goodness I miss sushi too! I’ve still been eating it if it’s fully cooked and doesn’t contain fish that are high in mercury. But I miss the raw stuff big time! The first trimester wasn’t too bad for me. I wasn’t sick much but I was exhausted and had a ton of headaches. I’m enjoying the second trimester so much more, though. I still have days where I’m tired or not feeling well, but for the most part my energy has been up. And it’s SO COOL once you start feeling the baby move 🙂
