pregnancy update: 1st trimester
26 weeks pregnant now! I wanted to share a little about this journey. My husband and I are over the moon about Baby Yellowlee's arrival in December. He's been wanting a baby for a solid 4-5 years now. I was the one kind of like 'omg, way too young to be a mom!'. And then something changed. I just got crazy baby fever. So here I am!
Here's how I found out I was pregnant. I was shopping with my girlfriends, and my boobs just started aching. Like aching. I was thinking oh no, it's my period. But then I felt them and it was just a little more painful than usual. So then I became hopeful that maybe I was pregnant. Still I wanted to wait until the first day my period was due. So that morning, I peed on a stick and there it was!
My first real symptom was my sore boobs. Pretty much within the next week, I was falling asleep at any time, all the time. On the couch, on the subway, at work - literally anywhere. I'm not a napper, so often times I'd wake up to my husband just staring at me in disbelief that I'd passed out within 30 seconds of being in conversation with him.
So those two things was really as bad as it got for me. I never experienced nausea or vomiting. I'm so thankful for that. I know that's not everyone's experience. I was able to still workout (light weight lifting and going easy in spin class). I kept a balanced diet of healthy food and the occasional junk meal. I gained three pounds in the first trimester. I'm not too concerned about weight, but I really don't want to be left with 50 pounds to lose after baby. At the end of the day, a healthy pregnancy and baby is definitely the number one priority though! I'd love to hear about your experiences!
