First Trimester

P.S. It amazes me how sometimes my bump looks so much bigger than others!


My husband and I decided to start trying for a baby after the New Year.  We assumed it would take anywhere from 6 months to a year to get pregnant and we were ready to add to our family and so excited about this parenthood journey.  Little did we realize how quickly God would bless us with our little angel.  I didn't find out until May because I was really not anticipating it happening so quickly for us that we are expecting January 11, 2014.

Considering I didn't even realize I was pregnant until about 6-7 weeks, I'm going under the assumption that I have had a very pleasant pregnancy.  From 7-10 weeks, I battled slight morning sickness from about 2pm-7pm.  In fact, this was a big indicator that I was pregnant and motivated me to take a home test.  Other than that, I never got physically sick.  It was a very brief period of time for a lifetime of happiness and I think it would be worth every moment of illness in the long run.

I will admit I had a few stressful moments after realizing I was pregnant because I had had x-rays done at the dentist, had a few glasses of wine with my grandparents when they visited, and indulged in a few adult beverages in celebrating my friends' father's health.  Now, all of those things were minor and did not involve over-indulgence, therefore they are non-stressors to my doctor.  I was so relieved to hear that when I had my first visit!

I've had some food aversions throughout my first trimester, but they are starting to disappear thankfully.  There was no way I was going to put salad, grilled chicken, or pork anywhere near my mouth.  Smelling it was bad enough!

As I said before, pregnancy has been an absolute dream and I am enjoying every single moment!
