The first trimester- a retrospective

We made it!

The first trimester is over and we survived. I say we, because, although I had to survive the physical trials, Luke and Judah have survived an emotionally volatile and extremely sleepy spouse/mother for the past three months. Way to go team!

Where are we now?

Things that are still kind of crummy: 

If I don't eat frequently and with great gusto about 5 times a day I still get faint fast.

Sleeping is becoming uncomfortable.

Soft foods make me want to hurl.

The potential return of the constant- pregnancy UTI and as a result the return of pure cranberry juice binges.

Things that are awesome:

Our midwives.

Vivid dreams.

The return of the boobs (like a bad sequel, but good).

The ability to nap at the drop of a hat.

and, best of all, today I started to feel the definitive little bubblings of a kicker in there!!!




Hot sauce.

Bacon and eggs.

Beer (a craving I haven't fulfilled)

Suffice to say I'm giving birth to a trucker from the Midwest.

Judah's thoughts on baby now?

He points to the ultrasound and shrieks "BABY!"

He still thinks there's a strong possibility Luke is also having a baby.

He kisses the tummy when he's trying to avoid falling asleep at bedtime- the rest of the time he tries to sit on it.

I believe he's getting tired of all the hype around a baby who never shows up...

All in all, I'm glad that part is over! Now we wait 27 more weeks... anyone want to go to Taco Bell?

  1. Congrats on making it to the second trimester. Hopefully you'll start feeling more like yourself.
    You cravings suggesting you're carrying a trucker from the midwest made me laugh out loud. I totally had the beer craving too!
