Oh, friends. I’ve been trying to get a post together for you since I announced our big news, but obviously that hasn’t happened. These past 7 weeks I’ve been so sick and exhausted that we’ve been in survival mode around here. I’m 13 weeks (14 on Monday) while writing this and am so glad to be just about out of the 1st trimester. Don’t get me wrong, I am so, so grateful to be pregnant with this sweet baby, but man has it been rough around here lately.
I thought I’d just put together a few thoughts and details from the 1st trimester, and hopefully I’ll be back around these parts more regularly soon!
Due Date: May 21, 2018.
Gender: Unknown now, and we’re not finding out!
Symptoms: Where do I start? Nausea, headaches, dizziness, exhaustion, sore and growing breasts, insanely sensitive sense of smell (and gag reflex), nasty taste in my mouth 24/7, lack of appetite, sore hips, extreme congestion…. And the list goes on. Also, I’m not sure who else experiences this when pregnant, but my mind gets all jittery and can’t concentrate on anything very well. I’m pretty awful to have conversations with these days because I can’t keep my mind on a single train of thought. (Another reason I haven’t been blogging — it’s hard to write a coherent post!)
Thoughts: I love this sweet babe, and I am so excited for him/her to join our family. I have seriously been thinking that this might be our last baby because it’s been so rough, and I’m not sure I have it in me to do it again, but with 3 kids already! Never say never, but…. Well, we’ll see. I’m so ready to feel normal again, and to be able to tackle projects and to just keep my house, well, clean. And not have to sit on the couch all day. And be able to meal plan (and cook and eat) and do all the things I usually do. Hopefully it’s right around the corner!
