First Trimester - Pregnancy Update #1!



I was unsure on what I wanted to do as far as pregnancy blog posts go, but I decided to do one real quick on my 1st trimester now that I am a couple weeks into the 2nd trimester!

 

First of all, we are SO ecstatic we are expecting our first little baby and we are so grateful for your love and all the sweet comments everyone left us when we announced it!


 First trimester was touch and go (sometimes still is!), I could not eat anything. Nothing appealed to me! I would have to force down food – especially meat…it really freaked me out! I was so lucky not to have morning sickness but I did get a stomach virus around week 7 which was a little scary.
 

That was the worst part, but the best part? Um…hello! Finding out we are having our first baby! I almost could not believe my eyes when I saw the word “Pregnant” on my Clearblue test. In fact, I took 3 more…just to make sure. J Come on mama’s, tell me you haven’t done this!


HOW FAR ALONG ARE YOU?

16 weeks!

WHEN ARE YOU DUE:

July!

ARE YOU FINDING OUT THE GENDER?

Yes, and we cannot wait! Some days I think we’re having a girl, some days I think we’re having a boy.

DO YOU HAVE NAMES PICKED OUT?

We have a list! Once we find out if the little one is a girl or boy, we will be able to narrow it down! I don’t think we are going to tell anyone until the day he or she comes…it will be a surprise for everyone :-D

BEST PREGNANCY PURCHASE SO FAR?

I got a Rebecca Minkoff diaper bag that I am sort of obsessed with! It is so cute…(stay tuned on my Instagram, I will be posting about it soon.) I also got a Bump Nest pregnancy pillow…best investment ever! Look it up & if you are pregnant (even in your first trimester!) it really helps. For me, I got achey early on and it helped me find a comfy spot to sleep. As my belly gets big, I think it will be even more useful.

DO YOU HAVE ANY CRAVINGS?

Not yet! I have some requests here and there but nothing in particular. Except pineapple cream cheese...that's been my go-to. :-)

WHAT BOOKS HAVE YOU READ?

What to Expect When You’re Expecting is a pregnancy must. It is really informative and you can find a lot of info in it…I will say though that it is a little textbook like and I find that others are more mommy-to-be friendly. Mayo Clinic has a really good pregnancy book, my girlfriend got it for me and it is much more reader friendly! There are a bunch of cute ones that I’ve gotten and am working through J

Hope everyone had a cozy weekend! Me, Kyle, Peanut and Cole played around in the snow (Cole LOVES the snow) and got in a lot of lounge time. We got about 20 inches of snow here! Everyone stay warm!!

  6. That is the most exciting for a woman when she comes to know that she is pregnant and here comes the part of husband that to care more than before to complete the time and get the happiness of the world but for this he will have to visit Chiropractor North Ryde as well to provide her relief from the pains she is going to have for the full pregnancy.
