Baby #3: My First 12 Weeks of This Pregnancy

October 20, 2016

It was late August, on a Saturday and I was sprawled out on the couch just waking up from yet another nap, when I thought to myself “my gosh why am I so exhausted?!” At first I thought It was because Liam had just started school and we were waking up earlier. But then it clicked. I must be pregnant!

Before I even took any pregnancy test I was already familiar with the symptoms I was having. The one that gave it away was the extreme fatigue. I felt exactly the same with my previous 2 pregnancies in the initial weeks. My fatigue made me realize that I was actually already 5 days late!

My symptoms these past 12 weeks have been:

Fatigue

Excessive peeing

Bigger, heavier, sore boobs

Bloating

Weird Dreams

Some constipation (TMI I know, But I’m keeping it real)!

Occasional light-headedness

Trouble sleeping

Shortness of breath

Some food aversions + a couple of cravings

All sound great, huh? Well honestly, the first trimester is no picnic but I much rather have these symptoms than having nausea & vomiting. That’s never happened to me with any of my pregnancies. I consider myself lucky! I know within the next couple of weeks, when I’m in my 2nd trimester, I will have a lot more energy and enjoying all that pregnancy “glow” and a bigger baby bump!

I have to go pee…again (haha), talk to you soon!

– Stay tuned for the gender reveal coming up in the next couple of weeks!!♥
