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:
Bigger, heavier, sore boobs
Some constipation (TMI I know, But I’m keeping it real)!
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!!♥
