Eat Drink & Be Mary: First Trimester Pregnancy Recap


First Trimester Pregnancy Recap

Y'all I still can't believe that the beans have been spilled.  I've been biting my tongue for so long now it's feels weird to finally be able to talk about it so openly with y'all.  

So, since I've been keeping it a secret I thought I'd catch y'all up with a brief little recap of the past couple of weeks.  And of course, to have it all here to look back on one day.

Also, can we talk about how weird pregnancy weeks are?  Some things I read say that week 12 is the end of the 1st trimester and some say week 13.  And then how some months are longer than others?  Idk, it's all so confusing.  

So back to all things first trimester...

| Big Events |

Positive Pregnancy Test: July 16 (4 weeks)
First Doctors Apt./Sonogram: August 9 (7 weeks 3 days)
Told our parents: August 11 & 12
Told the great-grandparents-to-be: August 26 & 27
Second Doctors Apt./hearing the heartbeat again: September 12 (12 weeks 2 days)
I told my students yesterday and they were the cutest.  Some of my boys literally couldn't believe it, and a lot of girls were confused because I don't look pregnant yet.  Pretty much all of them wanted to know right away if Baby T is a boy or girl.  One little dude was so excited he gave me a hug and declared he was gonna be an uncle! haha.  And an entire class wants to have a baby shower, and have already started guessing if its a boy or girl.  Ah..six graders, gotta love 'em.
fun fact: the night before I took the pregnancy test I had the most realistic dream that I took the test and it was positive.  When then really psyched me out when I woke up, but obviously it was still positive in real life too. ;)

| Cravings |

Nothing makes me want to throw up necessarily.  But up until about 8 or 9 weeks, nothing sounded good either.  Except carbs.   Carbs are a totally different story.  I'm all about some carbs.

The only real cravings I've had are for french fries dipped in ketchup.

| How I'm Feeling | 

Before we even "knew" I was pregnant, I felt like I knew because I had the worst heartburn and sore tatas like I've never had before.  Other symptoms I've had the past couple months are vivid dreams and occasional nausea, which increases if I get really hungry, when I lay down at night, or when I brush my teeth.  
And don't even get me started on the exhaustion.  I'm napping everyday after work (and I'm a no nap type of girl) and in bed by 10pm.  And I'm still exhausted by 10 or 11am everyday.  But I hear getting my energy back is on the horizon.  
Oh and last thing.  The amount of times I pee in a day is insane.  And night time is even worse.  I'm up 2 or 3 times at night, but again I've heard and am HOPING that'll also go away in the second trimester.  

Thomas and I are both still just so so excited that have a little one on the way.  We've talked about having a family for years (even before we were married), and now all our dreams are coming true.  

Stay tuned each week for updates, and other non-baby related stuff too.  Now that I'm finally feeling more like myself I plan on hoping right back on the blogging wagon.  

Don't forget I'm working on a post to answer all the questions you have about the pregnancy so far, so put your questions in the comments or hit me up on Instagram.
