I know I haven’t kept this updated like I should have, but it’s summer and all. Or technically, still feels like summer (93 friggin degrees out!)

I have some big news that I’ve already shared with the Facebook world and our family. We’re expecting a baby around April 16th!! I didn’t think this day would come but it has and now that it has, I am freaking out and not feeling so thrilled about it. Yes, I am happy that god has blessed us with a child. But, now that my hormones are going a mile a minute, I am not super excited like I should be. Maybe once I am further along I’ll be happy? I mean after all, this is a life changing event here.

I haven’t exactly had the best time these past 4 weeks after finding out. There are days where the nausea is so bad that I don’t even want to move from the couch. I’d literally rather throw up and get it over with than feel like I’m hungover all day.

My nipples are starting to change and make me cringe at the slightest touch, my breasts hurt, the constipation is unlike any other constipation I have ever experienced. I am talking shit so painful, you just want to let it sit in your anal cavity than try to push it out. Don’t believe the hype or the happy pregnant people you see on TV if you’re a first time mom, it LOOKS and FEELS nothing like that in my experience! I hear it gets better after the first trimester, so here’s to hoping.

A little under 4 more weeks to go, then onto 2nd trimester.

    Congratulations. I was one of those ultra happy pregnant people, but that was probably because I miscarried my first two babies, so I was happy just to be pregnant. The second trimester is the easiest, and the third is just fine until the last month or so.

    Massive congratulations! Still waiting for that moment in my own life. I wish you all the best with yours (and start drinking senna tea and eating Fiber One…nothing can stay inside you with that combo.)

    Congratulations! I’m so sorry it’s not currently the lovely pregnancy you thought you would experience. This is one of my main fears! I’ve always wanted kids and I’m scared I’ll jinx myself and have an awful pregnancy!

      Haha I’m sorry. I’ve learned that taking fiber and prune juice and eating/drinking anything with ginger is going to be my friend, so hopefully all should be well. I don’t have it as bad as some and for that I am grateful!

    I was miserable when I was pregnant. From day one I was sick, achy, tired, peeing and vomiting always….but now when I read posts like this I actually MISS it? Strange but true. So I know this sounds insane, but enjoy it LOL.

      Oh I’m sure I’ll have the same feelings when I’m no longer pregnant. Thanks for stopping by.

    Congratulations! It will get better! I have 4 kids, terrible first trimester with all of them. Your body is going through a lot of changes to grow a baby but you will get through it. And you are going to be amazed when you can feel the baby move. It is truly amazing!

    Congrats on the baby!!! I hope that these symptoms fade! My cousin was very anxious the majority of her pregnancy, and now that her daughter is here, she is totally relaxed and happy. I wish you peace in your pregnancy!
