So, yeah, there it is….we are really excited
I am now 13 weeks and pretty excited to be entering the second trimester.
Here are some of the fun (and not so fun) things that have been going on:
Finding out…Remember all of that wackiness of the happenings at church. Ken and I ended up leaving and had to say goodbye to all of our favorite high school students. The morning that this was to happen, I should have started my cycle. Well, I hadn’t. So just for kicks, I took an at home test and it was positive! So, of course, I took another one and sure enough….2 pink lines!
I was pretty much in shock! I walked down the stairs and sat on the couch next to Ken. I showed him the 2 lines and his reaction was a big smile and excitement. So cute. We called our parents that day…couldn’t so much wait. Errr. haha. And then we had to go say goodbye. It was such a morning of mixed emotions.
The first 13 weeks were a little rough. I think the term “morning sickness” sucks. I LOVED the mornings! It was the rest of the day that stunk. By about noon, all I wanted to do was curl up in a little ball and sleep. I felt sick and tired and this made work oh.so.fun.
Anything raw was disgusting. The sight of raw poultry would put me over the edge and I would literally fall asleep at 7:30 during a show that I REALLY wanted to watch.
Ken is the best husband and switched into dinner making mode and made me eat even if I didn’t want to.
Thanksgiving came and went and we enjoyed having family in town and hanging out. I felt bad because all I wanted to do was lay on the couch and watch football….and eat pickles. I am a whole lot of fun. err.
Workouts: These have taken a hit. More so because I just have not had a lot of time and partly because I would rather by laying on the couch. I have not been running much, but have found the eliptical to be a fine alternative as well as bike riding and swimming. I tried prenatal yoga last night and while I wouldn’t call that a workout, I will say it is quite relaxing.
Food: I am finally making dinner again! Ken was pretty happy to see Pad Thai and Pork chops on the menu this week without being expected to cook them
One weird thing: I did not throw up all of my first trimester…but did today! I blame being stupid and taking my prenatal vitamin in the morning. Oops!!
Hopefully back to the originally scheduled posts with a weekly bump update! To be honest, most people cant tell I am pregnant at this point, but I am sure it will get more exciting soon!
