First Trimester

The first trimester flew by so quickly!

Symptoms: extreme drowsiness, mild cramping and nausea. The most significant symptom was feeling as if I was going to pass out anytime I stood for more than a few minutes.  This began a few days before knowing I was pregnant.  I was standing in the shower and suddenly felt light headed and blacked out.  I had never felt that way before, I couldn't hear or see as I was sitting on the shower floor with cold water running over me.  Come to find out, this was a "normal" symptom and would be quite frequent.  At this point, I had only experienced morning sickness twice, woo hoo!

I couldn't get by without: tums, water, cheez-its or saltines. 

Cravings: I only craved things I already loved.  Flamin' Hot Cheetos being my favorite at this point!

Weight gained: 10lbs

Best moments: Getting to hear their heartbeats and see them was utterly amazing!

Stay tuned for more on my second trimester!


12 weeks!
