The First Trimester

Now that I am a few weeks into my second trimester I thought I would reflect back and share a few things from those first weeks.

This time around we were trying to get pregnant and were very very excited when we saw the + sign on the pregnancy test. A little different than the last time (when were totally completely shocked and surprised). It was a very special feeling wanting to see the positive result and then seeing it pop up!

The first trimester flew by, for the most part. I did have a lot of nausea which I didn't have with Molly so that kind of threw me. On and off all day long for about 6 weeks. Not fun. I was also extremely tired and while chasing around a 2.5 year old I didn't find much time for extra rest.

I did notice that I started to get a little bump, that is a very nice way of putting it, much earlier than I did before. I knew that was probably coming but I wasn't quite prepared for the clothes fitting tighter so early on. Maternity clothes will definitely be happening much sooner, like now.

Mostly the first trimester was just filled with excitement and "I can't believe it" feelings. We are very excited to add to our family and I am enjoying my second go round with pregnancy.

Bumpdates and more to come!
