Hi Babes! So I’m back with a first-trimester update. This is going to be my 6-8 week pregnancy update. I’m currently 8 weeks and 5 days today! The exhaustion is REAL girl, I mean OMG I can literally fall asleep anywhere and any way, lol. I feel like my extreme exhaustion started around week 6 for sure. I was very tired all the time and I still am. It’s really hard to get motivated to do anything other than sleep. When I was 6 and 7 weeks I hardly had an appetite at all but once I hit the 8-week mark my appetite increased dramatically, lol. But it’s still hard to eat sometimes because I still have some nausea throughout the day at random times so that’s also a struggle for me. Other than when I’m working with my clients during the week which is hard in itself since I am on my feet for hours daily, I haven’t been as active as I should be. Nor have I been exercising. I’m just so tired all. the. time. It’s really the worst part of the first trimester with how tired you are through it.
As far as cravings, I’m eating fruit like crazy and starting to crave more spicy foods this time around. I’m constantly thirsty and now my potty breaks are slowly starting to increase. My stomach has been weird the past week or so and now my coffee intake is less because of that too. I’ve also started to not like things that are too sweet like when they put too much sugar or syrup in my coffee or something I can’t even finish it. I’m not sure my exact weight but my prepregnancy weight was 140 and I believe I’ve gained about 4 pounds since I got pregnant, based on an at home scale, I checked my weight on over the weekend.
As far as mentally, I’m still in the grey area of not knowing what’s going on in there, lol. I honestly can’t wait to get to the point where I can at least feel little fluters so I know my little nugget is ok. I know once you reach 8 weeks and then 12 weeks you’re pretty much out of the miscarriage waters but I just can’t wait until our next ultrasound so I can see our little bean bouncing around and thriving. Physically my breasts are still very sore and have gotten a little bigger and my stomach definitely has a pooch now, lol. I can already tell that I’m going to be my biggest with this pregnancy but that always happens when you’ve had more than one, lol. My hormones are all over the place and I’m at the point where everything can either turn me on or make me want to commit murder and I’ve also started crying at commercials on occasion so that’s great, lol.
Well, I think that’s it for now in the updates department. I will start doing more and better bump pics when I’m showing a bit more because right now it just looks like I’m expecting taco babies any minute, haha. I hope you babes had an amazing Easter Weekend. Ours was pretty relaxing and we just lounged around the whole day after eating a big breakfast. Also, anyone else expecting? Where are my due date buddies? I haven’t started taking bets yet but I feel like this one is going to come before its November 27th due date but we shall see. Leave your due date in the comments below so we can support and check in on each other.
Always Remember You’re Beautiful!
