@mtnhoney: thanks for starting this! Can’t believe we are on part 3 already!
How’s the first trimester going so far: Morning sickness? Weird cravings? Unpleasant symptoms? Morning sickness kicked in hard core yesterday, and it is even worse today. My mom said hers lasted until 24 weeks, so I am a little terrified of it being that long. I literally feel like I can’t do anything today. I am getting Zofran later, but I would like to try and use it only when I have things to do, and not when I can just lie around all day. Otherwise my boobs hurt like crazy, and I can smell everything and then some. Oh, and I think I am going to have to ban myself from sad movies
Who have you told? If you’re keeping quiet, do you have any special announcement plans? His parents, my mom, our siblings, his best friend, my best friend, and 2 other people found out by accident. We will probably wait until 2nd trimester to tell “everyone,” and probably do it via a cheesy facebook announcement I really want to do: “J and A, sitting in a tree. K-I-S-S-I-N-G. First comes love, then comes marriage. Then comes….. and put a little baby carriage there. Or a photo with our dog and the 2 of us and the plus signs = 4.
How are you staying healthy? I laughed and told my health-nut of a husband that this kid is definitely his, because it doesn’t like unhealthy food already. Fried/ greasy foods make me even sicker! I was trying to eat all healthy, but so far today I can’t even think about eating anything other than crackers and gingerale. I am not going to go too crazy with the exercising, the GF’s Guide book said to use pregnancy as an excuse to not do hardcore exercise. I’ll take it Just walks with my little Cavalier! Even yesterday carrying stuff up and down the stairs a few times, I felt a little crampy and it scared me. So I’m breaking up with the weights until post-pregnancy and just going to take it easy.
Are you planning to find out if you’re having a boy or girl or staying team green? Definitely finding out. I have always told myself I would, and I don’t have enough will power not to not find out We want to do a gender reveal party bc I think they are adorbs
What are your highest hopes for this pregnancy and your little one? For the pregnancy–I definitely pray constantly that everything will go great and baby will be normal and healthy. That’s really all I can ask for. I wouldn’t be disappointed if the nausea went away sooner rather than later, but if it’s all part of making a healthy baby, I am willing to deal with it. For the LO-I just hope they are healthy and happy as a baby/child. I am a little worried about being so busy with my medical training and feeling like I don’t spend enough time with LO, but I am absolutely blessed that my DH is going to be an amazing dad and a great help. He used to babysit when he was younger and is almost more baby crazy than me
