Now for more realness.
I didn't realize just how tired you are during your first trimester. OH. M. GEE. I've been lucky with having light bouts of morning sickness, my sister was sick daily. I do feel nauseous often but realized eating little bits and keeping my stomach "coated" helps. Due to this, I've already gained 5+ lbs because of this new found need to constantly eat. Oh well! Plus did I mention the insane bloating? BYE JEANS! Next up is the sleepiness, you basically find out there's nothing you can do but embrace it and sleep and relax more. I'm still trying with that one.
At the end of the day, my body is doing something extraordinary. I am growing a human! Of course I'm sleepy, nauseous, lethargic, hungry, and all the other amazing 1st trimester symptoms. I'm taking the ole' "if you can't beat em, join em" mentality and embracing it.
Coulter is ECSTATIC, he talked me into having a baby FAR sooner than my original timeline. I suppose it's not the norm for the guy to be convincing the girl to hurry up and have kids, but we live in a very feminist age so I loved it. He plays cool in this video, but he is GENUINELY far more excited than I am, with zero hesitations. It's adorable and inspiring and keeps me in amazing spirits... even when I'm throwing up or waking up at 1am, 3am, and 5am to pee.
We cannot wait to meet our little girl/boy! ... and I am so excited to share this journey with any of you who want to come along for the ride. Be sure to keep checking back on the blog for more updates throughout my pregnancy and more behind the scenes into my journey to motherhood.
