I haven't been on here in a while, except to check email. Lots has changed!
I will be 16 week pregnant tomorrow!! First baby! My husband and I are so excited!
We got married October 27, 2012 and were pregnant 4 months later! Woo-hoo! I was a little worried it would take a while because I am 32 and have been on the pill since the age of 16...but both sides of my family are very fertile and I guess I am following in that area!
I found out on March 11 that I was pregnant. It was one of the happiest days! I couldn't hardly focus when I got to work. I took a test at home that morning.
So far I have basically been "built for pregnancy" as my husband likes to joke. I have never gotten sick one time. From week 6-12 I was feeling queasy all day and just blah. Smells got to me the worst. I had to switch to unscented laundry detergent and it was a good excuse for my husband to clean the house for me those weeks. I didn't feel like cooking or eating, nothing tasted good...but that is as bad as it's been! Once week 13 hit, I was pretty much back to feeling as normal as one can feel while growing a human inside of them!
I have only gained about 6-7 pounds so far, so I am happy with that. I have not worked out at ALL since finding out I was pregnant. I was working out pretty consistently before that. I should have known something was up when the weekend before I officially found out I was pregnant, I had to take a quick pee break during one of my aerobics classes at the gym...that was a FIRST. 2 days later I found out I was pregnant!
I always thought, "When I get pregnant, I'm not letting that stop me from working out!" Pssshhh! Life sometimes has other plans. I haven't worked out because in the beginning I was just feeling way too tired and queasy to even THINK about working out...NOW, I don't want to think about it because ...TMI....MY BOOBS! Ugh. I don't think I need to go into great detail...hahaha!
So, I am just trying to walk and get out and do things and trying to make healthy choices when eating. I haven't had any weird pregnancy cravings, but one thing this kid is NOT is a vegetarian. I have to have meat. If I don't, I feel very hungry and angry (haha) and almost sick until I get some meat. The baby gets angry too. hahaha!
We should find out what we are having by the end of June!
Exciting times!! Baby is due in November!
