Well I’m just starting my 12th week… this pregnancy has been pretty different from my first. I didn’t know I was pregnant with y daughter til 9 weeks.
Cravings: I don’t really crave much, not anything weird but I did eat a can of peaches. I don’t know if you would consider this a craving but I do NEED to eat a banana in the morning. I swear it helps with morning sickness.
Weightgain: I have technically gained 10 pounds. I was going to the gym steadily for 4 months before getting pregnant so I was slightly toning up but not gaining weight or losing weight. but in the first couple weeks of pregnancy I ate everything. I didn’t even know I was pregnant yet. But during the past few weeks I haven’t been eating much cause everything just disgusts me. lol
Sleep: Im sleeping pretty good,im so tired all the time, I could sleep at 730 pm if I could but I don’t let myself because I don’t want to risk waking up at like 4 am. I did sleep 11 hours the other night, I went to bed at 9 pm and woke up at 8am. I have never felt so energized in the morning, my husband gets up at 5 am and leaves around 6 for work. When I hear him stirring I usually get up and eat a yogurt. I fall back asleep til 8. Today I felt like I couldn’t get bck into a deep sleep and next thing you know, my daughter is awake.
Symptoms: I had really tender breasts until week 10. it was nuts, I don’t remember having tender breasts with Brooklyn, not til the end ish when my milk was coming in. I do feel nauseous some days more then other days. I can’t eat meat cause it really disgusts me. I gag just thinking about it. It sucks cause I love my chicken and beef. I can’t eat tacos anymore cause it gives me bad indigestion. It sucks not being able to eat the things I love. I live off of cereal, yogurt, toast, and fruit. Im not really thirsty so I have to force myself to drink. I only have 1 large glass of milk and 2 or 3 large glasses of water and I need to be drinking way more then that.
I can’t wait to start my 3rd trimester. which is in a couple weeks, I’ll hopefully blog in between that and then blog my week 12-16 week pregnancy update. I have my first prenatal apt on September 2, I could of had it earlier but none of the dates worked for me so now I have to wait blahhhh! So pumped to hear the heartbeat! It is definitely one of my favorite parts of being pregnant. I have a feeling im having a girl. My husband thinks im having one, im hoping Its a boy cause ive been so nauseous. but who knows!
