My pregnancy summary

First trimester:

I definitely felt a lot more headaches and more of the cramps you feel in your lower abdomen. You know that feeling you have when you have your period? That’s what I felt. The headaches were really bad but I didn’t take anything for them. Many times they lasted the whole day. I started to feel more nauseated and car sick in the car. I was already more prone to car sickness before pregnancy but pregnancy definitely made this worse. I would get winded more often because I stopped working out (I really don’t recommend not working out. I used the exercise bike now and then but nothing really major.). My allergies seemed worse too. That’s the thing about pregnancy. All your hormones are pretty much making you crazy. I didn’t have trouble sleeping yet. I just felt my clothes feeling tighter. I had also gained a little bit of weight before pregnancy so when I did start getting a little bigger, I needed to get a bella band. Since this is my first pregnancy, I started showing at 12 weeks.

12 Weeks

Second trimester:

This is where the headaches pretty much stopped. I still felt sick in the car but not as bad. I felt my best in this trimester. My back started aching though. It was my lower back that was hurting a bit because my belly was growing. From the middle to the end of this trimester I felt more swelling in my hands and feet. I felt that my ring wouldn’t fit as well. On some days I could still wear them but not on others. This is when I felt the baby move for the first time when I was 24 weeks. The baby moved more during this trimester.

14 Weeks (2)

Third trimester:

It was more difficult to breath, especially when I was laying down. It took a couple of minutes to adjust before I could breath properly. My lower back ached more. I really couldn’t wear any of my rings and my shoes were so much tighter. I had trouble putting my Uggs on during the winter. The baby doesn’t move as much because there’s not much room left. I can just feel the baby shifting and changing positions. I can feel a kick or two but since the baby is getting bigger, there is less room to move around. Moving around is more painful because my joints a loosening more. Changing positions in bed is getting harder and more painful. My left ear is plugged up due to the excess my body is retaining due to the pregnancy.
