In case you missed it, I am having a baby! Andrew and I found out mid-March that we are expecting a little one and we are so excited. Time already feels like it is flying by and we just said adios to the first trimester which means it is time for a pregnancy update! I have already noticed there are some general questions people ask so I thought now is the perfect time to answer those especially for my family members I may not see very often. So here is goes!
First Trimester Pregnancy Q&A
Q. When are you due?
A. November 3rd. Which is so close yet so far away.
Q. Have you had any morning sickness?
A. I went to the doctors for the first time at 5 weeks and ever since people have been warning me that morning sickness begins at 6 weeks and to be prepared. However, I have not had any sickness (knock on wood), just very tired!
Q. How did you find out?
A. My menstrual cycle is very regular and I also have regular monthly cyst pain. When the cyst pain lasted three weeks instead of just one I knew something was up and took a test!
Q. Was Andrew Excited?
A. So excited! We have talked about this for awhile and I think I was panicking more than him once it was confirmed, haha.
Q. Do you want a boy or a girl?
A. I have always asked other pregnant women this and scoffed when they said it didn’t matter. Now I get it and it totally doesn’t matter at all, though Andrew and I both have a feeling its a girl. We will find out in June!
Q. How did your families react?
A. Super excited and emotional! Andrew and I are both the youngest in the family and our siblings are finished having babies so everyone is very excited to have a baby to snuggle!
Q. Any cravings yet?
A. I had one week where I practically ate an italian sandwich every single day. Honestly, as I type this is makes me want another one, haha. And recently I have really been craving meat like burgers. Which if you knew me before I am not a meat eater at all so this is definitely new for me!
So far this pregnancy has been amazing. I get very excited for each doctors appointment to reassure that I am pregnant because I haven’t felt much different, HA! Stay tuned for more updates and let me know if there is anything particular you would be interested in!
