Lately, my pregnancy is quite going fine. I am rarely experiencing nausea and dizziness but more likely controlling on my food intake.
Anyways, I’d just like to note and look back at my First Trimester Journey. =)
As you may all know I haven’t been posting quite some time since May because of workloads in the office as well as we were busy preparing for our simple Church Wedding which I will be sharing as well hopefully time permits me. *cross fingers*
When we found out that we were pregnant, we weren’t really looking into announcing the great news right away since we wanted to keep mum about it. Although, clearly A and I were equally excited and a bit anxious for my next pregnancy. I was a mess during my first one with Adrian since I seem to be overly moody to the point of creating chaos all over the house. Believe me when A already swore to heaven he won’t get me pregnant ever again! lol!
Before I was into beauty blogging so I wasn’t really documenting most of the journey here in my blog. I was of course documenting it in another account. (yes I have another account) in Tumblr.
I didn’t want at first to divert my beauty blog into a mommy blog but when I first came into this blog, I got so inspired about it that hey, I can not miss out on this once in a lifetime journey. Being a mom.
So here I am, doing my own blog about my motherhood journey as well as doing some beauty reviews still which I can never put down but now is more of like a side dish to the main course.
Celebrating pregnancy is like icing to a cake in a marriage guys!
Marriage is taken to a whole lot more when couples are in this journey together. Discovering each others boundaries as well as compromising time for each one. It is not easy at first but knowing that you have each other you will draw the strength to hold on and make it to the end. After all, it’s the both of you who made it happen!
Right now, I want to remember that moment, to take a look back at those times, I haven’t been taking photos of myself but yes I do like my face today than the previous one. I felt less changes on the physical but more on the hormonal?? lol!
Body Changes: I’m feeling pregnant!
I feel several changes happening in me even if I may not look pregnant. Most of the symptoms are minor and is expected. Nonetheless they caused me a lot of discomfort, and I knew I need to cope with it to make to work as well as making adjustments in my routine.
Although pregnant mommas experience different kinds of symptoms, here were mine:
Fatigue and light-headedness
- taking time to rise slowly from a seated or lying position,
- avoid standing for long periods and
- making sure to get enough food and rest.
Nausea and vomiting – These are the worst times during my first trimester. Despite this morning sickness is not a serious problem as long as we get enough water and nutrients. Here are some of the remedies:
- Always having crackers for a few bites upon waking up,
- Keeping meals smaller but avoiding an empty stomach.
- Take enough liquids between meals.
- Avoiding strong odors and finding a place to get some fresh air.
- Avoiding fatty and spicy foods.
