First Trimester Update!

I definitely want to remember all of these things in the future so wanted to share all the details!!

Click here for my first 2 week symptoms

Click here for my 1-12 weeks symptoms

And here for our pregnancy journey

How Far Along?

– As I type this I am 12 weeks and 5 days! (proofreading and posting this at 19 weeks haha oops!)

Weight Gain?

– I have gained 1 pound so far.. I gained more thought like week 5 but I then lost it. My weight fluctuates so much but so far I'd like to keep the weight gain at a minimum given I got pregnant at the heaviest I've ever been!

Maternity Clothes?

– I've been living in sweatpants and leggings at home and only have one type of legging that goes high up on my belly and its so comfy! I like being comfy so I think I will buy a few more of those to have on hand. Right now I just have to dress as if I'm bloated which happens to be even before pregnancy by the end of the day.


– This past week has been annoying since I was sick with Covid but I usually have to get up to pee in the night at least 2 times so sleep is fine but interrupted for sure!

Best Moment This Week?

– I've only been feeling sore boobs so far this week after getting over my sickness so thats good! Haven't felt any nausea.

Weird Pregnancy Moment?

– I started having round ligament pain this week which isn’t horrible but not fun either.

Baby Movement?

– Not yet! I don’t think I will feel that for quite a few weeks.

Food Cravings?

– I loveeee fruit and salads now but I will still eat any junk food.

Anything Making You Queasy?

– Sometimes how my dog Misia smells, it's getting a bit better but also the fridge is lessoning up. It used to smell so bad to me.


– We did the 10 week blood test and have a gender reveal party this Saturday to find out! Here's the blog post on that!

Something You’re Looking Forward To?

– To be done with birth! haha
