Here is a brief summary of trimester 1: Easy! Exhausted! No sickness! Some food sounded REALLY good or disgusting.
Month 4: The hardest yet! I got the stomach flu twice and had a few complications which led us to the ER. Everything turned out perfect. But still the scariest thing I've ever experienced. This led me to missing a few days of school so that way I can rest and take it easy! It seemed to work well! Not to mention my husband is amazing. I could go on and on and bore you with how lucky I am but I won't. Brian is just a wonderful husband, so supportive, loving and caring! He has helped SO much with everything. Love that man! He is going to be the best dad and I cannot wait to see him in that role! I know it will just melt my heart.
Month 5: I just turned 20 weeks! Awwww what an amazing feeling this is to be HALF way done! Pregnancy so far has been really awesome and easy but I am dying to meet this little one! Our baby has really started to move this week. I think it's doing flips or something, the coolest feeling ever!!! I can't wait till the feeling gets stronger!! One thing that has surprised me is that I didn't think it was going to bother me when people touch my stomach or talk to my baby. Well it does. It really weirds me out, and I hate it! The only person that doesn't bother me is Brian. I love when he touches my tummy and talks to our baby everyday when we wake up, when we are just lounging on the couch, when I get home from work and when we go to sleep! Other people..... not so much. I really feel bad about not liking it but maybe I will like it when I start to show more! Or when I get used to having this belly.
