I don’t have an overwhelming desire to share with everyone how I’ve been feeling, but since it seems to be a popular question in the first trimester, we thought it would be a good idea to write a short piece on it. Here are some possible side effects according to “What to Expect When You’re Expecting.”
Fatigue, Lack of Energy, Sleepiness: Check. The thought of lifting a finger to type sometimes seems like an overwhelming obstacle. Not really, but it does seem like a real rarity to muster up the energy to go walk around the lake – forget jogging.
Nausea/Morning Sickness: Moderate. No vomiting yet. This is nice. We’re at week 8 now and I feel fortunate I haven’t had to go through some of the horror stories I’ve heard. I have been a bit nauseous here and there, but nothing worth complaining about.
Increased sensitivity to smells: Oh yes, check. This is terrible sometimes, but also fantastic others.
Other than that, I feel a bit bloated, but nothing really too crazy. All in all, everything seems relatively comfortable so far and I’m very grateful for a husband who’s been picking up the slack around the house while I haven’t really felt like doing much.
