How Peanut’s Mom Feels

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.
