My First Trimester Update!

December 18, 2017 in Pregnancy - 8 Comments
My First Trimester Update!

I’m officially done with the first trimester as of December 11. It wasn’t too bad. After we made it past the first 3 ultrasounds, I was so relieved. With my previous miscarriage, we found out we miscarried on our second ultrasound. Read more to see how my first trimester went!

Symptoms I had

The biggest symptoms I had were fatigue and nausea. I couldn’t get enough sleep the first 10 weeks or so. I was so tired, all the time. Around week 7, the nausea came. It wasn’t too bad at first, just mostly upset stomach. However, at week 9 is when the actually throwing up started. I was so glad when that was done! The other symptoms I had were tender breasts, strong sense of smell, and acne!

How Baby Did the First Trimester

Because of my miscarriages, we got 3 ultrasounds at the fertility clinic before being transferred to my Ob. After seeing the baby those first few times is when Sean and I got really excited. Baby has had a strong heartbeat ranging from 175-155bpm. The picture below was of our last ultrasound before we entered the second trimester. We got our NT scan and ran some blood work and everything is looking great!

Stuff I Bought For Baby

Since Black Friday/Cyber Monday only happens once a year, I took advantage of the sales and got some stuff for baby. The biggest purchase I got was the Britax 2017 B Agile & B Safe 35 Travel System. Other than that, I got some gender neutral clothes and cloth diapers.

How We Are Doing

Sean and I are so excited to be entering the second trimester. Since most of our friends and family live out of state, we had to pick a date for the baby shower. To our surprise, a bunch of people are planning on coming! Our ultrasounds will not be as often now. Our next one is scheduled for January 8 and I’ll be 18 weeks then! Crazy how time is flying! We can’t wait to meet this little baby!

  • We are starting homeschooling with Lucas! He’ll be 2 in June and we both come from education backgrounds. I was an early childhood educator for over 10 years so I couldn’t wait until he could start. He already knows his alphabet, recognizes numbers, knows most colors, and loves to learn. He loves to paint and color so we let him go wild with it!

  • Towards the end of my pregnancy, I started to feel regret. Why did we decide to have another baby so close in age to Lucas? Will Lucas hate me for having to spend time with his baby brother? Will they resent me? But once Lincoln came home, Lucas has blossomed into this wonderful big brother. When Lincoln cries, Lucas tries to give him his pacifier or hold his hand. When I ask Lucas for a hug, he runs up to me and gives me one and a kiss and says “I luh you”. He doesn’t hate me... he loves me AND his baby brother and that’s all I could’ve asked for. I can’t wait to see them grow up with each other and go through life holding hands. .

  • With my first son, I pumped/breastfed for 2/3 weeks before stopping. He wasn’t gaining weight, we were told to supplement, and i just gave up. This go around, I wanted to try to go to at least 6 months. Well... I’m here and still pumping. It’s been hard especially since i have a low supply. I only make around 10/11oz a day so we still supplement but I’m determined to keep going. However, at the end of the day i know fed is best so if I ever stop pumping... I’ll be okay with that! Any tips for this pumping mama?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Baby L was born 12/4/19 at 34 weeks exactly. He was 5lbs 13oz and 17 inches long. He spent 20 days in the NICU and those were some of the hardest days of my life. Leaving Lucas at home was leaving a part of my heart at home and when i was at home, part of my heart was at the hospital. Finally, on Christmas Eve, our family was reunited and Lucas got to meet his baby brother. We are so in love. .

  • We took Lucas to the fall festival in our community and he loved it. He loved the hay, the fog machines, all the kids and seeing costumes. He’s definitely more social than my husband and I which is going to keep us on our toes! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • This diaper caddy from @_mollieollie_ is amazing. Ever since I got it, it’s been on my bed every night. Lucas still bed shares with us and has bottles throughout the night so I keep some in it plus some tissue and other necessities. It’s amazing! It has pockets on the side as well as a zip up pocket. I keep my lip balm in there! You can use code 10FinallyMm to save 10% off! https://amzn.to/343qlCC

  • People have asked us if this baby was planned or unexpected. He was definitely wanted. Sean and I decided on having another and stopped birth control to have him. He wasn’t unplanned. Granted, having 2 under 2 is going to be rough and we know this.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This pregnancy has been a lot harder than my first. I found out i have placenta previa and then at my last appointment I found out that I also have vasa previa. Vasa praevia is a condition in which fetal blood vessels cross or run near the internal opening of the uterus. If I start having contractions, baby can bleed out and die. We will know more October 28 but it looks like I’ll be heading to the hospital when I’m 32 weeks and staying there for 3 weeks and deliver via csection at 35 weeks. It’s been hard to say the least but we will do whatever we need to do to make sure Baby L makes it earth side and is safe.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We love you and can’t wait for our family of 4 to be complete 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦❤️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
