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!

  • I love Disneyland but experiencing it with my son brought a whole new experience. His favorite thing was World of Color. He didn’t look amused on rides but i could tell he loved them too. Can’t wait to go back! 🏰 .

  • A day late but so thankful for you, my rainbow 🌈 baby. You are so loved and wanted. We tried so hard for you. Your brother is definitely planned and wanted too, but YOU my son are our rainbow baby.

To all those suffering with infertility or miscarriages, I understand what you’re going through. We had 2 miscarriages before we had our rainbow. I remember people telling us after our first that it’s my body’s way of cleaning out my body and the next one will stick! Then after our next miscarriage, I was broken. My husband left trying again up to me and I’m so glad we did.

  • Lucas is seriously loving @Motts Applesauce Clear Pouches. #ad

It’s great that it comes in clear packaging so you can see what’s inside. We got the no sugar added applesauce and he loved it the first time he tried it #QualityYouCanSee

It’s a great quick snack for on the go or whenever! We got this at our local @Krogerco (@mysmithsgrocery). #MottsAtKroger
  • Roses are red

Because we’re due
