Surviving the First Trimester

As you can probably gather from my absence from this blog and instagram, the first trimester of this pregnancy was ROUGH on me. Both Max and I feel like this has been the worst I've felt in all 3 pregnancies but who really knows because I think we forget the really bad parts so we keep having more. Maybe? Anyways, this one has been rough. I've been tired and melancholy as the 2nd trimester has entered in but I was sick for what felt like forever! Like willing myself to not throw up every waking moment kind of sick. I gained a total of 1 pound in the whole first trimester and that was in the 13th week when I finally felt a little bit better. SO this is what I basically lived on since about 5 weeks pregnant until 16 weeks. It was a long bout of morning sickness but these where lifesavers to make things a little bit more tolerable.
  1. Peppermint lifesavers: anytime I was driving I have one in my mouth
  2. Saltine Crackers
  3. Cashews and Macadamian Nuts: The salty protein helps a lot!
  4. Cheddar Mozzarella Cheese Sticks: More protein!
  5. Pacific coast ice tea: Helped with getting liquid in me and the caffeine helped me keep moving through the day
  6. Sprouts instant Oatmeal: I would eat this right before bed to help me not be so hungry in the night or morning.
  7. Starbucks stainless steel cup
  8. Driving myself everywhere we went
If you are in the dredges of the first trimester, take heart! It's for a good purpose and it will come to an end at some point. It's different for everyone and can be very challenging!
