Hello second trimester! I am just about 14 weeks and beyond thrilled. I feel like things are finally starting to get moving. The first trimester of this pregnancy was full of waiting....waiting to hear if we were actually pregnant after IVF, waiting to see the heartbeat, waiting to see if we are having twins or a single, waiting to get passed the 12 week mark so I can relax and not freak out every time I feel the slightest cramping pain. Waiting, waiting, and more waiting. Have I mentioned I hate waiting?
My first trimester was pretty uneventful for the most part. Aside from the food aversions and the smell of people's hair making me sick, it was pretty easy going. Everyone talks about cravings, but no one tells you about the aversions. It's soooo weird. I love food. Any food, anywhere...but man those first 10 weeks were interesting. I threw up at the sight of a cookie. Weird right ? I'm so glad I'm passed that stage. I did find the following items helped me get through it.
