What to Expect in Your First Trimester
If you’re part of the 70% of women that experience morning sickness, it gets better, I promise. You will feel like a human again very soon. Right now, it’s a season of tough.
I hope this list puts a smile on your (possibly green) face!
You might be in your 1st trimester if…
… your boobs just grew a size (like overnight!) and have newly visible veins.
… your nipples are sore AF and are starting to resemble pepperonis.
… you’re constantly thinking, “What is that smell?”
… the idea of walking through the grocery store makes you puke a little in your mouth... And yet, you want an egg roll, RIGHT NOW.
… you realize that every time you said you were tired in your life - you were NOT tired. THIS is tired.
… you just woke up from a nap...in your car...on your lunch break.
… the only things you’re eating are bagels, pop tarts, and jolly ranchers.
… the toilet paper roll is constantly needing to be changed. But not from going #2.
… every time you look in the mirror, you think “Am I bloated or starting to show?”
… your hormones are making you feel wacky. You cry, laugh, scream, are horny, and despise the thought of sex, all within a 24 hour period.
… you feel like you have a hangover 24/7, complete with vomiting, nausea, dizziness, that light headed feeling, body aches and exhaustion. EXCEPT you didn't enjoy any margaritas last night
