I apologize for no posts last Thursday/Friday. We lost power and once it came back we still didn’t have internet or cable for 3 days. It bothered me a little but then I took full advantage of the break. It was actually really nice and forced me to do other things that I normally don’t get to spend a lot of time doing.
Anyways, I’m back and I’m ready to share some updates on my pregnancy. I planned on doing separate posts for the first 4 big weeks of my pregnancy but I decided to combine them because they were rather similar.
Hopefully by the end of the week I can have you all caught up to date on my pregnancy.

Each week I Taught 6 classes: 2 Group Power Strength Classes, 2 Boot Camp classes, 2 Fit For Life Classes, and several long walks with Cooper
NAUSEA at its finest. Also very tired. This was a rough week for morning sickness.

Nausea… wish I could say I was doing amazing
Pregnancy nausea is no joke and it kicked me on my butt most of the week. Some days my nausea was worse in the morning and other times it was worse at night. There wasn’t a science to it. I did my best to eat every 2 hours which kept my stomach from getting empty. That’s when my nausea was the worst! Besides the nausea I was tired a lot. As soon as Marc got home from work at 6pm, I laid on the couch for the remainder of the night unless I was teaching a class. He was my savior each day.
Week 10 day 1, was a great day! My nausea was kept to a minimum and while I wasn’t the energizer bunny I felt a little more normal. Week 10 Day 4 was miserable. I had a migraine and it left me on the couch for a full day. I’m happy to say that the next day was so much better and I felt more like myself again!
Almost everything in the fridge and pantry. If someone put a meal in front of me I would eat it no problem, but thinking about food made me sick!
Veggies…. they grossed me out unless they were mixed into eggs in salads or on sandwiches.
Cooking has been the biggest challenge for me. I managed to cook 2 dinner meals this week and it was super difficult. I hate looking in the fridge at any food. Deciding what to eat makes me nauseous. I wouldn’t say there was one particular item that I had an aversion to, it was almost everything except bread, eggs, pretzels, bread, & eggs. Also some fruit.
Things started to get a little better, my days actually had healthy meals and I felt like some of the meals were super healthy. There wasn’t a particular item that I had an aversion to, I pretty much knew what I wanted and that was all I was going to eat! Veggies have still been tough unless they are cooked in soups, scrambled in eggs, or salads.
Pizza, Bread & Butter, Eggs & Toast, Oranges
Grapefruit or citrus fruits, salad (weird), Bread, Cheese, Chicken & steak
Grilled Chicken sandwiches, Tuna fish, Honeydew melon, pretzels, cape cod potato chips, chocolate chip cookies, steak, potatoes
Chicken Salad, Fruit, Eggs, pizza, clementines, grapefruits, pineapple,

Sleep has been pretty good, I woke up twice this week to pee which was interesting. I thought it was too early for that.
Slept like a champ this week, as soon as my head hits the pillow I’m unconscious!
I am sleeping pretty well and haven’t had many wake ups. I napped 3 times this week. I felt extra tired and the naps definitely helped.
I pretty much sleep like a rock once I fall asleep. I had a few nights that were challenging to fall asleep but it wasn’t bad. When I wake up I need to pee ASAP so that’s not fun.
LOOKING FORWARD TO:
My 8 week ultrasound. I can’t wait to SEE THE HEARTBEAT!!!
we just had our ultrasound and saw the heartbeat, now I can’t wait until the next one so we can hear the heartbeat! I was super nervous going into this appointment because my blood work numbers were a little lower then the doctor would have liked to see. It made me super anxious for this appointment, but once I saw the heartbeat I felt a huge weight lifted off my chest. Seriously, I could breathe and it felt amazing to know everything was okay!
I am looking forward to our ultrasound on New Years Eve. I can’t wait to see that little baby again.
I am looking forward to our ultrasound on New Years Eve. I am also getting anxious to know the gender but I know it’s too early. Seeing the heart beat and baby move is all I really care about.
BOY OR GIRL?
I had a boy suspicion.
Going with a girl now because Marc thinks its a girl.
I have mixed feelings still!
No purchases just yet! I think once we know the gender I will feel comfortable buying things.
We told Marc’s family on Thanksgiving, it was nice to finally let them know the exciting news. Everyone was thrilled!
We had an ultrasound and I found out I was 8 weeks and 6 days which was a week later then I thought! My due date is July 13th and I’m thrilled for a summer baby
I was a bit cranky this week. My nausea was so bad I didn’t want to talk unless I had to. I felt bad for Ava and Marc but it was a rough week. I sincerely apologize for my lack of energy and enthusiasm.
I felt a little more normal this week. I had a little more pep in my step minus the migraine set back. I had an ocular migraine that left me on the couch for 2 full days. Once I started feeling better I got some christmas shopping done and extra computer work that I have been wanting to do. I did have a few mood swings and moments that I cried for no reason (sorry Marc)
I give him a lot of credit for dealing with me for 2 1/2 months now. He’s amazing for putting up with me and for getting everything done around the house!
Well that’s it for now…I promise I have better pregnancy pictures coming in the next update!!
If you have ever been pregnant before, what was your first trimester like?
Do you have any guesses as to what I’m having?
