|18-week baby bump|
My first trimester was long and miserable. I threw up almost every day. I was so tired and sick. I remember feeling so sad because I thought pregnancy was supposed to be an exciting and happy time in my life. I was worried all the time because I thought that something bad was going to happen to the baby. The one thing that saved me during this time, surprisingly, was going to work every day. As sick as I was, I never called in and I never threw up at work. It kept me busy and kept my mind off how yucky I felt. When I hit 12 weeks and was still sick I got concerned that the morning sickness would never go away. Then one day, probably around 15 or 16 weeks I didn’t throw up my breakfast. After that, I magically started to feel like a human again.
What was your first pregnancy experience like? How was it different from your others?
I know exactly how you feel, I SO missed being pregnant as soon as I had my baby girl. I loved being a cute little pregnant lady; it made me feel uber important and special. During pregnancy, my body took care of the baby on its own, but then when the baby came out, there was so much to do and worry about! Anwyho, thanks for sharing. I'm so happy that you were able to overcome your miscarriages and have a healthy baby at last!
We tried for a year and a half to get pregnant with our first and when we finally got the positive test, I couldn't believe it! I did have some morning sickness but it wasn't too bad and I really didn't mind being pregnant. My second pregnancy was almost identical to the first except the last couple of weeks were a lot worse. Since then I've have 3 miscarriages so I can definitely identify with what you said about being nervous that things weren't going the way they should be.

Sorry to hear of your struggle to get pregnant (but thank you for sharing it). My pregnancy were all pretty easy, so I am thankful for that 🙂
I totally miss pregnancy afterwards too!! I love having them inside!! 🙂 But it's totally different now with two toddlers!!
I miss pregnancy at times too. It saddens me because we are done having kids and I'll never experience it again. I felt pretty nauseous with my pregnancies too and it lasted all day.
Thanks for reading! It is really cool how your body takes care of your baby on it's own for 9 months. It seemed a lot harder taking care of him once he was born.
I'm sorry to hear about your miscarriage. I'm glad we can relate! Thanks for reading!
My struggles were small compared to what could of been. I'm just happy to have had a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby in the end. Thanks for reading 🙂
It has to be so different when you have little ones to look after.
Feeling nauseous was the worst! I'm sure I'll be sad after I'm done having kids too.
