|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?
