The First Trimester

The first trimester is not always sunshine and rainbows. It is okay to be miserable and yet still be happy you are pregnant. For some it feels like the stomach flu. Except it doesn’t last 24 hours it lasts 12-14 weeks.

You might be in the first trimester if:

The good news is that for most people the fatigue and nausea lift in the second trimester. Until then focus on the fact that your body is doing an incredible thing right now. Your baby is rapidly developing during this first trimester. Major organs and body parts are beginning to form and your baby’s heart starts to beat during this trimester.

As you lay down for your 4th nap of the day, remind yourself that you are not lazy, you are more than likely forming your little one’s toes during that nap. Pat yourself on the back and get snoozing!

Yours truly,

Stork Mama
