Mini D's 1st Trimester (Weeks 4-8)

November 8, 2015
(Test 1 at 3 weeks, 5 days )

We just got done with a full family day at a Joe Mauer bowling event and I just decided to take a test. I wouldn't have said we were trying, we just weren't preventing anything.

It was positive.


November 11, 2015
(4 weeks, 1 day)

We celebrated our 8 year wedding anniversary with a couples massage and dinner at Wildfire!


November 15, 2015
(4 weeks, 5 days)


We had our family Christmas today on my Dad's side like we do every year. Usually it's a drinking event, but when my Mom asked me if I was bringing any wine, I said "No, I didn't think so, but I could." She immediately got suspicious. We ended up telling her that day, but swore her to secrecy because we were going to wait until Christmas to share the news with everyone. I did get to snuggle up my Cousin, Nicole's little boy, Brantley.


November 16, 2015
(Test 2 at 4 weeks, 6 days)

I waited a week after the first one I took and then took another test and that one was positive, too!

(6 weeks, 3 days)

We celebrated Thanksgiving with our families and I ate so much. It was a great day with family. That's another day that we usually have some wine. My Aunt and Uncle brought some with to my parents house from their local winery and of course I couldn't have any. I don't think anyone thought anything of it though.

(Week 8)

Today is Jingleball day! Such a fun night, but I was so exhausted by the end of the night. I was definitely struggling the next day and it took me pretty much all week to catch up on sleep and rest. One of my favorite pics of the night is us with Iggy Azalea.


UPDATE:

Maternity Clothes: Not yet.

Sleep: I am so tired these weeks 4 through 8. I am exhausted when I come home from work and take 3+ hour naps on both Saturdays and Sundays. I remember being tired with Hailey, but not THIS tired.

Best Moment: Taking the first test and surprising Wayne with it and then taking the second test and confirming it. Also, as much as pregnancy symptoms suck sometimes, I am thankful for them because they let me know something is going on.

Movement: None yet.

Food Craving: Cheese and I need to eat all the time.

Food Aversions: None yet.

Morning Sickness: None. With Hailey I couldn't take my prenatal in the morning without food, otherwise I would feel nauseous. This time I can take it anytime and feel o
OK.

Gender: Don't know yet, but we will be finding out.

Symptoms: Tired (see above) and HUNGRY! Again, I remember having to eat more often with Hailey, but seriously I HAVE to eat every two hours or so. It's ridiculous. I feel like that's all I'm doing. I am also more sensitive and feel like I cry way easier.

Also, my boobs hurt SO bad. It's painful. They are OK during the day when I am wearing a bra, but the transition at night when I take it off is excruciating, so sometimes I have been even sleeping with my bra on. I know that may be TMI, but it's the truth.

I feel like I am more achy and sore this time around. Like my body is gearing up and getting ready for this baby. I was pretty miserable those first weeks.

What I miss: Not being tired. I am just tired ALL THE TIME.

What I'm looking forward to: Our first Dr. appointment at 9 weeks on 12/17/14.

I'm lumping weeks 4-8 together, because basically those 4 weeks I had the same type of symptoms. I was so tired and hungry and it took everything in me to keep going. I tried to take it day by day.

Stay tuned for more Mini D updates.
