All Things Baby Evang

the joys of pregnancy?

As we are somewhere in the 18th week of pregnancy I thought I’d let you know how mine has been progressing since we found out about it.  Since that finding out part didn’t happen until Baby was well under way, its safe to say that the side-effects have been pretty mild thus far. The first few months I was just TIRED EXHAUSTED. I would usually start the workday and be fine until 10- 10:30 before I was pretty much pooped. Then I’d get home, eat a bowl of cereal and go to sleep until the next morning when I would this again. I have eaten more cereal lately than any other period in my life, more then high school and college combined. This is mostly because it is so quick and easy and partly because it was one of the few things I was willing to eat. Also because its a good source calcium and iron – two things you’re supposed to be extra diligent about getting when expecting.  Don’t worry, there was variety in my diet – I  alternated between Cinnamon Life and Cream of Wheat.

The biggest and most consistent cravings havs been for fresh fruit but I would be lying if I said I haven’t eaten plenty of Reese’s and Cheetos.  I had nausea but haven’t thrown up or anything like that and since I’m past the first trimester hopefully won’t at all. The books say the second trimester is the best because you are past all the tiredness and sickness of the first and the baby’s not so big that you feel like you’re carrying a bowling ball around.

I’ve finally started to ‘show’ in the past week or so and have got a little belly going on…will get Adam to take a picture so we can post it.

Next doctor’s appointment is at the end of the month. I will let everyone know if we learn anything exciting then!
