Honestly, my first trimester was pretty perfect in regards to physical symptoms. I was rarely nauseous and my main annoyance was the fact that I needed to pee like crazy (though nothing compared to the frequency I pee now...). I was also extremely exhausted and spent many vaca days sleeping.
The other major thing I noticed was that my cute underwear no longer fit comfortably and I had to switch over to the "granny panties".
There was some minor cramping while my body began to stretch, but other than that, it was pretty easy going.
Second trimester was better, though. I got my cute lil bump, got to see Nat for the first time, got to find out we were having a lil boy, and began shopping. I was less tired and had more information so that I could obsess at the Nat in what I viewed was a healthier way.
My anxiety and stress lessened a lot after finding out I was having a son. I was able to relax and become more fixated on my son instead of all the unknowns. Symptoms were minimal. I started to feel my son move which reduced most of my major fears.
And now I'm even closer to the end, to having a son to snuggle with. I hope the third trimester is good to me and that all goes well as we get closer to D-day. Less than three months left!!!!
