I felt hideous for most of the first trimester suffering with nausea, headaches and general exhaustion. Thankfully although I’m still very much “off” certain foods, the nausea has eased and the exhaustion is mostly manageable – especially as I have found adopting a 9pm bedtime works wonders! Now I’m 14 weeks I’m finally beginning to believe I am pregnant (yes even the scans didn’t convince me!), although I am still in the feeling like I’ve just gained weight rather than pregnant stage! Yesterday I gave in and put on a pair of maternity trousers, but they were so much more comfortable than my too tight round the middle normal trousers! I think I shall have to admit that my pre-pregnancy trousers may have to be resigned to the wardrobe for a while!
At the moment my pregnancy must haves are: fruit in jelly (I’m craving this!), peppermint cordial (it’s great for trapped wind..!) and some tummy rub (great for bonding with your bump!) – although I’ve not found one that I love yet!
