Anyways, I've managed to make it through the first trimester. Gracefully? NO With ease? NO But I made it. I'm now finishing up week 14 and the last 2 weeks have been really good. Can't complain. Well, except for those extra pounds that snuck up super fast. The problem with these extra pounds is that they don't look like a prego belly - they look more like a muffin top or a one-too-many-burritos belly. Just some extra fat around the middle. Pretty, I tell ya. I'm working on accepting this new fat and not cringing every time I look in the mirror. Easier said than done.
May 18, 2012 - 12 weeks (+4 lbs)
How Far Along: 14 weeks, 6 days
Weight Gain: +7 (no longer fluctuating, just going up, up up)
Size of Baby Becker: a lemon, weighing in at approx 1.5 oz
Food Cravings: I've really been wanting grapefruit juice but have yet to get any. Other than that, no real cravings right now. I did make a chocolate cake over the weekend and I eat a piece (or 2) every single day. Not really a craving - I just really hate to waste food. :-)
Food Aversions: Doing better with this too; eating more fruits and veggies. They no longer disgust me like they did before.
On another note: I just finished reading the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. I hear pregnancy hormones are bad - well, just try reading about Christian Grey. I'm in love. And I now need therapy.
