First of all, thank you so much everyone for an amazing response to my last post. My goodness! I could not stop smiling the whole day, reading all your sweet comments. Avinash and I were overwhelmed. So thank you😊
I also told you guys that I will share my pregnancy journey with all of you from the very beginning. So, here I am to start with my First trimester..
My First Trimester- the fun begins..
Well! My first trimester was not at all fun and a little hard for me. I could not eat anything . I had nausea almost all the time and I remember how I ate only paranthas with mango pickle everyday. The thought of eating a pizza (which is my favourite) made me feel sick and I also felt like vomiting sometimes. Yes…I got no cravings in these three months of my pregnancy. I think my first trimester was one LONG HANGOVER…Lol. It made me feel sick, vomit, lay on the bed all the time. Sometimes, the hangover felt like the worst thing and it even made me cry. I broke down a lot of times. But, Thank god I got a partner like Avinash. I feel so lucky to have him. He was always there by my side and helped in every way possible.
Wow!I saw my baby..
I still remember my first ultrasound. It was my 7th week. Our baby was of the size of a small seed and we could see that fluttering heartbeat on the screen. And then in the the next appointment, our little seed had sprouted and developed arms and legs. We were amazed to see our child growing so fast. I really treasure that moment when Avinash was looking at his child.It was the best feeling in the world.
Some tips from me….
There were some things that helped me to overcome morning sickness. I really want to share it with you.
- Have a dry toast or cracker as soon as wake up in the morning.
- Take small meals every 2-3 hrs.
- I used to sniff dove soap whenever I felt nauseous.
- Drink cold milk.(obviously if it’s summer time)
- Wear comfortable and loose clothes.
- Avoid spicy food.
- Try to keep yourself busy. Reading a book, playing games or meeting friends will keep your preoccupied.
- Drink lots of water.
- Take rest.
- Lastly, always remember that the key to good health care is in your mind. Don’t take stress or think too much, rather try to express yourself and have a positive attitude.
I hope these basic tips are of some help. If you have more suggestions to add to this list, please comment below. I would also love to read about your story of this beautiful and emotional roller coaster ride.
This was almost the end of my first trimester. Just look at that lil bump. It is one of those first pregnancy pics when you can finally see your bump. It was such a thrill. It makes the bond between you and your baby grow stronger.
