Oh Hey Friday


Friday, August 8, 2014

Oh hey, Friday, nice to see you again.  It has been a very long week, and I can't wait to sleep in and save the remaining weekends of summer.

Monday or Wednesday, I have an update on the babies with lots of new ultrasound photos, so get ready for that.  But in the meantime, these are the five things I have disliked about my first trimester.

One.  Acne.  I am not a teenager anymore, nor did I have acne as a teen.  I only get a zit here and there every once in awhile, but since the hormones are raging through my body, I am breaking out like crazy.  And they are the most painful red bitches ever.  No matter how many times I wash my face, cut back on the make up or hydrate, they keep coming back.  So unattractive.  Where is the pregnancy glow I always heard about?

Two.  My uterus is stretching like crazy.  If I bend over a certain way or my pants are too tight, I feel like I am being ripped apart.  And the check out lady at the grocery store never put my Tylenol in the bag after we paid for it.  Rude.

Three.  I have only gained one pound (since I had lost some initially) which is pretty awesome, but this belly is already popping out.  But it isn't the cute baby bump we desire.  It is the, I ate too many cookies, slices of pie, cupcakes or whatever is the sugary item of the week look.  I want my cute bump please.

Four.  A full night's rest would be amazing, but the million, ok two or three, pee breaks in the middle of the night are killing me.  I love me some sleep and need to cherish it while I can.  Am I right?

Five.  I want some new clothes.  Not as much as a first trimester gripe, but I need some more flowy shirts to cover this bump for work and outside work, but I trying on clothes in front of those mirrors in the changing room are depressing for a pregnant girl.  Anyone have some fall tops that fit this criteria they have been scoping out?

And that the complaining is done, I did love most of my first trimester and look forward to the 2nd trimester where I hear it is a lot more fun, relaxing and you look cute as ever with your bump and glow.  I have also loved seeing my babies on the ultrasound screen.  The out pour of love we received with our announcement.  My love for eating more fruit and veggies than I have ever wanted.  And so much more.

Linking up for Oh Hey, Friday!
