How Iâ€™m Feeling:Â My boobs have grown at least 1 cup size if not more in the past couple of weeks. Â As someone who has always had small boobs, this part is kind of exciting. Â However, the soreness is not nearly as exciting! Â They hurt worse than they ever do before my period. Â I canâ€™t really lay on my stomach anymore because they hurt so bad. Â My doctor said it should get better after the first trimester, so cheers to that!
I havenâ€™t really had the typical morning sickness just yet. Â There have been times that my stomach hasnâ€™t felt settled and Iâ€™ve had little waves of nausea, but not severe and definitely no throwing up. Â Maybe Iâ€™ll be one of the lucky ones?
Maybe this is TMI, but Iâ€™m having the worst constipation. Â Thatâ€™s probably what is making my stomach feel bad actually. Â Iâ€™m hoping to figure this one out soon too. Â I used to drink caffeine when I had this rare issue, but my doctor said no to caffeine.
I obviously have no real bump yet, but I can feel that my stomach is changing. Â It is sticking out a little more than it used to and it feels more squishy, but not quite like it would if it were just fat. Itâ€™s just a slight change in the way it feels.
What Iâ€™m Eating:Â I havenâ€™t had any food aversions yet really. Â I bought some kettle corn yesterday because I thought it sounded so good. Â I took a few bites and now seeing the bag in the pantry makes me a little queasy. Â Thatâ€™s really the only example like that. Â I am, however, craving red meat like crazy. Â This has been going on for a few weeks now. Â I have always liked hamburgers and ground meat, chose to avoid it a lot for health reasons. Â Nowadays, I canâ€™t get enough of it and Iâ€™m listening to my body and giving into the cravings more than I used to (but certainly not every day).
There is so much information out there about pregnancy dos and donâ€™ts and Iâ€™m just plain confused now. Â I read â€œPanic Free Pregnancyâ€ and was feeling a whole lot better about things because he takes a liberal approach and made me feel better about drinking tea, exercise, taking medicine, etc. Â When I went to the doctor though, they gave me a handout that said pretty much no medications (which I donâ€™t really take anyways), no caffeine and only light exercise where my heart rate stays below 140 bpm.I have stuck to my doctorâ€™s advice and errored on the conservative side, which I was planning on doing anyways. Â The one thing that is really aggravating me is the exercise thing. Â I know that I need to water it down a little bit, but I always thought you could continue doing what you were doing prior to pregnancy, so I thought that running would be fine. Â I used an actual heart rate monitor yesterday and couldnâ€™t even get to a run without it going over 140 bpm. Â I know that Iâ€™m not in the best shape of my life, but I have been running and doing Insanity for a total of 5 days per week for several weeks now and prior to that exercising as well. Â Iâ€™m going a little stir crazy not being able to get a great sweat session in anymore. Â Any thoughts?
