First Trimester | Baby Ramirez 2017

I decided to document our pregnancy as a way to get all my feelings and emotions out and to later look and remember this beautiful time in our lives while noticing the differences and similarities with our first pregnancy. I hope you enjoy if you decide to follow along on this life changing journey.

My first trimester was more of the stereotypical which was the total opposite of my pregnancy with Sophia (read more here). This time around I had fatigue, heartburn, nausea, food aversions, sore nipples which made breastfeeding fun (read more about my breastfeeding experience with Sophia here). I even started to wear maternity pants immediately although I could have gotten by with regular pants for a little while longer but maternity ones are much more comfortable so I thought what the heck.

Emotions:
I guess I was so preoccupied with taking care of Sophia 24/7 and babysitting another baby for a few hours each day that I didn't really have time to think about fear as much as I did when I was pregnant with Sophia. Of course, fear still came but it was different fear than just potentially miscarrying but also financial situations and our living situation (one situation has been fixed but the other is still looming around our heads, adulting is hard sometimes). Mostly it was just hard to grasp that another baby was actually growing inside of me with the craziness of life and a toddler.


Cravings:
I still wouldn't say I had cravings but I did have a ton of food aversions. The nausea was that bad that I couldn't even think about eating, I in fact had to force myself to eat. I even lost a few pounds during this time. The only thing I could seem to hold down was fresh salads and fresh fruit. I also had a harder time giving up caffeine this time around even though I would feel a thousand times worse after drinking just one can of soda but that didn't stop me.

Excuse the raw footage you are about to see but this is real life where I do not have time for perfectly styled or lighted photos.

What were the biggest differences, if any, between your pregnancies? Do you think the difference had anything to do with carrying a different gender?
