first trimester recap

I am so excited to document my pregnancy on this blog! I’ve always wanted to be a mother, and I am really looking forward to being pregnant and growing a healthy baby.

once a month, I’m going to be posting four week pregnancy “recaps”! to start off, I’m covering the first trimester and sharing about our pregnancy ‘journey’, which I’ve gotten the most questions about!

so, here goes…

Our pregnancy journey & when we told our family and friends

In the middle of last year, Lu and I started talking about getting pregnant. the more we talked, the more excited we started to get about the idea of starting our family together and ultimately agreed that we were ready. However, we already had trips planned and booked for the year in ZIKA-affected areas, so we decided to put those plans on hold and revisit at the end of the year, after all of our trips were over.

At the end of last year, right before we left for the holidays (we spend the holidays with my parents, who recently moved to Florida), we decided that I’d go off birth control and we’d start “trying.”

To be totally honest, once we decided to start “trying,” I was quickly surprised (and embarrassed) by how little I knew about my own reproductive system, after having to look up “how to get pregnant.” At nearly 30 years old, you’d think I’d understand how my body worked, but I barely knew what “ovulating” meant! True story.

Not to get too graphic, but once I learned about the physical signs of ovulation and knew I was ovulating, we tried (a couple of days before Christmas.) TMI? Get used to it!

That Christmas (well, a couple days after), my little sister, Felicia, got engaged on the beach! It was perfect, and our whole family was buzzing with happiness. A couple weeks later, she picked a date: late February, 2018 in St. Thomas (in the US Virgin Islands.)

While I was so happy for my sister, I couldn’t help but start to think about how her wedding date would affect our baby-making plans! Since St. Thomas is a ZIKA-affected area, it basically meant that if Lu and I didn’t get pregnant by March 1st, we’d have to stop again, because I would never miss my baby sister’s wedding – and I couldn’t go there pregnant and risk getting ZIKA.

I went to brunch with my girlfriends on a Sunday (January 8th, to be exact!) and I told my friends about my “dilemma.” We talked about the timeline, and I felt a little bummed about the possibility of not having a baby and delaying starting our family until 2018. In that moment, I realized how much I really did want to be a mother and have a baby with Lu.

The next day (January 9th), I entered the first day of my last period into one of those pregnancy trackers and it told me that the earliest day I could test for pregnancy was January 9th. Never in a million years did I think that it would be positive, but I figured I’d test anyway.

At around 11am on that Monday, January 9th, I ran to the nearby pharmacy, bought a pregnancy test, took it, and waited patiently, er impatiently, for the results. My heart raced. Again, I couldn’t believe how much I wanted to get pregnant!

Well, the results were in and in fact, I was pregnant!

I can’t even put the feeling into words what it was like seeing that digital YES+ on the screen, so I won’t try, but let me say this: in that moment, I felt like my entire life became meaningful and had a purpose. It seems dramatic, but it’s exactly how I felt! I also felt just completely, absolutely, and totally blessed. And thankful. And grateful.

Since it was before noon on a Monday, Lu was at work and because I didn’t want to let him know the news over the phone, I decided to withhold our “news” until he got home.

I made us a quick dinner when he got home and immediately after we were done, I said, “I have something to show you.” My heart was racing again. He started to look a little worried, and I ran to my purse, grabbed the pregnancy test stick, and showed it to him. Of course, he was just as shocked as I was at first, and then he exclaimed, “We’re having a baby! It’s happening!”

I ran to the fridge, opened a bottle of wine, and we cheers in celebration (and I savored every sip!) We enjoyed the moment together and then started talking about when and how we were going to tell our families. It was so soon (literally, I was barely 4 weeks pregnant) and of course, because of miscarriage risks (especially that early), I was worried to celebrate and share too much.

If you didn’t know this about me already, let me tell you now: I’m very, very close with my family. My parents know everything about me, I don’t keep secrets from my family, and they are the first people I call whenever I have good – or bad – news.  After an hour or so, I just couldn’t wait any longer.

We called my mom and dad. We told them and they were so happy, proud, and excited. Then, we called my little sister Felicia and her fiancé, Ben. They were both traveling, so we did a “Houseparty” call, where you can basically have multiple people on video chat. Lu and I said, “We have something to tell you!” and then I held up the pregnancy test stick and they were SHOCKED. Absolutely shocked, then so happy and excited.

 

hen, we called Lu’s family. It was so fun to let them all know, and it felt more real and real. I kept saying, “It’s so early, so who knows what will happen, but yes, we’re pregnant!”

We didn’t tell anyone else until I was about 7 weeks (I told my two best friends at a restaurant after my grandfather’s funeral, because I felt so emotional and sad and needed to share some happy news and felt my grandfather’s blessing.) They cried! After that, it wasn’t until about the 12-week point that we started telling a handful of super close friends and extended family.

Now, fast forward to almost 16 weeks, and we’ve told everyone! We couldn’t be happier to share the news – it feels so much more real with every person we tell.

The first trimester recap

Since I’ve received quite a few questions about my first trimester from many of you, I figured it would be best to answer them in a Q&A- style! And if you have any other questions, feel free to leave them in the comments!

How far along are you?

I’m 15 weeks and 5 days.

When are you due?

Late September!

Did you get sick?

No! I feel so lucky to not have suffered from morning sickness. I never felt nauseous, I never had food aversions, and I didn’t have to change my diet at all (aside from the no-no list) and vegetables still tasted as delicious as ever!

What symptoms did you have?

Aside from not having morning sickness, I do feel like I got every single other symptom! Here are a few:

  • My boobs grew almost immediately! Ugh. And they were so, so sore, for about 3 weeks. As a larger chested lady (I was a 34DD before pregnancy), I was dreading even bigger boobs. At about 7 weeks, my boobs had a huge growth spurt and grew a full cup size. I had to buy new sports bras, because I was spilling out of my old ones!
  • Fatigue. Once 2pm hit, I’d start to feel tired. Not the 3pm slump-in-the-workday fatigue, this was different. This was full-body fatigue and the type of exhaustion that keeps you from doing anything but sleeping. From about week 7-10, I took a 2-3 hour nap at 3pm Monday through Friday. As someone who had never napped before, this was so frustrating, because I couldn’t get my work done. However, I knew it was temporary, and I knew it was necessary for my body to rest for a healthy pregnancy. So, I gave into the naps (perks of being an entrepreneur!)
  • Breakouts. I’ve always prided myself on having clear skin, so this was one of the hardest things to deal with – and I’m still dealing with. I broke out a LOT on my chin. not exactly big white heads, but a lot of little white bumps and I’d force a pop and they’d become red and inflamed. It’s starting to get better, but it’s definitely not back to “normal.” I’m hoping it improves as my pregnancy hormones regulate a bit.
  • Carb and sugar cravings. As you all know, I’m a very healthy eater. I practice the 80/20 rule and I eat a very balanced diet. Well, that went out the window for about 1.5 months. For mostly all of February and partly into March, I ate the reverse (20% healthy, 80% unhealthy.) While I didn’t have any aversions to vegetables or healthy foods, I just really craved carb-a-licious foods and dessert. I still ate enough nutrient-dense foods to fuel myself and the baby, but I went overboard and started eating bags of chips, pizza for dinner, and LOTS of sweets. I think I ate more sweets and pizza in those 6 weeks than I did in all of 2016. Luckily, I was working out consistently (more on that in a minute), so it helped balance things out. But yes, I ate chicken fingers, fries, pizza, chips, cake, cookies, ice cream – I ATE IT ALL!

Did you work out?

Yes! As someone who works out consistently (5-6 days a week), I couldn’t imagine just stopping working out, especially when I felt up for it. Lucky not to have suffered from morning sickness, I was able to workout during my entire first trimester. Also, some of the initial advice I received was to workout during pregnancy, as it’s proven to make labor and delivery much easier. The one change I had to make was WHEN I worked out. Since I was basically useless after 3pm, I stayed committed to my morning workouts (6:30am) during the weekday, because I knew if I didn’t do it then, there was no way it was going to happen. Luckily, I had made this a New Year’s resolution (to workout in the mornings), so I had already started training my body to make those early morning wake up calls. Around week 13, I started to get out of breath more easily, so I took the intensity down a notch (ie, not cranking up the resistance as much during spin classes and running at a slower pace on the treadmill.) I plan on doing more yoga as my pregnancy progresses and my capacity for HIIT and cardio lowers.

Did you drink coffee/have caffeine?

Although my doctor said it’s totally fine to have up to two cups of coffee a day, I was never a huge coffee addict anyway, and my thought was this: if it wasn’t good for the baby, why have it? I switched to decaf coffee (and really only on the weekends and maybe a couple days during the weekday) around week 8.

Are you drinking alcohol?

Aside from the night we found out we were pregnant, I haven’t had a sip of alcohol! While I am certainly going to miss rosé all summer long, I don’t plan on drinking during my pregnancy at all.

Are you going to find out the gender?

Yes! I went down to Florida for my 30th birthday (April 1st) with my three best girl friends, my parents, my sister, her fiancé and of course, Lu. On the night of my birthday, we did a gender reveal, right before we went to dinner! There was a hilarious twist! It was perfect. I can’t wait to share the gender with all of you, soon!

Have you gained any weight?

Yes! At my 15 week appointment, I had gained 5 pounds. I weighed about 143 at my first appointment and then 148 at my 15 week appointment.

When did you start to show?

While my belly has definitely grown little by little, I didn’t truly feel “pregnant” until I was 15 weeks and 1 day. I woke up and Lu noticed that my belly was much rounder than usual. It was like something had clicked! I went to put my jeans on and I couldn’t button them! It was such a surreal moment, so I took a picture! Thankfully, I had picked up a Belly Band at Target a couple of weeks prior, so I wore that – what an amazing product!

And that’s it! That’s my first trimester recap. Since I was playing a lot of catch-up, my next recap won’t be quite as long, so sorry if this was an overshare. I’m hoping that many of you who are expecting can relate to my pregnancy story and journey!

bump progression: weeks 4 – 15

 

So far, I’m loving pregnancy – and I hope it stays that way!

    Congrats! Always loved reading your blog and following you! I had a baby 10 months ago (eek time goes too fast) so I love reading and hearing about other moms experiences. You’re going to be a great mama. And I can completely confirm working out helps with labor! I took flywheel until I was 36 weeks and barre until I was 40 weeks and it helps you prepare mentally and physically! And it makes it sooo much easier to recover.

    I am 11 weeks pregnant and due in October! So fun to read about your pregnant journey! I don’t have any friends who are pregnant along with me so hearing what someone else is experiencing is awesome. You are so lucky you haven’t had food aversions. I am a veggie lover and couldn’t look at most vegetables right now without wanting to gag. Crossing my fingers my taste buds go back to normal soon!

    Congrats Ali! My husband and I are just starting the pregnancy journey (not pregnant yet- I don’t think at least). I appreciate your mention of Zika. For me, that has been a huge concern. After traveling to affected areas and before you got pregnant, did either of you get a blood test? After a recent trip to Florida, part of me wants to get checked just to be safe. Thanks Ali!! Congrats again, you’re glowing!

    Yay!! I am so excited for you and Lu!! I am also so glad you’re going to be sharing updates. I love reading all of your suggestions. I’m probably 1-2 years behind you in this process (I am getting married in Sept and will be 30 in February) so its exciting to see a little sneak peak into the future! I’m glad conception was so easy for you and Lu! My brother and sister-in-law had the same type of experience with that! You’re going to be a great mom and I can’t wait to see your maternity style!

    Congrats! My husband and I are trying to get pregnant. The Zika virus is the worst and makes traveling so difficult! We visited St. Maarten in January and would love to go back but won’t be happening anytime soon! Can’t wait to see what else you post so I can follow along 🙂

    I am so happy for you! I am a long-time follower and this is so cheesy but the day you announced it I was so excited all day-it felt like a friend had just announced her pregnancy! 🙂

    I have a 22 month old and have learned a LOT about nutrition since having him-he has had food allergies since birth so I am pretty strictly paleo (he still nurses). He is paleo as well and your butternut squash noodles are his absolute FAVORITE. They save us when we are around other people who eat pasta and he can’t have any!

    I’m so looking forward to watching your family grow and to watch you and your baby’s nutritional journey as well 🙂 congratulations!!

    So excited for you! My husband and I were on exactly the same time frame. We started talking about it late summer, and we started trying right around Thanksgiving hoping for a September baby. Unfortunately, it’s been harder for us to conceive, but I’ve been eating as healthy as possible and making tons of your recipes and have been seeing an acupuncturist. I’m not pregnant yet, but I’m not giving up either! I’ll definitely be following your pregnancy and hoping I’m not too far behind 🙂 Congratulations!

      If you haven’t, try the clear blue easy ovulation sticks that give you the two day time frame for when you’re ovulating. It was taking longer than I had hoped and then we used those and it happened quickly.
      Also, try to stay as hopeful as you can!

Best of luck to you and Lu!!

    Congrats, Ali! Thanks for the great post, too! One question for you… I know you were taking collagen peptides before. Are you still continuing this daily regimen? Do you know what effects it has on pregnancy? The reason I ask, I’m really interested in starting a collagen regimen, and my husband and I are going to start trying in the next year or so 🙂

    Again, so happy for you and Lu!!

      Thank you so much! And yes, I’m still taking them – they help especially with your skin’s elasticity, which I’m praying is going to help prevent stretch marks on my belly! It’s also a great protein source! Good luck 🙂

    I’m 19 weeks along with my first and I got emotional reading this…congrats to you and Lu. I look forward to following you on this exciting new journey. (I also started taking collagen a few weeks ago…despite what people think about topicals, it seems to be the only thing that truly helps prevent stretch marks.)

    Congrats Ali! I recently became pregnant with my first child too (I’m 13 weeks now) and I have been an Inspiralized reader of yours and spiralized-lover since 2014. So far, I have been lucky too with no morning sickness and have been trying to cram in as many veggies and protein into my diet as I can. I’ve actually found that it’s much easier to be a mindful eater now that I’m not sipping any (many) wines. Hope you continue to feel great 🙂 – Ali

      Curious as well…planning a trip for my bday to mexico in Nov and want to start trying early 2018…I know they reccomend waiting 6 months before trying for women but was wondering if you had any sort of blood test to know you were good to go before you started trying. I am so happy for you and wishing you all the best! Thank you for being so transparent and real!

    Congrats! I am also pregnant(!!!) but not as far along and we tried for a year and a half with a miscarriage a year ago so just this February we turned to a fertility specialist here in NYC and were very lucky to get anpositive result after the first round of fertility treatments. We are currently cautiously optimistic from week to week with doctor appointments. Last week I was told by the doctor to stop all physical fitness except for walking because of an enlarged cyst on an ovary. So I am looking for any and ALL things to help stay healthy during pregnancy while my regular high intensity workouts are on hold!! I have been spiralizing more veggies, ordered collagen, and am going to start getting the Daily Harvest smoothies. Any other healthy and preggers-safe tips are MUCH appreciated!

    Congratulations and thank you for sharing! I was wondering if you took prenatal vitamins once you decided to start trying and if so, which ones would you recommend. I’m trying to get pregnant and my doctor told me to start taking them but not sure what’s a good brand. She gave me a bunch of samples to try but didn’t recommend a particular brand.
