Those early weeks were filled with many questions, most of which centred around proper weight gain. You'd think it would be different the second time around but it wasn't for us. Those concerns and doubts we experienced with the first returned for the second. #newdad #firsttimeparents #newmom #parenting #baby #babyweight
"Does this peanut butter taste fishy to you?" I asked my husband. His immediate response was, "You can't say that - that's something a pregnant woman would say!" I had a good laugh, and said, "No really, does it taste like fish?" He tasted the peanut butter and assured me the only thing it tasted like was peanut butter. In my head I thought there was no way I could be pregnant after only one time of trying, not to mention I was only about a week post expected ovulation. Nonetheless, the seed had been planted in my head and I began to think over the other odd symptoms I had been experiencing.
For example, I was craving lettuce wraps in the worst way around that time. I mean, don't get me wrong - lettuce wraps are delicious - but nothing I've ever just HAD to have. As the week carried on, I began noticing how incredibly cranky I was on top of feeling extremely fatigued. I had chalked it up to my upcoming menstrual cycle, even though those weren't my typical symptoms. However, the thought that I could be pregnant became mind consuming. It was too early to take a home pregnancy test, so I figured I could have some fun doing little DIY pregnancy tests in the meantime. Let me be the first to say, I really should have looked into these DIY tests before actually performing them, especially the bleach and urine test (this test can be extremely dangerous due to harmful gases released). My results from this test did, however, indicate a "positive" result. But, I couldn't really take it seriously, right?
Now for the hard part…the waiting. I've never been good at waiting, especially after my struggles with secondary infertility about 4 years ago. I decided to purchase a 24-pack of HCG test strips from Amazon so I could test my urine daily, guilt-free, until my expected period date. Day after day, the tests were coming up negative, but I wasn't getting too discouraged as it was still pretty early to be testing.
As morning peeked through on Valentine's Day, I shuffled to the bathroom to test my first pee of the day. I set the completed test strip down on the counter, came back to it a few minutes later..” Link in bio for the full story (📸: @mamabtothree) #firsttrimester #love #momblogger #infertility #genderreveal #pregnancyannouncement #genderrevealparty #dad #babybump #secondtrimester #14weeks #babyboy #babygirl #pregnant #babyreveal #kids #parenting #thirdtrimester #pregnancystyle #itsaboy #itsagirl #baby #momtobe #maternityshoot #parents #pregnancy #mom #howtheyrevealed #motherhood #mother
