Taboo- A Fairly Easy First Trimester

I’ve been grateful enough to have a fairly easy first trimester. I am exhausted all the time and peeing every 5 minutes, but besides that, everything has been fine. No sickness, nausea, food aversions, spotting or anything. I feel like because people find community when they are going through hardships, everything I read has been bad. And it makes me anxious because then I think… am I okay? Is the baby okay? And I feel like it’s hard to share how good things are going because it makes me feel insensitive. Anyone can relate?

10000% I feel the same. So lucky to feel good, but also a little worried at times because everything I see or hear is pretty negative and it makes me feel like something is wrong with me because I am enjoying it lol

@Michelle I feel like when people ask me how I’m feeling I almost have to find something that’s wrong or put so much emphasis on how tired I am. I am glad to know I’m not alone

Yes! My first trimester was not easy, but I always felt better about the baby when I started throwing up. Like, “we’re still doing this thing.“ 🤣 but please don’t feel guilty about having a good first trimester. You’ve got a long way to go and I can always get worse. Just be grateful and get done as much as you can!

@Rosilyn omg same hahaha when I'm asked how I'm feeling, I usually say "good!" And there's like a pause or oh sorry I guess I was supposed to complain?

@Julia ❤️❤️❤️ beautiful girls!

Not everyone has a hard pregnancy. Just be grateful and take it as it comes 🤗

I can 100% relate! I had little to no symptoms, my boobs were sore if I moved in a certain way and I was tired, but no morning sickness, nausea etc. and it could be a little hard when people would tell me I was lucky and that I should enjoy it because inside the anxiety of something being wrong was eating away. I breathed the biggest sigh of relief during that 12-week scan when baby appeared on the screen! It’s easier to see myself as lucky that my first trimester was so easy now, but at the time it was so very hard!
