The First Trimester

So, I am 15 weeks and 1 day today and can only just bring myself to write a little update on how the first trimester has been.

From 2-4 weeks it was lovely. Didn't feel any different apart from waking up at 3am for a bowl of cereal! Unfortunately, it has been downhill since then.
I've been struggling with morning sickness and nausea, headaches, loss of appetite, mega (and I mean almost crying mega) sore breasts and lower back pain. Not to mention the crazy emotional roller coaster I have been on... Hormones are wonderful!
I couldn't feed the cat as the smell of her food would make me sick. I couldn't step foot into our spare room as there was just this... smell which I can't describe, but it would make me feel instantly sick and I would have to run to the bathroom. Scrolling through my phone or laptop would give me motion sickness. And certain rooms at school would make me heave.
I did buy an air freshener to put in our spare room which only made the smell worse! Having 'superhuman' smelling powers is not for me!
For the past three weeks I've had a non-stop cough, coughing through the day and in my sleep, which would then wake me up. After having the cough for two weeks, I was given some anti-biotics to take. Unfortunately, being as I am so impatient, I went back to the doctors the following week to be given an inhaler and to be signed off for a week with a chest infection. To say that I have been utterly exhausted is an understatement.

With all this going on, it's a wonder I have even survived the past two terms at school. Observations, SIA visits, work scrutiny, induction meetings to new parents, new starter visits, trying to organise an art activity for the transition week - amongst trying to keep the house nice and clean... it has been hard work.

This is a bit of a 'moany' post and I know that everyone is different. I just hope that the second trimester brings a more happier time for me (and my poor other half).
