After having some issues early on, by Week 12 I was especially excited to finish the first trimester (and for my 13-week ultrasound) in hopes that it would bring some much needed peace of mind.
Fortunately, as the first trimester progressed my aversions slowly became less intense. While there were certainly some days (evenings) where nothing sounded palatable – my appetite returned to semi-normal for breakfast and lunch. By the end of the first trimester I was certainly having many more good days than bad days. Being able to run again also helped me to feel better. Everyone says that the second trimester is the “honeymoon” period of pregnancy because many of the first trimester symptoms start to subside and you still feel fairly normal. I sure hope that this is the case! Regardless, I know that it will all be worth it in the end.
Did you run while pregnant? What was your first trimester experience? Is it true that the second trimester gets easier?
