Hi everyone! I thought it might be nice to have a little space to talk amongst ourselves about being pregnant for the first time. Even though I'm a midwifery student and I know what is normal and what's not, every little symptom is new to me, and I want to talk about it! So I thought this could be a safe space to talk about all these "little pregnancy things" that we might be a little embarrassed to talk about in other spaces.
So, hi! I am wombjuice and this is my first pregnancy--I am 6 weeks and 1 day today! It was a surprise and though my fiance' and I were absolutely shocked at first, we are both happy now. He seems much more excited than me...it's been taking a little while for the shock to blow over for me. But I'm getting more and more excited as the days go on.
I was about 4 weeks and 5 days when I got that positive pregnancy test, and the only symptoms I had were exhaustion and peeing a lot. I thought I was home free! But two days ago, I started getting nauseous. At first, I thought it was from the antibiotics I'm taking for a hurt wisdom tooth, but now I realize it's the pregnancy. I get nauseous mostly in the evening!! It's way worse when I don't eat, but the thought of most foods is making me sick! Very confusing, lol.
Anyway, please introduce yourselves and let's chat about this first-time mama business!!
