Weird Dreams

Pregnancy has given me insomnia and weird dreams to boot. This was one of my favorite:

I had a dream that I rode my bicycle — what bike? I don't own one — to the McDonald's drive through for a vanilla soft serve cone. They ran out of ice cream and I rode back disappointed.

To say the least, I wanted a vanilla cone when I woke up. Damn, hormones.

First Trimester Pregnancy Symptoms

My first trimester was miserable, but not so much because of the actual pregnancy. I got sick while we were in Disney World and had a miserable sinus infection and bronchitis for a solid six weeks, from about week six to 12. I had a minor relapse a few weeks later, for only a few days, too. On top of all the other pregnancy symptoms, I was pretty miserable. So grateful that is now well behind me!

First trimester symptoms: fatigue, insomnia, nausea, food aversions, food cravings, tender breasts, bloating, gassy

Cravings: Anything protein — meat, beans, nuts, dairy — spicy foods, carbs and cold things (drinks, sorbet, soft serve.) I thought I would crave more fruits and vegetables since I loved, loved, loved eatings salads before I was pregnant but the thought of most fruits and veggies just totally turned me off. I still ate them but didn't crave them like I anticipated I would. I thought eating well would be a breeze — not the case for me, at least not this far in the pregnancy!

I also drank water like a fish before I was pregnant, but drinking water when I was pregnant made me feel bloated and ill. When it didn't make me feel ill, I still had a difficult time drinking enough to really stay hydrated — another thing I was really surprised by and thought would be no problem!

Pregnancy News Reactions

We obviously had a lot of positive feedback upon breaking the news that we're expecting a baby. A few ranked up there as my favorites.

Among them, Kathleen and Brandon's reaction after I texted them the good news:

This straight up made me laugh out loud.

My other fav was when Nathaniel was on the phone with his abuela. He told her I was due in August, and she said, "Oh, of next year?" I literally could not stop laughing. Yes, Abuela, a two-year pregnancy — what?!

Baby Cruz

Art I made shortly after finding out I was pregnant.

We are over the moon excited to announce baby GIRL Cruz is coming mid-August 2014!

We had our first ultrasound today and got to see our little love! Healthy at 11 oz. at 19 weeks, measuring 4 days ahead! Can't wait to meet her!

My sweet — probably dramatic — girl with her hand on her forehead.
