My wife and I are 13 weeks into our first pregnancy. For this entire first trimester, it has been a lot of nausea and even more fatigue. As a husband, I have tried to make it as comfortable as possible for her. As of now, she is working full time. So, I can’t imagine how difficult it is to get up and go to work every morning while making a baby! Crazy. So, when she comes home every day, I’m trying to find out if she is more tired or more hungry. If it’s tiredness, then go get your nap. If it’s hunger, then I try to have dinner planned. I’m working full time as well, but my hours can be more flexible, so I use that to our advantage.
Hopefully, the extreme tiredness and nausea will end soon. She has show a few signs of it breaking, but we’re not out of the woods yet. We’ve heard that the second trimester can bring some relief, and it can’t come soon enough. Last week, we went out on a fun date. I took her to Buca di Beppo’s for some yummy Italian, and then we went to the Cincinnati symphony. However, with 3 acts in the evening, she could only make it through two. So, it was off to home and the comfort of sleep.
Even with the difficulties that pregnancy has brought, the amount of joy has far outweighed the negatives. We are thrilled at the opportunity to be parents! Plus, we finally get to use some of these baby blankets for ourselves!
