Recap: 1st trimester

Hi :) This weekend I turned 16 weeks pregnant, officially 4 months! I say it every week to my husband, but I cannot believe we've made it this far. I mean, I always, always had faith, but I am just so thankful everything is going so well given my history.
Here's my 1st trimester recap. I thought about doing it weekly, but that's too overwhelming for me! I am just happy to be out of the 1st trimester :)

1st trimester: Weeks 1-14

Total Weight Gain/Loss for 1st trimester: 5.4lbs Very happy with this; my goal was 5lbs.

Maternity Clothes for 1st trimester: Not really. I had a pair of maternity capris that I wore a few times, but only because they were super comfy. I wore a lot of long tank tops and cardigans. I feel like that will be my maternity staple :)

Gender: We find out on Saturday, June 16th at our Gender Reveal Party !!
Movement in the 1st trimester: Not yet!

Sleep: Not too bad, really. We did buy a new King Size mattress over Memorial Day weekend so that has helped tons!! I go to sleep around 10pm-11pm every night. I really need 7-8hrs of sleep.

What I miss: Nothing really. Weight gain is kind of getting to me so I miss trying to LOSE weight.

Cravings: Fruit, peanut butter, mexican food !!

Symptoms: dry gagging if I smell something that doesn't agree with me. Gagging if I brush my teeth too long (weird), thirsty all the time (results in peeing every 40min or so).

Best Moment in the 1st trimester: There were a lot of 'best moments'!! I'd say announcing to our family, making it week to week, hearing a strong heartbeat and seeing proper growth from appointment to appointment.

Here are some pics from the 1st trimester. no, I didn't do weekly, because I didn't want to beat myself up about it if I missed a week. Plus, I wasn't always camera ready :) I didn't really see any changes in the 1st trimester, but I can feel my body changing now.
