the first trimester

Yep, you read that title right. I'm currently on my first trimester, a pregnancy that I never thought would ever happen. After all, I've never been a fan of babies and my patience for them is not the longest in the world.

My son is also now 14. 

Don't get me wrong.

I love my son. I would die for him. I would do anything for him. It's just that babies are not my strongest suit. Never has been, don't think it ever will be.

The first month, I felt nothing.

The second month, I knew that there was something. I knew my body and I knew that something was off. I thought I could handle this pregnancy with grace because my first one was pretty smooth sailing (or that's just what my mind wants me to remember.)

However, this pregnancy has thrown me off my game.

The 2nd month saw me becoming VERY LAZY. I mean, really lazy. I would have days that I just want to stay in bed and do nothing. I have days where I'd prep to shoot a video and my mind just won't work. I have days where I'm getting ready to go out and then I'd get hit with a bout of nausea and laziness and I can't force myself to go out.

The good thing was I kept drinking ANMUM. I'd drink 3 big glasses a day without any problem at all. I also took my Folic Acid seriously and drank my vitamins. I've also been able to sleep before 12 midnight though for the 6th - 8th week, I would constantly wake up to pee. This part was a nightmare. 

This was also the month that a baby bump appeared out of nowhere. Maybe because I'm fat so it showed more easily? Maybe because we didn't keep it a secret? I don't really know but I already have a small baby bump. 

The onset of the third month was very challenging. I experienced a couple of days where I didn't want to eat anything even though I was very hungry. I also had days where I didn't like how my Mom smelled. I had days where I was just irrationally angry at certain people. It was exhausting.

Today marks the 10th week and for the first time in a long while, I feel a little bit like myself. Hopefully this continues so that I can start delivering on projects that have been pending on my end.

Am I excited? Of course. I am also apprehensive because I am a little old now. I hope you all pray for the safe delivery of my baby and my baby's health, that the baby may be born normal, healthy, and strong.

God threw my life a plot twist and I can't wait to see how this twist plays out.
