#Pregnancy : 1st Trimester Experience

First Trimester: 29 Dec 2019 - 26 March 2020

Alhamdulillah, my first trimester went like a breeze 😂 So merciful Allah is. We were quite worried initially as I had to juggle working at a new place and studying for my final semester. Plus, my mom had very horrible pregnancy experiences and people said it's genetic. Well, thank God it's not!

With the outbreak of COVID-19, I also got the chance to rest at home. Alhamdulillah, a silver lining for me. I noticed that I was tired a lot, especially in the evening. I'll fall asleep as early as 9pm and sometimes still woke up tired. Other symptoms include feeling bloated, acne and mood swings. Alhamdulillah, I don't experience any morning sickness or vomiting at all. 

So, how are things different for me now?

I quit my workout session completely, for the time being. I gave up netball 💔[all these before MCO], I had to stop using some of my favourite skincare products (separate post on that soon), I left office on time (which was rarely the case before) because I'm super tired but the one which impacted me the most was I had to stop ALL my lower back treatment. All of them! No more physiotherapy and I can't even use the Acustop patch on my back (which I use almost every day to alleviate my back pain from the slipped disc I had). But, I got myself a personal masseuse, thank you N for your help every single night 😂 

Oh and I tend to crave sweet things now 😋
By the end of my first trimester, I had not gained any significant weight although I ate as usual. Yeayy!

Supplement for the first trimester : Acid Folic and Duphaston

May Allah ease the rest of my pregnancy journey. InsyaAllah
