The first trimester is over. Thank God! My wife has been consistently exhausted for 13 weeks. She’s starting to get her energy back now, which is very exciting. Every night for the past three months she’s been falling asleep on the couch at 7 or 8. We have a bunch of projects we want to get done and it’s been super hard getting her motivated to do anything. It’s not her fault and she can be as tired as she wants, but it is exciting for me that she’s going to be a little more active. I’ve heard that the second trimester is the easiest, the woman isn’t huge yet and a lot of the symptoms from the first trimester are gone.
I hope that’s true, and I’m planning on getting the house as prepped as possible while I have my wife operating at her normal capacity. We still have to put trim around a few doors, put some wainscoting up in the baby’s room, replace some flooring, buy a ton of baby stuff, rearrange furniture, build the crib, etc. The list goes on and on. We have our next doctor’s appointment today, and it just seems like this pregnancy is flying by. A third of the pregnancy is gone just like that. Craziness!
