The first trimester is a whole world of things changing. However, no matter how many books you read about your pregnancy the first trimester will teach you things that no book can ever teach you.
How two lines can really make you feel
Those little blue lines are the start of a whole new chapter.
How scared you can feel
Pregnancy is exciting but you’ll be surprised at how frightened and terrified those little blue lines will make you feel.
The power that comes with it
For a least a couple of seconds you are the only one who knows that there is a new life on the way.
Your ability to lie
If you don’t want to tell anyone until the 12 week mark, you will become surprised at how well you can lie to people.
Just how sick you can feel
Seriously, how can one tiny little person make you feel so ill? Morning sickness is not just restricted to the mornings either... 
Just how sensitive your nose is
Certain smells will become almost unbearable. So much so, that you may actually get sick at the slightest whiff.
Certain combinations of food can taste good
Food cravings can find you lusting after the strangest combinations ever. Pickles and ice cream anyone?
What exhaustion really feels like
You have never felt this tired before, even when you were younger and managed to stay out all weekend on two hours of sleep. Right now your whole body just wants to sleep.
What your boobs are really for
Their size and tenderness are a clear indication that they are preparing for their job.
What life is like without caffeine  
No more coffee breaks, it’s tough but manageable.
All about your crazy hormones
You’ll discover that you can feel happy, sad and angry all at the same time.
Frequant toilet trips
Never have you visited the toilet so often in your life.
How people talk to you
People change when you’re pregnant talking to you in a low, soft tone. Are they araid they’ll hurt the baby’s ears?
How you look at the world
The world becomes a whole different place when you find out you are bringing another life into it.
How dangerous food can be
Say goodbye to your favourite soft cheese snack and your dippy egg too.
