The people who claim that first trimester "isn't that bad" are either lying or simply did not experience what the vast majority of us do. That, or they're dudes who can't possibly know. Because for roughly 80 percent of pregnant women, the first trimester of pregnancy is marked by a delightful cocktail of dizziness, headache, fatigue, nausea, and vomiting. While those hormones are wreaking havoc on your physical person, they're also affecting your mental and emotional state. Is it any wonder, then, that people will get on your nerves? If you legit hate certain people in your first trimester, you're not just normal in my book, you're entitled.
Pregnancy, and specifically the first 12 weeks of it, makes me hate everyone. Seriously, I just feel like everything is the worst, and I want to crawl into a hole and not come out until second trimester. When I'm pregnant, I have consistent nausea throughout the day, and I vomit after every meal. That's not counting the dry-heaving, which is how I start every blessed morning. Sometimes it's all I can do just to lie the couch. Pregnancy turns me into a miserable pile of hormonal hot garbage, and yes, I probably hate your guts right now.
Maybe you think "hate" is a strong word, but if that's the case, I'm guessing you've never opened your car door to yak up your smoothie and been tut-tutted at by a stranger. Reasonable or not (and we all know that's not our first-trimester strong suit), I'm betting these people are on your pregnancy sh*t list:
