3 and a half months…

I have a good reason for not blogging in over two weeks.  My life is now consumed with vomiting.  I find myself asking, “Why did I want to experience morning sickness so badly??”  I have ONE of my anti-nausea pills left, and that is a problem.  Especially since I am pretty sure I am going to have to take more than one a day from here on out. I am in the last week that is supposed to be the craziest (weeks 9-14, your hormones are at their most insane time which typically causes more sickness), so that’s at least promising.  My sister-in-law called me the other day after her doctor’s appointment where she and my brother heard the heartbeat for the first time, and I couldn’t even stay on the phone.  I had to hang up so that I could throw up.  FYI: do NOT EVER talk to me about ANYTHING ginger EVER AGAIN; don’t even mention that word to me……

Onto business…….

How Far Along? 14 weeks and 4 days.

Total weight gain
: Since I can literally only hold down about 40% of my food, I’m pretty sure I am still losing weight.

Cravings: Peanut Butter.  And Carrots.  And potato chips with French Onion dip.  None together, by the by.  The Peanut Butter isn’t so much a craving, but it seems to settle my stomach.

Maternity clothes? Not yet, but my stomach is definitely a-growin’.  I’m pretty sure that I’ll have to make a trip to Appleton soon.  Why, you ask?  Because this town doesn’t sell maternity clothes.  Why do I live here again??

Sleep: I am now sleeping on the couch every night.  It’s the only place I can actually get sleep comfortably.  Soon, the couch will be in the bedroom which will make the situation a lot nicer for me.  I hate sleeping in a different room than my husband.

Best moment this week: Feeling okay after vomiting.  I know, I have high standards.

Movement: I don’t…..Think so…?

Labor Signs: Nope, nope, nope.

Belly Button in or out? Still definitely in.

What I miss: Regular pants.

What I am looking forward to: Our next doctor’s appointment – we might get another ultrasound picture; maybe.  Our doctor doesn’t do a lot of those.

Weekly Wisdom:  Take a deep breath through your mouth BEFORE you throw up.  That way you won’t have the amazing unpleasant experience of feeling your stomach acid burn the inside of your nostrils as the vomit comes out your nose……Too much?

Milestones:  That beautiful little heartbeat!

Enclosed is the weekly picture.

P.S.  Look at that belly pop in the first picture! 🙂

3 Months…Wowza…

Okay, so I know that I haven’t blogged in two weeks, BUT, I am pregnant and can do what I want.  That being said, I don’t want to feel sick anymore.  Do you think it’s that easy?  That if I just say the words out loud it will stop?  Yeah, me either.  I did get a prescription for Zofran (a non-refillable one; the doctor apparently had something against me), and that has helped.  I try to take it only on the days that I work so that I can make it last longer, but lately I have had to take it every day just to make it through.  When is the fun part of pregnancy?  I am only half kidding.  Being pregnant is one of the greatest things in the world because I get to take part in growing a wee one and letting it into the world – EXCITING.  I just wish the side effects would stop.  I want to be one of those women that says, “I loved being pregnant!”  Any who, enough with that and on with the survey – I have to work soon.

How Far Along? 12 weeks and 2 days.

Total weight gain
: Since I got pregnant, I have lost 11 pounds, and then gained two back: a total weight loss of 9 pounds! 🙂

Cravings: OLD DUTCH DILL PICKLE POTATO CHIPS

Maternity clothes? Not yet, but my stomach is definitely a-growin’.  I’m pretty sure that I’ll have to make a trip to Appleton soon.  Why, you ask?  Because along with this town not selling any Old Dutch Dill Pickle potato chips, they also don’t sell maternity clothes.  Why do I live here again??

Sleep: I am in bed for a really long time, but it’s getting harder to sleep.  I’m very uncomfortable and constantly moving from side to side.

Best moment this week: Hearing the heartbeat on Thursday.  It was so amazing!

Movement: Yes, but only in terms of gas.  I know, I know: ew.

Labor Signs: Nope, nope, nope.

Belly Button in or out? Still definitely in.

What I miss: Bras that fit and jeans.

What I am looking forward to: Feeling our little baby move – I can NOT WAIT for that!!

Weekly Wisdom:  If you feel nauseous all the time, do not be afraid to ask your doctor for safe, medicinal help, like zofran.  It doesn’t work on everyone, but it’s worth a shot if nothing else works.

Milestones:  That beautiful little heartbeat!
