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!
Enclosed is the weekly picture.
