Hi Everyone! Happy Thursday!
I'm 8 weeks pregnant today. Surreal. I pretty much look like I've been eating too much, not pregnant, but none of my regular clothes are fitting and my belly is so bloated already. Need to get out my boxes of maternity clothes. Having 90% of what's in my closet unwearable because it doesn't fit is a serious bummer. I'm going to need to get some stuff for summer, too...all my maternity clothes are winter and that's just not going to cut it. We are trying to pay cash for some big things right now so money is super tight around here, but I'm sure I can make a couple pairs of shorts work. I need to do some other things to feel less frumpy, too, because it's affecting my mood...maybe a mani/pedi or some such this weekend is in order (although I've been trying to wait until the second trimester to use nail polish...I know everybody says it's perfectly safe but I'm weird and superstitious about a lot of things with pregnancy).
In other pregnancy news:
- Gosh, I was sick yesterday. And exhausted. That's really all that's been going on, and it comes and goes a bit. But yesterday I felt terrible all day (and threw up twice), the kids were whiny, my husband was tired, I started to get into a really bad funk, like, my life is over, I am just exhausted and sick all the time, this is how it's going to be forever. It's so hard to trust that this is only temporary, even though logically I know that it is. And my husband doesn't want to hear it...he is so sweet and loving in other ways, but with this, his general attitude is, "You did this to yourself." Sigh. Today has been better...sick but not so bad, the kids are mellower, etc...
- I'm really sensitive to smell...especially, we have these garbage bags that have Febreeze on them...I hate Febreeze always but right now I can't even be in the same room with those garbage bags...even 2 rooms over is pushing it. Instant nausea. I banned them from the kitchen, my husband wants to keep using them in the diaper pail but I may have to nix them there too...we'll see...
- Had a horrible headache this past week. Only Tylenol would allow me to sleep (trying soooooo hard not to take anything...)
- Not thinking too much about the outcome of this pregnancy...just kind of going about my business until my next ultrasound on Tuesday. If I think about it (it being that fact that something could go wrong) I'll go crazy
And, with that the kids are waking up from their nap and I've got to go.
Hope everyone's having a fabulous day!
