good morning starshine, the earth says hello!
well. here it is. we're going to have a baby! i have been trying to figure out the perfect way to post this for the last....well....it's been a while. since becoming pregnant i feel like a thought that is commonly in my head is 'i just hate everything'. and i don't mean it in a rude way, but smells, foods, drinks, even the sight of my blog just made me sick. but i am in my 18th week and starting to even out on the hormone level thing.
things to note from the previous weeks:
i never threw up.
i do gag. a lot.
i hated everything that i had already had. (does this make sense? sounds horrible, right? well you are right. if i had eaten pizza...never again. mcdonalds? puke. orange juice? how dare you even offer it.)
i was so tired i really didn't know it was humanly possible. my life consisted of when i could go back to bed. or even just close my eyes in a long blink.
i'm really thirsty in the morning.
i get up to pee once every night ( i feel like moms all over the world are laughing an evil just-you-wait laugh. i know. i've heard it gets worse.)
if i want something. i want it. hence the 8 consecutive mini-powdered doughnuts i ate.
i am super thankful to not have the taste for coffee or pop! i was worried. but baby doesn't want it.
i also didn't have a sweet tooth until a week or two ago. don't worry. it's back.
my jeans don't fit. but i'm not big enough to get maternity jeans. i wear sweats.
i'm already hotter than i used to be. just wait till june, anna.
my stomach sticks out a little. but only enough for people to think i've gained holiday weight.
my body is also changing in ways i am not complaining about. ehhem.
my stomach has calmed down. it always used to gurgle.
i don't eat large meals. but i eat about 8 times a day. or at least want to.
we aren't finding out the sex.
which means we also aren't telling the name.
but don't get too worked up, we don't have a boys name set yet.
thanks for checking back here. i'm going to be better. i promise. especially since i don't hate everything as much anymore.
