16 Weeks

16 Weeks

20140416-190643.jpg

This might have been the longest I’ve gone without posting. I was doing to do another Day in the Life, but I haven’t found a good day yet. Maybe next week.

Today was my 16 week checkup that I was late for since I had to clean snow off my car (wtf?). So far, I’ve lost five pounds and gained it back again. Everything looks good. They took my blood to test for spina bifida. It hurt! Usually it doesn’t hurt when they take my blood. I don’t know if it was the nurse or I’m extra sensitive today, but it wasn’t pleasant.

My tummy has definitely gotten bigger and most of my clothes no longer fit. The nausea and fatigue have eased up, whoot! I can make it through a whole day without a nap, but I’m still going to bed early and falling asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow. Gas is still a problem, but gas has always been a problem for me, not being able to burp.

I finally got my appetite back, though I still don’t want anything to do with dried cranberries and sweets still aren’t as appealing as they were pre-pregnancy. I’m loving cheeseburgers  with ketchup, lots of ketchup, though I’m trying to limit my burger intake to about twice a month, and peanut butter and jelly. Salad also, but not my usual salads. I seem to have regressed to my childhood when carrots, croutons and creamy dressing were my thing. Don’t worry, I put greens, beans and other healthy stuff on there too.

Sunday was a terrible day. Something bad happened to one of my friends and I was a mess. My friend is OK physically, been trying to give her emotional support, though it’s not exactly my forte. Hope I helped a little. I don’t want friends to hurt :( Life aint fair sometimes.

  1. So sorry about your friend Lissy – you’re a good friend to try to be there for her.

    Glad that you have moved to the next phase of pregnancy and have a little relief in the nausea/sleepy department.

  2. Congratulations!

    The physical effects usually subside after the first trimester, which is always a good thing. I didn’t have much nausea or anything during my first trimesters with my children but I had really weird food cravings. Things I generally didn’t like were things I happened to like when I was pregnant. Then after the pregnancy there were things I’d always liked that I stopped liking. It’s crazy how our bodies change after babies.

  3. Yay!! Congrats for making it to 16 weeks! It should totally get better from here on out. Glad that you gained back the weight and hopefully you’ll gain steadily and what’s right for your little bun in the oven.
    Its always tough and rough when there’s a friend in need, especially if you’re witnessing them go through something that is undeserving, I hope they’ll find comfort in your support! Hang in there!

  4. *hugs* you are definitely the bestest friend.
    Thank you for being there for me. Was definitely the hardest
    time of my life ♥♥
