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.
