Having a loss and unexplained infertility still makes it hard for me to believe that this is really happening still and that everything is still OK. I can’t believe that I’m 2 days away from being 15 weeks pregnant but when I forget I get a reminder that I am especially the past few days. Morning sickness is in full force – worse than ever before with vomiting and all! Joy oh joy but I’ll take it! MH reminds me as he is comforting me that I’d rather feel this way than not be pregnant. It’s true but it still really sucks. I’m wearing sea bands as I type this in hopes that they will help. I might break down and take the Zofran even though Doctor Dad has encouraged me not to take it – MH and I are heading up to Vancouver for a long weekend and I want to enjoy our time there. I’ve been literally horizontal for the past two days because it helps me a lot. My body aches from laying down for so many hours in a row so today I’m sitting in a chair in hopes that I can manage to keep away the nausea and dry heaving that seems to hit me every hour at least two or three times. Ugh! Again, I’m happy to have these signs that Roo is doing well inside me but it still sucks.
My brother and sister-in-law had a baby girl yesterday morning. You might recall that I’ve struggled with them especially her since before they got married. That struggle continues (she said some bitchy comments to me when I told them that I was pregnant) but I’m very happy about the birth of their little girl. The baby is HUGE and has the cutest chubby cheeks! She was six days late!
Roo is the size of a lime (edit: ummm…that’s a YELLOW lemon down there not a green lime…pregnancy brain?!):
Food aversions: Pretty much everything; I’m subsisting on apple sauce and plain yogurt with grape nuts and fruit
Food cravings: Nothing – just wanting to be able to eat anything and keep it down
Mama’s physical changes: Bump is growing! At least one of you has asked for a bump photo and I promise I’ll start to take photos soon
Next milestone: OB appointment on February 21 (week 16); I can’t wait to feel Roo move inside me!
