How far along? 18 weeks, 4 days
Cravings: A long john donut – indulged this one, and no regrets. It was DELICIOUS.
Aversions: Vegetables, meat, um…I think I have more aversions than non-aversions. I have a helluva time eating anything that’s healthy.
Feeling? Okay. I’m surviving. I’m still taking my Unisom at night and Zofran as needed during the day, though I try to avoid the Zofran when the nausea is tolerable.
What I’m looking forward to: Walking through a local holiday lights display. C will love it! Hubster’s brother, sister-in-law and three girls will try to come visit and go with us!
What I miss: Wanting to eat, and being able to cook for my family with ease. It’s so hard to work with food when it looks and smells disgusting to you. I feel so guilty about not cooking decent meals every night like I used to.
What was the BEST part of last week? Finishing a 5k with a friend! It was a great time, and I’m so blessed to be able to finish the race with an awesome friend.
What was the WORST part of last week? Feeling sick a lot. I still need to nap every day, and I think it’s because HG just wears me out so much.
Milestones: It’s not really a milestone, but the upside to having HG plague me for longer this time is that I’m noticing changes in my body. Like…things are getting thinner. Baby Deuce must be living off of my fat reserves, and I’m sure not going to complain about that! It’s the only positive part of being this sick, and I’m going to take delight in it. I ordered some maternity t-shirts and had fun trying them on and noticing that everything except my baby belly is getting smaller.
