This has been my phrase to everyone who asks how I’m doing. I want to be honest, but I don’t want to be a complainer because I know how blessed we are to be carrying 3 babies at once! My heart was so heavy one time for children. I wanted to feel morning sickness soooo bad. So, I am thankful that I am feeling this way, even though it is hard to deal with at times.
I have been seeing green for a good while now, and I’m so ready for it to be over. The good news is I don’t actually throw up, I just feel like I’m going to all day. And, I have a terrible gag reflex, so I’m constantly gagging & hoping nothing comes up! hah! However, today was the first day that I have actually felt normal for the first time in a while, and I will tell you that it was a BIG relief! I hope this keeps up… I’ll be 12 weeks on Thursday! Yahoo! I welcome the 2nd Trimester with open arms!!!
Today I had to change my doctor’s appointment because Chris had a meeting conflict. But, I’m glad that they could work me in later the same day … February 10th. Instead of being at 10 am, it will be at 1:30pm…so the updates will be coming later in the day next Tuesday
Since a lot hasn’t been going on… I will do one of my surveys… Go here to read/ compare notes with my pregnancy w/ Harper. It is quite interesting… at least it is to me
How far along? 11 Weeks 5 days (same day I did this survey with Harper… weird)
Total weight gain/loss: A BIG FAT ZERO…. good grief, I don’t know how I’m supposed to gain weight! It is harder than it seems.
Maternity clothes? All I can wear. I still wear some shirts that aren’t maternity, but they make we look fat and weird, so I like the flow-y shirts better.
Stretch marks? Just from last time. However, I know I’m doomed…
Sleep:I love my sleep and need it desperately. However, I must be cold to sleep. It helps that it has been super cold outside, and I sleep with the overhead fan on… brrrrr…. I LOVE it!
Best moment this week: Not feeling nauseous today! Having a whole day to myself on Monday – a friend took Harper, and I got to sleep and rest. It was great!
Movement: I think I’ve felt them a few times, but it isn’t completely distinguishable yet.
Food cravings: Today I wanted Quiznos, and I ate the whole sandwich (Turkey Bacon Guacamole)!! This is the most food I’ve eaten in a whole sitting in a while! I was proud!
Gender prediction: I think there is a girl in there somewhere… if not two! I feel very much like I did with Harper, but we’ll see. It could be that it’s because there are 3 in there.
Labor Signs: thank goodness no
Belly Button in or out? still in, but a very round tummy.
Wedding rings on or off? Still on!
Weekly Wisdom: eat when you are hungry.
Milestones: Feeling better today!
And last but not least… a belly picture from this past Sunday… two angles…
