Yes-it’s true! And though my sisters already have known, it’s time to share with everybody!!!! Really excited to keep you guys up to date on all the crazy happenings over here. I think this is why my posting has been really sporadic lately: I’ve been super tired, out of it, and having trouble focusing on things I usually love so the blog has been put on hold. Sorry about that 😉
The baby is already 14.5 weeks and is the size of a navel orange right now! Growing so fast! I was feeling pretty nauseous and was a little sick up until our trip. Thank goodness that all went well! Now I’m feeling pretty good, just tired.
Soooo….to catch y’all up to speed here are 10 crazy things we’ve been putting up with lately:
1.) pregnancy brain is for sure real….shortly after we found out Adam caught me just before I put a potato wrapped in tin foil in the microwave. Yikes! (That potato was later smothered in Italian dressing and DELICIOUS!) I’ve had tons of airhead moments. I also brought cookies from Amsterdam to work and by lunch, coworkers were telling me my cookies were really good. I was like “I didn’t bring any cookies…what are they talking about?” I totally forgot I brought anything.
2.) I have had the hardest time brushing my teeth, up until about now actually. I couldn’t do it for awhile because it totally gagged me. And flossing in the back is still a no go. Now I’m terrified for cavities!!
3.) I need to eat pre-meals. If we go out for breakfast I’ll probably eat a bowl of cereal first. And before Adam gets home I need a great big snack or 1st dinner. Sometimes I really go overboard though and spoil my 2nd dinner (with Adam).
4.) I also couldn’t stand things touching my neck, especially when I was having morning sickness. It was like my gag-o-meter. If I put my hand on my neck and gagged I needed to be really careful. It would feel like I had on a tight turtleneck but nothing was there. Even my hair brushing my neck made me want to lose it!
5.) I’ve been super tired! I feel like I need a nap as soon as the alarm goes off in the morning. And all I want to do when I get home from work is sit on the couch (exciting right?!?)
6.) I’ve always been a little sensitive. I mean I bawled when I saw “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.” But I think I’m a little extra sensitive lately. I’ve been crying during tv shows, holding it in for some commercials, and totally lost it when I didn’t get a snow day.
7.) I haven’t been able to concentrate on reading. I’m gonna keep trying though because I really miss it!
8.) My nose is working overtime! Adam’s coffee in the morning smells horrible to me! And our apartment always has a weird smell when I get home. Which I never noticed before-it’ll be kinda nice when that calms back down.
9.) The first 3 months was like a perpetual hangover and all I felt like I could stomach was fries, burgers, and chips.
10.) This baby is really drying me out! I feel like my face is like a reptile! I put lotion on so many times and my skin just sucks it right up! I can’t get enough liquids.
This has been pretty mind consuming for us over here so ill keep you posted on our progress 🙂 any questions, comments or tips are greatly appreciated!
