WARNING: This weekly post is meant only for readers who are actually interested to read about what goes on during my pregnancy. If you are yawning right at this point of my post, I suggest you come back tomorrow when my hormones have settled.
I have declared Wednesdays to be my Preggy Posting days, where I get to rant and rave about being pregnant again after 6 long years. I must admit, my mind seems to have blocked out memories of what it was like being pregnant with Nicky, and what i'm feeling now seems so new to me again! And of course, I am whining as much as I was in my first pregnancy. The only difference is, I have been trying to be more "kinder" to my hubby this time around.
Ok, so I'm on week 8! And just when I thought I was relieved of all forms of pregnancy symptoms -- BAM! I now get nausea attacks beginning 4pm till nighttime! By 4pm my tummy starts growling like crazy. Nothing seems to appease it. Yesterday I had a client meeting, and while in the car I was munching on some miniature breadsticks. Halfway through, I was sicker than ever. Visions of garlic pizza and cheese flooded my mind. Right at this time I texted my client to meet us at a Shakey's Pizza place. Ordering a large pizza (and shamelessly eating 4 slices out of the 8) certainly did the trick. By 6:30pm, I was nowhere near wanting to have dinner, but instead was craving for a tub of vanilla ice cream with coffee jelly and caramel syrup. I was at a point where I would actually start to puke if I didn't have that cup of ice cream! Luckily Allan was patient enough to go to the nearest convenience store for a pint of that particular ice cream flavor.
By 11pm, I am once again hungry. My mind is torn between cooking a meal or going to sleep with a glass of milk. I opt for the latter since I am lazy to cook by this time. Then begins my sleeping struggle. As soon as my head hits the pillow, my ordeal begins. My head starts to get whoozy and my tummy starts to lightly cramp. My mom says it's probably because I am tired during the day, but what pregnant woman isn't? I bet there are thousands of women out there right now that are on the 2nd month and who are going about their day as if it were any other. Or maybe not. Pregnancy just makes me all weird, I guess. I get tired, then weepy, then cranky, then hungry, then dizzy, then sleepy. Then I wake up and it starts all over again.
Oh well, such is the status of my pregnancy this week. I know it wasn't exactly the best read for you, but it certainly was the best way for me to vent! :-P
Till next Wednesday's Preggy Posting!
