Hi everyone, so sorry I've been MIA for the past two months. I really wasn't feeling very well and I don't think that I would have been able to write anything very interesting. Unless of course you are interested in nausea, morning sickness, heartburn, headaches, excessive peeing and an overall felling of blah. When people ask me how I'm feeling now I usually respond with, I have more good days than bad now. I am so grateful that I wasn't deathly ill like with my first pregnancy that I feel bad even sometimes complaining with this one. So far this pregnancy has been totally different since the very beginning. I have been extremely tired this time way more than the first go around. I could literally sleep all the time, which isn't very feasible with a three year old. I've had heartburn almost since day one with this one and I can not stop peeing. It's out of control peeing, like 5-6 times a night type of situation. I'm already super uncomfortable and I'm only 18 weeks pregnant. I have back and pelvic pain already which i don't remember feeling until much much later last time. I'm carrying different, I'm showing sooner and I'm not gaining much weight even though I feel like a giant whale. Eating with this pregnancy has been a total issue also, mainly due to the extreme heartburn. But if I don't eat soon enough in the morning or if I eat too much or too little or not often enough I feel sick and nauseous. It's like a science that I just haven't figured out 18 weeks in. And pretty much anything I eat gives me extreme heartburn. My doctor gave me medication for it, which does help but doesn't eliminate. Everyone including my doctor tells me that eating every couple hours at least a little snack is the best cure over any medicine but that is a lot harder than it sounds. I can barely think of things to eat for the 3 basic meals of the day let alone every couple of hours. And I'm pretty sure she wouldn't be pleased to know about my recent fudge and dill pickle chips obsession. I don't think those are the kind of snacks she had in mind when she said to eat something every two hours or so. I'm guessing those two snacks might also help with the weight gain that up until now has been pretty slow. I am actually at the exact same weight I started at because while I was sick I lost 10 pounds but I have since gained it back. I have a feeling at my December 30th appointment, after all the homemade Christmas candy my grandma will have spread out over the holiday, that I will have gained an unhealthy amount of weight. We shall see.
So, that pretty much catches you up on where I am right now. I haven't taken any pictures of my bump yet so I will do that and post them soon per some of your requests. :) I thougtht I would just include some random pictures from the last two months to catch you up. Happy Hump Day!
