Today I am officially 14 weeks and can say I made it out of the first trimester with only limited disaster. Okay, so there wasn't really any disaster, per say, but I did keep track of some of the more interesting things that happened in the last 7 weeks. It's so crazy!
2/14/2011 2AM - laying awake with a rumbling tummy. Really, am I really this hungry! I got up and had a few slices of cheese, walnuts, and a glass of milk.
2/16/2011 9AM - I love my one cup of coffee in the morning. It's my thing. I don't need it, I just like it a whole lot. After the last 4 days of trying to forcefully drink my coffee, I've come to the conclusion that it tastes like crap!
2/17/2011 - 6 weeks today and I feel queasy all day!
2/19/2011 3PM - Grocery shopping I have the sudden urge to eat Lay's Sour Cream and Onion chips while shopping in the store. I can't stop thinking about them in my cart.
2/22/2011 7:20AM - Almost lost my breakfast. This was the first time I've actually really felt the urge to throw up. Oi.
3/5/2011 4:47AM - Hungry again. It's almost 5 AM. What the heck?! Carrot sticks, peanut butter and jelly toast and a big glass of milk. My Husband thinks this is a strange combination. I thought it was lovely!
3/16/2011 7ish PM - Threw up my dinner. Awesome. Did you know I can puke so hard that it will hit the toilet water and splash back up on my face? That's a neat trick isn't it.
The first trimester was, you know, normal, in terms of pregnancy. Constant low grade nausea, EXTREME fatigue, uh, slow bowels, weird food aversions, bathroom breaks in the middle of the night. This past week or so my energy level seems to be picking up and the nausea is, well, less. Still there, but not nagging me all day.
Raw meat is still difficult for me, which it has NEVER been. I have to just look away from it sometimes, regain composure and then complete the task. Although, the other night Marty had to cook the ground beef until it wasn't raw anymore. I just couldn't look at it without gagging. So weird.
Anyway, moving on. Time for progress of the belly growth. We began taking pictures at 7 weeks. Here is the first trimester.
There is definitely something going on in there.
