I have a baby in my belly and it’s 12 weeks old. That’s three whole months. That’s 1/3 of my pregnancy over with already. Is it weird that I’m kinda sad? I’ll answer that for you: yes!! Who gets sad about morning sickness and constant tiredness? Only weirdos.
I found out on week 5 that I was expecting. Total joy. By week 6 the nausea had started. Week 7, the smell and sight of food made me reach for a bucket. By week 8 I realized that doing much of anything was going to be very challenging and it has been.
On average I’ve been throwing up 3 times a day. Most of that is when I wake up so it’s just stomach bile – not so bad. I take a nausea pill that usually makes me feel a bit better. Sleeping makes me feel better too. I love sleep! I’ve been getting an average of 16 restful hours a day.
The only craving I’ve gotten so far, if you can even call it that, is for cheese. I’ve never been a big cheese fan but since being pregnant I want it all the time, on everything. If I could eat queso dip from tijuana flats every single day, I would; but since I can’t, I live off of goldfish. Goldfish, ginger ale and popsicles, especially coconut or pineapple ones.
