8 weeks and I’m gonna hurl

8 weeks today-3-4 weeks until I go public depending on which comes first 12 weeks or ultrasound. I really thought they would be all over me this pregnancy but at least for the first 12 weeks they are being ultra lax.

Anyways-oy the nausea today, today it’s bad, just oy! It was bad at 6am when I took Oliver out for a pee, then wanned for a while and now has come back full force. I just keep sipping cold water with an ounce or two of juice in it for flavour. ( I don’t like plain old water has to have something in it, lemon, lime, a touch of juice whatever)

I also kinda want a nap, but it feels so wrong since I just got ouf of bed 4.5 hours ago. However, the cat and dog are napping next to me and they don’t seem to think there is anything wrong with that at all. I guess I need to learn by example. It’s funny because Oliver has his butt against me and his head against the cat’s butt haha. This is the ONLY time Jaspurr let’s Oliver touch him. Normally they are sworn enemies.

Reading Death by Supermarket is making me want to go into my cupboards and throw out anything that isen’t directly cultivated from the ground or a tree, or a unaltered animal product like organic eggs and  meat and wild unfarmed fish, and throw the rest out cause it’s crap for me and likely leading my slugish metabolism. In an ideal world I would never ever eat anything altered in lab or packaged in a large scale factory. I try hard, but I can do better and I am going to work harder at it, for the sake of my health and that my unborn child who deserves maximum brain power πŸ™‚ We are growing our own tomatoes, rubarb and herbs this year in the garden and we plan on expanding it a little every year to produce a bunch of own produce during the warm months, we will still have to rely on grocery store produce during the cold months, we buy local as much as we can now cause we know local standard for food handling are high.

I tried on my brand new funky (lime green with brown, blue and pink various sized dots) Nursing Under Cover sling today with a teddy bear just to see if it still fits, it does :). I try not to be too hopefull this baby will survive another 30 weeks and make it home, just to spare my poor heart if he/she dosen’t make it, but I can’t help it. I have all this gorgous baby stuff just stored in Rubbermaid bins in the basement and I want to have a baby to wear and nurse more then anything in the whole entire world. I will not however set up a nursery until baby is home, I will just get what I need for the first while ready and beside’s the baby would be sleeping in a bassinetter/co-sleeper for like the first year anyhow, so the nursery would just be a fun space to store baby’s stuff, I don’t need that right away. I can’t deal with taking it all apart again.

Ok off to read the rest of my blog updates and perhaps nap. πŸ™‚

β€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” β€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. Of course πŸ™‚

  2. I can certainly understand you not wanting to set up the nursery yet and such. I think I would have the same fears about everything if I were in your situation.
    I can’t stand drinking water by itself either.
