Oh man! The good, the bad and the ugly.
I am REALLY nauseous this weekend, at 8 weeks it has hit it’s peak, or maybe not, but I am really sick. Oh I hope I don’t get more nauseous then this. I woke up at 5am and had cheese and orange juice cause that is the only thing in the fridge I wanted to eat. I have VERY specific yes foods and unfortunatly most things are no foods, which between that and the nausea, soar chest and exaustion is making life difficult for Dave haha. Oh man I hope this baby get’s here healthy fat and pink because I am starting to remember that pregnancy is hard work, oy! You start off sick, feel terrible for 3 months, then you feel good for 3 months to prepare you for what’s to come, when your feet and hands swell and you can’t sleep and it feels like your groin in ripping in half from gravitity pulling the child down.
All that being said, I am so HAPPY to be able to be pregnant, so greatful to get another go at it, but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let this baby come home with us healthy and tiny and perfect so I feel like all this 2 years of pregnancy is worth it in the end. Please 🙂 and thank you. I would throw up 10000 days for a child.
Now the extra, extra, extra good news, (I hope)…
My IRL best local friend (who I am always talking about, whom I met at the hospital support group after our son’s death) is pregnant WOOT WOOT, 1 month exactly behind me. I am over the moon that we can go through this together, I just pray that as above, things go well for us both and we both get our babies together and we can spend our days together sitting around nursing our babies and snacking haha, I love her to pieces so this would be ideal. We were at her house last night for dinner with she and her husband when they told me. I did a dance of joy. True to every pregnancy she has had (She has 3 living children, her son who was stillborn and 1 early miscarriage) It took her 1 month to conceive. Crazy, I can’t imagine getting pregnant every time I have unprotected sex. ha!
Also-her job is an in home daycare, and I would LOVE to hire her to take my child in. Only downside to that is that she is 30 minutes drive from here in the opposite direction of downtown where I am most likely to work and work now. To be reconsidered pending child.
