Maurine, stop googling!
I talked with my OB np and she said that it's totally normal to feel nauseous now, with all the hormone changes going on with the placenta taking over. It's no fun, though. Yesterday was RRRROOOOUUUUGH!!! The only thing that fixed it was doritos/cheetos and a pot full of mac and cheese (organic Annie's, at least!) Shhhh...don't tell anybody.
I guess I let myself get too hungry. ughhhh
slylives, i'm so glad to see you here! It's nice to have some BSL grad company. I'm glad things are going so well!
finnegansmom, thanks for the tip about fresh air! Yesterday in the car I seriously was wrestling not to throw up, and I opened the window (to frigid temps) and it helped. I agree with you, boy names are somehow harder. I don't know why! But there's nothing wrong with being nameless at birth. Maybe you'll see the baby and just know, y'know?
jessica, I'm so glad that Asher is sleeping like a dream! Keep it up, little one!
musicoholic, it's great to see you, hon! you're right: preggie pop drops are my savior! A colleague gave them to me and they have gotten me through some really tough moments. Sending you tons of good thoughts!
Jane, any updates/ultrasounds? How are you feeling?
afu (as for US
) - Our ultrasound on Wednesday was wonderful, and our little munchkin is looking so much more like a little baby in there. Holy cow: arms and legs and even a beautiful little profile! And I think I might be feeling the baby sometimes. I mean, it's what I've been feeling for weeks, but I think it must be the baby, and it's more clear now. Like...swishy feelings and then bumpy feelings. Every time it happens I'm like, "did I just feel that?" It's exciting.
I told my principal yesterday, and she was so so so so so wonderful. she actually said to me, "one thing you'll learn about me is that family comes first before everything." Like, she told me to make my baby a PRIORITY over my students. :shocked
It was awesome. Oh, and I told my team and nobody told me "oohhh, there's something in the water here!" for which I was very thankful.
Anyway, I start prenatal yoga tomorrow and I can't wait. I'm still totally exhausted in the evenings, falling asleep really early and feeling pukey through the night, but during the day I'm sometimes having energy. Clearly I am right now.....
Thanks for reading.
