@ BaileyB- I hope your daughter recovers quickly! That's one huge injury, did you ever find out what she broke it on?
I'm due the first of May... unless you listen to the ultrasound tech, who said I'm due the 6th of May. Either way, the due date is +/- 2 weeks depending on which way the wind's blowing... so I'm ok with it either way. My nausea is gone, unless I go 4+hours not eating while awake. Then it kinda pokes its nasty little head in and waves as if to say "I can visit you any time, muah ha haa!" So I've been snacking and eating. Hopefully I will gain some weight now, I'm still down 5 lbs, but I'm not worried until my midwife is. She may not even notice the drop/gain, because I'm HUNGRY now, and I don't see her for another 2 weeks.
People keep telling me the fatigue will leave, which is amazing news. Its ebbing already, but I could just be getting used to it. I think I'm doomed on the stretch mark front. I've got silver lines on my hips, thighs, breasts and arms because I hit puberty at full tilt. (2 pants sizes, 3" in height and flat to a C cup over Christmas break...Thanks Santa, All I wanted was a super nintendo and permission to paint my room blue.) I think I'll start a betting pool for what direction and what color(s) I'll stripe in.
I already bought maternity pants, in part because my jeans hurt, and in part because my interview pants were nearly impossible to button. Theoretically, they'll stretch until May.
Coconut oil sounds delicious... yum. Please tell me that it's both safe to eat, and unpleasant to lick off of your fingers! Otherwise, I'll have to leave it at the store.
DH& I decided what color we'll be painting the nursery... but we need to find the walls first. I'm way impatient to get the nursery set up. It's kind of a honey-tan color, so it'll go well with purple or green, should we have a girl or a boy. Also, it contrasts nicely with the hardwood flooring & trim, and the (most likely) cherry or espresso finished furniture.
I got my flu shot the same day my pregnancy was confirmed, it had been scheduled for a month. They used the one without the mercury preservative when I told them I'd just gotten the official pregnancy test. I get them annually, because the first year H1N1 was a thing, I caught it, the regular flu, had strep throat twice, then caught a stomach bug. The stress levels at my job pretty much boned my immune system, and I tend to get really high (104+) fevers, so the risk of running that hot is more dangerous to me and the baby. I may do without next year, if my job isn't as stressful. I have only gotten sick once, as I conceived, since being laid off.
I thought I could feel the baby, briefly, on Saturday. Like when your eyelid flutters, but once or twice and then nothing, in my belly. How early is too early to tell?
