Sorry, dahlia, that you feel so crap. I'm feeling only slightly queasy all the time, but it makes choosing what to eat really tough. 99% of options sound disgusting. I'm on a porridge kick. I bought it in several grain varieties, and I love them all with maple syrup and brown sugar and butter, or with frozen berries mixed in. I think I'll try apple cinnamon now. I should make myself something I'd normally eat, like smoked salmon & cheese scrambled eggs but that just sounds so smelly and icky to me right now. The foods I want are so specific and bland/simple.
8.5 weeks and got my gums checked at an annual cleaning today and there is no sign of any problems. I read that any issues with gum disease (which can be silent/asymptomatic) can exaccerbate PTL symptoms. That's my number 1 goal, avoid PTL this time around.....
I'm wearing actual maternity jeans my mom mailed me. I LOVE them. I don't care that it should be way too early to be wearing maternity jeans with the proper attached belly band, they are SO COMFY. I don't want to wear anything else that might dare cut into my bloateyness. I look kinda pregnant, especially when I sit down and there's this mass blob in front of me that doesnt' push down. Standing it doesn't really show with a tunic on, especially not in the morning when I wake up, but in afternoon/evening, I'm just a spare tire blob queen and I can't stand anything digging in to the fluff of me.
I am IRRITATED with my DP. He was reading 'Natural Birth the Bradley Way' because I am kinda forcing him to do so, and when I asked him if he was learning anything, he said, 'Yeah, maybe too much details.' or something to that effect, and when I asked him for an example of a 'detail' he wished he didn't know, he wouldn't say but said generally everything that goes on in 'the cellar.' I'm sorry but what the heck. Childbirth certainly is an activity that doesn't happen ABOVE the waist, for goodness sakes. He refers to it as unsavory and I resent that. He should be amazed by the miracle of my body producing a human child for him (his first) but instead of awe, he's kind of shell shocked about it and all he has to say is he'd rather not know about all the 'cellar details' involved in the process. ARGHHH. You'd think he would have admiration for the workings that will create his first child and push it out into the world to meet him. I would rather not know about them either except for I have to freaking DO the thing, after 9 months of awfulness (I have hated being pregnant every time, I don't handle it well, especially not the bedrest when my stupid uterus thinks it should spit out a baby in the second trimester already), as my reward. What is he, a man from the 50s who wants to wait in the hospital waiting room with a box of cigars ready? Sheesh. Rather not know about the cellar details. hmph. I'll remember that next time he wants the equipment in his 'cellar' handled with aplomb and not revulsion. I'll tell him that he can handle his own cellar details.
Sorry, rant over.
