I've been eating peanut butter again but I don't seem to want it on apples at the moment. However DH just sliced up a couple organic Pink Lady apples for me and I am eating them with a fork with lots of cinnamon. Delicious.
Oh. My. Gosh. This is unbelievably cute/sweet/adorable/whimsical. Love the colors. Are you on Etsy? I am teary eyed looking at it.
And Kamiro, love teal and brown as a kitchen combo :)
Weeks: according to the u/s we had last Monday, I'm at 14w4days. They bumped up my due date. I am just planning on late October as both of my kids came at exactly 37 weeks. The u/s was so great and really helped me connect. And I love how happy and excited DH gets when he sees the baby. He can't let go of my hand. So sweet.
Next appointment: May 17 I think. Somewhere in that week. I heard the heartbeat at 11 weeks which is totally unprecedented for me and my steeply tilted uterus. My m/w is so great because she cried with me. Pregnancy hormones are best enjoyed with those who partake in them with you :)
Symptoms: good news! now I 'm only throwing up 3-5 times a day. Lucky me!!!! Note the sarcasm. I feel completely at the mercy of my damn nausea and I am over it. Just over it. I have a couple of days of bliss and then twice that many where I can't stomach much. And the night nausea with this one is new. I throw up the contents of my stomach every night at around 8 PM.
But, I've only gained 6 lbs because of it--bright side?
Feelings: mood swings. I am either madly in love with DH and kids or I regard them as hostile occupants of my home. Lucky for me I live with a very tolerant and patient partner who does his best to indulge this ridiculousness. Still working on bonding with baby as I know it's so important in utero but I do feel some guilt that it's not been as instant and intense connection.s
Good news: After this week work calms down a. lot. So happy for this!!!!! And my night Zumba class ended last night for a while and my day class ends Friday for a while. I have really been struggling to be a good instructor the last few weeks so having some down time will be great.
Cravings: guacamole and Ben and Jerry's fruit sorbet :)
I also had an abnormal pap again so have to go through the damn process of being further checked for that. This happened at last year's annual so I am not that surprised but annoyed as I came up clear last year and am at the lowest risk level this time, too, but still need to do it to see if I need to take extra steps to protect baby.
And I have strep.
And I found out yesterday that my beloved admin assistant has been embezzling money for the past two years. I was/am devastated.
