Ekblad7 due Feb 28Please let me know if I have left anyone out!
And now, I am feeling the need to emote.
First, just wanted to send vibes to Jenny. I've been thinking about you. I've been thinking about a lot of you, actually!
I still haven't had any serious morning sickness, just a bit of nausea throughout the day. Up until today, I hadn't been feeling especially tired. I don't feel that bone exhaustion that I know some of you do, though; just feel like it would be nice to curl up with my pillow and take a cat-nap and do some deep breathing.
Today is, however, the first day I am experiencing remarkable moodiness. My poor husband is doing his best to make me feel beautiful and loved and appreciated, and I am kind of just growling around because I don't feel like talking or interacting at all
. We did have a nice Father's Day morning; I gave him a journal and a DADDY keychain which he loved. It was also a nice surprise for him because he didn't expect for me to have gotten anything for him.
I had a terrible dream last night that my husband and I were on vacation in a beautiful condo somewhere, but that my ex-husband broke into the house in the middle of the night and was trying to kill me. It was terrifying and VERY odd because my ex-husband and I have essentially no relationship at all, and there is no hostility between us; we've been divorced for over 5 years and have both gone on to happy lives. It was so bizarre. I have read though that it's not uncommon for women to have dreams of people trying to kill them while they are pregnant. I am wondering if it just my protective instincts kicking in? The night before that I had a dream that I got into a serious fight with my PhD mentor, who is also one of my best (male) friends. I'm not sure where all of these negative scenarios are coming from because on a conscious level I am feeling very positive, peaceful, and happy. Have y'all experienced anything like this?
Have a peaceful Sunday.
