Feeling: It’s been a rough week. I had terrible nausea for several days, an aversion to most foods, and a sense of smell in hyper drive! Public service announcement: if you loved canned fish and your pregnant co-worker asks you not to open it at your desk because they aren’t doing well, please don’t proceed to open it and eat it at your desk! I went home sick one day due a related circumstance, and that wasn’t fun. I’m hoping the retrogression to the worst days of the first trimester is over and I won’t have to do them again! The past two days have been much better- so fingers crossed!
But oh my weird dreams this week! Let’s just say I’m 100% confident one of my favorite married couples could be amazing crossfit/parkour combo instructors in matching cheetah ensembles in the streets of NY after doing their fitness video in one of my dreams… I also dreamt little guy was actually a girl the night after making a dent in my wallet at Baby Gap. Oh so many other strange ones, but at least I am laughing most mornings when I realize how weird my dreams were that night.
Fitness: I’m switching from straight runs to intervals. I’ll run a quarter mile, walk a quarter, run another, etc. for a few miles. It’s still kicking my butt- this extra blood flow thing is real!
Craving: Frosted Mini-Wheats have kept me alive this week! We bought double the amount of milk we typically buy and I’ve been pouring it on cereal and making a lot of chocolate milk at night after dinner. I must need calcium and vitamin D in large amounts!
He’s developing his five senses and can hear us this week! It’s pretty exciting to think he’ll know our voices when he’s born. He’s also getting a lot bigger, and I can feel the stretching happening and a little more movement happening too.
I can hardly wait to get to see him again in the next week and pretend to act surprised when my OB tells me it’s a boy, that is, unless my dream was some sort of vision…
