How I’m Feeling: The morning sickness is back with a vengeance. I had a stressful day in clinic on Wednesday and was running around with my head chopped off and then I had class afterwards. I felt terrible that day. I had to stand up for class and I was feeling dehydrated (that wouldn’t go away no matter how much water I drank), nauseous, and I also had cold, clammy sweat. I left school crying to David. I got home, ate Chipotle and realized I was going to live. I have decided that stressful situations and pregnancy are definitely not ideal. Last week in clinic I felt great and thought the morning sickness was subsiding a little bit. I flew home to visit my mom and look at houses in Denver at the end of the week, which was really nice. I still had bouts of nausea, but it felt great to be out of the heat and with my mom.
I didn’t really have any episodes of muscle spasms or anything like that and my back pain went away somewhere in the week.
Doctor’s Appointment: No doctor’s appointment this week.
What I’m Eating: Nothing new really. I have decided that Chipotle really makes feel good. There are no allergens it in and it’s substantial. I could probably eat it everyday, but I’m not sure I like the guacamole. I think I’m getting a few more veggies and fruits in my diet. I have eaten so crappy that I am finally over it. I am now craving the way my old body felt eating fresh foods. I still have the occasional craving for Arby’s and Dairy Queen, but I’m realizing that it’s not making me feel well.
Exercise: I still haven’t done too much. I have been on some walks, elliptical one time and my mom and I did kickboxing in her bedroom. I couldn’t get my heart rate above 140 bpm, so it wasn’t too substantial but it was something:)
Let’s hope for new progress next week…
