How Iâ€™m Feeling: Â Morning sickness started this week and it wasnâ€™t just in the morning, contrary to popular belief. Â I woke up feeling nauseous and usually went to bed feeling nauseous with just a few times during the day that it went away. Â I didnâ€™t throw up any times though. Â The food situation is just weird. Â I have to be at the exactly perfect amount of fullness or Iâ€™m nauseous; that being not too full and not too hungry. Â If I get even a little bit too hungry, a wave comes over me and itâ€™s all over.
I have minor little â€œperiodâ€ cramps occasionally that kind of worried me at first, but rest assured, itâ€™s most like my uterus expanding.
My boobs are still really sore and Iâ€™m just exhausted. Â I canâ€™t fathom doing much during the day. Â I am still trying to exercise with a heart rate below 140 bpm, which consists of walks, the elliptical and a one very watered down Insanity session. Â Now that Iâ€™m so tired, I donâ€™t really care that I canâ€™t workout, but Iâ€™m trying to get something in most days.
What Iâ€™m Eating:Â Meat is on its way out this week. Â As good as it sounded for the past few weeks, Iâ€™m getting over it. Â I sometimes think I can manage to eat some whereas other times, there is no way. Â I bought lemon pudding this week, which is one of my childhood favorite snacks, but I havenâ€™t bought any in 10 years probably. Â Itâ€™s one of the things that sounds like it would soothe my stomach. Â Otherwise, slushies and fruit seem to sound good too, but none of this makes me full which is a problem. Â At the end of the week, I finally broke down and bought saltine crackers. Â I have been avoiding dairy, eggs and wheat since the food sensitivity testing I did in March, but wheat is slowing sneaking back in due to things like saltines. Â The rice crackers and flax crackers just arenâ€™t the same. Â Iâ€™m hoping I can cut back on it again once I feel like a person again.
Life:Â My mother-in-law came into town for the weekend and we went and looked at Buy Buy Baby just to get a feel for what is out there. Â She ended up buying us the Baby Bullet to make our own baby food when the time comes. Â David and I feel strongly that we donâ€™t want to feed the baby jarred baby food very often due to the high amount of chemicals and perservatives in them.
