We made it!
The first trimester is over and we survived. I say we, because, although I had to survive the physical trials, Luke and Judah have survived an emotionally volatile and extremely sleepy spouse/mother for the past three months. Way to go team!
Where are we now?
Things that are still kind of crummy:
If I don't eat frequently and with great gusto about 5 times a day I still get faint fast.
Sleeping is becoming uncomfortable.
Soft foods make me want to hurl.
The potential return of the constant- pregnancy UTI and as a result the return of pure cranberry juice binges.
Things that are awesome:
The return of the boobs (like a bad sequel, but good).
The ability to nap at the drop of a hat.
and, best of all, today I started to feel the definitive little bubblings of a kicker in there!!!
Bacon and eggs.
Beer (a craving I haven't fulfilled)
Suffice to say I'm giving birth to a trucker from the Midwest.
Judah's thoughts on baby now?
He points to the ultrasound and shrieks "BABY!"
He still thinks there's a strong possibility Luke is also having a baby.
He kisses the tummy when he's trying to avoid falling asleep at bedtime- the rest of the time he tries to sit on it.
I believe he's getting tired of all the hype around a baby who never shows up...
All in all, I'm glad that part is over! Now we wait 27 more weeks... anyone want to go to Taco Bell?
