Double digits! I can’t really believe I’m 10 weeks today. What a rollercoaster this has been so far. After the craziness of last week, I really tried to stay positive this week and so far I’m feeling good about how things are going. Being positive doesn’t come all that naturally to me (I’m a chronic worrier) so I’m pretty proud of myself right now!
In the last week, my symptoms have really kicked into high gear and my evening sickness morphed into more of an all-day sickness. My belly has been pretty bloated, enough that D and I actually argued about whether or not I was “showing.” I say it’s just really bad bloat but he thinks it’s too big to be bloating. Obviously, I’m right.
Nausea: I feel OK when I wake up in the morning. I eat something small before I leave for work and then have a bigger breakfast when I get to my desk. Mid-morning is when the nausea has been starting this week. Afternoons and evenings are pretty bad too. I always drink a ton of water, but I’m starting to notice that, by the afternoon, sipping water makes me gag a bit.
Vomiting: None to date.
Food cravings or aversions: No real change here.
Aches and Pains: The boob pain has actually let up a bit. They still look pretty swollen and veiny but aren’t as excruciatingly sore as they were a couple of weeks ago.
Fatigue: Killer. I’m so tired all the time. It doesn’t help that Littleman is getting his molars and has been up a million times in the last couple of nights. I really need to sleep through the night.
Other: My bowel issues continue, which is a total pain. I actually bought myself some baby food prunes the other day but haven’t been able to get up the courage to try eating them. My skin is pretty bad again this week, especially on my chin.
