Today I am 11 weeks pregnant and so far these 11 weeks have been almost completely different than my first time around. I constantly had the car sick feeling with Delilah but this time around it's x's 10. I remember being tired with D but I have never been this exhausted in my entire life!! All I want to do is sleep, really, I'm not exaggerating, I literally just want sleep all day long. I guess when I was pregnant with Delilah I took full advantage of the being able to sleep whenever I wanted to, but I was still working part time and going to school. (I took a huge certification exam when D was 3 weeks old)
I didn't have cravings with D and smells didn't upset me until the third trimester. This time around I have been nauseated 24/7 along with cravings. It's the weirdest sensation to feel like at any moment you could throw up and know the only way to make that feeling go away is to eat something. One day all I wanted were chips and salsa, so I ran to the store and got them. The next day the smell made me want to puke (it still does). I had a HUGE salad one day with the works on it and got super sick after it and can't even look at a salad now. In fact there are a few things that when Collin eats them I have to go in the other room.
Tonight I may or may not have fallen victim to my own cravings, and may or may not have gone "shopping" at 7-eleven at 10:30 at night to get 4 dollars in junk. Some of my cravings have been orange juice, gummies, water, chocolate milk (just for a few days), oranges, skim milk, and cereal.
Things I don't want to touch and make my stomach churn just typing their names; olives, salad, ranch, tomato pasta sauce, meat (something I craved with D).
This pregnancy is already wearing on Collin, Delilah, and me. Hopefully all the bleh will end in the next few weeks. Fingers crossed, then maybe the blogging will pick up.
