Mondays – I love them!
They mark new milestone weeks for my pregnancy and get me excited for the latest changes to little honu.
Today, I’m 11 weeks! Double digits! I like the sound of that.
Contrary to what I’ve read, my morning sickness is NOT dissipating. In fact, it’s worse. Not by a lot, but I’ve found myself barely having enough time to make it to a sink or bush, much less the bathroom. Seriously, I’m not supposed to be getting sick while washing my face. It comes on that quickly.
And wow does baby know how to sap me of energy. I’ve always been a 3 meal type of person with few snacks in between. Now I find myself drained of energy in 30 minute increments. Geez! It doesn’t help that the only thing I truly love are McDonald’s milkshakes. And as someone who’s always been particular about what I eat, stopping by McDonald’s 3-4 times a week just doesn’t sit well with me but baby sure likes it. Yikes!
And because of my changed diet and cravings, I’ve had an annoying digestive issue. At the risk of it being TMI, let’s just say I really need to add fiber to my food intake. Or prunes. HA!
So that’s week 11. Seriously, I live my life in weeks now. LOL – it makes the year slow going. I’d say this is life’s way of getting me to stop and smell the roses. The experience is incredible!
