how far along: 14 weeks 1 day
|it seems bigger in person.|
inanimate comparison: the size of a lemon or your clinched fist
maternity clothes?: i've only tried leggings and mainly because i couldn't stand how my regular leggings cut my stomach off.
cravings: i've been digging chocolate milk and eating a lot of pickles, but i do really like pickles any way.
aversions: chicken is dead to me right now. and coffee. i love coffee. but not now.
emotions: snippy if i don't eat. blubbery if i'm up too late. and, today, i about cried at wal-mart because they didn't have one single ripe avocado.
fatigue: traveling to ny took it out of me, but i think the fatigue is getting better. but, ask me again after this week back at work. hmmpff.
symptoms: aside from peeing a ton and feeling like someone is shocking my nipples...i feel good. i must eat every 1.5-2 hours. i have an occasional headache, but i'm not complaining. i will take it all and then some!!
what i miss: i miss iced tea, but i've slowly been having a bit here and there. i really miss subs (jimmy johns and goodcents). i'm not sure about that whole no lunch meat thing, but i'm not risking anything. did any of you avoid it? i do not miss drinking, although, now and then...a cold beer looks good.
fears/concerns: i'm anxious for our appointment thursday. psyching myself out that something may have happened between our last appointment and now. i really do feel optimistic, but i think anyone would have that fear.
highlight of the week: realizing that i was getting a bump. it seriously popped out over night and i think i was in some kind of denial. i kept telling my sister, "that was already there". no. it wasn't. another highlight would be jake telling me that the tiny bump was cute. because i was feeling a little large, at that moment.
i'm thinking one of these posts every two weeks. each week might be overkill.
