Oh yes the joys of pregnancy. 🙂 As of today all the fun pregnancy symptoms have kicked into full force.
Nausea – From the moment I wake up until the time I go to sleep I have a slight case of nausea. It gets worse a few times a day when I get completely nauseous and just wish I could throw up and feel better. I am not sure which one is worse the nausea or full on vomiting. If I don’t eat I get sick, if I eat I get sick, I just can’t win. This has been my new BFF these days.
I eat this at least once a day. It seems to help settle my stomach a bit but then I feel like I ate a huge meal and I get sick afterwards.
Sore boobs – Yup this has been a constant since 5dpo. They hurt so bad it actually hurt into my armpit. I feel like they weigh 20 pounds. Oh and this is oh so much fun when you have a 3 year old who things my boobs are handles for her to hold on to or a good spot to use as leverage to get out of the bed. Nothing like a good elbow to the boob to make you want to cry.
Smells – OMG nothing smells good and everyone wearing perfume or cologne makes me want to puke. This is so much fun while I am sitting in church and a very nice older lady sits down next to me wearing her entire bottle of old lady perfume. REALLY??? I just can’t handle this right now. I am sitting in church trying to smell myself or my wife and avoid the smells of everyone else. Dog food and dog treats are hideous. I am so grateful baby J likes to help me out and give Zoey her treats. Oh and then there is the great fun of having a toddler that still needs to be wiped in the bathroom after pooping. Yup nothing helps with the great pregnancy sense of smell like wiping your toddlers butt. I swear if I don’t puke on the kid we will be doing good. I have never been so grateful for having D home to help with bathroom duties.
Toothpaste – I never had any problems with this one before now. Toothpaste is the worst tasting crap in the world right now. That and having a toothbrush in my mouth just gags me. Since when is toothpaste so damn potent!
Teeth – my teeth have gotten so sensitive already. I am very good about brushing and flossing and I have upped my tooth care due to the sensitivity and that just makes it so much better since I can’t stand the toothpaste and toothbrush these days.
Flab – I don’t think this is necessarily pregnancy related but I feel my belly is getting flabby. I have not gained any weight yet so I feel this is a direct correlation to the fact that I cannot run or workout. I still wearing all my same clothes and I don’t feel bloated just flabby.
Exhaustion – I am tired all the time. After I am up for a few hours I need a nap. Why does my toddler not nap anymore? I really need her to have nap time again. I have been in bed by 9pm these days.
I am trying not to complain to much – I know it can be worse. I am just hoping this all passes soon.
