Symptoms: Nauseous, exhausted, peeing a lot, excessive hunger
Body changes: Stomach is most definitely getting bigger (wore my belly band with all pants and jeans — except my blessed yoga pants).
Cravings: Oreos (finally got some!)
Loved chowing down on: Plums, clementine oranges, green grapes — fruit is rocking my world right now! And, you know, Oreos.
Could not stomach: Mayonnaise (or the thought of any sandwiches or wraps), looking at raw meat.
High point: Going for my eight-week appointment and hearing that all of my vitals are perfect — and that I get to see my OBGYN so soon!
Low point: Spotting that lasted about a day. Absolutely terrifying, and I am not sure I will ever stop crossing my fingers before looking at my underwear (until Baby is safely here).
Paranoid moment of the week: Holding my breath while walking past smokers on the street. I have always hated walking through clouds of smoke, but now I feel like snarling, “Baby on board, assholes!”
Weird moment of the week: Probably being surprised by how my hunger has amped up. I am still trying to get used to packing bigger lunches, and making sure I have healthy snacks available (fruit has helped) so I avoid eating crap just because it’s easy.
