Symptoms: Nausea (but it eased up later in the week), cravings (for breakfast foods), dizziness, the C-word
Body changes: There is no denying the bump (although I still just kind of feel fat, as it’s not rock-hard yet). I’m getting the hang of what to wear and what not to wear, depending on if I mind showing or not on that particular day. Boobs are still sore, but I’m not sure if they’re still growing.
Cravings: Cold cereal, cheesies!
Loved chowing down on: Fresh fruit, cold cereal, bagels, chocolate pudding — not sure if it’s just because they are convenience foods, and I am
lazy tired all the time.
Could not stomach: Mayonnaise (I do really miss sandwiches and wraps, but I can’t do it), looking into the fridge (the leftovers look gross, and I can’t bring myself to clean it out … Darling Husband?)
High point: Doing the Chinese gender prediction test and seeing that — according to it — I’m having a girl. Yes, I am embarrassed just typing this, but I’m being honest!
Low point: Worries about miscarrying. I have not had any spotting again, but I can’t stop feeling fearful at every twinge.
Paranoid moment of the week: Being super-nervous when getting my unadjuvanted H1N1 vaccine (i.e. the safe one for pregnant women) and flu shot. In the end, I got them — but it wasn’t without some doubts.
Weird moment of the week: Being unable to drink from my plastic water bottle at the office, because the taste of plastic grossed me out. I ended up bringing in a glass from home, so I’ve been using that instead. That was a weird one.
The Chinese gender chart predicted a girl for me too, and it was right!
Really??? Ooh, yay!
