I am so happy to be at the 10 week mark with this pregnancy. I thought for sure that I was going to have another miscarriage. I know that is bad to say, but once you have one, you are not that positive about pregnancies. I couldn’t be more thrilled, although this pregnancy is so much different than when I was pregnant with Xavier. Everyone keeps telling me it is because I am having a girl, but I do not buy into all that talk, I think it just depends on your body and what you are bringing into your body. I know I am sick because I am not getting in a lot of liquids, and the stuff I am getting in at this point is not the healthy food that my body is used to…and I can tell. It is not that I am eating not good stuff on purpose, it is just that is the only thing that sounds halfway decent to eat at this point. I am hoping once the morning sickness leaves, I will be able to get back on track with yummy good for you foods. The last thing I want to do is fill my body with crap and put my child at risk for childhood and lifelong diseases. I feel that a lot of the diseases and disorders that are popular now among children are started at what the mother puts into her body during pregnancy….such are carbs and processed foods….along with foods with a lot of hormones and pesticides.
Lets talk sickness, I went to the ER last week…I was totally dehydrated. I knew that I was, I told the ER and they gave me liquids and sent me on my way. It helped…I didn’t even need a doctor to see me (which they did of course) but I knew what was wrong with me and what I needed. I was so dehydrated that I couldn’t keep down liquids to hydrate myself. It is like once you get dehydrated it is hard to get out of it. I have been better since. The only bad thing, my insurance only covers the anti-nausea med that makes you sleepy….so once I take it I am out for the night. That is horrible for late night studying, but I got to do what I got to do and right now I need as much rest as I can get. I am so sick of being sick.
I feel like all I am doing is complaining this pregnancy. I am usually not one to do that, especially when it comes to my house being spotless and such…but right now I just cannot do anything without becoming tired, irritated, and sick. I hope within the next two weeks I start getting better because I do not know how much more I can handle. On a good note, I am still not gaining weight, only losing. I know that isn’t the best, but I will take it…gives me a little more room to grow when I am not sick….which I hope is really soon!
