The sickness was NOT due to lack of sleep…
It is the start of the first trimester sickness! I have yet to share this blog with anyone yet….just logging my daily thoughts and emotions…but when anyone starts to read this I can describe what I’m feeling very easily…..the WORST HANGOVER EVER! At no point in the day does it get better. The only positive is that I have yet hugged the porcelain god, or get sick while out working or running errands. By 1:30 pm I am walking zombie. I am beyond tired and afternoon naps are a slice of heaven.
I am so glad I lost 14 pounds over the past few months because fast food has become a best friend (rolling my eyes & sticking out my tongue). My friend Skyla loved Chick-fil-a and talking to her today made me crave it. Thank goodness I have a mom that was two seconds from one and kindly dropped off some chicken nuggets, waffle fries and large diet lemonade, Thanks Mom! (Thanks Em for the suggestion on the drink- it was amazing, after the first sweet-then-sour sip it was Mmm Mmm good!)
Now usually people become obsessed with one place, but when it comes to food- I do not discriminate. In the last three days I have had Taco Bell, Wendy’s, Jimmy Johns ( deli meat is a no no but I could NOT resist), and now Chick-fil-a. I laughed/rolled eyes when I listened to my preggo friends when they expressed their love for greasy food or carbs…now it is no laughing matter.
They say you can learn a lot about a person by looking in their trash and that is a fact. As I went to throw away my Chick-fil-a I laughed when I opened my trashcan. On the top were two empty fast food cups and three crunched up fast food bags. [sigh]
My close friend, Emily, shares the same OB & is six months preggo & sadly feeling like poo too! Our doctor told her “If you can only eat twizzlers, then only eat twizzlers. At least you are eating something, and it will pass”…..now I have less guilt as I shoveled my waffle fries into my mouth 🙂
Ran by Babies-R-Us to purchase some preggie pops. They are lollipops that are suppose to help with dry mouth and sickness. I was so excited to find something that would help alleviate the nausea for work. It was nasty! It made me want to throw up & I spit it out….so back to the drawing board. Hopefully this stays as a first trimester thing!! Don’t know how some of my friends had this longer than 12 weeks….
Just wanted to send a BIG THANK YOU to my sweet friend, Emily Ley. She has been a source of information being four months ahead of me 🙂 She has lent her ear when I had my first of many crying sessions about my first doctor’s visit. Emily was kind enough to give my little blog a much needed ELP/ELC facelift! You should have seen what the blog looked like before…so fuggly! Thanks to her fabulous eye and creative talent she threw together my blog design in a snap and I LOVE IT! Emily owns Emily Ley Paper and I highly suggest you look at her website as I am in love with her paper goods! And if anyone needs some branding help, Emily Let Creative has done some amazing work too! So Thanks again Em!! xoxo
