Weight Gain: 4 lbs. It is crazy to me how much you can gain and then not gain with pregnancy.
Cravings: Eggs, French toast with cream and yummy syrup, orange juice, cheese burgers with bacon, oh and bacon and more bacon! Anything that has meat in it really. I eat whatever sounds good at the time since I might not like it later.
Aversions: Too much milk, plain water is really gross right now (choking it down though), certain smells make me sick almost instantly too.
Symptoms: Nausea 24/7 although some days are decent and not too bad, tossing and turning at night, Awesome acid reflux which makes me sleep sitting up right every so often.
What I miss: Not wanting to throw up every single day and night, not having heart burn, sleeping without having to sit upright.
The past few weeks have seemed to zip on by with nothing to crazy going on. I have had a few bouts of heart burn really bad. So bad that I literally had to sleep sitting up right to help me fall asleep. That was unexpected this soon in the pregnancy but it just means it is a healthy pregnancy I suppose.
I do have bouts of really good days or moments during the day where the nausea is gone, completely. Those are great and makes me look forward to when it is gone completely. I couldn't go in the kitchen for a while but the one day I was feeling awesome I cleaned it top to bottom really good!
I have been really tired but not so bad. I do literally come home after work and eat, bath my daughter and get us both ready for bed. I am getting probably 10-12 hours of sleep at night. If I don't get enough sleep at night I am dying at work and falling asleep so sleep right now is my friend!
