|Lady Jr has finished making most of its organs and is now focused on growing as much as it can. Everything’s about to get big!
But not right away. Lady Jr is about the size of a bee hummingbird:
I’ve suspected Lady might be experiencing Couvade Syndrome – aka Pregnancy Sympathy – for a few weeks now. She’s been fatigued almost as much as me and has had a hard time doing simple things. Then last night she was walloped with nausea that sounded a lot more like my kind of nausea than usual. So I gave her some of my ginger chews and told her it should get better in a few more weeks. ❤
In other news, I have officially become meat-averse. I didn't think it would happen because in the beginning all I could eat was meat and bread, but now I can't even stand meat. I had a veggie burger on Saturday for the first time in forever and it was so weirdly satisfying.
I've also figured out the secret in getting around some of my vegetable-aversion and acquiring more fiber: smoothies. Some blueberries, some strawberries, some chia seeds, some yogurt, and a handful of kale = yes. It has been helping immensely in the constipation department and I can change it up quite a bit if one part starts to become an averse-food.
Between smoothies and soup, I’ve actually been eating somewhat okay this past week. I still can’t say no to bread or pastries, but they are taking up less and less room in my diet. Hopefully the days where I’d only eat pizza are finally over. I am tired of being bloated from all those carbs constantly.
Speaking of tired, the fatigue is waning. It’s no longer constantly overwhelming. I only napped twice last week and twice over the weekend – about half as much as the week before. I still had two really bad days last week, but overall the trend if improvement. Which leaves me hopeful for this week, so close to the end of the first trimester. Two more weeks!!
That said, it still doesn’t feel real. I can be as exhausted and as nauseated as a dog, but apparently my brain still doesn’t believe this is happening. I’m hoping that changes soon.
