Well, any hopes I had of possibly not having morning sickness are throughly out the window. It started before six weeks (last time I started getting sick the day I turned six weeks), but once I hit this week it's been way worse. Every morning I'm dry heaving, and it's definitely not left to just the morning. No, no, it lasts ALL day. Even when I get to a stage that I can stand to eat, I'm still slightly queasy. I'm so ready for this stage to pass! Unfortunately, it just started not long ago, meaning I probably have about another month and a half of this to go. :( The only thing that makes me happy about this is that it means my levels are still up, hormones are still raging, and baby is hopefully still doing fine.
It's weird. I know for a fact it's just a phantom symptom (for now), since it's much too early, but every once in a while it feels as if I feel fetal movement. Obviously that's not it, and maybe it's just reminiscent from my last pregnancy, but still it's odd! Maybe it's just stuff inside shifting around and I'm more sensitive to it or something. I don't know! I can't wait until I can for real feel this little one moving though. With Blake, I could feel movement at 14 weeks. I hope I can with this one too! I could have other people feel it from the outside until it was closer to 20 weeks, but still, there are people who haven't even felt any movement at 20 weeks.
Nate says he's having sympathy symptoms, such as pregnancy brain, and maybe the appetite. I'm not really hungry now, but at first I was so hungry all the time! It was like that with Blake too, starving at first, not interested during the "sick times," the starving again towards the end. I did enjoy the appetite I had with Blake. I've never been able to eat a ton at one sitting, which is a shame when the food is good! So I'm excited about that for this time, I just hope I don't gain a TON of weight. Speaking of gaining, my boobs are so huge and swollen. Very uncomfortable! I'm busting out of my bras that I have, and it's difficult to find the next size up, unfortunately. I wasn't this size until more like half way through last time. Eek. Please stop growing!
One good thing about this time is that my skin has been pretty clear. With Blake I was broken out a good part of my pregnancy. So at least there's one benefit!
