I re-read my latest post and I realize I sound a little ungrateful. I want to apologize to all of you still out their fighting the battle. I will try harder to be sensitive in the future, but I just want you to know that sometimes I forget that I’m not still in the trenches too.
I know stressing is inevitable but I’m going back to the attitude I had while PUPO: This may be it, my only time to be blissfully pregnant, so I’m going to enjoy it!
So, on that note, here are my current symptoms, all of which make me smile and cringe simultaneously!
- Nausea that is very affected by smells. For example, I’m in the field right now for work (middle-of-no-where Alaska, about a 2 hour flight from civilization) and my cell phone doesn’t work so I have to use the land line in the room I’m staying, apparently the guy who lives there chews tobacco because the phone smells so strongly I gag as soon as it comes anywhere near my face! I have alcohol swabbed the phone and everything but it is still too stinky to use. I have barely talked to Blue in 4 days because I can’t bring myself to use the chew phone…
- Peeing all the time. I’m probably peeing twice as often as normal.
- Crampy but different than AF cramps (thank GOD!) more like it feels to have a full bladder?...
- Strange cravings. Today for a snack I had a cup of chili, I really wanted fresh onions on it so I went to the salad bar to get them and noticed potato salad, it looked so good I plopped a scoop into my chili. It was delicious.
