Yeah, because you needed my permission for that. Um.
Today I saw our baby for the first time!
I also went in our new first house and saw it for the first time.
It was a good day. Thankfully I remembered to bring extra food to work for before and after the appointment, so I didn't have to post status updates about gnawing on my steering wheel.
I remember the last time I was this tired: summer 2003; Oaxaca, Mexico; intense bacterial infection.
That was probably the tiredest I've been in my life.
Today might be a second, though I'm not sleeping much. Pregnant, fighting a cold, tried to help out a little at the beginning of Moving Day. Oh, and band practice before that. For some odd reason, none of my vocal teachers warned me singing from the diaphragm doesn't mix well with morning sickness. :) It's good I haven't actually been vomiting.
The energy just won't come back, once it's gone, wow, it's gone!
Also not a fan of this nausea-hunger warning system.
Okay. Anyone out there have morning sickness past fourteen weeks, but not throughout all nine months?
Hmm. Just realized Kaiser gave me a medical excuse not to go to work, and I didn't even ask them for it!
From 'Weeks 14 to 18 of Your Pregnancy: After Your Visit
Your Care Instructions':
Figure out who or what causes your stress. Avoid these people or situations as much as possible.'
I hear hunger is Bad throughout pregnancy, but really? Waves of nausea like this? I think I still have morning sickness. If somewhat abated.
Wow. Within a few days I've gone from 'Well, I think maybe what I'm feeling is the baby moving, but it's hard to really be sure' to 'Yeah, I'm pretty sure, this has got to be her. (Look, now there's pressure on my lungs! Now the pressure is on my bladder!)' to, well.
Let's just say I could now tell you where to place your hand if you want to feel her, too! ^_^ That wasn't even true last night. Er, not last night before I went to bed. I think it changed in the middle of the night sometime."
