Pregnancy, Take Two

by verdemama on November 11, 2010

Hooray for finally letting the cat out of the bag! I’m officially 11.5 weeks pregnant, thanksforasking. The only thing worse than being pregnant, exhausted and ridiculously queasy is not being able to bitch openly about it. Sorry, Internets, I just wasn’t ready to tell you until this moment. Now that I’m closing the door on the first trimester, I’m slowly but surely starting to feel better and ready to spill the beans.

First trimester hormones are… how do you say… a bitch. The past five weeks have been rough, to put it mildly. I’ve been 100 times more nauseous this time around than I ever was with Orion, and being paralyzed with nausea and trying to keep a toddler entertained is no easy feat.

The nausea is finally subsiding—thank god—and I’m able to actually eat a meal again. For weeks just the thought alone of food was enough to turn me into a sweaty, stomach-crampy mess. The worst part was that the only food I could tolerate was junk food—like chips and nutritionally devoid garbage like that. (Albeit the health-ified Whole Foods-variety of chips, but still…) I don’t usually EVER eat that kind of stuff, so it was really weird that that was the only thing I wanted. All I can say is thank god for prenatal vitamins, because I don’t think I ate a single vegetable for about two or three weeks in a row.

And seriously, who ordered the pizza face? My mug has been raped and pillaged by acne for weeks now. And it’s not only my face… it’s even on my scalp and the back of my neck. When I was pregnant with Orion I had an itchy rash all over my back and upper arms that lasted about a month. I thought it was annoying at the time, but I would much rather have that than the cruel joke that is my face right now. I’m very much looking forward to that second trimester glow. Seriously. Any day now. I’m waiting for you, glow.

Other than the above-mentioned nuisances and the occasional random mood swings and weep fests, I’m doing great. All my checkups have been good so far and I’m looking forward to once again rubbing my torpedo belly, feeling little feet kicking, and all that good stuff that comes along with the territory.
