I think my most noticeable symptom today was having to pee constantly. Every time I take a sip I am running upstairs to the bathroom! Hey, at least it is good exercise to have to keep going up the stairs. In fact, I have to go right now. Ugh!
My skin has been extremely dry, no matter how much water I drink or how much lotion I put on. I cannot wait for the weather to figure out which direction it is going- warm or cold!
Which brings me to my next, strange symptom- I'm freezing cold all the time! Even when it is warm. Even with the space heater on me it's like this cold deep inside. Weird! Most pregnant women get hot flashes. Instead I'm a Pregsicle.
I know I make Andrea hungry every time I post and this will be no exception. I made tuna noodle casserole for dinner the other night- and the girls went to bed hungry because they refused to touch it. But me? Oh man, it was so good. There's a ton of leftovers and I have to refrain from eating too much fish! There's only about 10 ounces of tuna (not albacore) in there so I think I can have a little for lunch tomorrow and all will be well in Babyland.
Still no nausea except a little stomach discomfort after I take my pills. Instead I want to eat constantly, which is not good in my opinion. I don't want to gain over 25-30 lbs! At the rate I want to eat I might exceed that. Must... have... control..! Nausea always hit me around 8 weeks when pregnant with my girls.
I remember vividly when I got morning sickness with Butterfly. I was about 8-9 weeks. It was the week of my wedding. After the wedding ceremony, I sat in the bathroom with my face against the cool floor while everyone else ate and chatted. I threw up in the car on our way to our honeymoon... and on the way back. I remember that before then I didn't feel sick. I'm still waiting for it to hit me soon!
Insomnia- I have a major problem sleeping now and I'm only 6 weeks! Once I wake up, I'm up. Whereas before I got pregnant I could sleep through a train wreck outside my window, or at least fall back asleep after being woken up by it. Butterfly decided to climb into bed with me at 3:30am and I wasn't able to fall back asleep for almost an HOUR! It's horrible- I love and value my sleep very, very much!
Wow, this was really boring and kudos to you for reading to the end!
