Well, if it's not one thing it's another...I'm sick! No, not with morning sickness, but with a cold from hell. My throat is killing me and I can't breathe through my nose - and I'm sneezing ALL the time. I've been feeling crappy the past two days, but boy did I wake up feeling like a ton of bricks hit me while I was sleeping this morning. Don't the doctors say that if your mucus is yellow then you have an infection? Yuck - I hope this isn't an infection.
OK - on a different note...
According to my doctor and TheBump.com, I am around 6 weeks and 3 days pregnant - which is clearly not far along at all. After finding out that Rudy and I are having our first child, we wanted to tell EVERYONE and we did - but was this a good idea?
After telling everyone our news, I started reading all those books/websites/magazines and came to find out we probably shouldn't have told everyone....yet. Apparently the best time to tell everyone the good news is around or after 12 weeks pregnant - whoops, I totally missed that memo! The reason being is because so many women have miscarriages during the first 12 weeks - well we've already had our miscarriage scare, so hopefully we won't have anymore!
Anyway, according to TheBump.com, our baby is the size of a sweet pea. Holy moly that's small! I still can't believe you can hear the baby's heart beat when it's the size of a sweet pea - incredible, right??
So far my symptoms have been pretty normal - nausea, heart burn, acid indigestion, and others that are just too much information - ha ha. Oh and acne! I have never had more than one or two pimples at a time on my face before and now I have them everywhere! I thought you were supposed to look the best you ever have while you're pregnant...ha ha, guess that's not the case for me quite yet.
Well, I can honestly say I have not been craving anything - I don't want to eat or drink. Just thinking about food makes me want to throw up all over the place. Sometimes there's a very short window when I am hungry and well if I don't eat immediately - forget it! I have to eat as soon as I feel hungry because once that short window passes, nothing is going down without being forced down.
So now that I've spent a lot of my morning blogging - I guess I better do something a little more productive...homework. Luckily homework is another thing that will keep me busy while on bed-rest...
