Wednesday was the first day and what I was hoping would be the last day of getting sick. Being sick knocked me on my butt all day - I couldn't eat or drink, which made everything 10 times worse.
Thursday was fine - we had no power from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. which was not cool at all, but I survived.
Friday was....hell. Not only did I have nausea and vomiting, I also had a severe migraine that made the other symptoms a million times worse. I believe I ate a total of 8 saltine crackers the whole day.
Anyway, I am seriously thinking my 10 a.m. theory is right. The two days that I was sick, I woke up/got up before 10 a.m.
Today, I forced myself to stay in bed until 10 a.m., which I believe was a great idea. Although I didn't feel 100% today, I didn't get sick! So to start off my day I flipped on the TV and started watching Saturday morning cartoons.
Talk about feeling like a kid again...it felt like the old days when I didn't feel well and stayed home from school and got to watch cartoons in bed. I even watched the Magic School Bus, which made my day - it took me back to my Pelham Road Elementary school days. I believe we used to get to watch Reading Rainbow and the Magic School Bus every Friday, which was always the highlight of my week.
Anyway, as of today I am 8 weeks and 2 days pregnant. The baby has graduated from a blueberry to a raspberry according to TheBump.com. It's crazy to think the baby is so small but has already started forming its arms and legs and is actually starting to move a bit.
Here's the Bump's explanation of week 8 (read the description - it makes me laugh)
"Baby is growing like mad" - Ha ha - what a funny way to say how much the baby is growing.
Here's another description of what's going on with the baby right now:
