Better days.

Now that I’m nearing the end of the first trimester, my stomach kind of teeter-totters between sickness and starvation.  The last 3 days have been mostly awesome.  Very little nausea and lots of (gentle) activity.  However, the trade off is I’m now constantly hungry.  I’m going to be the size of a small country by the end of the pregnancy if this keeps up.  I eat every 3 hours or so.  If I don’t, the icky comes back.

All I can think about are all the National Enquirer covers that had “The World’s Fattest Woman” on them.  Eating my way to infamy.

    I’m so glad you are better! But on the other hand-playback for almost 9 months of pregnancy nausea. I hate to say this, but I gained 15 pounds before my fourth month. I did not do this with Matt. Do you think we may have a girl? Love

    Ah, yes. For a few weeks there I was nauseous and hungry at the same time. Who knew that even happened?

    I easily eat every three hours. I just get too hungry. But I try not to eat too much that’s bad for me and that helps with the weight gain. I’m definitely gaining, but I don’t think at an obscene level. I eat lots of stuff with fiber and work hard at getting 5 veggies and at least 1-2 fruits in a day.

    I try to eat the things that are better for me. No ice cream in the house (a thing of frozen yogurt, though). Applesauce and fruit cups. Cheese. I do eat cereal bars in the middle of the night. The big problem is that I get hungry but have absolutely no interest in eating. Even the things I like sound a little gross to me.

    My wife doesn’t know it (until now), but waking up to someone eat a chewy cereal bar at 3am is a really, really strange thing. I haven’t quite decided if it is disgusting or endearing… at this point I think its “none of the above.”

  • Susan

    It’s far better to wake to me eating a cereal bar at 3AM to being woke up by the sounds of helpless wretching at 6AM. But maybe I’m biased.

    Those sounds don’t seem to wake me up – remember? 😉

    I’m not complaining – just commenting. I would rather know that you’re not going to be sick, even if it does mean weird sounds next to me. 😀

    At least it’s not potato chips. Think of the crumbs!
