My Weekend - doing what I can and accepting it!

Hope everyone had a nice weekend, if you celebrate anything or not!, I enjoyed some time with my uncle and his family (he has three grown kids and they have their own kids, so it is a nice full house). They gave me and Chris an Easter basket, so I ate way more candy than I should have. The sugar rush felt amazing and made me feel like a normal person for little while. The crash was unpleasant, though!

Things are pretty much status-quo with me: low-level but constant nausea, fatigue, and a complete grain addiction. It's only when I am eating and for a short time afterwards that I feel alright!

Last night's dinner was a pork chop, half a roasted eggplant, and cantaloupe. Haha. No judgements, but it was what I was craving. And it wasn't bread, so that's a big plus. Working on getting my vegetables in (turns out I wasn't really feeling the asparagus and gave that a pass). Tonight we are going to do lettuce wrap tacos with avocado and tomatoes.

I have a lot more respect for pregnant women after only two months of being pregnant. I simply don't feel like myself at all. Eating and sleeping is pretty much all that is important to me the past few weeks. I, at times, feel like a complete loser as I see Chris doing things (he recently took a hunter's safety course so hopefully we will be eating venison this year!), going out to see friends, and stuff like that. I much prefer staying in bed with the cat!

But, I know logically and I know from all the advice you guys have given me, that this will pass! So I am working on just accepting what is happening right now. I am doing what I can, but I accept what I can't do.

My ultrasound is this week. I don't know that I will post much before it, because I already cannot stop thinking about it and all the possibilities!

I also have my brother's engagement party this weekend, so that is a happy celebration to look forward to :)

Peace, my friends, I wish you all a beautiful day <3


  1. Glad you had a nice weekend and are enjoying the weather! Hang in there - I know I felt great my second trimester! :-)

  2. I'm sure you will begin to feel better as time goes on.

    Thinking of you

    All the best Jan

  3. I came to think of the nausea as a sign things were progressing as they should be hormonally. It helped until the nausea went away at week 16.

    Oh, venison. I'm envious! I'm glad he can keep the deer heard population in check and you can get some good grass fed meat from it. Love this.

  4. One more month or so and you'll be feeling better. At least that was my experience. It was like a light switch.So much of your food, hormones,vitamins etc is going to develop that little baby. Hang in there, you're doing great. Thinking of you.

  5. I'm with Karen - even though it SUCKED...I always took the nausea as a good sign. But it was rough, for sure! I was obese during both of my pregnancies - and actually didn't gain a pound my second time around. I lost 10 pounds during the first trimester, then only gained those same 10 back. Every pregnancy is different, and you are doing yourself a huge favor by being mindful. Just cut yourself a little slack these first few months. So excited for you!

  6. With pregnancy everything changes - I know the nausea is horrible but this is such an amazing time... make sure you enjoy it. I'm looking forward to hearing how the scan goes!!
