8 week happy dance!

I don't know why, but I'm just happy to now be at 8 weeks! Yahoo

For the most part I feel pretty good. I seem to feel best in the morning then just a little run down by evening.

MS is almost gone for me. I really don't feel all that nauseous. Smells still bug me here and there, but it's much better than it was last week. Food aversions are almost gone as well. Food still taste funny sometimes, but I ate a burger with cheese yesterday and it tasted ok (I love cheese and couldn't eat it the last few weeks as it just tasted...wrong?)

Right now I'm just noticing my digestion is so slow that by evening I feel so full and bloated that I feel gross. Last night my stomach was still full from dinner 4 hours after I ate the burger!! I had acid from my stomach leaking into the back of my mouth and it was gross....

Boobs are sore, but not as sore as they have been before. It really varies from day to day. My nips got a little chapped the other day (I think from wearing a tighter work blouse combined with rubbing in my bra) so I had to put some thick lotion on them so they felt better.

Overall, I'm doing good and I'm happy! Our local farmers market starts this Saturday morning and I can't wait. I usually go early for when it opens to get best selection, but Saturday is my only day off this week so I'm sleeping in and going later instead! Then after that, I'm hitting up Motherhood Maternity to check out my pant options for work. I need at least 1-2 pairs pants as my other work ones are just too tight!

Glad to hear things are going so well for you! Also, glad to hear I'm not the only one digging into the maternity clothes! I don't feel quite so bad now!

I get super full really easy and stay full a lot longer too. Smile

I was in a conf call for several hours and only had 10 min to run across the street to grab a slice of pizza. Now I feel so bloated!
