Jessica, I agree eat what you like. That's how I always dealt with it because IME nothing I did changed how bad I felt (even lost 10 pounds in early pregnancy with DS1) so if something sounds good then go for it. :)
Jessica - I agree with Lynn - when your tummy is so upset like that, the only thing for it is eating whatever it will actually take. I've been walking around in a semi-queasy state at all times for days, so if something actually sounds good I am going to jump on it!
Except I did that this morning, ate something crazy, and now still feel sick. LOL, oh well I was probably going to be sick regardless.
PedNurse - how fun. Lazing around in a wave pool sounds just my speed at the moment.
Lynn, 12 years! Congratulations! How was the dinner? I love Italian too. I always want Italian from this place in NYC. It was soooo good. I wish I could remember the name of the place. We were all drunk when we stumbled in but man the food was delish!!! lol
Alissa, that's too bad about the food not being very good. I like going to the Alamo Drafthouse. I think you guys have one there in CO. They have pretty decent food. Kind of greasy but good...lol. I'm glad you guys had a nice time and as long as SIL is happy...:D.
PedNurse, I'm glad you guys were able to make it to the park and had a blast. Oh and I think it's awesome that you guys live near the beach.
Babywings, Glad you were able to visit with your mom. I'm sorry about the drive home though! Being sick is no fun but I love it because it means things are progressing nicely!!
AFM, not much going on here....just trying to take it easy after a busy weekend with family. We are still keeping our pregnancy a secret. We were going to announce after the gender scan but we might wait a little longer because BIL and his wife just announced last week that they're pregnant with #3! Lol...they are due 2-7 days after me.
What's for lunch everyone?! I bet I know what you're going to eat Alissa...;) Just kidding.
I ate a Cantina Bowl from Taco Bell in about half the time it should take a normal person to eat it.
Now.. not doing so good. Ugh.
Driving to my appt now....eeeeeeeeeeeeee!
Good luck Alissa!!!! I can't wait to hear all about your appointment!!! :D
Good afternoon/evening everyone! Did anyone do anything fun today? I was going to take T to Pirate's Cove which is a little water park near us, but thankfully I called ahead of time because I wanted to see if they had lockers you could rent, and found out that they are closed on weekdays after Aug 11th. Booo! So I took T to the zoo instead, and we had a nice time. They have a new elephant exhibit that we hadn't seen before, so that was fun.
Tonight we are going to "have ice cream" at DH's aunt and uncle's house to see Jon's cousin's family who is in from out of town. This is so mean, but I'm really not looking forward to it...just really tired and cranky because I can't eat ice cream anyway...lol
What is everyone else up to?
Let's see, what did I do fun today..? Oh! I had a nap! lol
Worked today, hurried home to take off my uncomfortably tight pants and my bra whos underwire decided to poke me all day. (I don't want to buy bigger clothes until my ultrasound tomorrow). Took a nap...cooked dinner..and basically just sat on the couch with the trash can nearby. I get nauseous every five seconds or so...
DH came home and rubbed my feet and told me how much he loved me.. so that was super nice.
My mom texted me yesterday and told me her stomach hurts..and she said it hurt today too. So now I'm wondering if this really is morning sickness or if I have a stomach bug... :shrug:
Alissa, that's too bad about the water park! I'm glad you guys were able to have fun at the zoo. I love going to the zoo even though the one we have here in Austin is tiny and is more like an animal sanctuary. How was the ice cream party? I hope you had a good time. ;)
Babywings, I'm sorry you're feeling so sick but take it as a good sign! I hear you on the tight pants....lol. How sweet of your DH to rub your feet. I love getting my hands and arms massaged. :D
AFM, So...I finally had to do it. I ordered 2 pairs of maternity jeans. I'm pretty excited! One of pairs is the maternity version of my favorite JBrand jeans that I wear all the time! Seriously, it's the same cut and color just with an elastic waist! Ha! Now no one will know that I'm wearing maternity jeans! :wink:
I NEED to start exercising. I have gotten so lazy. I have a treadmill and 3 prenatal workout dvds here making me guilty. I've gotten most of my energy back but I'm still pretty tired these days. I'm promising myself that I will exercise for at least 30 minutes today. :)
