Unfortunately, this post is not about those types of joys. Instead, this post is a short dedication to the other types of pregnancy joys, including: an increase in migraines, a decrease in migraine medications available to me, lots and lots of puke, uncomfortable nights with little sleep, as well as other "unmentionable" symptoms, as my mother would call them.
I had one enchanting evening in the E.R. last week. Of course, the never ending puke ordeal had to come during the 48 hours that my parents were in town. The plus: nobody takes care of you when you're sick like your own Mama!
I'm posing the extra flattering picture below. I don't actually look like that when I'm suffering... hopefully. This was just the picture to send to Dad & Grant to make sure they weren't having too much fun at the Dallas Stars game without us.
After two months of this lovely yuckiness, it is either starting to get better or I'm getting used to knowing when to take my medication. I'm guessing it's the latter.
Recent milestones include: 2-3 days without throwing up, 1 day without taking migraine medication, and running a whole mile without stopping. Really, it was more of a light, light, jog, but man, I've never been more proud of a 12 minute mile!
As far as pregnant belly goes, I don't have too much of one yet. This picture was taken two weeks ago. I am now at 14 weeks and I've grown a little, but not much. It's hard to gain weight when you can't really eat...
But don't worry, I've been on the new and innovative Cheetos diet lately so I should start showing soon. Perhaps the growing fetus inside me might assist in that growth too...
