The morning sickness, which should really be called all-day sickness, has been stronger this week. I've found that I had to eat constantly in order to not feel nauseated. What's amazing is that i didn't really gain any weight. I expected to with everything i was ingesting and the lack of desire to exercise. I haven't been able to eat what i needed to either.
Instead of veggies and meat i am eating fruit and grains. I hope to soon be able to eat salads again. I want to be able to exercise as well. Its difficult when I feel so sick and worn out. My son and i have spent a lot of evenings just lounging
Being sick has taken energy from me, and managing it has taken even more. My metabolism has been working in overdrive burning everything! At least the sickness tells me something is happening inside me. And after my doctor's visit last week, I feel more confident that this time things are going to turn out ok.
I still haven't had any dreams about the baby, or having a baby. My mind has been closed off to trying to determine if I'm having a girl or a boy, so that could be why. So far I can't really tell, but during the initial ultrasound, i felt as if I was looking at a girl. But although I feel more feminine than i had during Landon's pregnancy, I still am not sure at all if my instincts are telling me anything.
