Today I am 13 weeks pregnant! This past week flew by for me. This was the week I thought I would feel the best so far. Well, think again. Fatigue came back with a vengeance. I have been SO tired again 😦 Some days I didn’t even have the energy to get up off the couch. Feeling sluggish and exhausted started to make me feel kinda down and not in a happy mood. Could be hormones, could be from the exhaustion, or both. I was really starting to enjoy doing home improvement projects before I got pregnant. I started feeling really good about finding something I was good at and enjoyed. Now, I can’t really do those things anymore. A lot of the materials I was working with have dangerous chemicals/ingredients and to me, it just isn’t worth the risk. So with that in addition to feeling exhausted and not wanting to do ANYTHING at all… I’ve just been feeling blah lately.
Two nights ago, right as I was falling asleep my hips started hurting SO BAD. I’m hoping it’s because they are widening because I have such narrow hips 😛 I doubt any of these aches and pains are going anywhere so I guess I have to get used to it. I can definitely notice a change in my body too. My stomach isn’t flat anymore and I have a lot more weight in the midsection. Not complaining! I do hope I can gain a little weight all around though but everyone keeps telling me they think I’ll be “all belly”. I guess we’ll find out!
Last night I had a horrible migraine. It is torturous to not be able to take anything for it. I’m used to taking “Goody’s Powder” and it works within minutes. Definitely can’t take that now. No, Tylenol doesn’t help me at all. I don’t see the point in putting something in my body that I know won’t work. I worry too much and I’d rather not take anything. Yes, I’d rather suffer than expose the baby to something that isn’t 100% necessary. That is my choice. I already have the feeling that I would do anything for them, so I make decisions in the best interest of the baby.
On a good note, I had my first baby dream this week! It was a little girl. She was already walking. She got sick and I caught it in a towel (ew I know) and I told Aaron to go get her undressed and ready for the bath. As I’m getting the bathtub ready, I see her running out with a Valentine’s day outfit on. White shirt with red hearts and a red tutu with her hair in a teeny tiny pony tail on the top of her head. She had no diaper on and was just running around the house. I start yelling “Aaron! Why would you put her in that!? She has no diaper on!” … and that was it. So weird, I know. BUT I still think we are having a boy 😉
