13 Weeks

So yesterday marked the beginning of week 13. Depending on who you ask, this is either the last week of the first trimester, or the beginning of the second trimester. I guess I will go with the 14 weeks plus one day measure for that milestone. I am just happy to cross one more week off of being pregnant, and happy to be one week closer to finding out if it is a boy or girl.

The morning sickness still doesn’t show much sign of easing. Occasionally I feel kinda human, but I don’t want to put much hope in that. I still don’t exactly get hungry much, it is usually just varying degrees of nauseous. For instance, today around noon I was feeling the nausea meter tick up another notch so I decided I should go eat something before it got even worse. I ended up getting Italian Wedding Soup and a veggie platter from Saladelia. The soup was so good, and when I finished it I actually wished I had more. But before I ate I had no desire to really eat, I just felt sick. And I still didn’t even really want to eat my veggie platter, I just wanted more soup. For a while after lunch I actually felt okay, but it was in a way that I didn’t really notice until I started feeling sick again. Now it is after 3pm and I am exhausted and spiraling back into acidy nausea.
