Wheeeeee, I made it! Technically, the 2nd trimester begins at 13 weeks but I’m here! The magical feel-better feeling, you come anytime now! Seriously!!!!
I met with the high-risk doctor today. Minicorn had grown enough to get the measurements, but it would not move into the position the tech wanted for anything. She was jiggling my stomach which made me want to kick her in the throat, and Minicorn was like LOL SO?? I mean, fetus in there just chillaxin, feet up in the air and everything. She finally got her measurement, said everything looked normal, and said they would check the cyst (if it’s still there) at 20 weeks. Now I just wait for my bloodwork results.
Still feeling sick though not all day like it has been. I threw up again last night, which I’m thinking was Minicorn’s slightly assholey way of telling me it doesn’t like ravioli. FINE MINICORN THAT’S WHY I ONLY BOUGHT 1 CAN, DAMN! My vomit count is up to 7. And because you all care, let’s look at some vom stats.
Vom 1: Brushing my teeth in the morning, gag, throw up stomach acid
Vom 2: Cleared my throat in the morning, gag, throw up stomach acid
Voms 3 + 4: Chugged prune juice, projectile vom
Vom 5: Brushing my teeth in the morning, gag, throw up stomach acid
Vom 6: Brushing my teeth in the evening after eating my 1st enjoyable meal in months, decide to go rogue and gargle some mouthwash, choke, gag, vom. RIP beautiful meal.
Vom 7: Just a random GET THIS SHIT OUT OF MY NUTRIENT SYSTEM vom, throwing up Chef Boyardee’s creation.
So I’d say Voms 3, 4, and 6 were my fault. This has been a statistical analysis of voms to date. You’re welcome.
Crabby and I are back on Team Boy now. Just feeling boy energy, along with several friends. Still aways to go but you all need to get 1 boy name and 1 girl name suggestion ready for the Name Reaping (if you haven’t read/seen Hunger Games, do).
It feels good to say I’m 12+ weeks. It truly does. Now I’m hit with how much there is to do in what seems like a really short amount of time. Baby items. Baby shower. Baby registry. Write a will? Life insurance for baby? Regular insurance for baby? Social Security Card for baby? Read on techniques to help me achieve a natural labor? What do I even bring to labor? What do I need to ask the doctor about her philosophy in the hospital? Am I sure I don’t want a midwife? BABY NAAAAAMESSSSS. Baby thangs. I think when I get to the point where I can actually feel Minicorn move, shit might get really real.
Here I am at 12 weeks. Being sick foiled the plans I had to do all those cute week by week photos I had planned, so I’m going to do monthly ones at 12 weeks, 16, and so on.
Even though I’m showing, I have actually lost weight. I really hope my appetite picks up soon; I’m starting to get worried. Starting in the 2nd trimester I’m supposed to be monitoring my weight to make sure I’m gaining around 1 pound a week. For those of you who went through food aversions and low appetite, did it get better? When?
