Today Phil and I got to hear little Ching's heart beat! It was a beautiful little sound! We scheduled our gender appointment for Sept 12th. SO SOON!!!!
My pregnancy has been a roller coaster. First trimester was miserable. My morning sickness was all day long. I couldn't see, smell or eat food. 90% of the food I ate I would throw up...there was this terrible mental battle if I eat I get sick, if I don't eat I'll get more sick. As person who loves to cook food, read about food, write about food and watch t.v. shows about food I was stuck in an 8week depression force feeding myself peanut butter toast.
One of these depressing evenings Phil decided to have a left over pork chop as a late night snack. The smell of his little snack sent me straight to the bathroom to up-chuck the minimal substance in my body. Phil came in to bring me water and then the smell on his breath initiated a 2nd round of heaving. I went straight to bed. When I felt Phil crawl in next to me there was a strong smell of peanut butter. I asked him why he smelled like peanut butter and he said, "babe I ate a spoonful of peanut butter instead of brush my teeth so I can sleep next to you". ha ha ha very sweet and SMART!
I'll be ending my 15th week on Wednesday and I'm still battling nausea. This time its only at night and happens when I eat too late or get too tired. I struggle grocery stores. The smells are too strong, I usually end up grabbing a plastic produce bag and hold it as my vomit-exit strategy.
I don't think I've had too many hormonal moments... I find myself snapping at Phil when I get hungry, I realize how unreasonable I am and quickly apologize. Phil is good at handling me...he never takes anything personally.
I don't think I'm showing yet, I just look bloated. My clothes still fit but feel most comfortable in stretchy dresses...good thing I live in Hawaii. I'll be wearing stretchy dresses everyday!
We had an amazing week with Abby and Denny. It confused my brain to have them here then have them leave. I felt like I got a little piece of home back and then it was torn out of my hands! ha ha ha. ok i dont need to be so dramatic. I'll let A&D blog about their trip.
This is what we do on the weekends. We set up shop and chill at the beach. Im looking forward to all of our upcoming guests!
