It's been real first trimester... Week 13

But I am beyond happy to say goodbye. I didn't enjoy the sickness, or the awkward "don't tell anybody you're pregnant" stage.  I have pretty high hopes for the second trimester! I hope i'm not shooting myself in the foot after saying that.

This week I started working again at a super small hospital, I know, I am as surprised as you are. However, I wanted to keep busy and I felt like this was a very good decision for me.

I was very hesitant on telling my brand new job that I was pregnant. I told them the second day on the job, and instead of my job asking me, "uh, did you know you were pregnant in the interview"?

They congratulated me and told me how wonderful it was.

They completely ignored the fact that I wouldn't be able to lift patients.

They ignored that I would be taking a hefty amount of time to bond with my baby later on next year.

This solidified the fact that I was in the right place at the right time. I love when life shows you how truly wonderful it can be, all my prayers were heard after all. Thanks be to God.

On to the little peapod! This week he/she is as big as a jalapeƱo! Some days I don't know if I have a bump or I took Thanksgiving dinner a little more serious this year (most likely the latter). This was taken in the morning before it could be mistaken for a food baby. I will tell you I still fit in all my clothes, so I guess i'll milk that for a little while longer, but for the first time in my life I wouldn't mind having to get bigger size clothes for this little peapod.

I have been one tired preggo lady this week. I'm not used to waking up at 530a-545a, ok who am I kidding 6am, to get to work by 7am, and you'd think that living in LA and all the bitching i've been doing traffic this wouldn't be possible. Well my job is so awesome, it's only 15 minutes up the road. Nothing in LA is 15 minutes up the road in Monday morning traffic. Nothing.

Cravings: Lots and lots of spicy foods. I'm still loving salt and vinegar chips and pumpkin pie.. Maybe I didn't get my fill over the holiday.. I honestly don't know how. I also am craving Subway sandwiches really really bad. I haven't eaten any sandwich meat since before I was pregnant and love Subway. Maybe I should just go sit in Subway and smell the bread for awhile.

**So apparently preggos aren't supposed to eat deli meats/soft cheese due to possible listeria that can cause horrible sickness, so we have to avoid at all cost**

Aversions: Smoked turkey. I loved our turkey over Thanksgiving, but after that every time I smelled smoked turkey matt would heat up, I would cringe. I think it was just the smoky smell. Cabbage! ugh. Actually starting to yack when I think about tomatoes again... UGH.

Emotions: My emotions have been literally everywhere. We put up our christmas tree.. I cried. Put up the Cat's Christmas stockings.. I cried. We nearly adopted a dog... I cried. Reading all the comments of support from all my people.. CRIED.  Then I got angry because Matt didn't fluff the tree enough before ornaments... ANGER. Upset there was no pumpkin pie left.. actually that emotion was pretty normal.. but you get the point. Pray for my husband and the emotional whiplash he endures EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

Preggo thoughts:

  • I heard my baby's heartbeat this week. Is there any sweeter of a sound? I could have listened to it all day. I was sad we didn't do another ultrasound, but they let me know that I would get another on January 14, which should be the one where we get to find the gender! COUNTDOWN TIME!
  • Between all the emotions, I have been feeling really good this week. I really hope this lasts for the rest of the pregnancy! 
  • I think I have a bionic nose. 
  • I want to know the gender of my baby sooooo much. I really don't understand how people don't want to know. I think I would go insane.
  • We did put up our Christmas tree and didn't get a divorce in the process. 

  • I know I'm getting ahead of myself, but I CANNOT wait until Christmas next year! I just get butterflies thinking about it! 

Thanks for listening to my preggo rambles! <3 p="">
