So I am at the 16 week mark this week and finally feeling better (hallelujahthankyoujesus). I’m still on my anti-nausea medicine, but I used to just feel well enough to get by on it (and it was SO much better than before I started taking it) but now I feel about as normal as a preggo can I guess and that’s been a breath of fresh air. I started to back off the medicine since I was feeling better and I think I got a little too cocky and ended up running to the bathroom again so I think I’ll stay on it a bit longer, back off a little more slowly, and see how I do. ANYWAYS, it’s amazing how different life is since I feel human again. Each day used to crawl by and it felt like it took years before I could see the week jump another number in my pregnancy app (been using the What To Expect When You’re Expecting app) but now it goes by so quickly that I can barely remember what week I’m on before it jumps up again. I’m sure being in the holiday season is also part of it—it always feels like this time of year flies by and then January-March takes freaken’ forever. Since I’ve had more energy to start getting lists and registries together I’ve been faced with the overwhelming deluge of baby item choices and I spent most of last week feeling very confused indeed. Thankfully, I’ve gotten some great suggestions from readers and friends and I’m starting to get together some semblance of a plan for most of the items. I figured I’d start with small decisions (think onsies and baby tubs) and work my way up to the expensive stuff (i.e. cribs and strollers). I’ve got a short work week and then it’s off to Todd’s parent’s house for Thanksgiving and some fun time with our Gummernieces (they are the cutest!) so I’m looking forward to reading in the car and some extra naps on the days off. Hope your holiday is a happy one!
