I feel like I should be 25 weeks not 15!!!
So far I have gained 15 pounds. YIKES. I haven't been able to put on more than 2 pounds since I was 14!!! I have litterally been the same weight since junior high.
I did a pregnancy weight calculator thingy the other day, and if I continue gaining weight at the same rate, I will gain 60 pounds by the end of my pregnancy!!!
Oh my, oh my.
I am hoping my body is just playing catch up because I was underweight when I got pregnant. LET"S HOPE!!
In other news, I finally went on Diclectin and I feel like I partially got my life back!! I was trying to be strong and not go on any medication because I just didn't want to take anything that could even remotely harm my little bean. But by 3 months, I had had enough of puking my guts out all day every day.
Question for you moms out there: do you ever feel like 'yourself' again?
I mean, I got pregnant and now my body has been taken over by this little alien (who I LOVE), and I keep thinking 'I can't wait just to have him/her so I can have my body back' but that won't really be the case will it? Cause if I am breastfeeding, the boobs will be his/hers. Right now I am a walking incubator, and then I will be a walking smorgasbord, and then we will probably pop out another one.
Or maybe I should take the approach that now I am just more of me - fufilling my eternal role as incubator.
Yup, that's the winner.
Cause seriously, body being taken over aside, this whole pregnancy thing really is a miracle. I just can't stop revelling at the fact that there is a living human inside of me.
Anyway, I will try to update more. That is, when I am not passed out on the couch with a migrain, exhaustion, or other perils.
