Work



I'm noticing now how many pregnancy symptoms I've actually had in the past week or so, most of them I just tried to ignore (wanting to sleep all the time: check. Feeling hungry an hour after a full meal: check. Extremely sore boobs and nipples: check). It's funny how you focus on the 'big tells' and miss out on the smaller ones. I thought cravings only came in the form of food; I've been craving Coke without wondering why at all. It just tastes so good!

Today I've slept a lot, ate a lot and now that I'm laying in bed, my lower abdomen are hurting a little. It feels like someone is trying to stretch out all my muscles - which is probably exactly what's happening, but okay. I'm extremely tired and don't look forward to work at all tomorrow, but we'll see how things go. At least I get to snooze in the train.

DB is super excited that it happened so fast and pretty bummed out that he can't be with me right now; we haven't seen each other in the past 2 weeks and won't either for another week or so. Work just gets in the way and even though we know this will be the last week, it's no fun at all. What I want to do most of all is cuddle up to him and letting him bond with my belly :) I'm hoping he's one of those guys who talks to his unborn child, I'd love that!

Anyhow guys, I'm pooped. Going off to sleep now!

Had a brief hickup yesterday and nearly went to buy a pack of smokes. I pat myself on the back for not doing so, usually when the urge gets so strong I'm not able to resist. Tonight I have to work in a bar (everyone will be smoking, oh my), but I think that will work out fine. I just need to keep reminding myself that it's not worth it!

symptoms



I have not been so nauseous in a long, long time. I woke up with it, then it subsided, and then it came back with a vengeance. My throat is sore (which is normal for me any time I get sick) and all I want to do is go back to bed and sleep. I took a warm bath just now, which helped the bloating and the overal tummy pains to go down, but I'm still nauseous. If this is morning sickness then hallelujah, what did I get myself into??

DB called me this morning. Since he lives in Germany and I in Holland, we only get to see each other during weekends. I've been so weepy the passt two days and missing him an awful lot; last weekend we got to spend a few hours together before he had to go again. He's a mechanic and gets send all across the county he lives in (and always 4 or 5 hour driving from me). This hasn't really been helping the whole baby-making-ritual, but we keep reminding ourselves that it will happen eventually. Anywho, he called and had not one, but two nasty pieces of news. The first one is that the company he's working for is declaring bankruptcy and that he has two more weeks before there's no more work. GAH! There's plenty of other work he can do, but it's so frustrating. He loved doing this, it paid well and it made him proud to be able to put money away for us; it hurts to see how something like this took his pride away so quickly. The other thing he told me was that they're trying to get as much work done before the final day, sort of an go-out-with-a-bang thing, which means he has to work tomorrow. Since I have to work tomorrow evening and we both have other things planned on Sunday that we can't cancel, we won't see each other these two weeks. AT ALL. I cried all morning when I heard it (I told you I was weepy). Since I am now 8 DPO, next week we will either know if something is happening in my uterus or my AF will rear it's ugly head and we won't be able to BD. Very friggin frustrating to say the least.

Ah well. I'm gonna go back to bed and hope this sicky feeling is gone by the time I wake up again.
