3 Down, Many More to Go!
We had our third doctor's appointment yesterday. I have gained a few pounds and I must say my doctor was very proud of me! Wow, proud to gain weight, it is such a weird feeling. All my life (well, the past 10 years) I have always tried to keep my weight, always hopeful that would mean I would loose just a few pounds. Who was I kidding, I have never lost weight until I got pregnant - go figure.
Everything looked great at the appointment and we will be doing the ultrasound on my birthday! Yay! I can not wait to find out what this little creature is. I swear, it keeps me up at night having to try to figure out what color the nursery will be painted, what color my diaper bag is going to have to be, and what bedding we will get. I know I am so silly, but it is all so much fun to think about. I need something positive to keep me from thinking about how sick I have been the past four months.
Why did no one tell me pregnancy was so hard? Why is it that I only saw all the cute happy little pregnant people running around? As you can see, I am getting a little frustrated. I was okay until about 15 weeks, and then I just got mad - this is when I am supposed to feel better! If I read any more lines about how I 'should' be feeling, I swear, I will hurt someone! I have read so many lines saying - this is when you will have all of your energy back, you should be feeling great, this is the honeymoon stage of your pregnancy, the nausea is gone, and you are able to do the things that you enjoy most !!!! I find them to be comical now. I just don't know when this is going to end. I was talking to a friend in my ward and she said you think it should just be bliss because all the women you see are enjoying it, while all the women that have a hard time during pregnancy are at home in bed! I thought she had a great point! I did start on the Phenegran, so we are crossing our fingers it will help.
