Aversions: My appetite has been pretty good, but still no chicken for me!
Symptoms: I still have occasional bouts of nausea, oddly enough it’s usually in the late afternoon or evening, which sometimes makes getting dinner on the table a bit of a challenge. My main symptom this week has been fatigue. As a teacher, I became a champ at getting through tiredness, but this is different. If I start to feel tired and I don’t lie down, the room starts to spin. I’ve found that the most I can be on my feet at one time is about 30 minutes, then I have to at least sit down for short rest. As a person who hates (HATES) not feeling productive, that can be a little annoying. Late in the week I started having trouble sleeping, which I know is related to the daytime fatigue. It’s a bit of a conundrum, because I know that when I don’t exercise, I don’t sleep as well, but my stamina is not such that I can really exert myself. This being the last week of my first trimester, I’m hoping all this will be temporary!
Cravings: I have been craving’s my mom’s pot roast. Weird, I know.
There it is! Looking good…unlike my hair that day!
This week I got to visit and share a meal with some family, including this little ball of precious. He’s the brand-new baby of my cousin and his lovely wife, who were kind enough to let me steal him, sit in a chair, and breathe in the cuteness. I can’t wait until our kids can play together! My cousin and I are only a few months apart and always played well together (apart from that time he started calling me Jack-O-Lantern in the second grade and coerced the rest of the class into doing the same - thanks for that, Nick!)
