On Being Pregnant

Today marks 12 weeks and 1 day. Yippee! It would be even more exciting if the throw up part was over. I felt better at 16 weeks with Cora. 4 more weeks of this? I'm prepared, sort of. In the beginning of all of this, I told Jake I couldn't wait to adopt the rest of our children.

I had an appointment with my OB yesterday, my fourth one, I feel so spoiled. It was mostly to make sure she was comfortable with my weight. We got to listen to Indee's heartbeat, and it was terrific. Much longer than last time. Every time I go in, she (my OB) says I'm having a boy. Maybe it's a natural reaction. One girl must mean one boy is on the way. I still want to call him* a he.

I haven't really had any cravings. I buy some things, and then open them and want nothing to do with them. Nothing ever sounds good. Except for a meatball sub a few weeks ago. I can't wait to have an appetite again. And to like milk again. Oh how I've missed cereal, even though the very thought of it does something funny to my tummy. Life without cereal is weird. Gum is a lifesaver. I chew it all the time to keep a nice even flavor in my mouth.

My dreams have been vivid and crazy. Two nights ago, I dreamed I was in jail and they were about to confiscate my Peppermint Extra. It was a nightmare. The worst part (worse than no gum?) was that I could only talk to Jake and Cora through the glass and phone thing. Not being able to touch my babies. I think there were real, non-dream, tears involved. Last night I dreamed about some monsters, a boy and girl, er, man and woman monster. The girl monster lived in a cottage on a hill. The boy monster was in love with her, and he went that night to kiss her, which would break the monster spell. Some villagers were making their way up the hill, and the girl monster went to go stop them, they didn't know boy monster was at the cottage, nor that he could break the spell and end the oppression they'd inflicted upon girl monster. He hid in the cottage, and turned all the lights out. He couldn't get one of the lights out...it was attached to her alarm clock. He hid it under the covers, where he was hiding too. It was hot with the light under the covers. I was even breaking a sweat. All of the sudden girl monster burst through the door, you could hear the villagers behind her. She came in and planted a kiss on boy monster. Then I woke up, so I didn't get to see how fabulous they became and how they put the villagers in their place...which I'm sure is what happened.

  1. dude-our pregnancies are amazingly similar...aside from the villagers and monsters..but the vomiting,nausea, gum, cereal/milk, etc is right on the money... but mine always continued until month 6 (Hunter) or 5 (this lil one).
