I am Eleven Weeks!

I'm getting closer to the end of my first trimester. I haven't thrown up since Friday, which is a good sign. I've been feeling better and my appetite is growing. Hopefully that means that I'll be able to eat better. I've been having a hard time eating because everything just bothers me. Now that I'm a little hungrier, I find that food sits better with me. We shall see!

It's been tough getting use to the changes in body. My stomach is sticking out. I don't look pregnant, but I do look a little fat. I don't care either way. I show off my belly. Sleeping has been a pain in the butt. An old injury of mine (my left hip) has resurfaced. It has also turned into a sciatic nerve thing. In other words, I'm having a hard time sleeping. Although, I do admit that last night I end it up sleeping on my hip the entire night without moving. I woke up in the same position. I must have been tired! I try not sleeping on my left side, but it's my favorite. We did buy new a new bed, which we get delivered this weekend. I hope this improves my nights. Our bed is just too old and uncomfortable.

Another change that has occurred is with my hair. It has become very soft to the point that I'm considering not using conditioner. I'm guessing it's from the vitamins. I only put on a small amount of conditioner and leave it on for about a minute. I use to leave it throughout the whole shower and then put on a leave in to calm my fly aways. Amazing!

We'll see what else goes on!!

I've Been Wiped Out

I know, I haven't posted in over a month, but I have my reasons. First off, I just don't have any energy when I get home from work to do anything. The job takes a lot out of me. On the weekends, I'm so busy catching up on rest that I barely check my email. I need a little vacation, soon!

Well, there's a reason for all of this tiredness. In fact, a huge reason. Besides getting use to this new job and still bartending, I have other stuff going on with me. I AM PREGNANT!!!!!!! Yup! As of yesterday, I am ten weeks. This explains the lack of any energy I've been experiencing. I've known for about a month, but wanted to wait on blogging about it.

My pregnancy is going well except for some morning sickness I'm experiencing. It really hasn't been bad. I am having trouble eating. Everything grosses me out and doesn't sit well with me. I've come to the conclusion that the only things that my stomach could handle are ham and cheese sandwiches, strawberry jello, ovaltine, and bread and butter. Yup!

I am also having a hard time dealing with the lack of energy. I just can't move my ass anywhere. When I get home from work, the only energy I could muster is to lay on the couch and fall asleep. They say this changes once you're in your second trimester. I hope this is true.

This baby will be my birthday present!! He or she is due on or around Sept. 18th. My birthday is the 20th. I was my mom's birthday present, too. Her birthday is the 27th. How cute is that? I can't wait.

Well, there you have it. There's my big secret!! We're very excited about this. I'll keep you posted on how I'm feeling and how the baby is doing. Wish me luck!!
