Pregnant

...but not in the almost-about-to-burst way. I feel the early symptoms -- the overwhelming nausea where you have to take a bite of protein as soon as you wake up or else you'll never make it to the kitchen to make breakfast for yourself.

Last time around I had a husband who helped. This time I have an almost 2 year old Goose who needs ME to cook for her as well as me being the sole cooker in the house for me too :) So far I've been able to stand strong at cooking for her but I did nearly have to pull the car over to lose my breakfast yesterday while she was asking over and over for "lunch". Thank goodness for life savers! The little punch of sour helped me make it to my destination.

Still trying to figure out how pregnancy and systemic yeast go together? Since I don't absorb nutrients the way I should, having a baby leaching nutrients from ME seems like the only one really losing here is me. I have already begun to lose weight unfortunately even though my appetite for the last 2 weeks has been HUGE. I've eaten lots of calories and was sure because of the volume of it that I had put a few pounds on. I was quite shocked to step on the scale and see I had gone backwards quite a bit. Just another thing to mention to the doctor.

I'm thankful for the Great Physician who is caring for both me and Baby #2 and who I put all my trust in as I wait for answers!

  1. Heather, I am praying for you and both babies.
    Hopefully, you will begin to put on some weight. (That was never my problem)
