As my faithful readers know, the first part of pregnancy was rough.
And that's an understatement.
I swear morning sickness was much worse this time around although my mom swears that I was that sick with Isabella, too. Maybe I don't remember because I was so sick?
Although--quick fact--I read that the older a woman is the worse her morning sickness will be. Who knew?
Anyways, I am proud to announce that I. feel. marvelous!
More energy throughout the day, an enormous appetite (not again!) and if it weren't for Miss Olivia doing her marathon sessions of cardio and gymnastics, I sometimes would forget I was pregnant at all! Except when I just want a margarita on the rocks or glass of wine and remember ohhhhh....I'm pregnant!
My cravings have been strong the past week. They include the following:
* I have to have fruit. Especially plums and raspberries. Those are a must.
* And pasta. Anything with marinara sauce = pure bliss for me. Seriously. Funny the first trimester that was one main culprit that made me feel like curling up and never moving again.
* Lets not forget tomatoes with salt and pepper. Yum!
* And the past few days? It was chocolate. But only certain things and not a lot of it. No bake cookies, brownies. Oh--and something not chocolatey is a strawberry milkshake from Bop's Frozen Custard. No Sonic or Whataburger knock offs for me. I want the good stuff!
That's it as of today. My main craving culprits. Very similar to what I wanted with Bella. Except with Bella I craved lemons, too. Yummy, sour lemons. And Sour Patch Kids or Sour Straws.
Now I feel like I need something sour!
