Crazy? I Think I Have Arrived...

Now that I am over 10 weeks pregnant (well, I'm guessing...I don't have an u/s until next Monday...) I can definitely tell. Remember the bragging that I was doing saying, oh...I don't even feel pregnant?

Yeah. I don't feel much of anything these days accept moodiness, cry babyish ways, exhaustion and nauseated. That sums up my life right now--and I am sure that Leo is so sad that he has to miss out on the "fun" 1st trimester, ha!

The thing with my pregnancies is that I hate smells. I hate how everything smells. Poopy diapers. Dog breath. Animal food. Air. I hate it all.

I have gone on a few crazy rampages lately...rampages of getting rid of anything and everything that has a scent.

Laundry detergent, dryer sheets and stain release tabs. Body soap. Kids body soap. Lotion. Bubble bath. No body sprays. Traded in my mint toothpaste for cinnamon. The mint made me despise brushing my teeth.

I'm ready for the 1st trimester to be gone--I am all about having some energy and some sort of life back.

I miss everything!!

Holy Hannah! I don't remember any of that stuff from pregnancy, but then again, it was YEARS ago!

oo girl you can do it! Almost there! Sorry Leo isn't there to get rid of the stinky diapers for you!

I always have a crappy first trimester too.

With Buddy, I would puke every single time I brushed my teeth at night. Every single time. AFter puking, I could brush again and be fine. And my morning brushing was fine too. So weird.

I'm in crazy town right there with you. I have to look away from the TV when they talk about any food. And, the thought of some food sends me over the edge.

Sorry Leo isn't there to take out the stinky diapers. Maybe it's time to make use of Isabella as your helpy-helper!

Luckily the first trimester is temporary (for the most part) wishing you a scentless few months!

I hope it moves past quickly for you!!! The middle three are the best, huh?

OMG congrats! How exciting (not that you're feeling sick and can't smell anything, but that you're preggers)!!! Sending you some [unsmelly] thoughts that the first trimester blahs quickly turn into hurrahs!

i won't say "hang in there" bc it didn't make me feel any better when someone said that to me. instead i will say - feel your pain sister. remember it well.

my advice? go spend money :)

i am no help huh?

Mellisa Rock said...

Is it weird that I pity you and envy you all at the same time? Hope that your first trimester passes quickly so you can get started on the energy phase!

I was the same way with smells, especially with my first pregnancy! And this chick in my office at the time used to burn the WORST candles in this small office area that we all worked in. I finally had to tell her to cut it out or I was going to vomit in her office. I'm usually a nice person but not always when pregnant... ;)

Hope you can feel more "normal" soon!!

Joy said...

I remember those days all to well. We still don't really have candles in our house anymore (maybe boxed somewhere) which I used to love to burn nor do I even own more than one bottle of perfume from that time. I hope the rest of your first trimester goes by quickly and you feel better soon.
