I'm suddenly remembering things that I'd forgotten I experienced when I was expecting Savy...the extreme thirst, fatigue, having to pee every hour on the hour. I never had morning sickness with Savy, but I did have a lot of nausea. I was always either ravenously hungry or terribly nauseated....no in between....just hungry or nauseated. Same thing this time.
My workouts at the gym are pitiful right now. Dr. Cole (yes, I switched doctors) ok'd me to keep working out just as hard as I had been, but now I just don't have the energy. I intended to get a really great workout today, but I just barely managed to last 30 minutes. All I want to do is sit around and take naps. If I remember correctly, the fatigue eases up some after the first trimester, right?
As for switching doctors, we thought that after Savy's birth with the induction, 9 hours of labor, then resorting to a c-section, 2 failed epidurals, a failed spinal block, and finally having to put me under because I could feel everything they were doing (including when they cut me open)....well, we just wanted to make a fresh start with a new doctor....nothing personal. I like Dr. Cole and think she'll do just fine.
I was craving Mexican food today...particularly El Nopal. I loooovvvee the nachos El Nopal and thought I'd die if I didn't have some tonight. I really wanted some last night but tried to curb it by making quesadillas at home....didn't work out too well. I was extremely queasy the rest of the night....Jon joked "it's really bad when your own cooking makes you sick". Ha ha, Jon.
Anyway, Jon took me and Savy to El Nopal tonight so I could get my nacho craving taken care of. The owner always gives us Savy's meal for free...I guess because we go there fairly frequently. There's another Mexican place in town, but it's not nearly as good. I ate every bite of my meal and probably could've eaten more, but I'm honestly trying to be careful about not gaining too much weight this time around. I've got to limit myself to one meal out per week.
I'm anxiously waiting for something to come in the mail...I really, reeeeaaally hope it gets here before next week. I just got someone the BEST christmas present, and I cannot wait to give it! I don't want to give away the surprise, but I'll tell you guys all about it later.
