Pregnancy Blog Week 6 – The Crazy Pregnant Lady
What does that do for ya? The smell of eggs sent me racing to the bathroom and refusing to come out until my husband had opened all the windows/doors and power washed the kitchen.
“DO NOT MAKE EGGS.” “I WILL KILL U IF U MAKE EGGS.” “SEE WHAT HAPPENS IF U MAKE EGGS.”
These were signs I believe I hung around the kitchen at about six weeks pregnant. I KNOW THEY’RE NOT LOGICAL AND I DON’T CARE.
Can you say “hi, crazy pregnant lady!” Your hormones are basically BERZERK right now, and so is your bladder…and probably your stomach. And it is all normal. Threatening your huz/bf lately? Also totally normal.
Motherhood is so beautiful, amiright?
Morning sickness is one of the tell tale signs of pregnancy. Admit it, one of your friends is sick in college and the first thing you assume is they’re pregnant.
The thing about morning sickness is it isn’t always just in the morning, either. Sometimes it can be all day, every day. It is a combination of hormones, making a baby, and a stronger sense of smell.
There are many things you can do to aid you in this glorious gift that is morning sickness:
- Take your pregnancy vitamin with food
- Drink lots of water/carbon-y soda like sprite or ginger ale
- Suck on Preggie Pops (or anything sour)
- Eat protein
- Avoid fatty, fried foods
- Smell yummy stuff (Lovely Lavender Lotion by Wild Carrot)
What’s little peanut up to right now: developing eyes, nose, mouth, and ears.
Tip of the week: See list above, seriously…. reread it if you’re struggling 😉
