Feeling icky

Edited to clarify:

Ok, so I went from feeling no unpleasant side effects of being pregnant to feeling decidedly icky in one day – yesterday!  It feels like a hangover (but isn’t) that just won’t go away.  Well I suppose this (entire pregnacy) is a result of too much alcohol too…..  We are blaming a night filled with red wine and dart games.  We have jokingly said if it is a girl we need to call her Arabella after the bottle(s) of wine we had (on the night we think we concieved). 

But dammit all!  I am just hoping and praying that I don’t get Morning Sickness as bad as my mom had it with me.  She was vomiting for 9 months.  The day after she had me she was a kilogram lighter than the day she fell pregnant, so much for picking up weight.  The bonus is that she has never picked that weight back up again.

But I am confident – it is not going to happen to me.  I am not going to be sick for 9 months, or even 9 weeks, hopefully not even 9 days.  The power of positive thinking……  Normally I am pretty good at it, and will myself not to get flu or a cold or whatever and it usually works.  Hopefully it works with this too. 

Also my running and stuff has taken a bit of a back seat.  Not so much because I am pregnant, more because it has been so flippen cold (for us) that I just can’t face heading out in that weather.   I have decided that I will not cycle till after I have had the baby.  I don’t want to fall of or anything like that.  However, I am really excited about getting back in the pool though.  I have heard it is good whilst preggies and just as well I thoroughly enjoy it.  This weekend there is a midwinter 1 km ocean swim race, but I am a bit chicken for cold weather and water.  I should maybe do it though.  I don’t think I will fit in my wetsuit this summer.

I am going for my first scan on Monday – quite excited.
