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.
