July 23 - 17 weeks

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

I wish there was more to share in the last couple of weeks. I still feel basically the same. I'm sleeping a lot and vomiting. It's like my ability to deal with stress, which was considerable prior to pregnancy, has completely disappeared.

I've started looking at "baby stuff"; strollers, cribs, change tables, diaper bags, etc. It's so overwhelming I feel like I can't even look. This is so not like me. Moreover, most pregnant ladies love doing this kind of thing, or so I was told. I don't even want to do it. There are too many options, too many things to plan and do and I'm not feeling all glowy and wonderful. I feel massively bloated; that's about it.

I so wish I was one of those blissful pregnant ladies. I'm just not.

Husband and I started thinking of names, writing down options. This is way more difficult than I predicted. Thank everything for the best ob/gyn (and his staff) that keeps me on track.
