I sniff everything! Especially fabric, the sheets, clothes, my pillow .. something is making them stink! No I didn’t change the fabric softener or laundry detergent but what is that smell? Oh wait … I’M PREGNANT! It’s so crazy really. This is a hard pregnancy for sure. I am still throwing up everyday but its getting better. I can’t eat most anything but live on rice cakes and coca cola. I had a craving for a lemon meringue pie and Rob bought one. Today, so far, I have had two small slices and wow! It helps! I heard lemon is great for nausea and I have to agree. I even got this homeopathic spray that helps and I sniff that stuff. Haha!
The three different medications my doctor has prescribed aren’t doing the trick either but that’s OK. I will get through it!
I do not know who I am right now. I don’t look the same, walk the same, feel the same, think the same .. nothing. This is truly one of the most strangest times of my life and I couldn’t be happier. Rob and I have never been closer. We still hold hands every time we are near each other, smile from ear to ear and are just incredibly happy. I will be 10 weeks on Thursday and it seems so surreal this is all happening. Jonna said it perfectly the other day when I showed her a rocking chair I loved. She said, “It just seems like yesterday you guys were leaving for Prague and now you’re looking for rocking chairs!” Well, it really was yesterday wasn’t it? It’s been a blur.
All my life I really wanted what I have in my life now. For years and years I would look at couples raising children and it seemed foreign to me. I assumed they weren’t really happy and would wonder how long they would last. I guess I was cynical about relationships and thought they were only temporary. Never TRULY serious. Guess what? I was wrong. Rob and I absolutely represent that couple I had always imagined, thought didn’t exist and was only for fairy tales. THIS is a fairy tale and he is definitely my prince but its so very, very real. We cannot wait to meet our bean.
