That 1st trimester is full of joy, which I say with both honesty and scarcasm! I love being pregnant and am so excited about the coming addition to our family! However, this pregnancy thus far has proven to be a bit more eventful. As usual, I am dealing with the normal severe exahustion. I wake up tired, take a nap midday with my toddler, and then go to bed tired in the evening. But, I am also struggling with a lot of heartburn. It became so severe recently that I started having trouble eating. When I would try to swallow my food it would feel as if I was choking! It was the oddest thing I have ever experienced. I am on a course of Nexium that should help correct this. I am ready to hit that 2nd trimester already and start getting my baby bump and start getting my energy back!
To add insult to injury, I am fighting my first cold of the season…my wonderful MIL took my daughter for the afternoon so I could rest. I just woke from a nap and I think I am going to take advantage of the peace by finishing up my “Creative Family” book and start “Dirt”.
