Hi everyone! Im in the first trimester and only at 6 weeks but I thought itd be fun to share some of the crazy, random, insane thoughts that cross your mind as you go through this pregnancy journey. This is my first time being preggers and all of this is very new including the hormones, insane hunger, and intense irritability. Heres some thoughts ive had today:
“If i dont eat in the next 5 minutes im going to hurt someone or throw up”
“Im never wearing these jeans again im going to throw them in a fire”
“Awww im gonna be such a cute pregnant lady with my cute bump”
(looks in mirror at work bathroom) “Do i look pregnant ALREADY???”
“URGH why does he want to do a date night I JUST WANT TO SLEEP!!!”
“Why am i here on a long weekend friday….why….why…. (despair)”
“WHY IS THIS PAPERTOWEL MACHINE NOT WORKING?? (proceeds to hit the machine, startle oneself and run away from the bathroom)
“Oh no I accidentally spent 100.00 on baby paraphanelia ….”
“MMMM mcdonalds sausage eggmcmuffin…….so goooooooood”
“Im never ever leaving the house without a packed breakfast or lunch anymore.”
I litterally feel bi-polar and insane. And im only at the begining stages. Make me feel better – what crazy thoughts have you had today???

PrincessPerogie: hmmmm lets see. Im 15w1d and a FTM as well…
“how the hell is it 6:20am already that cant be right………..WHHHHYYY DO I HAVE TO GET UP, this is NOT fair, UGH GOD why is THIS not a short week? (sobs to myself) IM so tired (sobs to myself)”
“why dont women get to have part of their pregnancy off work? This is STUPID”
“I feel nauseated I should really shove something in my cakehole before I throw up…but I dont wanna walk downstairs yet” (as Im trying to blowdry my hair)
“I feel like a whale…..I really hope I can go to the bathroom today :(” (if preg constipation hasnt hit you yet….. just wait lol)
“Im starting to look like a whale” (while checking myself out side-on doing my makeup)
sit down at my desk “I really need a nap” (yawn)
“WHY does DH want to have company over tomorrow….I might DIE Im so tired!”
“WHY are all my desk snacks the same (sobs to myself)…..I dont want ANY of them, why universe…why?”
“if I dont eat something RIGHT NOW I will either throw up or die or harm someone”

shanbp: OMG lol i see a reoccuring theme. Love the snacks situation. I had a whole thing with my DH one evenign explaining to him that I need an assortment of snacks for variety or else i will DIE. I went through a whole lsit of acceptable snacks and ideal snacks I would like the kitchen to be stocked with. I think he just wants to avoid having to ever go through that again. Worst 30 minutes of his life, im sure.
I feel better now lol. I havnt had too much problems with the bathroom situation YET but im really hoping it stays that way… i cannot imagine – 🙁

PrincessPerogie: lol ya…. the hunger doesnt stop….. just kinda gets worse and weird because I was having the “in pain” hunger but at the exact same time having wicked food aversions….so I couldnt even really eat much :s I lived on soups and bread/bagels/plain lays chips etc… for a while there. My MS didnt kick in until I was nearing the end of week 7….not a lot of puking just debilitating nausea that felt like I was going to. I still have to go to the other side of the house if meat is being cooked in the house (barf)
The bathroom…its pretty bad lol well more annoying….I guess it comes with the hormones? I was fine and one day bam! After a few days its like OK….im starting to look 6 months pregnant can we get this show on the road? I started incorporating all bran for breakfast (you know…..before “second breakfast” haha) and drink water with it….that typically does the trick….but if you miss a day or 2? look out!
I had a huge bowl this morning so Im crossing my fingers for tonight LOL. Thats so sad

“Ugh, I look like I have a beer-gut. When am I going to get a real bump?”
“Whhhhyyy are we going out of town this weekend?? I have so much to do, and all I want to do is nap!”
“Must. Not. Eat. Candybar….Must wait and eat a healthier snack.”
“Is it weird if I just stick my stomach out in public so I look more pregnant and less just fat?”

shanbp: Oh gawd i hate all bran. Im sorry ill keep my fingers crossed for you today. I dont think ive gotten real MS yet… like i just get HANGRY and ontop of being cranky as hell i end up nauseous until i eat something. But none of the food aversions or cant keep food down thing… i really hope i dont get that. 🙁
SadieBee: “Must. Not. Eat. Candybar….Must wait and eat a healthier snack.”<br /><br />Thats hilarious because that thought litterally goes through my mind maybe 4x a day and obviously chocoalte bar is fille din with somethign else….ie…dim sum…indian food….jamaican patties…im havign alot of ethnic food cravings …and spicy food. Everythign i eat is covered in siracha or chili oil. This is not the norm for me.
And i have thought about stickign out mystomach or rubbing it. lol maybe ill look justifiably out of shape and people will think Im a cute preggo person instead of just out of shape.

PrincessPerogie: I’m jealous of your cravings. I usually LOOOOVE really flavorful, spicy ethnic foods, but I just can’t stand the thought of it right now. Getting Qdoba for dinner last night was about as far out of the bland zone as I’ve ventured in weeks. Hoping that passes soon (along with all food aversions) and I can’t just eat whatever the heck I want!

I’ve debated this…I think I could pull it off now but I hate that awkward stage…kinda still in it. The worst part is its not hard yet….so it does look like a beer gut cause it jiggles!!
I also managed to walk by the FREE popcorn and cotton candy station they had set up at lunch at work :s Im regretting it now but I figured I’d be eating some junk tonight lol

PrincessPerogie: ill cross my fingers for you…..it is NOT FUN! “ok Im starving but everything sounds disgusting…great….saltines for dinner it is”
Im a spice and ethnic food fanatic as well…but havent been able to do anything. I could barely do my own homemade burgers when the MS started because they had “too much flavor” lol. We went camping the weekend after it started…..so effing brutal. Ice cream and grilled cheese are my “good to go’s”
………..I want a grilled cheese RIGHT NOW
I willadd that even though Ive had a lot of food aversions and only snack here and there rather then meals I’ve definatly been consuming lots of calories. I started tracking to make sure and just so happens the things I could/can eat arnt always the healthiest 🙁 BUT duringthose times its just about getting something in no matter what. I thought for sure I was going to be gaining weight but I’ve actually lost 3 lbs since getting pg…..kinda hard to believe. I still claim its the lack of alcohol

shanbp: Grilled cheese with egg, tomatoes, and ketchup siracha sauce have been a staple in my diet for dinner this week. Mainly because ive been too damn exhuasted to cook a proper meal. I did have the energy a coupel of nights ago to pull together a homemade pesto and it tasted divine. Get yo grilled cheese on girl!!
SadieBee: Whats a Qdoba? Sounds super exotic unless thats an autocorrect thing and you mean Quinoa. lol

PrincessPerogie: Oh! Qdoba is a mexican place – kind of like Chipotle. So for me, getting a chicken quesadilla was about as adventurous as my stomach will allow me to be right now.
