Why this pregnancy sucks...

I usually don't like to complain about being pregnant. I know that there are lots of people who would kill to be in my shoes, and I don't want to make it sound like I am ungrateful for this, because that couldn't be further from the truth... even if this was an unexpected pregnancy, P and I feel very blessed to be having another baby, and cannot wait to meet the little bean...that being said... I am pretty miserable.

I hit my 10 week mark on Thursday, and so far I can already feel this flying by.. but after being exhausted, throwing up, hormones and some major pains in my back and kidneys... I am just flat out ready to push this baby out. When I was pregnant with Ev, I think I pretty much had a great pregnancy.. sure I was sick, but I got to a point where I could predict when I was going to be sick and what I could eat and couldn't eat, so I felt more in control. This go around.. I'll be standing in the shower and suddenly have to jump out so I can throw up my toast that was the "a-ok" food yesterday, but apparently the baby doesn't like it today. Not to mention I can barely drink water anymore! I'm supposta drink a ton of it and all I do is throw it up, especially if it is cold water. My mom tells me to just keep trying and when I need to do what works for me...then just do it... which is usually Dr. Pepper. Sorry Baby L.

Also my sleep...oh my gosh my sleep!! I remember having a little harder of a time when I was this early with Ev.. but mainly I was paranoid about laying on my stomach, even in the "ok" stages. This go around, laying on my stomach isn't a big deal until that airball of pressure makes me sick and I have to roll over... and I roll straight onto my back, where P is mad cause I am snoring. So I wake up all night rolling and rolling! I think I am almost ready for that pregnancy pillow.

I know it will all end and it will all be worth it when this baby comes, but for now... I just want to sleep and eat whatever I want without throwing up. :) I cannot wait for the beginning stages to end :)

I hate complaining about pregnancy for the same reason! Its so easy for us, and it just doesn't work for some people. I know how awful it is though.. ): Hope you feel better!

Ugh... I absolutely love being pregnant but the puking part sucks. I would do whatever you can to make sure you're getting enough water. I've known a few women in our neighborhood where they puke so much they have to go to the hospital a lot for iv's and at one point one of them had an at home iv because it was the only way her body would stay hydrated. I know most herbal teas are iffy but even just something like hot water and lemon with some honey if cold water makes it worse. Or lots of veggies with high water content. Hopefully you won't get too dehydrated from it all. Let's hope in another month or two it'll ease up! :)
