259 So now we know what it’s like

October 7, 2009

So.. here we are.. almost 8 weeks done of the pregnancy. And now I know what the morning sickness is like this time. I had a very hard time for a week around the 6th-7th week. Constantly nauseaus and exhausted. It didn’t exactly help that I from one day to another had to stop drinking coffee. I can’t stand even the smell anymore. I had the same problem in my last pregnancy.

Now.. as long as I sleep enough – which means 8-10 hours a night.. and can take a nap daytime + keep eating all the time – I’m feeling quite ok. Though if I don’t sleep enough and don’t eat all the time I’m sick sick sick.

The problem with the constant eating is that I’ll probably gain a lot more weight this time than with the girls. With them I gained only the weight from the pregnancy itself. I was back to myself the same day they were born.
I’m also craving “bad things” this time.. like hamburgers, pizza, fried food, candy etc. Hubby says I’m craving manly food – so it’s probably a boy this time.. And he is right that this pregnancy is more like the one I had with our son than the ones with the girls. So maybe we really do have a boy this time… we’ll see.

Now I just can’t wait until we’re done with the first trimester. I’m so sick of being sick all the time.

258 Weird preggo dreams

September 29, 2009

When I’m pregnant I always get all these strange dreams.. they are mainly of two different kinds.

The first kind, the ones I have the most – throughout the whole pregnancy – is those about hubby – where he does things he didn’t think through, or just simply bad things.. or I dream about us having a fight.. and then I wake up all furious and can’t even look at him.. sometimes the “feeling” stays for hours – even though I know that he didn’t do anything.

The “funny” thing is that we never ever fight.. I mean this should be normal if that’s how I many times feel about him. But the truth is I don’t. We never fight.. it’s been at least two years since the last time.. probably more.  He almost never disappoints me.. So why do I keep dreaming these wierdo dreams when I’m pregnant??

The second kind of dreams is when I dream about the sex of the baby even before I know it. I don’t remember having any specific dreams from when I was pregnant with our first child.. but from the second pregnancy I do. I dreamt that I was in the hospital and gave birth to a girl. And then when they put her in that transparent plastic box where the babies sleep in the hospital – they where out of pink cards for girls. So they had to take a blue boys-card and write girl on it. To me it was a disaster!! This is funny since I really don’t care about girls- vs boys-colors.
When she was born – she was a girl – and they were NOT out of pink cards. 🙂

Even before I was pregnant with our third child I had a dream that I would have two girls who looked more or less the same – only different ages – plus the little one was blonde.. and now I mean really white hair.

And what happened.. we had another girl – and she is all blonde. My dream came true.

So.. anybody else with weirdo pregnancy dreams?? Tell me your story!!
