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.


167 How I miss baking

November 13, 2008

Today when I was baking cookies wih the kids I realized how much I miss baking. I used to bake all our bread for a long time… but I stopped – due to too many babies running around the stove – and eczema. Since then I bake a cake, or cookies, once in a while.. no more.

But today I realized how much I really miss it.. and I ran out to the store with the kids to buy some flour and yeast.. So tomorrow morning I’m gonna bake fresh bread for sabbath!! 🙂 That’s a good therapy when I have a break from studying… And it leaves such a nice smell in the house.. and it’s yummy for sabbath breakfast. Yeay!


¤ 142 Healthy farting

October 24, 2008

The smell of a fart might be not so pleasant, but the fact is – it might be healthy to smell it.

We all recognize it.. the sudden smell around the table, on the bus, at work… etc. The unpleasant smell of the gas is called hydrogen sulfide – and most of us can smell it even in very small concentrations – like in a fart. Yep.. it stinks!! Hydrogen sulfide smells like rotten egg.

Did you by the way ever think about – that every time you smell a fart – that means you have somebody’s bowel contents in your lungs. Eeeww!!

So – now what is this post really about??

Well – studies show that hydrogen sulfide has good effects on high blood pressure – and can even be used as a treatment – and will probably be in the future.

So tell me – are we gonna inhale that medicine?? Would a husband with very bad farts be enough as treatment?
