it's been a pretty tough first three months... feeling extremely exhausted (napping every single chance i get), and deathly nauseous. when i was pregnant with dom, i knew exactly what i wanted to eat: beef teriyaki, kimchi, burgers, and salads. and what not to eat: anything chicken - that's it!
this time around, my food aversion varies from day to day and the list is growing daily. mostly, i detest garlic (this is my all-time favorite, which makes me extremely sad. because i can't have anything with a trace of it), beef, the smell of any cooking (if i don't smell it in the cooking stage, i'll most likely eat it - this is a major problem when going to restaurants), oranges, coconuts, and strong smells. i also can't have any canned food or ramen - i can actually taste the preservatives from it. though, i do love salads, ambrosia apples, grilled cheese sandwiches, chicken dishes, and plain oatmeal with mashed bananas.
despite the uncomfortable moments, i find myself on cloud nine, and feeling so beautiful. it's a great time in our lives right now. dom kisses my belly every morning, saying, "good morning baby" - he's going to be such a great big brother.
i would also like to say "congratulations" to those who are expecting, i know of a few!!! i'm so happy for all of you!
for now, have a great weekend!
(i promise to be back on a regular blogging schedule as soon as my symptoms ease - lol)
