Somehow, amazingly, I brought Seattle weather to WI and back in the pacific northwest they are going through the heat wave that I was anticipating here! It's been rainy and barely 70 degrees every day I've been here. Having planned on spending every day either pool side or out in the yard, it's put quite the damper on our festivities.
So, the highlights so far? Well, let's see. I call the local custard place every day to inquire as what the flavor of the day is (or the F.O.D. as I have grown fond of calling it). I'm a picky custard eater, so today's chocolate chip cookie dough was the first time I was able to partake in the F.O.D. Hmmm, what else. I bought two pieces of make up yesterday-- and got a free mascara! I haven't worn much make up, well, ever, but now that I'm a gigantic pregnant woman with clear skin (finally!) I can partake in a little make up wearing. I got all dolled up today for our exciting day of lying on the couch, going to the playground and eating custard.
Tomorrow I am excited to make a frozen key lime pie in anticipation of my relatives making a drive to visit us on Wednesday. We will also be going to an indoor water park tomorrow night, because damn it!, this weather won't stop us from swimming!
I have been feeling a little bit better, with the belly pains, but every morning my nausea/morning sickness comes back pretty strongly. It sucks. I can't figure out what is going on, because this wasn't happening back home. I think lying around to make it go away is actually making the problem worse, but I don't really have much else to do here! Sigh. I have been doing a half-assed attempt at practicing my hypnosis tape, as well. Mostly because I feel so blah and I'm just not getting in to it. I also don't have a good time/place to do it. I tried to do it last night and just ended up kind of dozing off half way through it. I need to carve out time during the day. I'm going to be the worst hypnobirther ever!
