This pregnancy has been a roller coaster. Oh I wish I could say a fun one (actually I never really liked those rides) but it has been crazy. I don't know if that is the perfect word, but sure, it will do.
|On my birthday on the Garda lake. Our first outing in a long time. For obvious reasons. My nausea attacks. At least I had a gorgeous view:)|
Since, I'm on the topic of changes, I might add that my boobs are sore as hell, I gag about 50 times per day, (sometimes from the smell of my shampoo, the toothpaste in my mouth, to the smell of pasta on the stove) I have become the pickiest eater alive (okay maybe I"m exaggerating) but I cant wait to be able to eat like I had before! Reading back on this blog it sounds like I am going through hell, but I reassure you, that I am happy, scratch that, we are happy. There is always the scare when the doctor might say, something like "genetic disease" or "oversized bladder". But our baby is perfect. (knock on wood, I feel terrible writing that but I am a mother to be and I just hope all goes well)We even have pictures of its face! The sex we wont be able to find out until right before we leave for the states. I am so excited!! (about the states and finding out the sex, even though we know it's a girl… watch it be a boy)
It is definitely hard being away from my family and friends while going through this roller coaster ride, but I am so fortunate to have Marco and his family and our group of friends here…
I have been struggling to find a midwife and the approach on pregnancy the medical world has me under, buuuut that will be for another post. I am off to make dinner of potato curry over basmati, hopefully I'll have at least one bite: OH and a baby bump picture is to come as well:) Buona serata or afternoon depending on where you are!
