My pregnancy emotions are OUT OF WHACK with my third child. I feel as if I am on a roller coaster, a pregnancy roller coaster of emotions. I have good days (high) and bad days (low) – and then others I feel like I am going thru the loopy loop – oh the ride of life.
Pregnancy is a roller coaster, of many sorts: emotions, energy, appetite, cravings, nauseousness, did I mention EMOTIONS?
I’m in Atlanta for work. The flight was a joke. The turbulence and nausea are NOT a good combination. I’ve spent the last 6 hours holed up in a hotel room experiencing the other issues.
Tired? I have this new on-demand narcolepsy thing I can do. I think SLEEP – wham I can sleep!
Appetite & Cravings: I couldn”t eat anything during the day. I bought food, but the sick stomach wouldn’t let me eat. Then comes dinner. Hunger sat in. I enjoyed quesadillas dipped in onion soup. My husband said “write that down for the books”. With Z, I loved cottage cheese and A-1 sauce. With E, I actually ate chips a hoy with curry.
Emotions: OH lovely emotions. Today I actually caught myself CRYING to a freaking WALMART commercial. With E I cried to On-Star commercials – but those people were stuck in a car. Well apparently, Walmart’s new approach of giving your college kids who are leaving home the room they want in college has triggered my tear ducts. ALL THE TEARS – how sad is that? A commercial making me cry. Oh pregnancy. Oh emotions. Why can’t you just control yourself, as if there isn’t enough going on wild style with my body, you have to visit now as well?
Oh the joys, the ups and downs – and this is only the beginning. I guess I better make sure my buckle is snapped and get ready to enjoy the ride.
