Just Another Reason....

.... I love love love my husband. If you'd like to be re-visit my other ode to hubby posts go here and here :)

Ugghhhh yesterday was just NOT a good day for me. If there is any truth in that pregnancy glow, it sure wasn't with me yesterday. More like pregnancy green. As in I'm quite sure my face was green all day. After my traumatic shower experience, it just didn't get much better. I'll spare you from details.
Hubs is going through some pretty strenuous training and hardly gets a moment to himself. Clearly he's gone learning Army stuff all day long with a very short lunch break, but then comes home and is doing homework/studying/paper writing with just a break for dinner, then goes to bed. So imagine my guilt, when yesterday I could barely pull myself together to relieve my ever insistent bladder, never mind cook dinner.
Not only does he not complain a bit about any of this... but yesterday he stops by the store to pick me up all kinds of sick girl goodies. You know... ginger ale, saltines, lemon heads (I heard sucking on a lemon flavored hard candy helps). Then came home and heated up (there's gotta be a better way to say that...grrrr) leftover lasagna from the night before, and even kissed my disgusting self! Plus, he refuses to let me feel a second of guilt, reassuring me of how hard I'm working.
Love. That. Man. And one day, when this nauseousness eases up, he will eat like a king again :)

I swear I'm not looking for sympathy comments, so please don't feel like you have to leave them. Really, there's just nothing else going on in my life at them moment, sooooo guess what you get to here about :) And I really do look forward to blogging about more positive aspects... promise!

Lemon Heads! I always had those with me for the first two trimesters (unless Doc ate them all...) They really did help me.

Charity said...

That is so sweet!! I used to have KS pick up lemons from the store and I would eat those to help calm my stomach.

Steph said...

Sounds lovely. ;) Hope you feel better soon!

You'll feel better soon. And then when nesting kicks in... whew! You'll be cooking MULTIPLE dinners. For better words.. warming... refreshing... enjoying the fact that lasagna is always better the next day.

I like it when hubbys do good things. :)

P.S. My little sister is preggo and she was having hard time showering too. The doctor recommended she turn down the heat of the water because the hot water makes your blood pressure rise and that's what makes you throw up... or something like that. It was something told to me by my sister... so the medical reason why could've been lost in translation. But I'm positive it was the hot water.

girl...look...its not about sympathy..its about empathy. I've lived it. Still kind of am. I mean, here at 24 weeks I still feel like crap most days! its your life..it will take OVER your life...and when you have to blog about DONT FEEL BAD--it is your blog ;) also, lemonheads were a fave for me for a while...but then I got sick of them. They did, however, help me get through the day teaching and that sick feeling that overwhelms you. Oh, and if it makes you feel any better--I had a 'shower experience' too :)

Awe, I hear there are down sides to pregnancy as well as the upsides. I have babies on the brain and look forward to reading your posts. Lets me know what to expect hehe

JG said...

Aw, what a sweetie! I have to say, Trey is setting high standards for any future fathers ;)

I have to say, your hubby sounds like one heck of a guy. It is true about the Lemon and calming your stomach, and try turning down the temperature of the hot water. Hot water makes your blood vessels swell, ie get bigger, which makes your blood pressure drop, and that is possibly why you had the feeling of throwing up.

I'm sorry to hear you had such a rough day! I hope you get to feeling better soon!

The Rest is Still Unwritten said...

Aww, i'm sorry to hear you are sick! And i'm sure despite it all, you are still glowing!

My old boss used to eat hard peppermints or drink peppermint tea. She said the mints would calm her tummy and the tea (warmed) would help her fall asleep at night.
