Well this week I’ve been kind of under the weather. My sore throat has developed into a cough, so I’ve been trying to drink a lot of fluid and eat oranges and stuff and rest, but it’s still persisting and it’s Thursday now…but I don’t think a cough is anything to really start worrying about, especially because I think it’s starting to get better. I’ve been having these gagging coughs that are annoying but luckily I have Keola to take care of me. He’s been so wonderful as usual.
Ok so you mommies are gonna laugh at me, but it’s just amazing how something so TINY can be so DISRUPTIVE! I swear it’s bigger than what it is. I’ve had a pretty smooth first 9 weeks, but just in the last couple days I’ve noticed my digestive system slow WAAAAY DOOOOWWWN. I swear I’ve still got last night’s dinner in my stomach, and it’s almost lunch time the next day. Gross. I feel so heavy and weighed down. Plus this morning I work up with a sore throat, and I think because my throat is swollen it’s really hard to take my pre-natals. I managed to get one pill down, but the other one I take is large jelly-ish pill and it’s just not happening. I keep throwing it up. So I was cruising online trying to find an image of what a 9 week old fetus looks like, and yeah….it’s itty bitty but man it’s throwing me out of whack! It’s so exciting though to see how quickly it’s developing.
