Q: When are you due?
A: October 4, which puts me at 15 weeks along.
Q: How have you been feeling?
A: Pretty good for the most part. I've been insanely tired, but it's finally started to ease up. I think that Ben is getting tired of me going to bed at 9:30 every night :) There's been nausea, but it usually felt comparable to being kinda car sick. Again, it's easing up.
Q: How is Ben doing with all this?
A: Don't let last post's picture deceive you. Although he looks a little dazed and out of it, I think it's because he had taken an Ambien about 30 minutes prior. Really, he's been great. I expected him to have a little freak out after getting the positive test, but he's been a trooper. He's way excited for a baby and refers to it as "The Bun."
Q: It's just one baby, right?
A: Yes, although at our first ultrasound, the tech thought that it was twins. I nearly had a heart attack! She couldn't tell for sure, so she had me come back for another look two days later. Luckily, she was able to confirm that it was one baby in there, not two. Not that there's anything wrong with twins- hello, I'm obsessed with Taylor's girls- but I had barely gotten used to the idea of one baby in there, let alone two!
Q: Any weird food cravings or aversions?
A: When I was 6 weeks, I had a 3 day stretch where I couldn't get enough Wendys. Since then, there haven't really been any cravings. Strangely enough, I kind of have an aversion to ketchup. This is very depressing to me, since ketchup was my favorite thing about fries and burgers. I can eat it and all, but it really doesn't sound the best.
Q: Anything else?
A: I've had some crazy dreams so far... most recently about a man with a wooden eye who broke into my house and was trying to kill me. When I tried to chop him up with a kitchen knife, he turned into my cat Oscar. Also, my pants are starting to get tight already! I blame this on my insanely short waist. Seriously, when you have no torso there is nowhere for the baby to go but straight out.
