Lemon Drops



So, I'm officially in my 2nd trimester--14 weeks! My baby apparently is now the size of a lemon and has finger prints and makes pee. Just FYI on that one. Sounds gross to me. (I will possibly post a picture to accompany this later.)

In sad sad news--yesterday I had to toss the remaining 4 donuts from KK. They had created ants. I'm not sure how this happens. I probably missed this in Biology 2... when we were asked what would be a good animal/insect to create tests with and I suggested hippos--and my teacher shot me with a water gun and told me "no, fruit flies." I think I dropped that class pretty quickly.

In my weight gain arena--our scale's battery is waining. A few weeks ago it told me I weighed 128 lbs. (Ps. I do not.) Today, it was back in the normal range, but told me I have only gained 1 lbs. Not so sure I trust this with my recent sugar influx. I suppose since there is a dramatic cessation of alcohols it could be possible, but not probable. (Check out THAT scientific-ness.)

Supposedly in the 2nd trimester you regain TONS of energy. Here's the thing. I never lost energy. No extreme exhaustion, no yarfing. I DID have headaches, and still have nosebleeds--gross, I know. I feel the same amount of tired, the same amount of lack of desire to work out, the same craving for sugar (what is up with that?? anything scientific there? can I test a hippo?), same inability to sleep at night. Same disgust with shrimp. Gross.

Book reading obsession--back on track. I'm currently reading "The Help" and LOVING IT!!

Same old crappy vision as always. Someday I want that miracle surgery!

I can't say that I ever got tons of energy back in the 2nd, but I was still yarfing, so it's hard to tell. And can you believe that blogger doesn't recognize "yarfing" as a word? Silly spellcheck. Did you get to the part about how your baby then breathes in the pee and it helps mature the lungs? That's totally weird. As is the basic fact that there is someone peeing inside you. And if it's a boy, someone is peeing out of a penis inside you. Not cool. That's why I'm only having girls.

No need to brag that you didnt lose energy and/or yarf during your first trimester.
