I am in a much better place mentally than I was last week...my friend totally changed my perspective of how I was approaching this whole being pregnant thing. She explained I was wasting time worrying so much about what could go wrong & missing what was going right...she said if I wasn't careful, I'd miss the whole joy of being pregnant. The lightbulb went off! There isn't anything more I can do to keep my little tadpole happy except be happy myself!!
Once that realization dawned on me, I have been very much enjoying everything! The sickness, the tender boobs, the tiredness...all reminders of how blessed I am!! Oh, that & the HPT I do every couple of days, just to double check...yup, still preggers. :)
I am having some minor doubts that Tadpole is really mine though...s/he doesn't seem to like chocolate or sweets!!! I'm not really experiencing any cravings, just really hungry...but if I even THINK about eating chocolate or sweets, I feel like I'll gag!! Now, I have always had a sweet tooth & chocolate, pastries, cakes, etc have been my vice & at time my reason for living, lol! So feeling such strong aversion to all things sugary & sweet is very strange!! But a good thing, I guess since now I'm not tempted to over-indulge...I even thought maybe it was all in my head so yesterday I bought an Aero bar & ate it...bad idea!!! To say the least!!!
I have another dilemma...my hair. I coloured it just before my IUI but the roots are coming in now which I could handle, except so is the grey...so I did some internet research & some sites say it's okay to colour your hair as long as it's in a ventilated area, some sites are four score against it, some say the non-permanent ones are okay, some say none are safe...so I asked the pharmacist yesterday & he made a good point, there's no sure evidence either way so better safe than sorry, don't do it. That's a bummer! I'm gonna look pretty haggard come December!! If anyone has any suggestions or advice on this, I'm all ears!!
