It took me a week to recover from food poisoning. I only managed to eat a few bites at every meal, and all the fatigue of my first trimester came back to haunt me. I went to bed by 9pm every night and woke up at 7am. The whole week was one big daze.
So here’s the update.
I’m exactly 17 weeks and 2 days along in my pregnancy.
Apparently, the baby is the size of an iPhone. Imagine an iPhone 5 swimming around inside of you.
The food poisoning set me back 5 pounds. I was tracking along at a pound a week, but now I’m back down to 95 pounds, for a 10 pound pregnancy gain. I’ve got some catching up to do!
I’ve got a rash all around my tummy. A rash or blackheads or bumps. I don’t know exactly what it is, but it’s gross and extremely itchy. I’ve got acne on my face, my chest, and all over my back. I’m constantly scratching myself.
As much as I love this time of year, I haven’t been able to enjoy it much. Someone snapped a picture of me and Dean in the middle of SantaCon in Union Square when we were on our way to another holiday event. Don’t I look a little green?
My poor hubby was only in town for 36 hours. He’s traveling again for work, but will be back at the end of the week. Sigh.
Have you ever had food poisoning?
What calamities did you suffer during pregnancy?
Have you ever participated in SantaCon?
