I don't want to jinx things, but yesterday....yesterday....I didn't feel awful. Tired, yes. Tired enough that I carved out 30 minutes to go horizontal in the afternoon, yes. But....I didn't have heartburn. I didn't vomit, not even once. I was only mildly nauseous a few times for a short duration. I was able to eat a variety of foods on a regular basis. I had a good night sleep. Oh, my...It's been so long since I have felt miserable for most or part of the day that I am silently and internally jumping up an down for joy. It's amazing how much easier it is to get through the day with work and a toddler and just normal life stuff when you feel almost normal. Sure, a pregnant normal, but normal. Oh, please God. Please. Let this be a trend. I don't have to feel like yesterday all the time right away, but an upward trend would be nice. Please let me have more and more days like yesterday where I could respond to a few emails, make a few calls, actually play a bit with my son, basically able to do more than lie on the couch or the bed feeling worse than one could imagine most of the time and wondering what I had done so wrong in my life to deserve this. Oh, please God, let this be a first trimester event where as I don't feel overwhelmed by life for the rest of my pregnancy and the rest of my life (or at least the next 5 years). Okay, remember, this is said in confidence, in whisper. We must not jinx this.
