That's My Girl

The fact that Trina is pregnant only seems real to me in small sporadic flashes. I'm still in shock that it "took" on the first try. It's a little less surreal for her considering her list of pregnancy symptoms is growing everyday. Her breasts are tender and her emotions are on overdrive. Yesterday she told me she was on the verge of killing someone and crying in no particular order. I told her she was pretty. :) She's been getting nauseous off and on. She has no interest in eating baked goods and has an all out food aversion to both donuts and brownies. This wouldn't be a big deal if she didn't work in a bakery. Yesterday she had to have another girl restock the donut case for her and gagged when she had to cut up brownie bites for people to sample. She's been craving tomatoes and pickles. Pickles may seem like a classic pregnancy craving, but I'm not convinced that this isn't just her normal pickle craving. My girl can put away some brine soaked cucumbers. Trina's really been impressing me by eating healthy and avoiding processed foods. On top of that, she's walking 2 miles and doing an hour of prenatal yoga nearly every morning. My baby-to-be has an amazing mama.

Practice taking deep breaths and slowly counting (or whatever it is that calms you down)...

I hope she is better at being pregnant than I was... I am lucky Amy is still here, I sucked at the whole pregnancy thing (all but the making an amazing baby part)...
