8 weeks 5 days pregnant

I never thought I’d go this long between posts once I got pregnant…but there just isn’t a lot to say. I just wrote in my Geddes diary Teresa and Fran bought me when we went to Melilla last year.

The food thing is the same…I’m kinda hungry all day long, but nothing in the house looks very appetizing. I’m making do, but I’m looking forward to moving back to America (in three weeks!!!!) and eating out a good bit more! I have no particular cravings…I just have to root around in the pantry every few hours and pick what seems the least offensive to me. It’s funny, but I don’t like butter on my muffins or biscuits anymore…I thought it might just be the butter we bought locally, but I tried some from Rota and it tastes just the same. It’s too dairy-y for me for some reason. Also, chocolate really holds no temptation for me! I used to be able to solve all problems by eating a piece (or several) of chocolate/almond bar, but I haven’t had a piece in a week or more. Hmmm….

I’m still sleeping just as much. And it still takes me just as long to fall asleep…but once I do I sleep soundly.

Tj’s out picking up groceries after his horseback ride. His last ride will be next week, so we’re still planning on having a picnic (Yay!). I told Cindy that I’m not making the orange curd like I’d hoped…I made it last week (or the one before) using the recipe for lemon curd…it tasted like custard. I need to add more oranges, but I don’t know how many. I’ll just make a chocolate cake with chocolate icing and leave out the curd I was hoping to put in the middle.

We’ve had a sudden thunderstorm this evening…lost of wind, grey clouds, and now rain.

Well, that’s it for the day.

  1. I am 7 weeks pregnant, and experiencing the same thing. This will be my first pregnancy, and I’m very scared. The father has nothing to do with me or the baby, so I’m pretty much on my own, and I’m only 17. Any advice from anybody would be great. Thank you!


  2. I AM 8WEEKS 3 DAYS PREGNANT. I AM 34 AND THIS IS MY SECOND PREGANCY. MY FIRST, IS NOW A 17 YEAR-OLD AND I AM SCARED TO DEATH, EXCITED BUT SCARED.

  3. Now that it’s over I can offer you some assurance. The birth was great and the baby is wonderful, too! I love being a mother. Youíve already been through the hard part…even though itís been ages Iím sure itíll come back to you once that baby comes and you get going.
