I think I need to post a current picture of myself so that everyone can see just how pregnant I am. :) I can see a difference in myself, but wearing my thick sweaters here in Alaska hides it pretty well. I don't think it's really obviously yet.
I have a theory about pregnancy sickness, cravings, & food in general. Does it seem like I've only been posting about food lately? I swear it's all I think about lately. That's sad.
Anyway, when I was pregnant with Marley I felt yucky a few days but I wouldn't really say I was sick. I didn't take a sick day. I don't know, maybe my previous co-workers remember it differently. Maybe I didn't take a sick day, but I moped around the office...I don't remember. With Marley, I do not remember having cravings or any type of food fetish. However, this time around I have felt really pretty bad. I'm 12 weeks now and am having good days here and there, THANKFULLY! I have also have had cravings. Crazy food cravings. A couple of weeks ago I was craving Cool Ranch Doritos. I love those. Anyway, I opened the bag and ate a ton of them. I haven't been able to look at them since and I'm kinda sad. I hope I didn't ruin my taste for those Doritos forever.
So....to my theory. My theory is (at least for me) when I'm sick everything sounds disgusting. When I think of something that I think I could actually digest, even if it's weird, I eat it. I've labeled those things cravings. Make sense? Why all the high-fat foods? Probably because I needed more calories to sustain this 2 inch creature inside of me. ha ha :) I don't know. I'm not sure how many more calories you're supposed to eat when you're pregnant or even if it is a signifigant difference. Is it typical to get cravings when you're pregnant even when you're not sick? Any thoughts?
