The Craziness of Pregnancy

So I have definitely experienced things about pregnancy that are just plain CRAZY!

For instance, I can only eat things once. For example I was craving a corndog with mustard, but once I ate one corndog, I was done. Couldn't eat another and haven't craved it since. One day, a fajita salad sounded so good for lunch, but the next day, it sounded disgusting. So I can eat the tings I crave once, and then its gone.

Crazy #2) Fruit! I can only eat apples and bananas. All the fruit tastes good, but then it makes me sick. I first got sick off plums, which I found out are very acidic so I guess the baby just didn't like them. Today, I ate a delicious, sweet peach....30 minutes later - SICK! Pineapple - SICK! Literally, the only fruit I can keep down is apples and bananas...oh, and grapes.

Crazy #3) Sleep! Now, I have heard that you are just exhausted your first trimester, but I literally sleep around 10 to 11 hours EVERY night, and I still have to nap in the afternoon just to make it through the day. I mean when they say exhausted, they mean plum worn out exhausted!

Crazy #4) The smells! There are smells that have never bothered me, but now they make me sick. Example #1 - the smell of beef; Example #2 - vanilla lotion (the smell of vanilla I'm fine with, I just can't handle vanilla lotion); Example #3 - dog breath (Dax has pretty clean teeth and his breath has NEVER bothered me before, but now I cannot stand to smell it).

The things that pregnancy does to your body is just crazy, but I guess its all worth it in the end!!!
