Good Eats

The fatigue and what I can only think is a slower metabolism leading to nausea is making cooking a chore.

At certain times, I'm so hungry yet the idea of putting food in my mouth makes it dry and the feeling of gagging creeps in.

How can you be hungry and nauseous at the same time? Thankfully, so far I'm not knocked off my shoes by these feelings. I've held myself together for the most part.

It does make me worry about Turkey day dinner. I'm not sure how I'm going to pull it off but I'll try. I've decided to forego the diabetic friendly dinner I had planned since I should avoid man made sweeteners.

I plan to have the traditional setting with a few minor adjustments:
creamed corn
double mash potatoes
smashed potatoes
pumpkin pie

Of course this will be finalized next week. My appetite fluctuates. Originally I wanted to make mushroom stuffing but to be honest, mushrooms are turning me off right now.
Ok, bean, close your eyes.

Since that spotting scare and the fatigue, I'm not cuddling as much as I'd like with DH. Don't get me wrong, I'm extremely attracted to him but I'm so flipping tired and scared of the spotting, I'm reluctant to initiate. I know I have to get through this. This isn't normal for me but how do you tell a pregnant person to relax?
Bean, you sure like potatoes. I had a baked potato today as part of my lunch and you savored every last morsel.

Every since, I've been in a super good mood. The fatigue that usual befalls me around 3:30 isn't here and I'm happy. I'm still warm and acting like a portable space heater but I'm happy.
