    Public identity

    The thing with social media is that it forces everyone to decide on a public identity whereas before one could just live life carefree of the watchful eyes of those further away.

    Things I didn’t know about Pregnancy

    Things I didn’t know about pregnancy, or which I thought was myth, until I became pregnant.

    1. I really do like pickles a whole lot more now than I ever have in the past. Thankfully, my mom grew a batch of cucumbers in her backyard and has been enjoying canning and fermenting so we have pickles in abundance.
    2. Always forgive pregnant people!!! Hormones are crazy and anything I say or do really should be completely forgiven if inappropriate. I have never wanted to curse-out my neighbors before for things like playing their television or radio too loud, but trust me, my patience has been wearing thin. Also, if I seem uninterested in your life because all I can talk about is being pregnant, it really is not the case. There are so many changes happening when pregnant that it’s super overwhelming. I still care about you, but my brain can’t focus because it is still processing, “there is a growing baby in your uterus!”
    3. I feel super attached to my husband, like I can’t do anything without him. I am the definition of clingy. I feel like I love him even more and thankfully he is enjoys my new-found comfort with PDA. He comes home every-day to “Oh my gosh, it’s weird how much I missed you today. I’m so glad you’re finally home!”
    4. I don’t feel like I’m pregnant, I just feel like I’m getting FAT. I know everyone says “I can’t even tell you’re pregnant” but that just makes me feel worse because I have a very apparent pooch happening over here and before I had a nice FLAT stomach. I had a flat stomach and I didn’t even realize something was happening to my body until I started having a hard time getting my abs to tighten! I’m not trying to brag here, but it’s like I’m going through puberty all over again but it’s occurring within just a few weeks rather than a few years.
    5. Food is so frustrating. After I get sick (nice way of saying vomit), I am soOo hungry afterwards! Not just hungry, but I am angry that I spent so much energy trying to eat something and it just came right back up again! This is seriously one of the most frustrating things. This forces emotions to come up that are seemingly an over-reaction. I have laid my head in my husband’s lap and just criiiiiieeeed my little heart out saying, “I don’t want to be pregnant anymore!” This reaction happens also when I get acid reflux in public and have to hold in my discomfort until we arrive home and are in private.
    6. Even if my husband is growing a belly at the same rate as me, there is no way I would ever call him lazy. I feel so bad sometimes because he has a billion things to do now that I am basically bedridden until the second trimester comes and textbooks say I should start feeling better. I am happy when I can do things for him or when I see him relaxing with a beer and a baseball game on TV (which has yet to happen since he has school, work, and me to deal with).

    Nate is such a good husband. I really appreciate him making me my weird cravings.

    Pregnancy cravings: HI salad

    3 cans mandarin oranges
    2 bags mini marshmallows
    1/2 medium container sour cream
    1 jar un-stemmed maraschino cherries
    1 small can crushed pineapple
    2 containers cool whip

    Things I miss #pregnancy

    1. Beer! Oh man. And Mimosas!!!
    2. Sashimi.
    3. My clothes; nothing fits anymore so I always end up looking like a bum in sweats.
    4. Sleeping through the night. I get up to pee at 3am and 5am and occasional am awake in between with acid reflux. No wonder pregnant people are tired all the time.
    5. Spa water, like onsens and jacuzzi and steam rooms.

    So far, these are the only foods that haven’t made me vomit.

    My mother-in-law (1 of 2) made Chinese mochi and brought it over for me! A whole container full! Mochi is my go-to since being preggerz and I am barely able to eat anything. Clearly I already started eating some, hence the empty spaces. Yum! So soft! I have no doubt that I’ll be mochi faced by the end of this journey. :) #coconut #peanuts #mochi

    Rly good audiobook. :) I wanna get the actual book to read now. Apparently this book was originally published for Omf international in the 1960’s. It’s based off a series of talks and he mentions Hudson Taylor quite a lot. #omfinternational #omfintl #hudsontaylor

    This morning I begged Nate to take me to get Anthony’s cookies and he said, “are you sure? You always want it when you feel good but later you’ll feel horrible.” They have gluten free cookies now so major WIN for me!
