You know, up until this point my very occasional nausea really hasn't bothered me... I get a drink of water, breath, and I'm fine. It only hits me once a day if that and only if I let my stomach get empty. But today the timing was unfortunate, we were driving along talking and suddenly I felt THE WAVE and scrambled to find that cup, there was no water to drink, the highway was jiggly, so much for the taco salad. I'm confused about the timing... why have I been more nauseous over the past few weeks, in the second trimester? I feel like if my morning sickness is a month late, it's a sign that my baby will be a month late. Or at least slow.
In more pleasant news we were on our way to work out and that still happened, I did 30 minutes on the treadmill at a slightly more moderate pace but still got my 30 minutes in. Go me. I mean I was fine right after, I just had to get that out. It MIGHT be the new DHA vitamin I took today... vitamins can mess with you, I'm going to avoid it for a few days to make sure that wasn't it. Or maybe weird food? Can't blame everything on pregnancy.
Other highlights of the day: we weighed our guinea pigs! Got a kitchen scale finally and checked them all. You're supposed to do this weekly if you're a good guinea pig owner because weight is the best indicator of health, if they start losing or gaining weight something weird could be going on. So here's where we're at:
- Pinky: 1200
- The Brain: 1150
- Billy: 1050
- Jabba: 1350
Currently reading: Tales from Earthsea by Ursula K. LeGuin. This'll sound stupid maybe but when I went to the library they had this big center display up with a sign that said "Waiting for Twilight? Check these out!" and a few shelves of young adult fantasy/sci-fi. I am against most things Twilight but all the titles on those shelves looked really interesting. I love the idea... some poor librarians are trying to show vampire-smitten teenagers that there's real literature out there. I'm about 1/4 through the book and so far it's just fantastic.
