I cannot believe the week has flown by so darn fast. Let me first tell you that right now is holy hell season at work. That means Amy is super busy and what happens to Amy when she least needs it? STOMACH FLU! Yep....in the June? The funny/odd thing is that not only did I have it, but a coworker, Blake and a fellow prego who uses the same OB all did too... good thing, I'm not too paranoid and didn't freak out (ahem....swine flu anyone?)
Let me tell you.....it's funny how something like this puts things into perspective for you. My body is not just my own. It creates life....it's a short-term hotel stay for Baby B! I was so sick that a trip to the ER to get fluids was around the corner. Luckily, I have this thing called Gatorade to thank. I was able to keep that down and then more and more of it! I would have drank prune juice mixed with a dirt cocktail on the side if I needed to! It all boils down to what I do in turn affects our little nugget.
It's funny how much your life changes before this baby even comes! Don't eat this, don't eat that. It seems that more than just what I eat has changed, like sleeping for one! The way my body reacts to this thing called sunlight (A sunburn? I think I could count on my hands how many times I have been burnt in my life...) Going out with friends (many of our friends still go to out to a bar or somewhere to drink weekly) hanging out with drunk people when i am sober is the last thing I want to do! I think that since were are the first to have kids, our social life will change a lot. I didn't think that it would actually change until just recently. Some days I really miss going out and hanging out with everyone, and others I am happily content at home with Blake and the animals (and the nugget too!)
So, I ask you guys for some feedback. Those of you with kids--how has your life changed? Those without or currently preggo....have you thought about this and how do you think your life will change?
