Week 12: Plum

So I've missed writing about the last few weeks, but things have been fairly consistent around here. My nausea has really let up a lot and so long as I eat on a regular basis, I feel just fine. There are still a handful of foods that don't sound too appealing, but for the most part, I've been able to eat a much wider variety. Well, except for at night. Breakfast and lunch I feel almost normal. When it comes to dinner time, some switch goes off and the nausea comes back. Which doesn't really work out too well for Seth. He's had a lot of macaroni and cheese and ramen noodles lately. Although, I do try to cook when I can.

The larger pants I bought several weeks ago are already getting too tight. Looks like it's time to start looking for some maternity pants. I can't wait for that elasticy goodness... I'm wishing I could wear my stretchy pajama pants to work!
Now for a couple weird pregnancy symptoms. Starting several weeks ago my legs would itch like crazy, especially when going to bed at night. I put lotion on in the morning and thought it was just due to the dry winter air. But nothing was helping! Like clockwork as soon as I got in bed my legs, especially my shins and calves would just itch like crazy! I finally checked it out and sure enough... it's one of those random things that shows up. Good news is, I found some new lotion (Curel Itch Defense) that seems to be controlling the itchiness way better.

Also rearing it's ugly head this week is a sensitive tooth. I just went to the dentist like two weeks ago and my teeth were fine, but somehow overnight I have this tooth that is ultra sensitive. I'm hoping this is one of those things that doesn't spread and/or get worse. And yes, apparently sensitive teeth during pregnancy are pretty common. Who knows what'll show up next?
