Hubby and I went to the zoo this weekend..

It’s the first “outing” we’ve been on since we came back from our honeymoon..

Let me tell you.. it was a totally different experience than what outings used to be..

Before I got preggers.. I took very minimal restroom breaks (that’s probably cuz I dont’ drink very much of anything.. shhh.. I know that’s soo bad!).  I didn’t have to take snack breaks either.. I was fine with breakfast.. a quick lunch.. and the rest of the day was pretty much easy peasy..

Now that I’m preggers (currently 17 weeks).. hubby heard a lot of the following:

“Ok.. next bathroom we see.. we need to stop..”
“Ok.. next bench we see.. we need to sit..”
“I’m hungry.. and NO.. I can’t wait..”
“I’m thirsty.. ”
(I brought two water bottles.. and drank them BOTH)
“Feed me.”
“Hold on.. I need to sit..”

It was an interesting outing and I have to really give it to hubby for being totally patient with me and all these prego-symptoms.. especially the hunger! 

We enjoyed the visit.. I especially enjoyed watching all the families with their young children looking at the animals.. and all the kiddos getting excited.. we figure that when our child is old enough to start recognizing animals.. we could start taking him/her to the zoo.. I really can’t wait!

I’m hungry.. I’m always hungry.. I’m like a bottomless pit of hungryness..

My starved state leads to over-eating.. I eat too much that I’m about to burst at the seams.. I eat so much that I get scared that I might be squishing my baby with my overloaded stomach.. that’s probably not true.. but that’s what it feels like..

I over-eat.. but then about two hours later..

Hubby:  Are you hungry?
Me:  Ya.. I could eat..

And they cycle starts all over again..

Feed me.

Hello Nausea.. we meet again.

I thought you were gone.. you are supposed to be gone.. I’m entering into my second trimester.. .why are you still here?

You came with another friend, Sleepiness.


What happened to second trimester energy?  It doesn’t look like that’s arriving anytime soon..

I was really excited when you left, and took Sleepiness with you.. I thought I had my life back again..

Hunger did try to replace you.. and I think you two are fighting for my attention.. but sadly, looks like you win again, Nausea..

I guess, in a way.. you’re a reminder of the little one growing in side of me.. you’re reminding me that my body is full of hormones and those hormones are good for keeping the baby in me.. but.. why must you make me feel so blah?!

Besides, I do have other reminders that I’m pregnant.. like.. that belly I’m growing.. that’s a reminder enough..

Well.. looks like it’s you and me again for awhile.. I hope you don’t stay too long..
