baby will be 8 weeks old tomorrow and by our next check up, baby will be 8 weeks and 3 days old. Heh. Excited macam nak mampos.
Anyway, at 8 weeks this are what I am feeling/experiencing so far:
1. Loss of appetite.
Annoying. Because I am known for being ‘gagah’ (strong) when it comes to eating. I eat A LOT. and during the first few weeks of my pregnancy, I ate like a pig. These past few days, I have not been eating well at all eg; I will feel really hungry and start thinking about what I can get from the kitchen. Once I get to the kitchen, look at what’s in store for me, that’s it. Appetite’s gone! And this can go one for the whole day! Sometimes I force myself to eat because I know the baby needs food.
2. A freaking weird taste in my mouth.
Yes, I looked it up and understand that pregnant women are supposed to have a weird metallic taste in their mouth in the beginning of their pregnancy. Well, not quite for me. It is not so much of a metallic taste. It is more of a taste that makes all good food taste horrible. I have it in my mouth at this very moment, although I am not eating anything. I just had 2 glasses of milk and now that weird taste is trying to tell me that that milk I had is going to make me gag. But I won’t gag. Weird, but I think I am going to get used to this pretty soon. Alhamdullilah, I can still take soya bean, milk and all kinds of fruits without any problem at all. (but yes, that mr weird taste will bother me right after I’m done)
3. I only want to Zzzzzzzz……
Yes, I get sleepy ALL the time. In fact, after every meal, I want to sleep. Heehee funny cos right after I had my dinner earlier, I walked to my room in whatever I was wearing (I just came home), carrying my handbag, lie down on my bed hugging my handbag and I fell asleep for 2 whole hours! :p I was wearing jeans for gods sake. I also yawn every single minute when I am in the car or air con room. Even Tatek noticed that. I yawn endlessly whenever I am in his car.
4. I can’t stand hard boiled eggs.
Hard boiled eggs used to be my favourite. I have it with every meal (if possible) and I never got sick of it….until now. Yup, I can’t stand the smell and the sight of it makes me want to puke (WANT TO but I never puke la).
5. I feel heavier than I really am.
Now that the appetite is barely there, I have been eating very little. I get full fast and stop eating the moment I start having breathing difficulty. :p Sometimes, I will only eat a spoonful of rice and that’s it! But what’s weird is that even though I am eating little, my weight seems to be increasing and I feel so heavy after every meal be it a spoonful or a whole plate.
Ok, those 5 are the most prominent changes I see so far. There might be more to come, I shall update as I go along. Time for some reading for myself and for the baby.
