Okay so I just have a few things to say about early pregnancy (in hopes that things will get better in the future)... it is such strange experience. Like, I'm really not myself these days. For instance, the only foods I ever crave (which is a rare occurrence these days anyway) is something nasty that I wouldn't dream of eating otherwise. I have been known to have hankerings for taco bell mexican pizzas and top ramen of all things! It's insane. Why am I never in the mood for something delicious and nutritionally dense? Cafe Rio--why not you? Another strange thing is the extreme sensitivity of my senses. Never have lights seemed so bright, voices seemed so loud, burnt food smelled so strong-- it's crazy. The worst part is my aversion to Jordan. My poor husband who slaves away waiting on me absolutely revolts me these days... it is so sad:(. It's mostly his smell (which is strange because that's usually something I love most about him)... he will want to come give me a hug or something, but it won't last for 3 seconds before I have to tell him to go away because I might be sick. Pregnancy has definitely rocked our worlds, but we know that in a strange way, this is preparing us for things to come. We know that having a child will change things--a lot! So, although it's hard, we are grateful for the lessons Heavenly Father has taught us during this time.
