Your first trimeter is a lot like living the life of a supermodel.
I eat very small meals every two hours. And I only eat a few strange foods.
Okay, that’s where the similarities end. My first trimester is the exact opposite of glamorous. But I’m trying to maintain a sense of humor as I lie on the couch and stare at the TV, sometimes closing my eyes when the nausea gets too bad to keep them open.
Go hormones. Go!
This weekend I lived off of a tomato pizza, croissants, and Special K cereal. Basically, I’m carb loading – the idea of meat absolutely grosses me out. And I’m drinking gallons of water, because the minute I get the least bit dehydrated I feel horrible.
In the meantime, my TV and I are best friends. It’s the only thing I have the energy to do after surviving the work day. After finishing How I Met Your Mother, I’m now hooked on Law & Order SVU and Arrested Development.
Any suggestions of new TV series I should watch on Netflix? Or new/current shows I can watch on Hulu? I’m running out of ideas and I have several more weeks before I’m due to get my second wind.
