I’m finally starting to feel the physical effects of Baby. The past 12 weeks have been a cinch compared to this week. I’m nauseated more often with full-on vomiting episodes, lightheaded due to low blood pressure, with bouts of motion sickness. Mix that in with my fatigue and immobility. The stabbing ligament pains happen more frequently and leave me debilitated for a few seconds. I’m hungrier more often, I’m always parched, and whatever hydration I do take in, I immediately have to pee out. I also had my first experience of Braxton Hicks contractions which scared the bejewels out of me.
Pregnancy is not for the faint of heart.
