Eleven weeks

green and yellow tree

This tree is on my walk to work and is now totally yellow. Only four days later... It proves that time is moving on. I find that I have been so self-centered in the last month or so that I haven't really noticed anything outside my head or home. I don't mean self-centered in the bad way that most people use it. I have been focused inward by the pregnancy and the sickness and my foot's infection. Just taking care of myself the best I can.
Luckily, I have had quite a lot of help. Senor should be renamed Saint Senor. Between dinner and breakfast and letting me just lay down all the time. Wow, not to mention all the normal things he does... Really, if it hadn't been for the tea and oatmeal every morning I think I would have never gotten up except to be sick...
Today I decided my stomach really is bigger. It is all so strange. I am feeling better. You know, eating again. I feel like I might be regaining the use of my brain as well. Feeling terrible is a fully occupying job. I am surprised I got anything done at all looking back on it...
So let us raise a glass to the second trimester. The first one is nearly gone and the fun (or so I hear) is about to begin.

Second Trimester Superwoman Syndrome rocks, and what a treat that you've hit it early! Congrats, and look forward to a nice appetite and the feeling that you can do anything. =)

Glad to hear that you're moving past the initial phase. Things got much better for Erica (and me!) once she got out of the first trimester :)

Congrats on the bun in the oven! Wow. That little baby is so lucky to get you for a mom. I think this might make you an offical "grownup" though..Love to you and the expanding family!
