First, if you’re not up to date, please read last Friday’s post. Spoiler: I’m pregnant (8.5 weeks).
Moving on…I have finally felt sort of normal the last several days. I bought these psi acupressure bands on Friday and have been wearing them nonstop since then. I’m not sure they’re really helping; they definitely didn’t at first, but now that I’m feeling a bit better, maybe they are? And now I’m afraid to take them off. I’ve also got a more consistent “food schedule” down now, which helps. It’s so counterintuitive to me to EAT when I’m feeling sick, but I know now that it makes me feel better.
But can we just talk about clothes for a sec? I’m having such a hard time getting dressed lately. Of course I’m exaggerating, because I have plenty of things to wear, and I haven’t gained any weight yet. But I DO NOT WANT ANYTHING TOUCHING MY BODY and I am really tired of wearing all my current elastic waist pants all the time. I miss my jeans, but don’t. I love wearing jeans! But the idea of wearing anything with buttons or a zipper, or without any stretch right now is a non-starter.
So these overalls are a decent compromise I suppose – they should fit for a while. All my clothes fit, but I would be so much more comfortable if it was warmer and I could wear dresses and skirts. It’s miserably cold here 🙁
I did appreciate “time off” the last couple of weeks, but I’m also really happy that the holidays are over. I like my work week, what can I say? I love my routine and I’m going to appreciate the hell out of it for the next however many months I can. Because then…well, everything will change!
