It is extremely unfortunate to have brushing your teeth lead to nausea, and have that nausea lead to serious throwing up, to then be faced with the concept that you really need to brush your teeth again when it had such a disastrous outcome the first time you tried it.

In other news, I'm getting really anxious to find out the gender of my little avocado. I need to wait 3 more weeks. I've been taking those "old wives tale" quizzes online and depending on the quiz I get both answers. I have my intuition about it, but I can't tell if it's what I believe I'm having or if it's what I want to have. Bah. I'm tired of waiting.

Yesterday I finally found the preservative free version of the H1N1 vaccine. I know, seriously, who is still concerned about it? Basically my doctor told me that I'd probably just need to end up getting it in the fall, and that my immune system won't be as strong then. So I found the version they wanted me to get and I went and got it. It was so painless! At least, at first. But by the time I went to bed my arm ached a bunch. So that meant that last night I was down to sleeping on my right side only. I really miss sleeping on my stomach and my back. I will be happy when my arm stops hurting and I at least have options again.

That's enough for today.

Days Pregnant: 119
Days to go: 161


  1. hi, i'm 18wks along and enjoy reading your blog, since we obviously have something in common. you mentioned that you can't wait to sleep on your stomach or back again. why can't you? is it uncomfortable?

  2. Hey Bridget. Sleeping or even laying on my stomach has been uncomfortable for several months and now it's just downright painful. Sleeping on your back is something they tell you not to do while pregnant. Here's a pretty good website explaining why. http://www.americanpregnancy.org/pregnancyhealth/sleepingpositions.html

    It may be premature to stop sleeping on my back, but I'm trying to get use to it. I do find it uncomfortable to be on my back for more than about 15 minutes, so I usually save that position until I'm snoozing in the morning and rolling around a lot anyway.
