Onward to the 2nd trimester

I am almost there... so close!
I keep thinking the nausea is gone, but then my hubris gets me and I feel awful for a day or two. I woke up at 330am last night, because I was so hungry. Why was I so hungry? Because around dinnertime last night every food I could imagine eating sounded like the worst idea ever. I finally ate 3 pierogi at 630 pm, and 1/2 a banana around 930. That is not enough food!
So, I sat up in bed and ate some dried cereal, at 330 in the morning, and fell back asleep.

I am looking forward to feeling truly better soon, and getting some of that mythical energy. I'd especially like it to kick in this week, as Mr. S and I are going to the Caribbean for a honeymoon-revisited/babymoon. I know it is early, but with my summer teaching schedule it was either go now, or in September when I'll be large and not so excited about snorkeling.

I am a bit obsessed with snorkeling. When we were on our honeymoon, I did it so much that my legs got severely burned. I've bought some swim tights(who knew?) and shall be unfashionable, but not lobster red, this time. We're going to St. John, an amazingly pristine place. I like to imagine the baby getting a little saltwater-blood from this trip. I am a bit of a fish, so I'd like a swimmy baby.

  3. Oh, St. John... I was married at Gallow's Point in Cruz Bay and then we honeymooned at Maho Bay. Gorgegous. Absoulutely wonderful. We have always planned on returning on our ten year anniversersary. Enjoy the laid back paradise and hopefully just being there will make you feel better.

    I am so jealous. Have fun!
