14 Weeks

First off let me say that for those of you that are worrying about my spouse not being fed, take heart and know now that according the email I last received from him he is now being fed.  Guess they found more food.  Maybe they were just rationing it to make sure they had enough to last?  I don't know but I'd rather no soldier go hungry because of budget cuts.

Budget cuts are getting bad with the military.  No longer are the soldiers being flown to the destinations if busing is possible.  One would think with an AFB in the back yard it would be feasible to fly them but no busing was cheaper this time.  25 hour bus trip to get where they had to go.  Just nuts in my opinion.

Okay enough chewing on that subject before I make the wound worse.

I'm 14 weeks today.  Yay!  Every day that I stay pregnant is another day of happiness.

The nausea is starting to subside.  I think it is because I am following the GD diet and eating often to prevent some of the nausea.  I do find that come bedtime I am a little bit nauseated but not as bad as I was.

OMG!  It felt like I had accidentally put Heet Liniment on my nipples this morning after my shower.  It hurt so bad.  I couldn't get the sport bra on quick enough.  Even then it took a good half hour before the compression feature worked to calm them down.

Still no weight gain.  That's okay I'm sure I'll start gaining when I hit the road at the end of the second trimester.  One can't help but gain weight when eating fast food even if it is salads because it is so hard to go without the full fat dressings and croutons!

Since J left I finished a baby blanket and three novels.  One of the novels is for my book club of which I'll be writing about soon.  Until that is posted here is a photo of the baby blanket.
Since we won't know the gender of the baby until it is born I'm going with neutral colors.  I'm fine with being team Green.

  1. Glad to hear they are rationing food better for J. Budget cuts where military is involved is ridiculous. Glad to hear the nausea is subsiding! Love that blanket - it's precious!

    1. Seems that Congress is thinking of padding their pockets with raises while the military exists on almost nothing.

    1. The problem with MREs is that they contain 2000 calories in each one which means he is going to get fat and loggy if he eats more than one of them a day.
