Pregnancy is so weird.
Seriously how come nobody tells you about all the crazy things that happen
to your body when you're pregnant? Some good, mostly not so good.
The belly growing is kind of fun-and I tease Chase that I'm a vampire because I have an incredible sense of smell. As long as I'm not smelling anything very strong its ok, otherwise I have to hold my breath or head to the bathroom. As far as the "not so good" pregnancy symptoms go I think the list spans broader. For instance, the leg cramps in the middle of the night aren't really that funny...neither is the waking up 1-3 times each night to pee. I thought those were both third trimester plagues but I guess I'm blessed with them early. The hormone changes give Chase whiplash I think. I do my best to moderate my emotions because I know its probably just the estrogen. Of course there is the occasional faintness, varying levels of nauseousness, puking sprees with little or no warning, and worst of all: FOOD IS DISGUSTING! On one hand I am hungry ALL the time, but nothing sounds good and I can only eat half a meal before I feel like I'm going to lose it. Within the hour I am starving again.
Enough complaining. Honestly, even with all the weird symptoms it is more fun than uncomfortable to be pregnant. I love thinking about our little baby all curled up safe inside my belly. Hopefully soon I'll start to feel him/her swimmin' around in there. Call me crazy but I'm actually exited to "look pregnant" to other people. Right now I just think I have a baby bump and my family makes fun of me because they don't think I do.

P.S. Here are two big ones that I forgot. Suddenly I have all kinds of allergies plus my nose is stuffed up all the time and worst yet-MY HAIR IS FALLING OUT!!!
What other weird/quirky symptoms did you guys have?
