Yesterday wasn't such a great day in pregnancy land. I had my first real case of nausea at work. I really thought I was going to have to run out of a meeting, luckily it never got past the stage of that pre vomit slobbery feeling in my mouth. Then towards the end of the day I got really crampy. I thought for sure I would spot, but I didn't. I just felt generally icky. I was supposed to go run with some friends, but I decided that I better listen to my body and it wasn't having a good day.
My smell is out of control. Do any of you have this problem? It's like I'm a nose super hero. Everything stinks to me. Like I almost lost it in the kitchen last night, I'm standing there and I can specifically smell the coffee maker, the garbage disposal, the garbage can and my dog. It's gross. Plus I went to eat some salsa last night and I thought for sure it had spoiled, it tasted carbonated and so acidic, but G said it tasted just fine. I brought hummus for lunch and ended up throwing it away, I love hummus. Too wierd. I don't like it. But if this is the worst that I get, I'll take it.
I had planned to go to spinning this morning, but was up all night worrying about money! Already! Argh. I really want to take a year off of work. But when I think about living on just G's paycheck, it covers our bills and not much else. I know that he takes a lot out of his check for retirement and our car funds, so he can make his check larger, but still I just don't think it's possible. I am going to have to figure out a way to get my work to keep my part time. Maybe they will let me work part time for 3-6 months after I come back...maybe...Ideally I would want to work part time until munchkin is in school. I think we could live off of half my salary and G's for that long. BUt I don't really have the time of job that translates into part time. I know even if they pay me for part time and I'm only here in the office 20 hours a week, I'll still have to work from home and check email...maybe I can talk them into 20 hours in the office and 10 hours from home. Maybe. It'll depend on how good my baby is b/c I have lots of conference calls. If I had to work 10 hours from home, I could just schedule for all those calls to happen from home. It could work out. Too bad I work for like the least progressive company ever. So, I doubt they'll want anything to do with it.
