It’s starting

(Note: This post was originally private and not visible.)

So the symptoms are starting to make their real appearances.

My breasts have gone from PMS sore to gaping infected wounds in the front that hurt when I brush my teeth. And I need to buy a new bra.

I had my first throwing-up-because-of-morning-sickness episode coming back from the retreat. I’ve figured out that if there are no other triggers, morning sickness will not make me throw up. If I have coffee on an empty stomach and then ride in the back of a van through rural Maine, well…

My husband and I have agreed that two cups of coffee (one of my Starbucks mugs) is a reasonable amount.

I also get sick if I get hungry, so I need many small but relatively healthy snacks to surround me. I should work on making sure I have something like that at all times.

It seems a little too early for this, and I’m not pigging out, but my pants are already too tight.

Alpha is six weeks today.
