August 11th: deal

Written 8/11/11: 6.5 weeks pregnant

Dear E,
So, my babies have very strange appetites. Just like  your big sister, all you’re allowing me to eat is spicy (we’re talking hot sauce like straight outta the bottle) and smoothies. Mainly banana smoothies. And I hate bananas.
Since about Monday, I’ve been on the verge of throwing up like 90% of the day. You know that yucky, almost tingly feeling you get in your mouth right before it happens? Yeah, I have that constantly. Last night it got so bad that I lay in bed crying because I just couldn’t make myself feel better. I know, I know. I shouldn’t be complaining, and I’m not really. Just sayin’, I feel like crap.
Let’s make a deal. I’ll stop complaining about this nausea business if you promise to keep growing for me. Deal?
I love you,

When I was pregnant with my son (my first real live baby), I couldn't get enough of banana and peanut butter shakes... which are completely and utterly disgusting once the baby's born. (A server mentioned that it was commonly ordered by pregnant women and no one else, LOL.)

The nice thing about my first daughter's gestational preference for spicy things was that I could also eat them while nursing her. Here's hoping you can, too, without causing diaper rash or a gassy baby belly.
