Fit Me Pregnancy Journal Day 14: Deployment Trimesters
I tried a cup of decaf coffee this morning. It still tastes terrible.
For me, disliking coffee is the most unexpected food aversion of them all.
Prior to pregnancy, I was a coffee fanatic.
I drank it black and often. About 2 weeks into my pregnancy it started tasting terrible. Convenient since I’m not supposed to have more than one serving of caffeine, but still.
I was kind of hoping that because I am done the first trimester my tastebuds would return to normal. Nope.
Oh well. Water and tea for me!
We are putting together a box to send to Josh out on deployment. At this point it will get there a little late for Christmas. But that’s ok..it’s the thought that counts.
There is something a little odd about the rhythm of deployment matching the progress of my pregnancy. I found out I was pregnant days before Josh left. So when he left, if felt like both his return and the baby arrival were infinitely far away.
Now 2 months into deployment, its like I have settled into both experiences. I’m more pregnant and starting to feel like it and the boys and I are in a routine you only find after separation becomes normal.
I’m in the second trimester of pregnancy, but I think if deployment had trimesters, we would be just shy of finishing the first. Josh should be back a few weeks before baby arrives and baby is due June 10th.
Last night during dinner I told the boys next year for Christmas would be quite different. Both daddy and the new baby would be here.
That is hard to imagine, but sounds amazing.
