Fit Me Pregnancy Journal Day 14

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.

Until tomorrow,

Christy
