Tag Archives: sick


I feel like I have been absent from this space lately. Working full time, being a mother and taking care of a house can really fill a person’s time! This month and the end of last was filled with sickness in our home. I was even laid out with fevers for three days and two weeks later still feel like crap with a sinus thing and annoying cough. I bought some new vitamins today so that I could boost my immune system or something like that. Starting soon I will also be working part time. This decision was a long time coming and I could not be more ready for the change. I will have the chance to get a lot more rest (since Emma naps!) and spend a lot more time with my child. Maybe it will free up more time for blogging. ^_^ 

Here are a few of my favorite recent pictures to share. Emma can walk now and is growing up so fast. Also, I am on instagram as susanmagnolia. It is private and pretty much a feed of Emma photos but if I know ya I will gladly share!

I have lost the ability to enjoy food

In keeping up with the long titles, here we are: I have lost the ability to enjoy food. I have this low grade nausea all the time and food just doesn’t taste good. Its a bummer because cooking and eating food are my great pleasures. I am really not even that far along but I feel “morning” sickness already.

A few people have said that I must be having a girl because I am already so sick. I don’t believe it but its interesting how so many do.

One doctor that I spoke to, who is also pregnant, said she had severe sickness early on and she could only eat bagels and pasta. They sound plain so that makes sense since I am not enjoying anything with too much flavor. So far I am not going to eat hard boiled eggs ever again and my favorite pad thai noodles are out, at least for now.

My mutant sense of smell is also increasing daily and the other day I smelled maiki eating a banana from two rooms away. Pretty funny really. I am lucky that maiki is taking all these new changes so well. He has been very supportive!
