I can't paint...

At least not right now.

Although latex paint is considered safe for use by pregnant women, the smell almost made me vomit last night. I've done a LOT of painting in my lifetime and it never smelled like this - it was like strong turpentine to me. I guess it's me though, because Jon didn't find it smelly at all. Ugh. Guess he'll be painting the room - I was so looking forward to it too, I love painting. For the part I DID paint, it looked fabulous though... it's a bright and cheery yellowish green, and we're doing chocolate brown trim. It's going to look a lot nicer in there, I think.

I've had some cramping and it's made me very worried. It happens at night for about an hour (for the last 3 nights) and I've been so worried about a miscarriage - but there has been no blood at all. I told my psychiatrist today and she told me that cramping can be normal, because the uterus is stretching, even now. And that stress will only make things worse... which is true, but it's so hard for me not to stress when the cramps come. I think I'll feel better once I talk to Dr. Fernandez (the OB/GYN I'll be seeing on the 11th).

Mood: 5
Excited, a little worried, snuggly

Hang in there, Mary. I had cramping with two out of three pregnancies, and those were the ones that formed beautiful babies. The one time I didn't cramp or get all day sickness I had a miscarriage.
