Pregnant in first trimester and craved Taco Bell EVERY day for the last couple weeks! I have been eating at least one Beef Quesarito every single day. Sometimes I'll also add double stacked tacos.
Nothing satisfies the bump like some good ol' Taco Bell! Anyone else crave TB while pregnant?
I started posting here a year and a half ago under a different username. I had fallen off the wagon after a badge reset, and there's some glitch that was still displaying where I would have been, and it made me feel bad to log in and see a badge being displayed that I don't deserve. Whomp, whomp.
I just discovered yesterday that I'm expecting! We'd been trying for a while -- I had no good reason to think this month would be the one but I've been making sure each month that I pay attention to my cycle (the body doesn't begin developing the placenta and thus sharing in mom's blood supply until two weeks after conception, which is also the time when most women would menstruate if they're not pregnant). So, this itty bun hasn't been sharing any booze with me!
My pregnancy with my first kid was what really opened my eyes to my problem with alcohol. It was so hard to quit, even though I was pregnant. I would indulge in the occasional beer because lots of people do and it's totally okay, right? I still got to a point where I didn't at all because having just one so you don't hurt your baby is objectively not fun. Of course, I looked forward to having a drink, and a friend brought champagne for us to have in the hospital.
Once my baby was here, I felt the most insane guilt that I had had any alcohol while I was pregnant with him, and I worried and looked for signs that I'd hurt him for months. A friend took a weird picture of him where I thought he kind of looked like a FAS baby, and I fucking lost it when I was home. It wasn't enough to make me quit, although I can assure you I won't have a drop with this one.
So, in my sobriety journey, I'm very nervous. I know I won't drink while I'm pregnant, but my drinking really became a problem once I could "finally" do it again with my first. My drinking is also in this gray area socially, so most people don't think I have a problem. But I know I have just been doing alcohol's bidding, and I worry about what I'll do when I'm no longer pregnant and have to be the only one in my body. That said, I know a lot more about alcohol now than I did with my first, so I had no idea then that a period of sobriety followed by drinking results in worse drinking patterns. This time, I'm embracing sobriety during my pregnancy in stead of spending the entire time begrudgingly abstaining. I'll be spending my time thinking of coping strategies to have in place once my baby is here, starting with no alcohol in the ho... keep reading on reddit ➡
Thanks to a major deal with Mexico involving the purchase of 1,250 CDLM chassis and their subsequent delivery to Ukraine, we are now prepared to equip our forces more effectively than ever, with a little effort put into conversion. The Ukrainian Defense Ministry plans to convert 1,185 of these vehicles to the Drakon IFV standard, and the remaining 65 to the Грім B SPG platform. Most of these vehicles will likely be assigned to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Mountain Guards divisions, given the chassis' high horsepower to weight ratio and the demand for such capabilities in the mountainous western region of Ukraine.
This deal comes as a followup to two other major events; one being the scrapping of thousands of cold war-era vehicles, and the other being a large purchase of equipment from India. With this major conversion, we expect to be able to slow down our procurement soon and dedicate more of the military's funding to things like exercises, upgrades, pensions, and aid missions.
We expect these conversions to occur over the next year and a half at an overall price of $750 million.
Yesterday I went to a clinic to find out if I had a bun in the oven. Turns out, I do. I love my boyfriend very much and we plan to get married in a couple of years. We eventually want a child but under different circumstances and in a different situation. After finding out I feel a weight off my shoulders. But at the same time feel guilty because I could never let my family find out. It would crush them & I would never be trusted again. But I've been having a lot of health problems. The most obvious is the fact that I've been nauseous all day every day for the last week (I'm on my 6 week tomorrow). And I've been having a pounding intense headache all day every day. Which is the worst. I read somewhere that it could be a blood clot forming. So I'm scared. I have no insurance and no doctor because it's through my mother.The only relief I have when I get some sleep & that is rarely. Does anyone have any tips or information for feeling better?
