I’m sure you thought I’d forgotten this poor blog.
I have not.
I’ve simply been prioritizing.
My husband. My children. My chores.
Plus . . . SUMMER!
Oh, and morning (read: all-day) sickness and online teaching.
So, ya. There you go.
But, I decided that I’d like to keep up with documenting my pregnancies. I’ve never been consistent at keeping journals, so this blog is really my only record of my pregnancies and my children’s first years!
The first 14 weeks have been filled with nausea and exhaustion and not wanting to eat anything while simultaneously being extremely hungry to the point of nausea, which is not good when you are already nauseous.
But, really, I can’t complain. After two miscarriages, any sign of morning sickness was welcome. It was a reminder to me that things were going well in my pregnancy.
Currently, I am feeling a bit better with only small bouts of nausea (as long as I eat). I am hungry all day long and snacks don’t really cut it. I need first and second breakfast, first and second lunch, and a big dinner, AND snacks.
I’m all about that BEEF lately. I would eat a can of chunky beef and potato soup every. single. day. However, that probably wouldn’t be wise. Just the thought of a tri-tip burrito from the farmers’ market burrito wagon makes me salivate (you think I’m joking).
I feel some energy coming back, which is probably why I rearranged my fridge and pantry and have been cooking and baking a ton! It’s a good thing, because we have a big vacation coming that will require me to be energized!
I definitely feel as though I am gaining weight faster. That once scared me, but now I have better perspective. Anything for this little one, eh?
So, there you have it. I am alive. I am a bit over 14 weeks pregnant.
Here’s to a healthy pregnancy!
