Oh my goodness it has been FOREVER since I have written a blog!
Mostly because my days are spent counting down the hours at work trying not to pay attention to the constant nausea that is my life currently.
What is this constant and heavy nausea from you may ask? It’s from the tiny little baby that is currently growing inside of my belly.
I know right! I hardly can believe it as well.
To say me and my man are excited would be the biggest understatement of all time.
I’m getting butterflies just typing this all out…or is that nausea? Ha! Either way…it’s the most exciting form of news I carry around these days.
I’m tired. I sleep any chance I can get. And working full time has really put a damper on my workouts. I am so tired by the time I get home that all I want to do is put pajamas on and lay down.
When Matt and I first started talking about babies I was so excited. I kept thinking about how perfect pregnancy is and how glamorous it is.
Now mind you, I’ve been pregnant before. Obviously the 7 years that have passed have fogged up my memories.
As perfect and beautiful as pregnancy is. I forgot just how taxing it is on ones body and mind. It is not glamorous. And I forgot that one little detail. Hehe. The morning sickness, the bloating. Oh the bloating. I am getting close to 9 weeks. The baby is the size of a large raspberry yet I look like I’ve grown a lime already. Ha! Thank you progesterone.
Yes, since I did miscarry previous I am on extra hormones…which makes the experience a little bit more of an emotional roller coaster. As if my natural hormones weren’t enough. Let’s throw in some more! Haha! Don’t get me wrong. I’m just trying to be funny here. I’m thankful for the precautions my doctors are taking. And I’m so thankful for a healthy 8 weeks and 4 days so far.
I’m so thankful for Matts patience as I sit and complain about how nauseous I am. And when I sit and cry because the hormones are just raging. Or when I snap for a quick minute because again, raging hormones.
I’m already so thankful for this time of being pregnant. And thanks to the little one down there who reminds me they are okay when I feel the need to throw up.
I’m just really thankful for another chance to grow a baby. I’m thankful for the blessing in experiencing. And I’m thankful for the man I get to experience it all with.
I’m really excited and can’t wait to continue to share our journey to parenthood with you all.
Stay tuned for more updates on the bump.
