Can I be honest? I've been planning on writing this post and I've been excited to share about how this pregnancy is going. But then, I came home and found out that a MOPS friend of mine lost her husband this weekend. He passed away in a car accident and my heart is now totally aching for her. So, can you please stop whatever it is that you're doing and pray for her? Thank you. Now, onto Week 7.
Weight Gain/Loss: 0 pounds so far.
What I'm wearing: I'm still wearing my normal clothes. By the end of the day, if I sit down, my pants sometimes feel too tight so, pushing them down or unbuttoning the top button helps. I hope to stay in my regular clothes for quiet awhile longer, even if I have to push my pants down low. I feel like all of my old maternity clothes are borderline hideous. For the fall, I want to find some bright colored leggings, some long sweaters and some cute boots. I'd rather not ever wear my old maternity clothes again.
What I'm eating/craving: So far, cottage cheese has been the thing that always sounds yummy. I put avocado in it sometimes with tons of black pepper and it's like the best thing ever. Also, I love wraps with cheese, cream cheese, avocado, pickle, onion, tomato and lettuce. They are like amazing. Oh and BLT's......love them. My stomach is starting to growl just from writing about this stuff.
How I'm sleeping: Good, except I'm already getting up once a night to pee. It's no biggie though because I go right back to sleep. I've also been having some real crazy pregnancy dreams.
Emotions/Thoughts/Feelings: Still feeling anxious to have our first ultrasound and be out of the first trimester. I've had way more fear this pregnancy than I've had in the past and that hasn't been fun. The sickness has been reassuring though, as strange as that may sound.
Even though I've felt more anxiety, I'm also full of excitement and we're all so happy.
