Here I Grow: Week 13
How I'm Feeling: This week has been one of those where I feel like I've been sick almost constantly. I've complained way too much and I feel guilty about that. Just yesterday I started taking a Vitamin B6 supplement, in addition to my Prenatals, Vitamin D and Fish Oil that I take. The Vitamin B6 is supposed to help with nausea and I'm hoping that it works! I was literally up until 12:30am one night this week because I kept on getting sick and as much as I know how it's totally worth it....it's the stink'n pits!
Weight Gain: This week I stayed the same so, I'm still at 6lb total.
What I'm Wearing: Still wearing regular clothes but, I'm getting more picky about my pants. If they aren't lowrise, they're super uncomfortable and I can't wear them.
What I'm Eating/Craving: I haven't had any new cravings or food aversions this week. Mostly, I've been trying to focus on eating healthy, eating plenty of produce and trying to drink enough water.
How I'm Sleeping: Sleeping great! Everyday around 1pm, I've been feeling like I'm so tired that I possibly might not survive so, I've taken a few naps this week. Normally, I'm not a napper but, you do what you've gotta do!
Emotions/Thoughts/Feelings: This is my last week in the first trimester and I'm feeling really relieved that this phase is almost over. I've had a lot more fear and anxiety this pregnancy and I'm thankful that so far, this baby seems to be growing just wonderfully. Fear is one of those tricky things that I wrestle with. I know that it's the enemy's way of trying to steal my joy and yet, I still struggle with it.
My goals for this week are to continue to eat really healthy, to excersise more, to get plenty of sleep and to remember how beautiful pregnancy is---- Because, it is beautiful, even when it makes your face breakout, when your pants can't button and when you feel like all you want to do is sleep. It's a miracle, an honor and my goodness, I can't wait to know more about this little person!
Have a great week!
