It’s a girl!

It has been way too long since I have been on WordPress, and I have missed you all! I wanted to let you all know that my pregnancy has been progressing along very well (even though I still have morning sickness) and yesterday we found out that WE ARE HAVING A GIRL! 

This slightly terrifies me because girls (as I know from my own childhood) are complicated and emotional! I hope I’m up for it! Even though I am nervous about having a girl, I am so looking forward to it!! 

Here she is!! 

Raging Hormones with a touch of Anxiety

My hormones have been raging out of control today and they have been sprinkled with a touch of anxiety. I have had a lot of anxiety about becoming a mom. I haven’t had much anxiety since I got pregnant, and this has all seem to hit me all of a sudden. I’m not upset that I am pregnant but I am starting to freak out about what it is going to be like when the little bundle gets here. A part of me wants to hid under the covers and just cry for the rest of the day, and the other part of me wants March 1st (the due date) to hurry up and get there! What the heck!

I was already emotional, but this is intense!

What did you guys do when your hormones started to get the best of you?

Happiest Moment!

We had our second ultrasound this morning to check and see our baby is growing and progressing. It was incredible to see how big it has gotten! The entire ultrasound the baby was wiggling, jumping around, kicking, sucking it’s thumb and even yawning! It was incredible! I could hardly believe what I was seeing! I didn’t think it would move around so much. The tech was laughing and saying that I was not going to sleep later in a few months lol! I am so happy! 

Check out my little one ❤️

Shine Bright

My goal today is to be a beacon of positivity to all those around me. I do not want to add negativity to an already negative world. I want to be the bright light in a dark room. 

I think it is vitally important that we strive to bring happiness to those around us, even if it is just a smile. 

Today, challenge yourself to bring positivity to those you meet. 

Puking because of what you see?

This seems to be my problem since I got pregnant. Yesterday I saw someone blow a snot rocket and I have thrown up three time since seeing it. I already have obsessive thoughts due to my anxiety disorder, but they have been under control for awhile now. However, ever since yesterday this moment keeps playing in my mind over and over and it won’t stop. Unfortunately, now that I’m pregnant I throw up all the time. So I am stuck in this never ending cycle of snot rockets and vomit.

Earlier in my pregnancy I threw up because my sink looked really gross and I’m not sure if I am the only one who throws up because of things I see. It is really bizzare. Smells don’t bother me very much but sight does. 

Has anyone else experienced this? Or have any advice how to get out of my endless mental cycle today? 

Thank you for letting me vent. It has been a rough 24 hours. 

Trying to be Patient 

I am now 12 weeks pregnant, and I am finding it difficult to be be patient as I wait for my little unborn child to develop. What I mean is – I just want to meet them! I want to hold them in my arms and cuddle the heck out of them. 

I am so looking forward to seeing what they look like, how they sound and even the way they smell. I heard babies smell nice, so it’s not too weird. 

I am trying to celebrate every moment but really I just want to hold my baby. ❤️

Pregnancy Continued

I am half way into the 11th week of my pregnancy and things are going well. I am still feeling nauseous, and somedays I am feeling frustrated about being sick. However, things are slowly getting better, and I am going to be grateful for each moment (no matter how short) of not being nauseous.

I have also noticed that I have hit the emotional part of my pregnancy! I am not a big crier, but I have cried A LOT the last two days. I don’t even know what it was about, but I just felt like i needed to sob! I feel sorry for my husband! God bless him! LOL!

OH! And I still have NO Anxiety! YAY!

11 weeks!

Wow! I don’t know how it has happened, but I am 11 weeks pregnant! Apparently, my baby is around the size of a lime! That seems huge to me, considering they just a few weeks ago it was a poppy seed! 

I actually found that today I had a lot of energy, and that hasn’t happened in weeks. I was able to get through work without crashing immediately when I got home. 

I am still throwing up in the mornings (boo), but my nausea doesn’t last all day anymore. I seem to finally be experiencing a little bit of relief. I am hoping and praying that it will end soon!

Oh! And I have ZERO anxiety! I haven’t had much at all since I got pregnant. I was really worried that it would get really bad, but it seems to have disappeared, and for that, I am thankful! 

Cheers to week 11 and ZERO anxiety!
