Woo hoo! The weeks are ticking by! In a way I want them to speed up, but I also want them to slow down because I have so much to do and so many things I hope to happen before September. I haven’t said much about it on here, but at the end of February my husband very unexpectedly lost his job, and we have been seriously struggling to find him something else. I have been a basket case, very stressed out about how this is all going to pan out. I’m trying to remember that God is in control, but it’s hard when you get news like that at the worst possible time. We are doing everything we know to do to find him more work, but it’s just tough out there, and he’s NOT being picky…which actually makes it even more frustrating and scary. When we decided to start trying for a baby, he had what we thought was a solid job, and obviously if he was unemployed we would have held off on trying, so this is just a scary time for us. Anyway, I don’t want to get into it too much because it just upsets me, but that’s what’s been going on.
Bloating has gone down, I feel like I look smaller than at 13 weeks
The first few days of last week I felt really good, and then Sunday and Monday wham! I was hit with really bad headaches, and feeling sick to my stomach again. Things were better yesterday thankfully, but it was strange to go backwards after I was feeling so good! Here is what has been going on over the past week:
Symptoms: Headaches, acne, sinus problems, round ligament pain (like WOAH), shortness of breathe, constant peeing.
Baby’s Size: One source says navel orange, one says apple.
Maternity Clothes: My awesome parents bought me some at Old Navy this weekend. SO comfy!
Stretch Marks: Still crossing fingers.
Sleep: Not as good this week. Every night I have gotten up at least twice to pee, sometimes three times. Yikes.
Miss Anything? I feel like my emotions are all over the place and I don’t like not feeling in control of them, so ya I miss feeling like a normal person.
Cravings: Frozen grapes. Really anything frozen.
Aversions: Really thick heavy things, I just can’t eat more than a couple of bites of chicken or beef by themselves, too dense if that makes sense.
Looking Forward to: My appointment TODAY!
What I’m Loving: That my bloating has finally gone down and I don’t feel quite as uncomfortable as I did between weeks 8-11.
Workouts: Alright. I ran three times (2,2.5, and 5) and walked every day. I am experiencing some round ligament pain when I run, so I am hoping it’s just a phase and won’t change my ability to run through pregnancy!
Post 5 mile run, that was a doozey! (Lots of walk breaks!)
QOTD: Have you ever been unemployed? Any advice for us?
