I missed last week’s update. It seemed like the week just flew by and given the choice between writing a post and sleeping, I obviously chose sleeping. ๐Ÿ˜ 

I am so thrilled to say that I made it through 3 days without zofran! Sure, I felt sick, but not so much that I couldn’t function. I’m so so happy to be feeling this much better!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m eating more salads and healthy foods and I’ve been able to quit the microwave lunches and start eating more of my normal meals. Progress!!

Exhaustion is still a thing and I accidentally took a nap today. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Zane was taking a nap and Tru and Levi were watching a show. Next thing I know, I’m waking up and it’s been who knows how long! But as we move into the second trimester, I’m hoping for the fog to lift and to see a rise in my energy levels. Some days I’m less tired than others. 

My weight is around +3-4lbs. My bump looks higher and is rounding out. Someone at church noticed and asked if it was baby. She’s very fortunate that I’m actually pregnant! ๐Ÿ˜‚ She loves my kids though and was so extremely excited. We haven’t made any official announcement yet as I was waiting till we find out gender, but it’s pretty obvious at this point that it’s not just too many donuts and pizza. ๐Ÿคฃ 

I keep halfway convincing myself that I feel flutters but it’s probably my imagination. I did get to hear the baby kick when we used the doppler last weekend! I was 12+3. It was such a great sound!! Took me forever to find the heartbeat though and I got really freaked out. Thankfully I have an appointment in a couple days, Lord willing. It’s my first actual ob appointment. Since it’s been a whole 4 weeks since my last ultrasound I am hoping hoping hoping that she will do an ultrasound to make sure the sch is gone. DH thinks he’s going to lose his mind after 8 weeks of pelvic rest. ๐Ÿ˜‚ It would definitely be a relief to know that everything looks good, but we’ll see if she decides to do one. 

I only have a few other symptoms right now, namely feeling light headed and getting occasional headaches. Pretty standard for me at this point. Definitely still sticking with milk of magnesia every few days. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ I have about 2 shots of pio left and then I’m done! Yay! Mainly I just look forward to feeling baby kicks!! ๐Ÿ‘ฃ ๐Ÿ’“

I didn’t get a belly pic last week but hopefully this week I’ll fix my face long enough to take one. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I’m currently waist deep in planning a bridal shower for my sister and soon to be sister in law. Two weddings in 2 months!! Super exciting. ๐Ÿ™‚ 2 of my sisters are co-hosting it with me, which is very helpful. Oddly enough, they have me… The very least creative or crafty member of our entire family, in charge of decorating and party favors. This should be interesting! ๐Ÿคž

Dear God, thank You for a better week with less nausea. I’m so thankful for being able to enjoy this baby and grow our family. Please continue to bless this pregnancy and protect us. In Jesus’ name, amen.
