When I was pregnant with little Marty I kept a “mommy is feeling” log & it was so fun to look back at! I decided to do the same with this baby too. I am feeling less & less anxious about losing this baby, but the fear is still in the back of my mind. Thankfully feeling movement helps so much & reassures me. And the fact that I finally got to hear the heartbeat!! This pregnancy has been SO different! I definitely don’t feel as good, but it’s more than worth it!
So here is how I’ve been feeling week by week!
mommy is feeling: SO SICK. And exhausted. I was up until 12:30 last night with the worst migraine & nausea.
food cravings: buffalo sauce on everything
food aversions: textures like cheesecake
maternity clothes: I just always wear leggings
emotions: roller coaster. I am so excited but a ball of nerves. I feel like I’m just holding my breath. I’m trying so hard to trust, but I am so scared of losing this sweet baby.
sleep: not good
favorite moment of the week: celebrating my birthday!
things i’m praying about: peace & that this baby would continue growing to full term & be happy & healthy!
