In my 13th week of pregnancy we had our NT scan and it finally started to become a bit more real. I was struggling with the fact that I was pregnant but didn't feel pregnant.The scan gave me some reassurance that yes there is a baby in there and yes it was ours. Baby is definitely nice and healthy as it is taking every single last bit of nutrients and substance I have. I feel completely crap but this is a good sign as it means baby is healthy. The sacrifice has begun ;-) This week I am still down from my pre pregnancy weight and have so far lost 4 kgs as I currently weigh 63.5kg. I had a massive massive craving for BBQ shapes and I literally had to buy a packet and open them and smell them just to try and cure it. I am coeliac so I can't eat them but smelling was close enough. My symptoms this week include ridiculously sore breasts and super sensitive nipples. I have blocked sinus constantly and really bad headaches. The dreaded 24/7 nausea is still hanging around and it's starting to get old. Hopefully I'll be able to eat again soon! All of this is worth it because I have a ridiculously cute baby growing inside of me so you know...you gotta take the good with the bad.
It's a complete celebration up in here as
Morning Sickness All day sickness has started to ease. I do not want to jinx myself but I don't feel the constant nausea 24/7 and I'm starting to feel like eating food. It is seriously the best feeling in the whole entire world. I have eaten a home cooked meal every night this week so I feel like a totally new person. I have put on .05 of a kilo and am up to 64kg. I am trying to drink as much water as I can as I have been getting headaches so I'm trying to ensure it is not from dehydration. This week we cleaned out the baby nursery and it is ready to be stripped for new floors and fresh paint. This week I bought babies first item of clothing. 3 pieces for a girl and 3 pieces for a boy. This will be it until we find out the sex of our baby.
Baby officially came out to play this week. On Wednesday the 5th of February I woke up and my tummy felt 'full' This was the first time that I had felt this! We have had a good week this week. Nausea only hits when I don't keep up to my eating so I'm learning to keep on top of that. Headaches come and go but haven't been too bad this week. On Thursday night I had my very first and hopefully last vomit. Let's pray it was the grand finale. I have started having trouble sleeping at night but hey, everything cant be perfect right ;-) I will take the insomnia over nausea ANY DAY. I bought my first lot of maternity bras this week because nothing fits me anymore and these babies just keep growing and growing. They are sore as well and super super sensitive. I literally shower with my hands covering them because the pressure from the water kills. My weight is rising and rising and I will be so excited when I finally see the numbers of my pre-pregnancy weight after loosing all that weight from being so sick in the previous weeks. All in all it has been a pretty amazing week.
Peace, Love and Hope
