Six Weeks.

That is where I am today. Six weeks into the pregnancy. I feel AWFUL! The nausea is overwhelming. It seems nothing is helping. I don’t remember it being this bad with my other two. Maybe it gets worse each pregnancy? I felt bad with Nakiah, but I ate non-stop. with Ava I couldn’t eat and lost weight, didn’t start showing until I was 5 months.
This one here, I nibble on whatever throughout the day. I’m taking sips of juice and pop throughout the day. I can’t stomach water right now.
The girls are excited. They’ve been watching birth videos with me on youtube.
We were watching one video and Nakiah says “mommy where is the baby’s neck?” I was cracking up. When that head pops out, it does look like they have no neck. She’s so observant.
They want to hold every baby they see, and then they say it’s their baby.
Nakiah asked me the other day if the baby was growing bigger and bigger in my belly.
I don’t think she remembers when I was pregnant with Ava.
As bad as I feel, it’s a reminder that I have a healthy pregnancy, and it’s s stage of pregnancy that I’m going through right now. Some days I don’t think I can take another 6+ weeks of feeling this way. Then I remind myself of the end result.
I tell our baby that I already love him/her. Even though the baby is only the size of a raisin right now. I am inlove.
I am in awe of my body. You would think that since this is our 3rd that I might not feel this way, but I do.
I’ve signed up for the weekly pregnancy newsletters. I love to read about how the baby is developing and share it with the girls.
Charles has been really sweet too. He called to check on us before, but it seems he calls more often now. I like it though. Sometimes I’m irritated from the phone ringing, but I can’t get mad at him for checking up on us.
Oh, and his oldest sister is expecting her 2nd in March. How exciting! New cousins, siblings, aunties, uncles, moms and dads again.
What a wonderful world.
p.s. hello to my new followers. I will try my best to get around to visit your blogs soon. I have a lot of catching up to do.

Thank You For Sharing!

  1. already the clock is ticking away. i remember i had a book that was a calendar of sorts that had photos and details about our baby at every stage.beautiful.

  2. My son was still breastfeeding a lot at 23 months. Then, suddenly, at 23.5 months, he dropped down to 2-3 times a day and even then, he wasn't really nursing. I was about 12 weeks pregnant at the time. About 6 weeks before my daughter was born, my son stopped completely. After she was born, he wanted to start again and I did let him, but only before bed and nap and only for a few minutes. He knows that the baby gets milk first and most of it is for the baby.Ava will probably self-wean before the baby is born. If you don't see any reduction by about 5 months, maybe you can start trying to shorten nursing sessions or drop some.

  3. Pregnancy is so wonderful. . . after the first 3 months! Just Kidding! Here's some things you could try for the morning sickness.-Drink plenty of water, as dehydration can cause nausea.-Drops and rises in blood sugar can cause nausea – have a bite to eat before you get out of bed in the morning and eat high protein meals or snacks every couple of hours.-Eat just before bed to help with nausea in the morning.-Suck on Preggy Pops.-Drink Boost or Ensure if you can't keep anything down.-Drink peach leaf tea.-Chew gum to distract you from feeling nauseous.-Take 50mg of B12 twice a day.-Try ginger powder in capsules, ginger in raw form, or ginger chews.-Smell lemon or peppermint essential oils – make sure they're food grade oils. You can try putting a few drops of oil on a cotton ball and putting in your bra so the scent is constant. -Sip anise or fennel seeds tea.-Sip peppermint tea.-Try wearing Sea Bands.-Get an Acupuncture treatment.-Your prenatal vitamin could be the cause – try switching brands.-Sip water with tangerine oil in it – make sure it is food grade oil.-Don't guzzle down liquids.-Warm bath with epsom salts to help stay hydrated -Eat a lemon when you feel nauseous – lemon drops, lemon in water, lemonade, etc..-Suck on ginger candies.

  4. So sorry you aren't doing so well, Darcel… I do hope as the weeks progress you feel better. My sister had her first child last year, and she was unwell almost the whole time. I know that doesn't encourage much…LOL!…But just so you know you're not alone. :o) Sipping ginger, peppermint or chamomile tea can help with that nausea… Sending good, happy vibes you'll be feeling better soon! ((HUGS))

  6. I hope your morning sickness doesn't last the whole first trimester! Just remember most women are done with morning sickness by 13 weeks, that means you have less than 2 months!
