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.
