I am 13 weeks pregnant with my third child and can not wait to share my journey with you.
This is a very tough pregnancy for me and I have never been this pregnant before lol.
When I found out I was pregnant,I had been feeling weak for two weeks already.I had a lot happening in my life at that time and had also decided to change my diet and start eating healthy. I was feeling very nauseous and fatigued and thought it was just my body rejecting all this good,healthy food.
I continued feeling sick for two weeks and then I just couldn’t anymore. When I went to the Dr. and started explaining my symptoms he said,before you speak further first go pee for me lol. Immediately I knew that I was pregnant…I just didn’t know I was 7 weeks pregnant already.
So already in this short time I have picked up enormous differences with this pregnancy and the others. With Zoë I threw up one day (my cousin and I still laugh about this) I was on my way to college and sitting in the back of the bus I started getting extremely hot and felt light headed,ot went on for a few stops and eventually when I blew I had luckily made my way to the front of the bus,so I could just lean out the door.Little did I know that it was my cousin’s stop and that she was in the bus with me the whole time,so she got out giggling and just smiled at me.
Kai I had morning sickness up until two months (a month after I took the pregnancy test ).
But this one eish I’m still suffering.It is literally making me ill (I just want to sleep). I have to chew something all day just to fight the nausea away.My husband is so used to this that he always has a sour sweet at the ready for me,God really blessed me with a superman.The other night he rubbed my back and tummy for literally an hour and a half without complaining and still took care of Kai so that I could sleep. I woke up something ast 12 still complaining about the nausea and the first thing he asked me was if I wanted a sweet.How sweet is that?
My sense of smell has also heightened and unfortunately for me,this is not something I am terribly happy about as it seems to be super heightened for the bad smells and I work in an environment, where the aroma of my surroundings are totally out of my control
However I am extremely grateful to once again being carrying a beautiful baby and to be blessed with such an amazing gift.
