Baby Bump: Update 1

Hi, everyone!

I'm TIRED!! Update:

So, we found out that we are pregnant with one baby. One of my embryos didn't implant. Initially, we were a bit disappointed when thinking that one of our fertilized frozen embies didn't make it, but we accepted it as God's will and have moved on happy about our singleton baby to come!

I've felt this pregnancy for what feels like the entire time since implantation. Before our sonogram I swore I could have been pregnant with two or three because my energy is GONE. Now, not only do I have no energy, but I also have a constant headache, nausea and gas issues. The drugs also gave me every single side effect this time. Let's just say it has not been a fun few weeks.

I'm still so thankful for the opportunity to grow our family, but I have to admit that I'm ready for all of these symptoms to go away. I have been so worthless around the house. It's downright shameful.

We go in for our first official ob visit tomorrow. I can't wait to see the baby again and hear his/her's heartbeat. Hopefully, that will get rid of some of my complaining. 

9 weeks 3 days
symptoms: headaches, nausea, gas, fatigue
cravings: none
food aversions: sweets

That's it for the baby bump new for now.

Happy June

It's the smack dab middle of the year! Usually, I'm writing about how I can't believe the year is half way finished. Well, this year I can believe it. I'm not sure why, but things seem right on schedule this year; not too fast or too slow.

I did well with my goals last month with the exception of the gym. I think my bed rest threw me off. I'm resuming tomorrow. 

June's personal goals:

1. 12 visits to the Gym
2. Reduce my carb intake. I have been heavy handed on the pasta and bread lately
3. Finish reading Life Interrupted and start on Better Than Before, and find a fiction read.
4. Do 3 random acts of kindness.

That's it. The hardest part is going to be these carbs...whew.
