Baby is the size of a: Mango
Cravings: Bacon & egg muffins & mandarins
Symptoms: Unfortunately I was diagnosed with hyperemesis so I have severe vomiting on random days mostly every morning, and sometimes from about 4pm onwards. My husband would probably say I have severe mood swings as well haha!
I’ve been feeling: a little down honestly. Overwhelmed? Busy with two kids, a job, and a household to maintain. I never thought I’d take this pregnancy easily, but I didn’t think it’s be this hard.
I’m most nervous about: going from 2 kids to 3. Haha! and that’s about it.
I am most looking forward to: my youngest becoming a big sister & her reaction to a baby along with my eldest becoming the “leader” of the babies. (In her own words)
Advice I’ve been given lately: be kind to yourself and do something for you. I think this is very important as mother’s we lose ourselves and who we are.
The hardest thing about being pregnant is: Lack of energy, nausea and not being able to enjoy this pregnancy like I have the last two.
My favourite part of being pregnant would be: when I found out, and feeling the fluttering begin which makes the pregnancy feel real.
When I think about how much my life will change, I feel: overwhelmed, excited & nervous.
If I could say anything to my baby right now it would be: I do love you, I do care, I do want you and we can’t wait till you are here.
