Happy New Year everyone! It’s been a month since I have made a post. It is so easy to get overtaken by the busyness of the holiday season, which I totally did. But there’s a bigger reason I have been not posting lately.
We are expecting another baby!
That’s right, baby #3 is coming, due on 7.20.2015. The last 7 weeks have been a roller coaster ride of nausea and exhaustion mixed in with holiday madness. It’s been real, but I have finally made it to the 12 week point and am starting to feel less sick. I still can’t believe how awful I have been feeling, I think it is much worse than my prior two pregnancies. It’s like getting run over by a steam roller. I literally can tell my body has been taken over by a little alien. At least it will be a cute and amazing little alien in just a few months!
We have decided we are not going to find out the sex of the baby. After having two boys, the thought of having a girl is somewhat terrifying to me. I know it is in my imagination, but it just seems like it will turn everything upside down. Plus, teenage girls terrify me and I would like to avoid that if at all possible. So we are going to wait to find out the au naturel way. I know once I see the baby I won’t have those irrational fears, so waiting makes the most sense.
For pregnancy nausea, I have been drinking this Organic Spiced Ginger Tea. It actually really helps! I have been struggling to eat healthy which boggles my mind. It’s the most important time to ever eat healthy, yet all I want some days is a cheeseburger. Usually if someone else makes food, I can eat it much easier than if I cooked it, so we have been eating take out frequently. Meal planning is something I am focusing on this week. Eating out too much makes me feel really heavy and gross after a while.
I’ve been using a lot of essential oils lately which has been great for helping me feel refreshed and centered. I had taken a break for a few months (more on that later) but it feels really great to be using them daily again.
Yesterday my son returned to school and I am excited to return to something which resembles my normal routine. I have a lot to share in the coming weeks (not all pregnancy stuff, have no fear 🙂 ) and am looking forward to reconnecting with all of you!
