So this morning I was woken up around 3:30 am by A climbing into bed with us. Normally I would just roll over and go back to sleep, but this morning I was unable. So after an hour and a half of trying to get back to sleep, I just got up. This is the first time I have been able to wake up at 5 am since my pregnancy symptoms started. I am now 14 weeks pregnant and my symptoms have lessened. I still get tired out quickly and have bouts of nausea, but the vomiting now is only when a strong bad odor triggers it and tends to only happen first thing in the morning. So hurray for dry heaving! I have been having issues with drinking water so have switched to lime flavored seltzer water. The carbonation and the citrus flavor seem to be helping and hopefully, I will be able to go back to water and lemon water soon.
It has also helped I think that yesterday I had the energy to start deep cleaning the kitchen. I was able to empty, wipe, and replace every shelf and just have the fridge to finish cleaning today. I also pulled out the stove and cleaned under it, that was really gross. But the icky smell that has been plaguing me has lessened and I hope with the fridge finished it will disappear entirely. Now to get D to learn how to deep clean so next time he can do it.
My morning yoga was PREGNANCY YOGA: EPISODE 1.
My morning meditation was the first episode of the pregnancy series on headspace.
- I will be calm and patient when dealing with A today.
- I will code at least 30 minutes
- I will take the time to eat a healthy balanced diet
- I will work on homework for 30 minutes
- I will take the time to put things away
My visualization today is of a happy healthy baby after an easy natural birth.
I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
