So this morning is looking like it is going to be a good one. I have been suffering from insomnia for the last couple nights and it had really thrown off my hormones. But, last night I was able to get a good 10 1/2 hours of sleep last night. A also slept for a good 12 hours so we are both rested. Yesterday it was so bad that I didn’t meet mt step goal, I took a nap in the morning, and I would burst into tears over anything, and poor A just wanted me to feel better and didn’t understand what was going on. But he did end up getting a donut because I had a horribly intense craving for apple pie filling, the store bought variety. So now I have an apple pie in my fridge. Oh well mostly my cravings have been protein based, I have upped my greens intake, and I am walking a lot so it should balance out.
I am also starting to actually get excited about this pregnancy. I have always been happy about it but it was hard to get excited. For one, it wasn’t new I had already researched everything with A and for another, the first trimester really sucked and the whole pregnancy so far has been hormones, stabbing pain from my round ligaments (normal from what I have read), and periodic dull pain from my c-section scar (also normal). The added discomfort really surprised me, it’s not something that people seem to talk about or that doctors warn you about, though they should, especially since it turns out that your scar tissue can fuse to your uterus and cause you to have extream pain throughout your next pregnancy because it is slowly being ripped from your uterus. Thank goodness I don’t seem to have that problem. So the reason I am getting excited because on Friday we will be finding out if we are having a girl or a boy. This is a new experience for us because with A we didn’t find out until he was born.
My exercise today is going to be a walk to the playground. A really needs to get out of the house for awhile.
- I will code for at least 30 mins
- I will work on school for at least 30 mins
- I will drink more water
- I will take at least 15,000 steps or bounces
- I will respond calmly and rationally when A asks for my attention
I hope you have a wonderful day!
