My Miracle Morning #69

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.

My Affirmations

  • 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!

My Miracle Morning #67

So a quick update. I am now 12 weeks pregnant and things are looking up. At about 10 and a half weeks my morning sickness disappeared. So that was a huge relief because I was being hit hard with morning sickness. But then I came down with a very bad cold that took over a week to get over. Then to top it off A got the same cold but worse. He spent 24 hrs with a fever and is still dealing with the aftermath of coughing and snot. But we are all on the mend now and D seems to have avoided the bug so far.

My mornings are in a little bit of a mess. I have found that I need at least 10 hrs of sleep a night right now to function. So I am working on getting to bed earlier so that it is possible for me to wake up at least or 6 am. Also with the return of myself, I hope to start exercising in the morning as well.

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

My Miracle Morning #65

So I am still alive! The last few days I have been dealing with some pretty intense nausea that starts about when I get up and tends to come and go throughout the day till I go to sleep at night. If I’m lucky I end up puking and I get some relief from nausea. I have been able to keep food and water down so it isn’t medically serious just a big annoyance. I am trying to eat healthily, but in the morning about the only thing I can keep down is bagels. Also, there is a smell of barbecue currently in my kitchen that I can’t seem to get rid of and it isn’t helping any. But other than that everything has been going great!

This morning I woke up at 5:30 am after going to bed at 8 pm. Oh ya, I am still getting really tired very early in the evening and have a tendency to go to bed early. My nausea kicked in almost at once and I have been sipping lemon water and waiting for it to settle before I eat my bagel.

My Affirmations:

  • I will respond calmly and rationally when my son asks for my attention.
  • I will code for at least 30 mins today.

I hope you have a wonderful day!

My Miracle Morning #57

This morning I woke up at 5 am! I think my body is starting to get used to the new hormone levels at least sleep wise. I still have nausea and heartburn on and off throughout the day. Heartburn is the worst, having stomach acid coming up your throat, sometimes even making it into your mouth. I would really rather just throw up. But mostly I just have nausea which I can work with, the heartburn/throwing up usually waits to strike till around 8 pm.

My morning yoga was Prenatal Yoga | First Trimester Flow for Experienced Students with Briohny Smyth.

Affirmations:

  • I will respond calmly and rationally when my son asks for my attention.
  • When I see something out of place I will take the time to put it away right then.
  • I am a strong, intelligent woman who is not afraid to talk to people about what matters to me.
  • I will code for 30 mins today.
  • I am a loving wife and mother to my family. I radiate love.
  • I am a safe vessel for my new baby to grow in. I will have an easy pregnancy.

My visualization today is of my family happy with money in the bank and a healthy baby in my arms.

I hope you have a wonderful Monday!

My Morning Miracle #34

Today’s Miracle Morning:

Last night I had insomnia again and forgot to set my alarm so I got to sleep in till 8 am. So my morning has been a little disrupted. First I had to make A breakfast then in the middle of meditation A had an accident that I had to go take care of it. Then when I was getting ready to do some yoga, A had another accident that I had to take care of. Since the universe seems to be telling me that today’s morning isn’t going to go as planned I am going to make myself a large cup of coffee and move on to other things. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

I hope your morning is going better than mine.

My Morning Miracle #33

Today’s Miracle Morning:

This morning I woke up at 6 am. The last couple of days my mornings have been different. I let myself sleep in and after I woke up I would have to start making breakfast right away. But I really needed the extra sleep over the holiday and I survived barely! But now that Christmas is over and I am no longer focused on making a memorable holiday for A. Things should get back to normal. To help kickstart normal I will be dragging D and A on a Hike-it-Baby hike today to get everyone outside! Also, it will help me get back out hiking. With A’s busy schedule hikes didn’t happen as often as they should have.

This morning D joined me and our meditation was Guided Meditation For Letting Go ♥ Day 5.

Our morning yoga was Best Yoga For All Levels ♥ Easy Peaceful Flow. This yoga video was surprisingly challenging even with it’s slow and steady pace and easy poses.

Affirmations:

  • I will respond calmly and rationally when my son asks for my attention.
  • When I see something out of place I will take the time to put it away right then.
  • I am a strong, intelligent woman who is not afraid to talk to people about what matters to me.
  • I will code for 30 mins today.
  • I am a loving wife and mother to my family. I radiate love.

I rewrote my affirmations because I felt that they had lost some of their potency and needed to be refreshed. Making them shorter and more concise also helps me keep my mornings shorter and to the point.

My visualization today is of my family happy with money in the bank and a baby in my arms. A has been asking for a sibling and for the last eight months, we have been unable to make that happen. But even though my tests came back perfectly normal they won’t consider testing D for another three months. Even D thinks that it’s crazy for them to want to wait to get him tested. So I am thinking happy thoughts and making D take his multivitamin.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and have a happy Monday!
