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!
