Thoughts


From Saturday evening until this morning, I had the never.ending. headache.  Brandon went to the football game Saturday evening with a friend and I worked.  Once I was home, I curled up on the couch and watched Once Upon a Time on Netflix (love this show!).  Five episodes later, my head was still killing me.  Once I woke up yesterday morning, the headache was still ever present.  Once both church services were over, we grabbed some lunch and came home.  We both fell asleep for over two hours.  Of course, I was supposed to go back to church for a baby shower and then a night service, but I was exhausted.  Once I got in bed last night, the headache was still pounding and I was hungry (again).  Brandon fed me a snack pack in bed and then I passed out.  I woke up today and the headache seems to be gone-PTL!  I don't know what caused the yucky headache, but I'm glad it's gone.

My appetite is still strong, but I continue to maintain my same weight.  =)  My fear has been gaining too much weight early on in the pregnancy.  I read that in the first trimester, a pregnant woman does not require any additional calories.  My eating habits have always been poor, and I have never been a big fan of breakfast, and would sometimes also skip lunch.  I hope that I'll keep my current eating habits after pregnancy.  I have so much energy throughout the day from having my breakfast smoothie and making sure to eat snacks throughout the day (almost every hour)!

Brandon is leaving out of town again this week.  He is driving to Mississippi tomorrow and returning home on Thursday.  He's been nervous about leaving me after his trip last week when I started spotting.  Just a few moments ago, he told me that he prayed himself to sleep last night.  He said that he won't let himself worry while he is out of town.  We still have many people who continue to pray for us and this precious baby growing inside of me.  I don't want him to ever worry, but it makes me happy that he is so invested in our pregnancy.  I know that my husband is not like many other expectant fathers.  He has been attached to this  pregnancy from the moment we saw two lines on the pregnancy test.  It is so easy for us to worry, but we know that God is in control of it all.  Each day, we will continue to thank and praise God for this miracle.

  1. It's amazing how our eating habits are thrown into such sharp focus when we're pregnant?! I realized just how few vegetables I eat, so I started to drink V8 Fusion: 1-2 glasses a day. Fruits and veggies in a glass :) and if just tastes like fruit. I also found creative (and tasty) ways to get my iron levels up when I started to get a little anemic: chocolate frosted mini wheats! 90% of your daily iron in one serving! So I snacked on those a LOT (the iron pills were disgusting).

  2. Totally off the subject. We haven't talked in a week, but I am finishing up a project at home and then I want to make the baby something special within the next few months.

  3. I'm glad that you are watching what you eat during your pregnancy. Too many of my friends had issues later in their pregnancies from gaining too much (60 pounds) and trying to push during labor. Hoping that this trip away from you will go well and without incident.

  4. Yuck, sorry about the bad headaches. I know what that's like; I've been a chronic headache sufferer for years. Only since starting IVF have my headaches significantly decreased because I've quit drinking caffeine. I still get them when the weather changes but they are definitely a lot less now that I don't drink coffee or pop - not even decaf coffee. But I would be happy to have a headache again if it meant I was pregnant! I hope you don't have to suffer any more headaches in your pregnancy.
