I've never realized how quickly time flies until now. I feel like I just found out I was pregnant and five weeks along yesterday. Somehow ten weeks have gone by since then! Sheeshmaneesh.
I read last night that our little munchkin is about the size of a lemon or a pear and can now rub it's eyes, yawn and even blink! It can also grab the umbilical cord (maybe that's why I have random aches and pains down in the tummy region lately). I'm excited cause now baby can hear me when I'm talking to it - which admittedly I do constantly! :)
I still can't really eat dinner these days. I'm blessed to not have the sickness in the mornings but boy do I have some form of it just about every night. I've finally found a system that helps though - I get the bulk of my calories and weight gaining foods in at lunchtime so I don't have to feel guilty when I can't eat that much at dinner. I think it's helping - I got on the scale this morning and I finally gained another pound of the six pounds I lost at first. So I'm half way to my pre-pregnancy weight. Otherwise I'm just trying to make sure I'm drinking water constantly - which never used to be a problem until now for some reason.
I'll be honest... growing a baby is hard work ya'll. It's going to be so worth it when we finally get to meet the cutest baby ever, but man! Whenever I'm not an emotional mess, I'm in physical pain. I'm always exhausted - not just tired - exhausted. I'm just a mess... an utter mess. It's a wonder I have friends. Haha.
I feel like God uses a pregnancy to get you prepared for all that you'll be feeling with a newborn. That's what I've decided any way. I wake up around 5/6am every morning and can't get back to sleep and then because of my work schedule don't get any kind of nap in and I run myself ragged until about 6:30pm. By then I'm spent - done.
This week I'm going to try an experiment and try to sleep based on baby and see how I feel then. So I'll probably become an early riser and an early sleeper which is the opposite of how I'd like it to be, but oh well. Baby gets what baby wants (for now).
All you who've been pregnant (or currently are) - how did you make sure you got enough sleep?
