25 Weeks Pregnant

Taken at 25 Weeks, 3 Days

How Far Along? 25 Weeks, 6 Days

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nuh uh!

Food Cravings? Nothing I can think of... I mean, aside from Mexican food of course. (Mmmm Mucho Burrito...) This is a well known fact apparently, as even my (almost) 7 yr old nephew asked me the other day why the baby likes jalapenos so much. He's the cutest.

Mood? Really good! At the end of last week I felt a head cold coming on and I totally killed that sucker with Vitamin D and other natural supplements. I LOVE beating a cold before it starts. Now, the past couple of days I've had a bit of a cough, but I'll take that any day over a full on sinus cold! My mood was also instantly boosted when we put up our gorgeous, wonderful smelling tree on Saturday. It's the best tree I've ever seen!

Working Through Fears Of Miscarriage

I recall not long ago (but long before I was pregnant) I was reading a blog by one of my favorite bloggers who had recently announced she was expecting. One of her first posts after announcing was a post dedicated to how difficult it was for her to announce the pregnancy to the world because she still feared miscarrying. At the time I felt quite sad for her, that she would be so held down by fear. My own sister walked through two miscarriages before she had her first child and through her experiences I learned how common miscarriages are- how normal it is to lose a baby in the early weeks.

That's hard to even type. How normal it is to lose a baby?

Fast forward to the day we found out we were pregnant. We were ecstatic. Nothing but pure joy filled our hearts. I spent the day on a happy little cloud... until that very night when I saw the tiniest amount of blood when I used the washroom. Enter: Panic. One of my closest friends had just walked through a miscarriage less than two weeks prior to this. The memory of her nervous texts about spotting were now screaming in my ear.

24 Weeks Pregnant

Taken at 24 Weeks, 3 days

How Far Along? 24 Weeks, 6 Days

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope

Food Cravings? Oh gosh, this one is embarrassing. Pizza pops. There. I said it. Baby, why do you so love the processed foods?? 

Mood? Oh you know... so so... It's been a challenging week guys. What with Chris getting through the end of semester crunch, a couple of challenges with a friend, and then to top it off we stayed at my sister's house for 3 days to watch their kids while they are on vacation- just being uprooted and thrown into someone else's routine can throw a person through a loop, ya know? All these things are fairly minor on their own, but you mash them all together in a blender with pregnancy hormones and you've got preggo mama meltdown on your hands. Thankfully I have a husband who has seen this before and knows just what to do. Get me a stuffin pop from Sobey's, let me cry a little and then plop me in a hot tub- huge perk of staying at my sister's!! (Before you speak, yes I am aware of the cautions of being in a hot tub while pregnant. Do not worry, I have done all my research and was very careful to stay in for only a few minutes at a time and not allow my body temperature to raise too high)
