Welcome to the “My Pregnancy Journal” meme, so if you are a pregger blogging mama then you will definitely wanna link up.
It is hosted by Happenings of the Harper Household,
so head on over there to link up.
HI EVERYONE, This is the first week of me joining this meme and glad to be here and excited to read everyones' journal through each of your pregnancies.
Just a little background. I'm 28, married and have 2 girlies. My first pregnancy (at 19) was a complicated one and ended in an emergency c-sec. My 2nd (at 25) and developed GD and was ignorant and agreed to a scheduled c-sec. So, now here I am at 28. I wanted to be at a lower weight, but I got preggo at 185 and we found out on New Years Day and at 7 weeks I was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes, UGH! So, lets continue...
12 WEEKS PREGNANT
About me & MoyashiSymptoms: This week I have done a bit more walking... just going shopping and doing it FASTER than normal. Cause of that I feel that I have been out of breath more often. After I got back from shopping today, my sister called and I had to stop and take a deep breath while talking to her.
Nausea has slowed down, it was TERRIBLE the past few weeks, I just felt sick all the time. I feel a little better but still just ICKY.
I haven't been diagnosed, but I know I have Dysgeusia (after taste before and after eating ANYTHING) That is so freaking annoying. I think something will satisfy me, but it doesn't. I find that bread, croutons and pastas leave me the worst after taste.
Headache! I guess I figured out that what was causing my headaches (I've had like 3 episodes of horrible headaches) was just caffeine withdrawal. And it did calm down today. (I had a sip of Pepsi today)
Weight Gain: I have been 189 for the past 2 1/2 weeks. So, for me that is good.
Cravings: I wish I had cravings... anything and everything I think I am craving just makes me feel sick afterwards because of the Dysgeusia.
Food Aversions: EVERYTHING... I actually don't want to eat anything because I know it won't taste good to me.
What made me cry this week: My headache (I had 2 days ago), I just laid in bed and cried... I did some deep breathing and it kind of went away.
Medical Stuff: Like I mentioned before. I am condiered obese and I have GDM (Gestational Diabetes Mellitus).
Thoughts from the family: My 3 year old was playing and brought me one of her old bibs for the baby... and she has been giving my belly kisses (gently) a little more, which I think will just increase as my belly grows.
My 7 year old hasn't really given much thought to another sibling I guess... but she's been busy with school testing and stuff.
Hubs... just loves to rub my belly and call the baby "Moyashi" ugh
Something I am excited about this week: Holy cow I'm 3 freaking months! I am excited to hear how my cousins baby shower goes this weekend. My grandmother is going, but we won't be able to go.
