Feeling really blessed to have typed that up in the Title bar (-: Yes, I am well aware that I have a LONG way to go, but I'm feeling good and hopeful! I am having some symptoms, but nothing too crazy.
* sore chest...very, very sore...
* tired pretty much all the time
* have to use the bathroom it feels like every 10 minutes
* every now and then a twinge of nausea
* hungry every minute of the day
I am still trying to continue with my diet and exercise. I am still exercising 4 days a week and trying to eat healthily. The weekends are harder for eating as healthy as I want to, but I'm doing pretty good! I think the exercise is helping with the fatigue and I feel so much better after leaving the gym. I am so glad that I had five weeks of constant exercise and healthy eating to prepare me for this.
I am still over analyzing and scared at every little cramp or pull, but I know that it is all completely normal and trying to deal with it. Someone asked me the other day if I was letting myself get excited about this pregnancy and I can honestly say that I am not sure when that will happen. 12 weeks? 20 weeks? 24 weeks? Just not sure. We are taking it one day at a time because everyday for me being pregnant is a blessing.
Nick and I are without a kitchen for 3 weeks or so as ours is getting a makeover! It is exciting, but I just hope I can maintain my healthy eating. It is going to take some creativity for sure as of course cooking anything is not an option. Any creative ideas?!? As we speak I have spent most of my day off in the back bedroom with Sadie just relaxing and watching tv. It has been a much needed day of nothingness! Now to get ready to go to the gym in a couple of hours (-:
