My first Pregnancy Progression photo. Fatigue and bathroom visits are crazy intense. I have never felt so tired in my life. Maybe the many trips to the bathroom at night are partly to blame. My temper has been extremely short and I get aggravated very easily. I am a no B.S. kind of person to begin with but this is a whole lot different. I’m sure my hormones will balance out and things will get back to normal soon. Thankfully I have no nausea. I do however get a little nauseous and feel pretty yucky if I don’t eat every so often. Small and frequent meals are exactly what I need. My Family Doctor confirmed my pregnancy and my due date is CHRISTMAS DAY! How amazing is that!
The moment this Pregnancy Test showed the words Pregnant all I could do was smile and laugh. I was pretty surprised even though we had been trying to conceive since I got off Birth Control last November. I just felt like we would never get our timing just right. With my Husband’s crazy work schedule and the fact that he works 1,000 miles away from home. I used a period tracking app that tracked ovulation as well. FINALLY he was home just long enough to catch the beginning of my ovulation window. I was unsure if the app had the days correct so I had to wait a couple of weeks for my period to arrive. Well….. It never arrived! We had Concieved! For the 2 weeks I didn’t know I was Pregenant, I had this extreme hunger for Chocolate and candy bars. I was really moody and short tempered. I was unsure if those were just symptoms of PMS, which I have had before. I did however, feel like God was sending me messages that I was Pregnant. It seemed like every TV commercial on many different channels were about Babies and Pregnancy. Even on my cell phone! There were tons of ads for pregnancy popping up everywhere and I had not been searching anything to do with that at the time. I know that God has a plan and purpose for all of us and I feel very grateful to be blessed with my very own child.
