Oh baby

I had my first dream about you.  It was amazing because it felt so real.  You were a cute little chocolate drop with curly hair and you were a girl.  Of course mommy will be happy with whatever gender you are (boy or girl) but in my dream you were a girl.  I was multitasking of courseI was holding you and catering to you but also completing things around the house.  I also remember running my mouth and having a lot of people over as I was carrying you.  Everyone was in love with you and I woke up with the same feeling.  I love you, pumkin.

Side note. Mommy’s head ache and acne has been something else this week.  You must be a girl because you’re taking away from my looks  and energy LBS! But I don’t mind at all.  Xo

I can’t believe how big you are! Looking back at our first ultrasound pic amazes me... mommy and daddy can see your head, arms, legs and back! Although I couldn’t upload it, I have the cutest video of you dancing and moving around. Praying for you every day as you get bigger in Jesus name. We have your doc appointment in the morning:) I will update and let you guys know how it goes! Xo

I’ll be honest. Mama has been a grump these past 3 days. It’s literally the fact that my hormones are rising, I have hormonal acne.. which is a first... and my self-care is low. I was telling my mom over the weekend that I have to learn new ways to have fun and let my hair down. Pregnancy is such a beautiful thing, and I am obsessed with the changes that are happening. However, my self-care used to be sitting in the sauna and meditating, jumping in the hot tub and relaxing, or kicking back socializing while enjoying a glass of wine. Now, I have to learn new ways to engage in self-care.. I have to figure this out quick because I don’t like being grumpy and I am very cautious over the energy that I have and how the baby can feel it. Prayer and devotions are my life and will forever be my Spiritual self-care.. mama just has to figure out what physical (besides gym and sex) more so being out and about in the community can I do while being pregnant almost in second trimester. Ahhh, we will see... God is good

We have 2 more weeks left and we will be out of first trimester!  Wow, how fast time flies.   It's so much easier to think about each trimester being 13 weeks total.  It also helps me think about the process of my body changing and how big you're getting each trimester.  Tink, I can already tell that you're getting bigger.  My tummy is becoming more round and I am still feeling the symptoms of my hormones changing. 

Symptoms of week 10:

Currently, mommy is experiencing acne for the first time of my life.  I am still experiencing tender boobs and it is still difficult for the water pressure to hit my chest in the shower. Ouch!  Mommy is working on not being so moody with others but tink, its hard:) pray for me!  My appetite is off, I don't really crave meat but greens and sweets are my go to! yikes.  Luckily, nausea has passed! Although, I didn't experience much morning sickness. I am CONSTANTLY tired, even when I go to bed early too!  Between me and you, Tink, I think you're a boy and I will LOVE you no matter what.

Like woa

I got a phone call right after our ultrasound and it was my nurse telling me that all my results came back perfect.  However, the radiologist saw a potential fibroid in the picture.  I was a wreck for a couple of days but then I realized that our God is a great God and he has blessed us by placing you in my womb.  Cast all your fears on him and thats exactly what I did.  The doctor wanted to meet with us and she told us more about the fibroid and my uterus and basically told us that the fibroid will not affect the pregnancy as the fibroid is on the outer layer of my uterus.  She had no concerns or worries and we were blessed to hear the news.  It's amazing how things can frighten us and how quickly we jump into panic mode but then God restores us and leaves us with more faith than before.  We serve an awesome God! I learned a lot about fibroids, and it makes sense considering my cycles used to be so BAD!  I also learned that most women have fibroids in the inner layer of the uterus and typically have to have a C-Section.  I was glad to hear that it was common and that you're growing as healthy as can be.

Oldie but Goodie

We got our first ultrasound at week four (although we are 10 weeks today).  It was my turn to cry since daddy cried like a big cute baby after reading the pregnancy test…but tink,  I cried like a baby at your first ultrasound.. the fact that your heart beat was so clear and the rate was 120 at 4 weeks was amazing.  I was nauseous from about week 3 to week 6 and then it went away. Mama still had to deal with some other symptoms and still dealing with them but they’re getting better.  I figured I would be the first one to post your cute leeetle selfie.  I can’t wait for you to read this one day and hopefully pass down to your children J
