Is it possible to get more excited every week? I seem to fall in love with this new baby more and more as each new week goes by. I was laying on the couch last night having fun at my Usborne online party, and just stopped to watch my tummy move all around. Every baby is such a precious miracle. Now that I’ve been around more women who struggle with infertility, it makes it even more real to me of how amazing it is that I have a baby in my womb. My heart goes out to every mother who wants to be pregnant but just has not been able to conceive.
Here is our little Christmas tree! Sean grew up with Santa and christmas trees, I grew up with no Santa and most years no christmas trees. We have really prayed and experimented with what we feel is best for our family over the years. We eventually want to get a little bit bigger tree, but we don’t want something that is overwhelming. The focus is on Advent, and reading stories all month long about Jesus being born, playing with our Little People Nativity set, etc.
I was just thinking that I needed to order some liquid Chlorophyll to start taking, when I received an email from Beeyoutiful company that they were offering free shipping on any order, today only. Yay! I always have taken their brand, so I know I can handle the taste. I normally struggle with being anemic the last trimester, sometimes it gets so bad my midwife tells me I can’t have a home birth if I don’t quickly get my levels up. So I really need to get started on that.
I’m also going to order the Red Raspberry capsules to take. Last pregnancy I started taking 4-8 capsules a day during the third trimester, and I took the Evening Primrose Oil capsules the last month. It made such a difference in my labor, I’m definitely doing it again this time!
This week has been especially hard on my varicose veins. You can see all the blue veins in my foot in the picture. I’ve had to sit at the computer a lot, and it has made my veins really flare up even more. It just is part of pregnancy for me, so I deal with it the best I can.
How are all the pregnant mamas who are reading this doing?
