Feeling a bit worried, anxious, excited and tired! But Mostly I feel well, sure, I’m tired and achy and sleep involves a minimum of 5 pillows, but otherwise well. It’s hard to work on anything, except bustling around the house, putting away things, washing things. I understand it’s typical of the last week of pregnancy to do nesting. I do laundry, and waddle around picking things up around the house. Soon a little girl will come and she will take over every minute of my day and night for some time. My hospital and the baby bag are not packed. Hmmm… Will start packing soon.
Allan my son has been very good… helping me cleaning and picking up things around the house. Sometimes if he wants more attention he will start do something you know.. like little baby…. Have been missed his story time at night quite a number of days… what I do is having him start memorizing “The Lord Prayer”… easier for me… and surprisingly after a few days memorizing together, he can recite half of it until “as it is in heaven” the rest a bit here and there la… Told him that by the time the baby comes out he must be able to teach the whole prayer to the baby. Hubby has been quite busy with his project going on… come home late sometimes. I’m Still working and driving… fetching my son from school (only if hubby can’t make it). All the things happening I thank God for everything.
People say that “First time moms are afraid of the unknown, while the second timers are afraid because they do know.” Whew! The last six weeks! Read lots of birth stories lately.
It’s been 3 years since my first birth and it was still fresh in my mind. I remember having my bible verse during my labor. Meditate on it and rest in His presence. Really works for me its help me not to concentrate so much on the pain. Besides…. God’s word is a living word. I was so bless having an easy and smooth delivery for my 1st child. I plan to use the same verse with a bit of extra verse for my 2nd one. Other than prayer from friends and Cell Group I have been meditating Psalm 63 & Psalm 66. So wonderful and relaxing. Plan to use this for my labor as well.
Now he is 3 years 4 months
I have put on weight. .I love the fact that my skin looks brighter than usual (just like I have always wanted) and my hair are so shiny. People told me that I looked different – that I looked radiant.
Have itchy skin, particularly around the belly.
Pregnancy can bring on a flood of conflicting feelings. Even though you’re overjoyed by the new life growing inside you, there may be days when you’re so frustrated by your body getting bigger that you can’t wait for the whole thing to be over. Women who’ve had the pregnancy blues often say it’s hardest in the beginning when you may just look like you’ve put on weight.
I’m back on track…
Wow! I’m almost out of the first trimester! It’s really hard to believe. Next week I will be 3 months pregnant.
For the past 2 months I’ve felt extra tired… really tired. I feel nauseous almost all the time, throwing up.. but nothing very bad at all… it’s more annoying than anything else. I have to go to the bathroom often. Fun, fun, fun! Really, I like being pregnant!
Nothing exciting has happened. Allan (almost 3) acts likes a baby sometimes… he is very cheeky, cheerful little boy. We talk about baby in mamma’s tummy. He makes little baby sounds and “insists” on being picked up. There was another time when he laid on the ground and made baby sounds. I wonder how many children do this???
My hubby was quite busy ever since he took over the manager position. But beside his busyness he still helps me with the house work and cooking. Praise God for a kind and supportive husband.
I don’t feel very nauseous any more! Yayh!! But I still have to make sure I eat often enough. One day I went too long without eating and my face got sweaty, and I felt really weak. Sometimes when I feel hungry, no matter what I eat the hungry feeling is still there.
My tummy is showing. With my first pregnancy I took longer time to show. This time I can see my tummy growing big a bit faster, and it just seems to be getting bigger and bigger. My pants are tight, and I can’t wear most of them.
