Update » Hands Full + Expecting

by dietingfashion on October 17, 2012

Hello Everyone!

It’s been about a month and a half since I posted on this blog. I feel really bad for not updating with any thing. Well from this post’s title, you might have guessed it: I’m expecting!

I am 20 weeks along and this pregnancy will be my third for those readers who did not know. We have been trying for over 6 months and there was a time when I thought I couldn’t conceive. Along with my expanding waistline, this pregnancy has been very different from my previous two.

I was a rock with my first two – no morning sickness, no cravings. This pregnancy has been filled with moments of illness, nausea, cramps, back aches, and intense hip pain. And I’m only half way through!

My cravings have intenstified way much more than before. With my first two pregnancy, I didn’t really crave for anything except sweets. I didn’t have an aversion to anything either. This third pregnancy – I dislike fish and beef! In the beginning, the look and smell of fish and beef set me off – it was uncontrollable nausea. Very strange.

Usually, the last two months of pregnancy really becomes difficult due to the weight gain, belly size, and the braxton hicks. But my aches and pains started much earlier – as early as 10 weeks. My hips and back are oh so achy! I feel decrepit! My doctor said this is normal for third pregnancies because my body just knew what to do to prepare for labor – my body just went from normal to accelerated mode.

I’m going to start blogging bits by bits now that I’m feeling up better. Lots of things are going on the last quarter of this year. I have so much stuff planned that I feel I need some sort of miracle. In a couple of days, I’ll be heading off to Vegas for a 2 day convention. Twenty-five days later, the four of us are going to Disney World. Then it’s Emma’s Birthday, Christmas and finally after New Year’s will be Megan’s Birthday. So much fun filled days with lots of planning still to come.

Oh and a lagniappe from Kohls!

Congratulations on baby #3, Helen! I know exactly how you feel. I am 20 weeks along with my third too – and it is totally different from the first two. My family and I will be doing some travelling this pregnancy as well, so it’ll be quite exciting (or maybe not so much). Take it easy and hope you enjoy the rest of your pregnancy. 🙂
