Pre-Natal Self-Care for baby #6
This blog will be used to journal my pre-natal care, pregnany milestones, fears, joys, and feelings throughout the next 36 weeks of my pregnacy with baby bean #6.
Weeks Gestation: 4 weeks 2 days
Folic acids: Yes, in the form of spinach in my smoothies and fresh green veggies!
I believe I am around 4 weeks and am basing this on when Ibelieve we conceived (February 23rd). So far, I haven't experienced any nausea. I feel fantastic! I definitely get tired throughout the day, especially after eating. Billy has been so sweet lately. He's taken over my duties quite often and just let me go lay down and rest. What a sweet hubby!
I ended up not using keytone stripes during my last pregnancy, but I do think I am going to order them and chart my results this time around just for my own records (curiosity). So...will be ording those in a bit.
I'm drinking about 1.5 liters of water a day...just can't seem to get enough of it! Love my H2O!!
Craving fruit like crazy and anything FRESH! Hating salty food and meat at the moment.
We told the kiddos we we're pregnant and they are all excited. It is neat to see each of their reactions to the idea of adding to our family. To Rylan it is no big deal. Nolan and Gideon are shining with joy and tell everyone we meet that I am expecting. Layla continuously rubs my belly and tells me how much she loves the new baby and Licoln has learned the word "baby" and pats my tummy.
Tonight, Layla crawled up in my lap and asked me to show her what the baby looks like. She loves checking in on the 3D pic of the embryo development I have posted on my blog....me too. hehe
I can't tell you how much joy Billy and I have about adding to our family. I feel so blessed.
