Thank you, everyone, for all the well wishes!
I forgot how absolutely brain dead you get at times when you are pregnant! I can't concentrate on anything!! Did I take my prenatals? I think so..I'm not sure! Did I turn the stove off? I believe I did. IDK. Where are the boys? Did I just ask you where the boys were? AAHHHH!!!
And my headaches are unreal!! I usually only get them in the evening but they have me down for the rest of the night. Hubby got upset yesterday evening bc we were trying to finish up the Halloween decorations and I was laid out on the couch in pain, falling asleep! I'm sure it has something to do with my hormones.
I'm trying not to stress too much about my weight and eating. I eat pretty healthy for the majority of the time. I'm just SO. HUNGRY. ALL. THE. TIME!! I need to start carrying healthy snacks in my purse for when I'm 'starving' between meals. I just don't have any idea what I want!! I'm worried I'm eating too much, then not enough. I need to find a healthy balance somewhere!
My last pregnancy (5 yrs ago!) I only gained 20 lbs. I'm trying to remember what all I did and ate during that time but it was such a long time ago! I need to stop over thinking everything and just enjoy the pregnancy. Since I found out I am pregnant I've been feeling much better! I'm not tired all the time, I haven't been sick at all! Just a bad case of heart burn!
I had them check my thyroid levels again to make sure everything was ok. I never got a definite diagnosis when they were looking into it last time. My levels are good right now but they are going to keep an eye on it every couple of months.
I'm going to get a walk in this afternoon and then if my head allows, I found this pregnancy workout I'd like to try. I do not want to gain like I did with my first two! But I feel like I'm being obsessive about gaining!
Sorry if this was a jumbled mess! I'm having a bad case of baby brain right now!
