Pregnancy diaries - Week 7*

So I know this is supposed to be week 6 but I have been labeling my weeks wrong. Whilst at the start of this week, I was 6 weeks pregnant, I was actually in my 7th week of pregnancy. Apologies for the confusion haha

Week 7: 

Week seven has started out amazingly. I had my first cry free day! I seem a lot happier and the little things aren't getting to me like they have been. I am loving being my happy little self again and I am sure Ben appreciates it too!  

Food: some days I can't get enough of it, other days I can't stand the site of it. It's not consistent at all... one day I will want to eat everything in site and have to eat every hour to control my hunger and that will last for three days and then I'll have two days where I don't want to eat anything at all and I have to force feed myself to make sure I am getting enough nutrients for me and the baby. 

Boobs: getting bigger and heavier by the day. Some days they are so tender and because they're so heavy, it's actually hard to move. This part isn't fun... but they look good at least! 

Emotions: definitely a little more on the positive side but still overreacting to silly little things. It is really not fun having no control over your emotions.

Sickness: Still no morning sickness! Yay. Fingers crossed I'm one of the lucky ones! 

Exhaustion: Oh my gosh. Never have I been so tired in my entire life. I've had to get up and walk around at work to stop myself from falling asleep at my desk, tripled my rest time at the gym (whilst trying not to fall asleep between sets), I always want an afternoon nap even though it doesn't always happen but lying down and just resting makes me feel better. 

Insomnia: I've been waking up at 4am every single morning for the last two weeks and I can never get back to sleep. My alarm doesn't go off until 6am so I feel like I am missing out and this is adding to me being so tired. Cannot win. However what I did win was an amazing partner who decided to set his alarm for 4am knowing I would be awake so he could call me and tell me he loves me. Could he get any more amazing?

Loving being pregnant and just want it to be time for our first scan so we can see our little man (we are convinced baby is a boy... )

*Tomorrow on the blog - Week 8!

  1. It's good at this stage your emotions are finally under control more or less! I also thought it was so cute when you told me that Ben set his alarm at 4am so you could chat!!! Aww, he really is such a supportive guy! So happy you two will make the most amazing parents x
