Pregnancy Journal: week 7
7/2/18 (7 weeks): Today was a rough day, but my sweet Aunt brought us dinner, and boy, let me tell you, it hit the spot!! We have been surviving on whatever crap we can prepare quickly, and whatever I can keep down or manage to even eat without puking, so it was such a wonderful change to have a real meal with real food! It tasted divine, and I kept it down, which was a great thing!
7/4/18 (7w2d): Today is a huge holiday for my family. I mean, we LOVE America, and we LOVE fireworks, so it doesn’t get much better lol. It might even be my favorite holiday after Christmas! We never do any massive BBQ with extravagant decor and super crazy food creations or anything, and we never get cutesy matching family pics, but boy…do we get together, eat, and blow stuff up!
Well, I was feeling horrific, spent all afternoon puking my guts out, and could barely stand, so we decided to stay home. It was so sad! Agh! I was on the phone with my dad, and had to hand the phone to Ben because I just kept puking out of nowhere lol. YAY.
Ben took me to get In N Out for dinner, and I barely ate a few bites, which is RARE lol! Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE In N Out!!
A friend of mine went live with her family’s fireworks, so I was able to enjoy that, at least. =D
I HAD to wear my cute shirt from Eek’s Attic, so we donned our 4th wear for our trip to In N Out lol!
7/7/18 (7w5d): Today was my grandma’s surprise 75th birthday party, that I was supposed to help with, but I was vomiting until we left to go over there. I so didn’t want to miss it, and it didn’t disappoint! I was so grateful for a small break in the crappiness to be able to spend some time with family and celebrate my sweet grandma. I started to feel the dizziness coming back, though, so I was also glad to get home and lie down lol.
(I didn’t even get to put on makeup, and I’m in my swimsuit & coverup, but oh well, right? ??♀️?)
7/8/18 (7w6d): Ugh. I paid for Saturday today. I was trying to get ready for church, and could NOT shake the dizziness and nausea, so we decided to stay home. It ended up being a good thing, because I promptly fell back asleep and was out cold for about 5 straight hours. I guess my body was needing the sleep lol.
This week was insanely difficult…emotionally and physically, it was the hardest yet. I’m so grateful for wonderful friends and family who listen to me cry and vent, and are always there to lift me up when I’m down. <3
