8 Weeks Pregnant

Well here I am to check in with the weekly progress of our Rainbow. To us, each day is a blessing. I praise our Lord for allowing me to carry this precious miracle every day. It's crazy how one huge event in your life and change your view on the entire outlook of life. Before I had Dakota and she gained her wings, I didn't appreciate the privilege it is to carry a child. I feel that when you're blessed with a tiny human, it's not something you're meant to do, but something you're allowed to do. God gives and he takes, but I can thank him enough for everything this journey has taught me.

I've become more passionate about life itself. I am less dramatic than what I was once before. At this point in my life, I go with the flow even if I don't like it. 

So week 7 was brighter. I was able to stay out of bed for most of the day instead of laying around all day. I hate that. I had a cold there for a while which made it a little harder on me. My biggest things that I am dealing with now are fatigue, heartburn, and constant cravings. It's weird because I have been craving anything meat. I've really wanted steak lately the most. Why I find this weird is because my two girls had me craving pickles. 

I've been allowing myself to begin celebrating. For the past few weeks I have been afraid to be happy. I felt like if I started to celebrate, something bad would happen. It seems like in the past every time I had something which made me super happy.... it was taken away from me. This time, however, is different because my faith in Christ is stronger and I look to him for everything. 

Well, there's the update. I thank you for following along with me on this journey.

  5. I craved pork chops with Clay! It was also the only thing i could eat and keep down, so I ate it for breakfast, lunch and dinner for a month lol. With Sydney I craved Peach-Os (those peach flavored gummy circles lol), nacho Slim Jims, and Sunkist... at the same time. With Beck I craved meat again, but it didn't matter what kind. So, im calling Boy now!

  6. I ate pork chops for breakfast, lunch and dinner for a month when I was pregnant with Clay. With Beck it was meat, too, but it didn't matter what kind as long as it was red - beef and bacon!! With Sydney i craved peach flavired gummies, nacho slim jims, and Sunkist. I'm calling boy for you now!
