7 weeks pregnant ๐Ÿ’™

January 14th week7

Hi guys! So Iโ€™m almost approaching week 8 and I feel so good. Iโ€™m suffering slightly with the mood swings and Iโ€™m so emotional I almost cried when Connor knocked over some nail polishes at my dads this week, and shed a tear at a girl singing on the voice which then prompted mum, luke and me to burst out laughing!

My diabetes is all over the place this week, I remember in the early stages of being pregnant with Connor it took a while to control my bloods and learn the adjustments. So this time round Iโ€™m trying to be really hot on it and Iโ€™m testing my blood sugar levels every couple of hours and writing the results in the back of my diary ready for my diabetic clinic appointment on the 2nd Feb! Iโ€™m hoping my midwife and doctor who will be helping me through my pregnancy will be able to advise me on how to keep my bloods down and teach me a couple of tips and tricks.

Emotional state- like I said above Iโ€™m suffering a little with the mood swings and emotional hormones going through my body at the moment. Overall Iโ€™m ok Iโ€™m happy and calm but itโ€™s a quick switch when something happens or is said, then I have to work quite hard to snap myself out. Iโ€™m not as sore this week that symptom seems to have calmed, but when I press around my chest it does still feel achy and sore. I had my first experience of morning sickness this week! I was sat at work on Wednesday morning and a really sick feeling came over me that if I was over the toilet Iโ€™m pretty sure Iโ€™d have been sick. It didnโ€™t last too long though maybe half an hour tops and I havenโ€™t had anything since that morning. Whilst I was pregnant with Connor I didnโ€™t have any morning sickness whatsoever so Iโ€™m wandering if this time around Iโ€™ll get something. This week the tiredness has hit in full force, all I want to do is be in bed!

Cravings- no cravings as of yet other than fruit, which is strange because that was a craving with Connor! Iโ€™m still bloating like a balloon.

Things that are irritating me- the irritations have calmed this week slightly, Iโ€™m just a little touchy. Chewing has always been a pet peeve of mine but that seems to be at an all time high at the moment!

Tummy changes- my tummy is starting to go slightly hard right at the bottom especially when Iโ€™m stood up. I definitely donโ€™t have a bump but I think where Iโ€™m bloating every time I eat it kinda looks like I have a really little bump.

Facts Iโ€™ve learnt from google- so as I said last week Iโ€™m googling everyyyyythingggg! Iโ€™ve learnt a couple of things this week, 1 being I can still eat shop bought sushi which is a dream for me as I eat a lot of sushi. As long as the raw fish has been frozen previously to kill any kind of bacteria then itโ€™s all good. All supermarket sushi will have been frozen before going on the shelves so thatโ€™s safe and if I happen to get it from a restaurant I just have to ask. The second thing Iโ€™ve learnt is actually quite painful for me, and itโ€™s that I can only drink 3 cups of tea/coffee a day!!! I am a tea coffee addict so this morning when I wanted my second cup of tea at 9.37am I had to stop myself as I need to spread the cups out ๐Ÿ˜‚ itโ€™s the worst!!

Iโ€™ve had lots of apps through the post this week- I have a midwife app on the 29th jan, a clinic app on the 2nd Feb and my 3 month scan came through for the 20th Feb which Iโ€™m going to have to change as Iโ€™ll be at work. Although itโ€™s weird to think by the time you guys are reading this all these apps will be over and done with and Iโ€™ll be in to my second trimester!๐Ÿ˜ฑ

By Tuesday Iโ€™ll be in my 8th week, Iโ€™m so excited to be pushing the 3 month mark it still seems ages away but it really isnโ€™t. Once Iโ€™m there Iโ€™ll be feeling better, I wonโ€™t be as worried and then the secret can come out!

Baby B is the size of a jelly bean this week!
