Much better

Got a really good night sleep last night so I am feeling so much better today. Think I’m going to have to try to stick to earlier nights from now on. Had my 8 week check up at the doctor’s today too. They took a whole 4 vials of blood out of me. I hate needles. I was very light headed for a while afterwards I can tell you. The niggly pains I’ve been having are probably just my bowel…ewww. Need to get DH to take an 8 week pregnancy photo of me later. Almost forgot actually.

Hi.
I want to write cool happy stuff but I just can’t.  I feel rotten. I have a stomach ache and I just don’t feel right. I’m so down and I don’t know how to lift my mood at the moment. I know it’s mainly hormones but that doesn’t really help. Here’s praying I feel better tomorrow.

Blanket no 2

This one’s my favourite so far. It’s much bigger than the last one. I finished it last night.

Sick

I woke up at 3am with a sore throat. Finally gave up and got up at 5am.  Feeling yuck. Have to go out this morning to an Avon meeting. Don’t feel like going but I have to. Planning to rejoin Avon to earn a bit more cash and I need to talk to the area manager first. Think I’m just going to go to the meeting then come home and go to bed.

Good Morning World

I just want to say good morning to the world. It is a glorious day. I thank God I am alive and able to experience all the wonderful things he has created.

Yesterday was a busy day. DH and DD went to a Worship Conference at church. The Church had got Russel Fragar over from America. Everyone seemed to enjoy it. People were impressed by DD’s input. She’s only 8 but was asking some good questions like how to fully worship God while still trying to play your instrument and is there any wrong way to worship God. I was very proud of my little munchkin.

While they were off at the conference I babysat my friends two kids so they could attend. DS was home as well. Actually he probably did most of the work. I was feeling particularly exhausted and was getting a few minor cramps.

Last night they had a worship conference at church which Russell Fragar led. It was really good and we had different denominations there too. I love seeing God’s people breaking down denominational barriers and worshipping God together.

On the way home we hired out a couple of DVD’s. DH and I watched one called Inkspell last night. It was strange but enjoyable. It was a fantasy.

Finally got to sleep about 1am. Hope I’m not getting insomnia again.

Got up at about 7am this morning and rushed around getting ready to get the kids to zone. We were about 20 minutes late. I hung out in the Chill out room while the kids went to Sunday School and worked on a baby blanket. Then we all went up to the 2nd service.

I conked out for a couple hours this afternoon but woke up with severe heartburn. Ouch. No real plans for tonight. Going to make some custard rice for dessert in a minute. Yum.

Luv and hugs

God Bless

Rewarding

Since I fell pregnant I’ve had little energy and almost zero motivation. The house is falling apart…well not literally but I’m getting behind in so much stuff. It’s depressing me no end. I use a reward system with the kids and it works…some of the time…so I thought I’d come up with a reward chart to try to motivate myself. Don’t know if it’ll work but I’m willing to try anything at the moment.  Basically I get stickers for doing the gardening, exercising, my morning, afternoon and night routines, my weekly house blessing, my daily to do lists and getting the washing done folded and put away. Once I get 20 stickers I can hire a DVD of my choice. 40 stickers is a trip to the cinema,  60 is candy from Darrell Lea, 80 is a bubble bath or take away for dinner and 100 is my favourite of all. I either get to go out for dinner or DH has offered to cook me a 3 course dinner of my choice. Looking forward to that one. Dh is a great cook. He is an ex chef after all. Well that’s about it for me today. I need to get the clothes off the line.

Luv and hugs

God Bless

Today has definitely been mostly unproductive. I’ve been tired a lot lately and I’ve been having trouble sleeping. I suppose it will pass eventually. I worked on the first blanket I’m making for Lil Peanut. It’s a zigzag crocheted one. I’ve gone for light purple and white. Purple is my favourite colour after all. I want to do another one in Apricot and white next. I will take a photo and post it when I’m finished.

I’ve decided to take regular photos as I go through this pregnancy. I took this one today. I’m five weeks pregnant. So that not baby weight yet. Actually I plan to lose a little fat off my tummy before it starts growing with Lil Peanut. I’m not overdoing it though. Just trying to walk more and do some light stomach exercises. Sometimes I think it may be a little wishful thinking that could trim up. One friend said I should just let myself get fat during the pregnancy and enjoy it. No way, not happening.

Anyhow I got things to do so I must be going.

Luv and Hugs

God Bless

I’m pregnant.

I found out yesterday that I am pregnant. I am so excited I just don’t know what to say. I think I may be a little obsessed though. I have bought some wool to start on a blanket for Lil Peanut (that’s Bub’s nickname for now) and I’ve printed off heaps off patterns already. Well that’s all I want to say for now.
