Week 14


This week, I am feeling a lot better. With that said, I tried to eat chicken and I found myself still not really able to stomach it unless it is smothered in something. Such as BBQ sauce. My eating has been everywhere and it’s really starting to take a toll on me, mentally. I have just always been in such a good habit to food prep and have my shit together and have all my meals ready for the week and it’s literally just not happened. I find myself going out to lunch now, sometimes even breakfast. And I wish I could say that all of my meals are healthy, but they are far from it. I am thankful that I am still working out because lord knows what size I would be if my workouts were not offsetting all of the garbage I’m eating. In all honesty, they are not even offsetting what I’m eating, just merely cutting down some of the calories I’m intaking. I do not see how these super fit moms do it. I follow one mom, Diary of a Fit Mommy , and she just has her shit together. Rarely had cheat meals/days….and I’m over here eating M&M’s for dinner.

I’m in the stage now where I’m obviously pregnant, but I don’t feel like I’m pregnant, nor do I look like I’m pregnant. I realize I should be rejoicing in this stage, but all I do is worry. I worry that something is wrong, constantly. It’s terrible. I 100% wish my mind was not like that, but I honestly can’t help it. I realize I’m not the only person like this, but it’s just so overwhelming.

Tuesday, August 9 is the day that my third pregnancy, my second miscarriage, would have been due. I knew the day was coming and I anticipated it for a week or so. When the day came, I handled it much better than expected. I thought about the baby. I prayed for the baby. And I went about my day. I thought about the baby all day. But, at this point, I just have so many other thoughts preoccupying me that I think I was able to cope better with this one. I still think about all three babies often. Not every day, but often. Some days I know they are in a better place. And some days I struggle with the fact that they are not here on earth with me.
