|6 months preggers|
This 5th pregnancy was the roughest of them all. I threw up almost every single day I was preggers. The first 7 1/2 months were the worst for sickness. It did get a little better towards the end...just in time to feel really uncomfortable. I had Labryntitis off and on through this pregnancy. Which causes constant dizziness and vertigo. Overall, it was rough. I am older. My body is older. I usually enjoy being pregnant, but can honestly say it felt torturous the majority of the time. That being said here are some of the highlights....
-I craved sushi. Especially the first 4 months.
-The last 4 months I craved Potato logs from Lins Deli.
-yogurt covered raisins
basically anything I didn't have to cook or smell cooking ( SO FAST FOOD)
-We thought for sure this baby was a boy.
We had the name STETSON JAMES picked out.
It took us both 2 weeks to get into "girl mode" after we found out.
-We had the name SCARLETT picked out by month 3. We just told everyone we didn't know.
It is different and we didn't want anyone ruining it for us.
I fell all the time.
-I did the splits in my friends driveway one time when I fell.
-I fell down the stairs like 20 gazillion times.
-I used my cell phone as the TV remote a dozen times.
-Answered the TV remote like it was the phone.
Lets just say my brain was apparently MIA for the last 9 months.
-To have a good birth experience.
I missed out on Kenny's due to a c-section. I missed out on the first 5 hours of Luke's life due to a high fever. I definitely wanted this one to be great!
-A healthy baby, of course!
The last month was incredibly long. I had severe anxiety attacks over nothing.
I am glad it is all over with. I wish I could say it went fast, but it didn't.
The best part of the whole experience, is of course, the baby!
I learned a lot about patience and making myself stay positive. Everything I went through was worth having Scarlett here with us!
She makes us so happy!!
More to come of the birth experience!
