19 Weeks with Hyperemesis Gravidarum & Third Pregnancy

Baby is the size of a: Mango

Cravings: Bacon & egg muffins & mandarins 

Symptoms: Unfortunately I was diagnosed with hyperemesis so I have severe vomiting on random days mostly every morning, and sometimes from about 4pm onwards.  My husband would probably say I have severe mood swings as well haha!

I’ve been feeling: a little down honestly. Overwhelmed? Busy with two kids, a job, and a household to maintain. I never thought I’d take this pregnancy easily, but I didn’t think it’s be this hard. 

I’m most nervous about: going from 2 kids to 3. Haha! and that’s about it.

I am most looking forward to: my youngest becoming a big sister & her reaction to a baby along with my eldest becoming the “leader” of the babies. (In her own words)

Advice I’ve been given lately: be kind to yourself and do something for you. I think this is very important as mother’s we lose ourselves and who we are.

The hardest thing about being pregnant is: Lack of energy, nausea and not being able to enjoy this pregnancy like I have the last two. 

My favourite part of being pregnant would be: when I found out, and feeling the fluttering begin which makes the pregnancy feel real.

When I think about how much my life will change, I feel: overwhelmed, excited & nervous.

If I could say anything to my baby right now it would be: I do love you, I do care, I do want you and we can’t wait till you are here.
