Bonding with Bubs - Week 6

So this will be a new weekly feature :) Because I might as well shove those worries of not staying pregnant in a closet and enjoy it! It will probably grow a lot more from this.

Symptoms: insane hunger ; on the downside exercising makes me sooo tired & icky so I have to not succumb to my cravings; crazy amounts of peeing; waking up in the middle of the night and really bad sleeps; and horrible teenage pimples all over my face and chest!

Cravings: I am really really craving that horrendous new KFC burger (you know the one without the bun!); sugar; fruit

Keep that away from me: chickpea nibbles, plain crackers

Weight: EEEK I'm already heading towards my 'heavy' weight at 75kg *gulp* I hope it was just because I'd scoffed so much food yesterday

Feelings: As I mentioned I'm trying to keep positive, there's no reason I shouldn't and I'll just miss out on everything if I keep thinking it's going to end. I'm walking on eggshells when it comes to 'morning' sickness, I've been a little bit queasy at random times but nothing full on or for very long. I'm finally starting to fall in love with our little Pecan and I'm really rooting for Pecan to keep growing big and strong.

Random: we've decided not to find out the sex of the baby, yay for a delivery surprise! My Mum doesn't believe we'll last but that just makes me more determined ha-ha.


  1. Your only week 6... The morning sickness probably hasnt even properly started!
    But if your lucky... you might not get much or it might not be that bad.
    I dont think the feelings go away. I'm 18 weeks tomorrow and I still worry about things and think something bad is going to happen.
    But you have to try and be as positive as you can. It is hard, I know.
    And remember my tip about keeping snacks around you at all times... Bag, desk at work, the car, and all around the house!

  2. I dont think the worrying stops until you have that healthy baby squirming in your arms.. then a new type of worrying starts!
