Coffee Yay or Nay

So I was 13 weeks on Sunday, and so far I've had crazy up and downs with my morning sickness! I've been sick most of the time, then have a few great days where my medication is helping with the nausea and then I have a couple bad days again. I'm very tired of the daily guessing game!

So far I have barely been able to eat healthy, because in the beginning all I could keep down were tortilla chips and sprite. Lately if I start my day out with a Bagel and cream cheese from our health food store I'm doing really good. Its usually all I eat until dinner besides tortilla chips, even on my good days. I would normally feel bad about eating junk like that, but since I'm not eating much, at least its something. Plus I still haven't gained and have still lost a pound since the end of my 90 days of Power 90.

The saddest thing is I never know how I'm going to react to having a coffee. I love coffee and actually worked as a barista for years before I became pregnant with my daughter and just love having my one or two cups a day. I was totally able to have my cup of coffee a day when I was pregnant with Olivia, but most of the time this baby doesn't agree with it. Even on the days I feel great, like today, I buy a coffee with my bagel and then realize its just making me sick, so I have to nurse it for hours! Some days I'm lucky and can drink it like a normal human being! I love those days!

Here's a pic of the beginning of my baby bump at 13 weeks. If you compare it to my after pic from Power 90 you can totally tell I'm showing already, especially knowing I haven't gained weight yet.

I have been getting out and walking with Olivia and the little girl I babysit on the days I feel better, so I've been trying to be more active. Its nice knowing that I only babysit for about a month or up to a month and a half more then I'm done. I really like it when its just my daughter and me, especially since we won't have a double stroller till next month.

Other than that not too much is going on in my life. I'm doing better at keeping up with the housework now that I'm feeling better, and I'm going to attempt to make out a meal plan for the week and stick to it so we can budget better. At least on the days my husband isn't cooking dinner.

My baby is one year old today!

I haven't been on here in a long time and I'm sorry. I spent the last 6 weeks being miserable from morning sickness (getting sick all day long literally). I'm 12 weeks and 2 days pregnant now! So I haven't felt like blogging or working out for that matter. I had been given some medication for nausea that wasn't working at all, but all of a sudden started working last week, so I'm feeling normal again.

My daughter Olivia is one year old today! I am amazed how fast this last year has gone by! We had her birthday party on Sunday and can I just say that my house hasn't been this clean since Thanksgiving and Christmas!!! I deep cleaned almost everything for the party and on top of that made the cake and decorated it myself, which took a lot of time! I'm so glad I did cause it turned out perfect. Now I just have to keep up on the house work and keep my house looking nice.

I am very happy to say that I haven't gained any weight yet this pregnancy. I had gained about 4 lbs then lost 5 so I'm a pound lighter! I haven't worked out at all other than walking so far, so my goal is to be a little more active now that I'm feeling better! My husband fixed the elliptical machine so I can use that and also do some of my workout dvds. I'm hoping that 6 weeks after I've had this baby I'll either be a little lighter like I was with my daughter or be the same weight as I was when I became pregnant.

Today is going to be a fairly uneventful day. I'm the little 20 month old girl  today so I will probably take her and Olivia outside pretty soon to enjoy the sunshine and start cleaning up my yard since the snow is finally almost gone. I'm only watching one little girl now a few days a week most weeks until her mom has their next baby sometime in the next couple months and then I'll just be a stay at home mom. I'm really looking forward to it, but I'm not looking forward to being broke all the time. We'll have to figure out a budget so we can survive the high fuel bills next winter.

So for the next 6 months my blog is going to focus mainly on my pregnancy and being home with my daughter and trying to be active so I can start my weight loss where I left off after I have baby #2. Thanks everyone for following my blog!

Here are some pics that I took of Olivia's birthday party!
