It ain't easy being queasy (6-week pregnancy update)

We've passed the six-week mark!  

Symptoms: Feeeeeeed meeeeee!  My appetite has quadrupled, ha!  Will only laughs and shakes his head when he finds me in the kitchen at 10:30 a.m. busy grabbing lunch...  Still keeping it healthy, though - trying to eat smaller, healthy meals more frequently in an attempt to try and manage the nausea.  Eish, only a pregnant chick knows the feeling!    

Baby: Our next doctor's appointment will only be at 8 weeks, so in the meantime we're religiously popping our folic acid.

Running:  Not gonna lie: Last week's runs were hard.  The running part in itself is actually going very well, though: No aches or pains or discomfort - for which I'm very thankful.  The hard part for me is getting my morning sick self out the door in the first place!  But I always feel better when I get back from a run, so I'm going to try and keep at it.  Here's our runs for the past week:

  • Tuesday: 5.0 km (solo run with Baby Junior);
  • Thursday: 4.35 km (solo run with Baby Junior); and
  • Sunday: 5.03 km (solo run with Baby Junior).

Weight Gain: Slow and steady.
  •   Last week: 100 g;
  •   Total: 300 g.

Food aversions/cravings:  Still none.  Although beetroot is starting to sound like a rather appealing option...

Bump pic Nothing to report yet.  :)  Instead I'll show you a picture of Will and Baby Girl at the funfair this past weekend - we had a blast [Baby Girl wasn't a big fan of the horses - the little cars were more her thing]!

Hope you have a wonderful week!  Wednesday is a public holiday here in S.A.! *Happy Dance*


  1. Morning sickness and running are tricky! I hope yours clears up soon. Mine was only bad until about 10-12 weeks.
    I have never tried beetroot, except pickled! I bet it would be good crisp.

    Nice running!!

    Lovely pic on the carousel. Little lady looks a bit nervous :)

  2. I've never been pregnant so I can't relate much to what you're going through, but I just wanted to say that I think it's awesome that you're keeping up your healthy eating and running (when possible) during your pregnancy! I think a lot of people, myself probably included, would use being pregnant and the inevitable weight gain as an excuse to eat whatever they wanted whenever they want.

    Good luck! :)

  3. Remembering when I brought my children to the carousel long time ago, beautiful photo!
    yes, keep on running but take it easy.
    Have a good week end.

  4. I remember the morning sickness/eating quandry so well! Baby girl's expression on that horse is priceless!


I love hearing from you!
