It is a firm decision, one that shouldn't be made on a whim. We should spend time and thought of what we really need to change in our lives, what things we want to improve upon. If we are truly making a resolution, a firm decision, then we must try our absolute best to keep them.
Resolution (n): a firm decision to do or not to do something.
Do/did you make resolutions for the new year? I made a few.
*Spend more time daily in prayer/bible study and encouraging others.
*Pay off our last credit card.
*Save for baby items, hospital bills, new(to us) vehicle, and Ryan's schooling.(He's going back to get his masters! :) )
*Gain 20-25lbs :) And then loose it again.
*Continue clean eating and exercise when possible.
*Get everything ready for baby!!!
Sunday marked 13 weeks for me and the end of the 1st trimester! It's hard to believe that this pregnancy is 1/3 of the way over! These first few months can be summed up in a few words - fatigue and "morning" sickness. The morning sickness was by far the worst. I actually lost 15lbs because of it.
But after loosing 2 babies, I am so thankful for these symptoms! I am so thankful everyday when that queasiness hits. Days that don't contain any nausea, like this past Tuesday, make me worry. In fact I was so worried that I prayed to have some morning sickness. Don't do that unless you're really prepared for it because God answered yes to those prayers Wednesday. :)
A few things that we've bought this trimester:
|Eddie Bauer Trailmaker Travel System - Clearbrook|
We got this stroller and car seat on clearance for 50% the price in store! Regular $219 and we only paid $109. :)
|The Pregnancy Companion: A Faith Filled Guide for Your Journey to Motherhood|
We actually bought this during a previous pregnancy but I love this book! I think it's so much better than the other pregnancy books I have read. I love that it's written with a focus on faith.
