Determined to Have a Healthy Pregnancy

I have so exciting news to share with all of you. I'm currently 19 weeks pregnant with our third baby girl!! We are so thankful for the blessings that the Lord continues to pour out on our family. Matilda Kate will be here sometime around the end of October and we can't wait for her to make her to make her big debut into this world.

It's a girl!! Matilda Kate.

I've been trying to not overdo it and simply let my pregnancy cravings control me. I did a good job my first trimester, because there were a lot of things that I couldn't eat like sweets, peanut butter, chicken, and more. However, as I've entered my 2nd trimester, I have been craving salty food like Sour Cream & Onion chips and sweet food like CHOCOLATE.

At first, as I have started to gain weight, I simply gave up on trying to be healthy. I got discouraged and just let myself eat whatever sounded good. On top of that, it's been raining, so I haven't exercised in weeks!!

Gaining weight is a part of being pregnant, however this past week the Lord has really given me a new determination to be healthy throughout the rest of my pregnancy. I have realized that it is possible for me to have a healthy pregnancy if I make a few small changes.  I started walking, which has been amazing!! I'm working on drinking a lot of water and being mindful of what kinds of food I choose to eat. I'm not being strict about what I eat, but just trying to make as many good choices as I can throughout the day.

Hello and congrats on baby #3! I stumbled upon your blog as I too am pregnant with my third and a lifetime WW member. Im only 12 weeks along now but know that this will be my hardest pregnancy with regards to healthy eating and weight gain. I've tasted the joy of reaching my goal weight and don't want to lose sight of how good it felt! Everything you've shared resonates with me - so thank you for sharing!! Wishing you all the best in this pregnancy!

Congrats to you all! We had three girls and then had a boy with our fourth pregnancy. (TOTALLY different world!!! Lol) We had a blond and a brunette with our first two. Your pictures made me smile. My first 2 are now 12 and 11! Baby boy is 6. Enjoy your girlies! They will grow up and get hormones way too soon. We just got to that stage and WOW. Lol
