|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.
