Over the last week I have asked myself one question multiple times..." why don't I eat this good when I'm not prego??" It is so strange that a baby smaller than a grape can completely change how my body reacts to food...wait the thought of food. The following food items are foods that I can't even think about eating with out having the urge to puke.
-processed food of any kind
-FRIED FOOD! not a good friend!
-anything that is creamy
and a plethora of other things--I love the word "plethora" thank you Three Amigos.
While I have no desire to eat those foods these are the ones I love...at the moment.
While I may absolutely hate having morning sickness...I do find comfort in the nausea. A wise woman, Susan Lazenby--my marvelous mother-- has always said, "It is a good sign that you feel sick, it means your baby is healthy." So each morning after making my trip to the bathroom, I find myself saying a prayer of thanks to Heavenly Father for giving me a healthy pregnancy. And with in the same breath I ask for strength to get though the day with out too much suffering. And oh boy was he was sure merciful today!
I know that our bodies were created after HIS image. He created us perfectly so that we can have the ability to grow babies. It blows my mind that as I sit here typing with horrid grammar and run on sentences, I am growing my child. The plan of salvation is real, and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. I am grateful for my Savior who guides me and gives me strength daily. He will become an even bigger help once this baby is here. :) I am so excited I can't even focus on school work. I'll have to pray a little harder for that.
Life is good. We are blessed!
