This month has been so crazy. The first half was filled with anxiety, and the second half was filled with nausea. My productivity levels have been low, but I did manage to find a few favorites to share with you.
Over the last year, I have tried a lot of ovulation tests, but the Easy@Home Ovulation Test Kit seems to be the easiest and clearest test of them all. And they are cheaper than any of the ones I bought in the stores. Bonus! This comes with 50 ovulation strips and 20 pregnancy test strips. The only drawback is that the pregnancy test strips are not early testers. So they don’t show up as pregnant until after your period has started. I did have to buy some of those to get the early results.I mentioned this journal in one of my weekly check-in videos, but I really have been impressed with the quality of this Rifle Paper Company Journal. One of the issues I have with a lot of journals is that the pages will stick together or I will skip over a page layout without knowing. But the pages in this journal are not thin, so it’s easy to see right where you need to be. They are a little more expensive – about 15-20 dollars, but the quality is worth it.
Other than that, the only other things that seem to be favorites this month are the few foods that I am willing to eat and keep down. Clementines, peanut butter banana smoothies, oatmeal, and eggs are my basic regiment lately. I have been eating a lot of carbs and fruit, but I know from past experience that this only lasts a little while, about 5-7 more weeks (but who’s counting 😉 ) and then my appetite will be back and I’ll be ready to indulge a little more.
I do have some food aversions, but I think I will save that for this Friday’s vlog!
Do you have any favorites this month? Any advice on morning sickness?
