We went for an extra check up today with my OB. We also found out the sex of our little one!!!! I am not sharing it quite yet, but will share the news soon. It was so good to see bub on the screen again. They have proper arms and legs now and were wriggling away. I felt a sense of peace seeing bub on the screen. It is funny when you know they are growing away each day but can’t see them. I won’t have another scan now until thirteen weeks. I trust that our baby is thriving. I am feeling more energy and can get through the day without a nap. I am nourishing my body better this week as I have a new cold press juicer. I have been juicing celery in the morning and while it doesn’t taste that great I know I am getting my extra greens in. My family laughed at me on the weekend when I told them about how good celery juice is. I told them how Miranda Kerr has it every morning and then the laughter just erupted. This wasn’t actually what got me on to it though. It was through reading Medical Medium Anthony Williams book ‘Life Changing Foods’ and listening to several of his podcasts. Since having the shingles earlier in the year I wanted to find what could have caused the flare up. Part of it could have been the emotional stress and grief I was still dealing with. I also believe I wasn’t eating the right foods. I was scared of eating too much fruit as it is high in sugar but according to Anthony the scare tactics around fruit are just ridiculous. Certain fruits and vegetables can reduce inflammation and boost our immune systems. I am now eating more berries, oranges, apples and drinking celery juice.
Hamish I love you so much
