Hey y’all hey! It has been a while so I thought I would update you all on what’s been going on.
It’s been hard keeping this secret and not being as consistent as I wanted to be when this year started. So as y’all can see by the title yes, it’s true…I’m expecting! I’m at the half way mark now and it feels good to finally feel like myself. I found out I was pregnant on Valentine’s Day…yes love day of all days I found out I was carrying my angel.
First Trimester: The first trimester has been a whirlwind. I was fighting some extreme fatigue. I literally had no energy. It felt like I was a walking zombie. I would sleep everywhere (work, on the train, standing up) and it wasn’t fun. Not only was I tired but the nausea was tough as well. Oh, and let’s not forget the soreness that I felt in my breast every day, which is still an ongoing battle. So far, I’ve gained 11lbs. I’m hoping (fingers crossed) to gain 25 to 30lbs in total.
Let’s get personal…I bleed my entire first trimester. I was so scared and full of emotions for the first 13 weeks. Going to the doctor every week then every two weeks was very taxing on my body. But finally, the doctors got to the bottom of the bleeding and unfortunately, I was pregnant with twins but sadly I miscarried one embryo. I can’t even describe the emotions I felt knowing I lost one but blessed to still carry this one.
I’m grateful and extremely blessed to be carrying my angel and mommy can’t wait to meet you!
Second Trimester: Now that I’m in my second trimester, I have way more energy. My eating habit hasn’t really changed that much except for the fact that I crave pizza all the time. I can have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. But I only allow myself to indulge once a week.
I’m so excited to be carrying my first child! And I’m hoping for a healthy pregnancy and delivering a healthy baby in October.
