No, I haven't fallen off the wagon...

Friday, April 02, 2010

Well, It has been a long time since I've posted on the message boards or written a blog entry. Today I'm ready to tell you why:
I'm pregnant again - and this time I've made it successfully past the end of the first trimester!

In January I dedicated myself to Boot Camp. I made fantastic progress, but at the end of the month I was really starting to get tired out. I soon figured out that I was pregnant and got in touch with my doctor at the fertility clinic. I was given a prescription for daily progesterone supplements until I reached the 10 week mark. My hormone levels were checked at least once each week. I became quite a regular customer at the blood lab!

When it came time to stop the medication I was nervous as could be, but everything went perfectly. I've had three ultrasounds and baby is looking great! I'm over the moon about it and so is hubby - although I think it took him a while to believe that it is really happening!

I've still been checking in on my Spark friends a few times a week and I plan to continue to do so. During my pregnancy my doctor would like me to aim for a moderate weight gain of about 15 pounds, so I'm still using the nutrition tracker to make sure that I'm getting a good range of nutrients and not going overboard on the sodium. I'm also using the BabyFit site but Spark has better trackers and a much more active community so I plan to stick around here too.

Big hugs to all of you. I hope you're doing well and enjoying these lovely early spring days.

Happy Easter!

    Oh my goodness, I am so incredibly excited for you! Lots of hugs & prayers & wishes for a blissfully uneventful pregnancy. I'll light a candle for you - My Mum started that tradition when I got pregnant for the second time (I lost Peanut, my first), and we have had a lot of luck with it since then for family & friends.

    I'm so happy for you, and I totally understand your keeping this under wraps this time. You must be sooo excited! Enjoy your pregnancy - the babby will be here before you know it and your life will change for good. Get as much sleep as you can now, 'cos you're gonna miss it in a few months' time, lol!

    I hope your pregnancy goes smoothly and you don't have to put up with too much morning sickness, swollen ankles, varicose veins and haemorrhoids.

    Congratulation and enjoy your road to motherhood. Remember get all the sleep you can for the next 24 weeks because after that your sleep will only be a memory of past occurrences. :)
