My daily pregnancy worry.
Wednesday, August 19, 2009      5 comments

I have seriously got to stop worrying. It’s taking over my brain. I have a tendency to over worry. It comes from my grandmother. I try not to let it take over my life but during this pregnancy, it’s extra hard. There are so many things that ... Read more

This week is devoted to getting back on track. While I am obviously not dieting, I know I will have a better pregnancy, labor and delivery if I eat healthy and keep up the workouts. Last week was a wreck. My allergies attacked and life withou... Read more
Dealing with pregnancy weight gain after months of trying to lose
Wednesday, August 05, 2009      2 comments

I stepped on the scale this morning and saw a number I haven’t seen in 3 years. 209.5. It’s only .5 less than last weeks weigh in, but because it’s not in the 210s, it feels like a bigger milestone. One more pound and I lost 20. A co-worker to... Read more

The queasiness has subsided a bit, though I still get some pretty vicious waves, especially after having too much dairy and occasionally after breakfast. It’s worse though if I don’t eat, so I find the best strategy is eating a little bit every... Read more

Ugh. I am trying my best to be as stress free and calm as possible during this pregnancy. Unfortunately life and my job are making it impossible. ARHHHH! I guess the one perk about being stressed during the first trimester is that I can’t emo... Read more

Remember when I was all “Hey, Morning Sickness is a good sign and I won’t mind if I get it!” ?. I was an idiot. It hit me this week and it hit hard. It’s not really morning sickness either. It’s “morning, noon, night especially after I eat, ... Read more

The first ultrasound and appointment went really well, though I was even more set on going to the midwife clinic after the visit. It did not start off on the right foot. When I arrived, I was told the appointment was actually for tomorrow. I ... Read more

I am excited and nervous about my first Ultrasound today. I hope they can give me a better idea about how far along I am. If going by LMP, I’m 7w4d, but I think I am closer to 6-6 ½ weeks. I am sure my cycle was longer than the average 28 day... Read more
Yay Yoga!
Thursday, July 16, 2009      0 comments

I am super ridiculously glad I went to yoga last night. Originally I didn’t want to go as I was exhausted and scared I would fall asleep mid child’s pose. However, a friend convinced me to go. Normally it’s a typical “power yoga” class filled ... Read more

I need to ban myself from research sometimes...
Wednesday, July 08, 2009      1 comments

I don’t even know why I let myself get on the internet. I research one thing, which leads to another and then another until I finally freak out thinking I am going to miscarry, have a stillborn, have an eptopic pregnancy or some other potential... Read more

So, it’s official. I am pregnant. 5 ½ weeks to be exact. I’m terrified and excited, but mostly terrified. 5 ½ weeks is SOOOO early. I am trying to think positive and fighting off the list of things that can go wrong. I think being relaxed an... Read more
