So up until this point I had been wake boarding, doing hot yoga 4 times a week or more, and just having a fun summer out of school. Week 4, the week I found out I was pregnant, was easy and I felt totally fine.
In week 5 my body started to hate me.
I started to feel nauseous a lot of times, not just in the morning. I got some Preggie Pops for it and started drinking ginger ale. Not only was I nauseous but I was extremely bloated and gassy. This combo caused me to not be able to eat very much. I wouldn't even feel hungry, food was the last thing I wanted. I started taking prenatal vitamins, but they all made me sick. I threw up every day.
Back in March, I had scheduled an appointment to see the OBGYN on June 28. I went in thinking I would just tell them 'oh by the way I'm pregnant' and they'd just adjust- not so. I told them I was pregnant and they said 'well that's a whole different appointment, you'll have to reschedule'. Ah! I really wanted to visit with my doctor for 3 reasons- 1, I had a lot of questions, 2, I just wanted to meet him, and 3, I was going to Mexico in 2 weeks and had LOTS of questions about that. I ended up meeting him, thank goodness, and he is the BEST! I'm so thankful that he's going to be taking this journey with me and Tyler. At that checkup I weighed 138 pounds. He said everything I was experiencing was normal, and eased my mind about traveling to Mexico. I thought 'if this is normal, why do people enjoy being pregnant?!'
