Where do I begin? The fact that I am carrying, growing, and nurturing a tiny human inside me blows my mind. My body was made to create a life, my body was made to give birth, and my body was made to feed my littles. Pregnancy is such an incredible blessing, I couldn’t thank God enough for this amazing gift. When I say all these rewarding aspects of pregnancy are beautiful in every way that does not mean there aren’t some unpleasant moments that come along with it. For instance; some women get sick and can’t eat anything without running to the bathroom a few moments after. As for me, I got what some may call “lucky” because I have a ravenous hunger to eat ALL the time. Yes, that sounds fun right? My partner got an eating buddy, yay! But in reality I have no in-between, I am either starving or so full it hurts. Its a day to day struggle but I’ve learned to eat smaller portions to avoid being uncomfortable which leads me to my next topic; WEIGHT GAIN. Every woman, big or small, will gain weight during their pregnancy. Whether it be 10 pounds to 60 pounds, it happens. With my first pregnancy I gained 50+lbs (on top of being a plus size Mama) and was very unhappy with myself after I delivered my beautiful little girl. It took forever to get that control that I was missing, back. Once I finally got it I became preggo again! I am happy to say that with this pregnancy I have managed to keep my gain under control and I am very pleased with how I am carrying. Next, lets discuss all things that have to do with your energy. Everyday I find myself completely winded from doing simple house chores. Its come to the point where the dishwasher has become my bestie, making the beds is very unnecessary since we crawl back into them anyways, and laundry takes 5 -7 business days to get back into the drawers. Growing a human takes it all from you, so sorry if my house isn’t as clean as it once was. I promise that its only temporary and things will get back into routine as soon as I’m up to it! I just want to take the time to let all the women in the world know, YOU ARE AMAZING.
