Yesterday marked one year of being together and we also announced my pregnancy to everyone who hadn't known already. I was really nervous because I had no idea on how to do it. I really wanted to do it subtly, because I'm really not into posting a lot of my personal life on Facebook for everyone to see unless it has to do with my music or great achievements in my life. So I decided to go with a blog post. So for those who are genuinely interested in my life and my journey through pregnancy can look here to find all of the details and what's happening with me.
I found out that I was pregnant at 4-5 weeks after taking two pregnancy tests, and it was a complete shock to me. I always hear stories of girls crying in disbelief when they first find out, but for me I just stood there in shock with no emotion. I wasn't sure what was going on, it felt like a dream lol. I was happy after the shock subsided. It does change your whole outlook on life, and it's honestly a blessing. I made some serious lifestyle changes such as cutting out caffeine completely, quitting my 'occasional' smoking and of course realizing that alcohol can no longer be apart of my life even after the baby is born.
Of course when there's something going on with my body I feel every symptom imaginable. Morning sickness was horrible, though I never actually thrown up . . . except for one time when eating a banana on an empty stomach. Apparently it was too much starch for my tummy to handle, though it could have been worse. In the very beginning I was suffering from indigestion which was just a constant burning in my stomach regardless of how much water I drank. That went away after a few weeks . . . Around 12 weeks I finally had relief from morning sickness and was able to eat things I could not even stand on smelling. Gravol, Diclectin, and ginger-mint tea were my best friends. Another symptom of pregnancy in the first trimester is tiredness. And believe me, it was no joke. Here was my schedule . . . waking up at 7am and by 12pm I would desperately need a nap. I'd wake up at 4pm and be in bed by 8pm until the next morning. And this lasted the whole first trimester. Finally, complete relief by my second trimester at 14 weeks. My schedule was back to normal, and I was able to bare the smell of my grandma's morning coffee.
I am now 16 weeks and 6 days (4 months). I had my first ultrasound at 10-11 weeks. I was so nervous, just hoping and praying that God had only given me one little blessing. I didn't want to be given more than I knew I could handle. And there it was, the cutest being measuring at 11 weeks comfortable in his/her mommy's tummy. I immediately started crying when I saw the live ultrasound. My little baby was moving around and waving its little arms in there and I couldn't believe it. I cried and it was one of the most happiest moments in my life.
