I’ve gotten a few emails about where I have disappeared too and why I am not posting. I am soooo sorry. I have been utterly consumed with work and things going on, and basically anytime I am not working, I am laying down! WHY? BECAUSE I AM PREGNANT!!!!
Crazy, crazy, crazy! It comes as a complete surprise, but also an absolute blessing. With my nearly-fatal ectopic pregnancy, I was told it may be challenging for me to conceive…but apparently not! Mike and I were NOT planning at all.
We thought since we JUST got married, we’d wait a few years and get the business really rocking, but now we’ll also be rockin a baby! We can do it though, I know we will make it work.
Pretty funny cause we were in LA, working, having fun, living the California life until 1 day, I knew something wasn’t normal. I had been cramping for a few weeks already and I was super late on my period, as soon as we got back to Canada I bought 2 pregnancy tests….
It was kinda funny cause I pee’d on it, and I didn’t know how it worked, so mike came in and grabbed it and said, “omg, you’re pregnant”. “WHAT????”
HUGE surprise, but a very happy one. We are just floored. Since I knew I had potential of a high risk pregnancy, the next day I went to the hospital to make sure it was in the right place. (I remembered the doctors saying years ago, that because of my surgery, I need to be closely monitored if I get preggers again)
This is what we got to see… (I put a little bee beside it, so you could see the outline of the yolk sac (it’s the faint white thing)
It was still just a yolk sac, but it was in the right place! I was super excited about that. It looks like I was on my way to a successful pregnancy.
HOWEVER… I have had atrocious morning sickness, or shall I say ALL DAY sickness. I have never felt so gross day after day. AND SO tired- day in and day out. One day I went to bed at 6pm and didn’t wake up until the next day (see- that’s why I haven’t been blogging) AHH. I got some diclectin from my doctor. It is a mix of Unisom (yes the sleeping pill) and Vitamin B6. So really I could have saved a bunch of money and just bought the 2 medicines and combined them, but they gave this combo a fancy name and charged me $50 for 30 pills. I guess it helped a bit, but then you just get tired. Catch 22
Also, the thought, vision, and smell of green salads have made me ill
So I have been taking a slew of vitamins to hopefully give the baby some of the nutrients I haven’t been supplying it with through food.
Really frustrating though. I know this is the most important time to eat well and I can’t stomach greens… They say it will pass. I am basically out of my 1st trimester and the sickness has slowly subsided a bit, as well as the tiredness. I am starting to feel better. I can see the light, haha!
I CAN however drink these Green Goodness shakes. It consists of Lemon, Kale, Apples, Banana and ginger. THESE have been awesome. I think because we put a lot of lemon in them, I can’t taste the green and they have been really refreshing.
I had my 12 week ultrasound yesterday and the baby is doing amazing! It was bouncing like crazy and I couldn’t stop laughing and smiling.
Mike and I are already fighting about who it looks more like, haha.
And like proud parents, we have these pictures taped to the fridge. I am really excited to go through this. Yes, I can deal without the sickness and tiredness, but I know it’s all leading up to something amazing- I have a human growing inside me! It’s nuts. Mike and I made this video to share with some extended family and friends the good news!
Have a look…
I seriously tried to sing, but I couldn’t stop crying, haha. Oh golly….
I will come back as soon as I can. Lots more to talk about. I hope all is well in your world! Love, love love and lots of light!!!!!
