I love being pregnant and I have since the day I found out when two pink lines appeared on the pregnancy test. Tears were shed and instant love was felt for the little cells growing inside of me.
I feel so blessed and my heart is full of gratitude that I am one of the lucky ones that can get pregnant and carry a baby because a lot of women can't.
"Being pregnant is a blessing and not a right and I think sometimes this is forgotten.
But as much as I adore the growing little human inside me, the first few weeks were a little tough I'm not going to lie.
I have heard some horror stories, including from friends who were sick the whole 9 months and thank goodness I am not one of them. Or on the other side of the spectrum, the ladies who had nothing and felt great the whole way through. You lucky ducks! I was somewhere in the middle of this spectrum.
So a little back story on me and what I loved and did before I got pregnant...
:: I am an avid reader, I always have multiple books on the go.
:: I exercise 3-4 times per week and meditated afterwards.
:: I did journaling and pulled angel cards.
:: I was good with my eating besides some sneaky chocolate here or there.
:: I adore my business and write blogs and putting up content every single week.
:: And I love drinking herbal tea multiple times a day.
Well this all went out the window once "morning" sickness hit!
