What a surprise! I didn’t even know that I was pregnant until 10 weeks later. My hubby urged me to take a test…just in case. Three tests later and a Dr. confirmation, we were thrilled! From that moment I started eating for three and taking Prenatal vitamins/minerals with Omegas.
The pregnancy was amazing but the delivery was pure torture. No One could prepare you for this. I watched videos and read many books, articles, and websites on this topic but each delivery is unique. Some may have easier deliveries but mine was 5 days long. It had taken 3 months to somewhat recover physically not to mention that depression starting to sink in. I’m still trying to recover today!
When I was pregnant I:
-Slept average of 10+ hours per day
-Ate and drank ton of water/tea from the moment I got up to the moment I went to sleep
-Relaxed as much as possible by doing things I enjoyed
-I was a 6th Grade Teacher in the beg. of pregnancy and was laid off shortly after my pregnancy news. So I stayed off my feet and I never had swollen ankles, only the last days of pregnancy.
-Never was nauseas or had other common symptoms of pregnancy. Only thing different about me was my belly and appetite!
