Well, since I stopped actively losing weight, I’ve had some trouble remembering to blog. I suppose I could switch this blog to a “healthy pregnancy” blog, but its been hard for me to switch gears. I’ve been eating pretty healthy for the last few months, but it hasn’t been a FULL healthy diet, its been more of an “eat only things that will fill you and try not to eat anything else” diet… which is totally NOT full of the variety of vitamins, etc that a pregnant woman needs. I think the hardest thing for me to give up is the soda! I’d switched to diet soda for my diet, but I can’t have aspartame throughout my pregnancy, so now I’m struggling with figuring out healthier options that are still satisfying. Its rough.
In other news, I’m feeling much less freaked out. I’ve been really stressing about what we’re going to do for money on my pregnancy leave and how I’m going to handle saving and all that stuff, but this week when I finally got to tell my mom about it, many of my worries went away. I’d been dying to tell her for at least two weeks, and when I finally did, I talked (and CRIED) a TON. Its such a relief to know that she is totally supportive and excited. I was so worried that she wouldn’t be excited and she’d be more judgey. I don’t know why I thought that, because she never judges me, but I was assuming the worst. She really is the greatest person in my life, so I’m happy to talk to her at every chance I get.
I’m still not really feeling any pregnancy symptoms (other than sore boobs). No morning sickness, NOTHING. I thought I was emotional for a while because every time I talked about being pregnant, I started crying, but that ended after I talked to my mom. I think it was the stress of needing to talk to her about it that was upsetting me so much. This relief has really taken over my whole view of the pregnancy and I’m much less worried. So, thats what’s up!
