Well well well…. it’s that time. I haven’t blogged in a while because I have been emotionally going through! I received some news months ago that shook me to my core. It shocked me because, it was just so unexpected. I literally had to wrap my mind around this one. Get to it already…. what is it?
I am prego! Yep. Pregnant!
A couple months ago, I went to Chicago and decided to take a pregnancy test before I went. We were going for a wedding and knew we were planning on kicking it WELL! I was also on a two month break from birth control. I was also reading that damn 50 SHADES OF GREY! If you mix all three books of 50 Shades with no birth control you get, “PREGNANT!” (A Greybie!)
What happened was, I removed my IUD because it was giving me headaches, acne & body aches. I said I will give my body a 2 month break on hormones and then get back on a low dosage pill. Well, the week I was supposed to start back on my pill, WHALA! Test positive!
Why was it shocking? It was shocking because it was unexpected. My husband and I recently agreed we were happy with our two even though he wasn’t willing to get snipped! He asked me was I playing a practical joke on him when I told him. I almost slapped him! In addition to the fact that we HAVE NOTHING FOR A BABY! We gave away or sold everything we had!
We found out pretty early and we didn’t tell anyone until I was 9 weeks. Now I have rounded out my first trimester and starting my 13th week and I feel better. I now have a peace about it and understand it’s just Gods plan for my life. My children are EXCITED! What’s funny is before we told them they started asking for another little brother named Tony (Power Ranger).
So what now?
Well before I found out I was expecting, I did Zumba consistently. Since I got the news, Zumba was hard on me at first. So I started walking everyday. I get up at 5:30ish and walk for about 45 minutes before my household wakes up. I tried Zumba last week, and I was glad to say I could keep up.
With my first two children I gained 70 pounds rounding out my birth delivery weight at 205 and 210!! I refuse to get that big with this one. My goal is the 25-35 pounds you are supposed to gain with your child, hence the morning workouts. I actually just want to be all belly with this baby.
I invite you to join me if you are pregnant and need a motivation partner. I also invite you to keep an eye on me as I progress into this 3rd (and final) pregnancy with motivation, tips, and more as I try to keep my weight down and my fashion cute.
I will be doing a new segment every Monday called Maternity Monday, with updates, give-a-ways and product reviews.
