I had a miscarriage last year with my first pregnancy - losing my baby is the lowest I've been in my life 💔 I'm currently 6 weeks pregnant, 2nd time, so it's too early to give too many real-life pregnancy stories! But I'm finding the morning sickness already really difficult - weirdly I'd consider it a high of pregnancy though as I'm hoping it means everything is progressing well and my hormones are as they should be! 💖

I’ve been sick my whole pregnancy. I was a very healthy woman before pregnancy even being plus size. In fact i was in incredible health, even with family history of health issues. I went from a perfectly healthy person to having gestational diabetes and it has really broken me down. It’s been really hard. The diets, the constant checking blood sugar, the insulin. It’s been so rough finding a balance. I’ve have back pain this entire time, the breast pain is worse than one would expect. Then with covid I haven’t been able to do a lot of things i wanted to. No gender reveal, no baby shower, there wont be a “meet the baby” and so much more. Im in the last weeks of my last trimester and it’s been so rough.

So I had two miscarriages so when I found out I was pregnant I was mad and sad. Because when I found I was pregnant was the same time that I was pregnant with my two miscarriage so I thought great other. That was my low in my point but in December when I heard her first heartbeat I was happy and I started to get so excited. I loved every moment of my pregnancy. I never had all those bad parts of pregnancy like morning sickness or pains or Braxton kick. I had none of that. The only time I felt uncomfortable was my last two weeks of being pregnant. But seeing her in my arms pain all that off

I thought I’d be one of those pregnant women who go to the gym and are doing kettle bell swings and barbell squats at 40 weeks pregnant. Turns out my strength and energy rapidly declined from 28 weeks and I sometimes even struggle to grate cheese 😅 I somehow feel hot and cold at the same time and my body can’t regulate temperate very well at all. My nausea returns for a few days every few weeks (just the morning and just the first 12 weeks is the biggest lie!!) And I feel the need to clean and tidy everything but my body won’t allow it. Back pain, belly pain, heart burn, bleeding gums, dypnea, lack of appetite and insomnia are all fun too 😂 All worth it for the little (sometimes big) kicks though ❤️
