It's About Time

So. I suppose I start informing you guys about what's going on in my life huh? Well, first I'd like to apologize for being on hiatus for so long. How long has it been? Like 2 months? I don't know but to all my loyal readers I apologize.

Anyways. Around the last time I posted I was feeling blah and tired. I had no energy to go to the gym and when I did I could barely make it through a workout. My eating was getting a little off balance as well. I had no desire to eat anything. I felt bloated and gross and absolutely nothing, healthy or unhealthy, seemed appealing. I ended up gaining about 2 pounds back and I knew that I had to get back on track but I was feeling so shitty I really didn't care about going to the gym or eating healthy.

Christmas was great, very busy but absolutely wonderful. I ate okay, probably more than I should have but I didn't overstuff myself. The day after Christmas I was putting some Christmas presents together and rearranging my room. My friend Tyler, Erin, my brother and I were going to go to the mall so I decided after an hour of procrastinating that I should probably start getting ready. I headed to the bathroom, got my makeup out and suddenly felt sick. I threw up everything I had eaten that morning. (Luckily it wasn't much) That night I decided to take a pregnancy test and found out that I was 7 weeks pregnant!

Honestly, I was speechless. I still kind of am. My boyfriend and I have been together for 3 years but a pregnancy was the furthest thing from our minds. Luckily he is very excited and very supportive. I am now finishing up my 10th week and I had my first doctor's appointment last Tuesday. Everything went well, I've actually lost about 3 pounds since I last weighed myself which surprised me considering the way I've been eating. They tried to hear the heartbeat but they were unable to. My doctor didn't seem too concerned as she said most people don't hear it at 10 weeks but they try anyways. We have another appointment this coming up Tuesday to try again. If they still can't hear it they will schedule an ultrasound.

This pregnancy has basically kicked the shit out of me. I'm nauseous 24/7, I throw up every morning and come 6 o'clock I'm ready for bed. I've been eating horribly as you can imagine but I'm trying to slowly reel it in. I also have not been working out at all, basically because I'm so tired I have no energy to do anything.

I was hesitant to tell you all the big news which is why I waited so long. Basically I wanted to wait until I was out of the first trimester before I said anything just incase I had a miscarriage but I decided that I would rather have a support system than not if something like that were to happen. Positive thoughts :-)

Aaaand just so you all know I have been keeping up with you guys and I'm sorry I haven't been commenting!! Can I use being exhausted as an excuse again?! Please? Anyways you guys are doing wonderfully, all of you! Keep up the great work :-)
