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 :-)


  1. Do not apologize!! You know.... sometimes this thing called "life" gets in the way. I have missed you though, and I am glad that you are back.

    Unexpected or not.. this pregnancy happened to you for a reason. I wish you the best of luck with it and I am beyond happy that your boyfriend is supporting you. I'm so sorry that its been a rough few months for you. I could definitely see how the pregnancy could throw a lot of things off for you. But, everything happens for a reason, you know?

    Glad to have you back. I am so happy for you and your boyfriend. I'm always here for support. =)

  2. I was going to call you and see what was up but I thought maybe it was something you wouldn't want to share so I just kept waiting for you to post.

    Congrats. Sometimes life happens. Don't be afraid to talk to us. We'll alway be here.

  3. omg!!!!! congratulations!!!! you are going to be an amazing mommy :)

  4. Congratulations!
    I know this probably the last thing you want to hear, as you're tired all of the time, but a little walk might actually give you a little energy to help to last until at least 6:30 pm. ;)

    Can't wait to read about your progress and the new addition to your family!

  5. You certainly don't have to apologise for anything.

    CONGRATLATIONS and GOOD LUCK with everything you have to go through in the coming months.

    :-) :-).

  9. Hey girl, just checking in on you...hope youre doing well!

  10. I just found your blog and am looking forward to reading older posts. Congrats on the pregnancy! I've heard that ginger can help with nausea.

    I do have a question for you....Since you became pregnant, how do you deal with weight gain? Do you feel discouraged?

    I lost 110 pounds and and about 15 pounds from my goal weight. I know I want to get pregnant some day but I worry about the weight gain.
