Sorry I've been MIA, I've just recently discovered that I'm pregnant and I've been hibernating. This is my first pregnancy and my first child. I'm super excited & nervous.
Having a child is one of the scariest things that has ever happened in my life.
Not scary in a life threatening way (at least not in this era & part of the world).
I mean I'm scared as in my entire life is going to change.... FOREVER.
The beautiful part of this entire situation is that for the first time in my life
I feel like a woman.
This is one of the most amazing experiences in my life.
It's tough being pregnant though because you experience a lot of changes in your body.
I didn't notice that I was pregnant until my second month.
The signs were my period being 16+ days late.
My boobs were getting huge.
I felt as though I was in progress of getting food poisoning.
How it Started:
I had an appointment with my dermatologist when we joked around about my body.
Me: Ahahaha! Just imagine all this happening because I'm pregnant!
Finally she looked at me seriously & suggested that I go to my GYN.
As soon as she had finished I ran to my GYN.
That's when I found out I was pregnant.
I was in awe.
I didn't believe my GYN.
The whole thing seemed unreal.
I had asked her if she was joking if I was being pranked or something.
She turned from her computer asked to see my hand for a second & hit me in the head with my on hand. She was a bit frustrated but understanding.
"It's for real. You're really pregnant. This little thing on the monitor that's a baby growing."
I just sat in the room.... I could. not. believe it.
How it Feels:
I do have morning sickness but not to the point where I'm vomiting.
Sometimes I feel like vomiting but I never do.
Honestly, I never thought I'd be grateful for my horrible dysmenorrhea.
If you have dysmenorrhea, a type of disease with your period & you vomit everything then this is a ball in the park for you in terms of choosing what foods to eat. Having dsymenorrhea has taught me which foods to eat & which to avoid because if you don't avoid it you'll end up gagging.
It will be tough sharing my tips & tricks for not vomiting during morning sickness & dysmenorrhea because some dishes are traditional Yugoslavian meals and snacks and mostly foreign fruits and veggies from Asia as well as familiar European fruits & veggies. The other thing is that everyone's body is different and so are our taste buds so whatever I may like may not necessarily be your fave.
However almost all of the foods I eat are very healthy and nutritious.
I'm so excited to be back! I can not wait to share everything with ya'll!
