So this evening, I’ve decided the only best way to keep track of any sort of pregnancy blog would be through tumblr (really, my only web blog I have). Each week I will try to post a picture and updates about the pregnancy until term.
Morning sickness has been absent through the majority of the pregnancy thus far, and it may be safe to say that it may never hit. I’ve been nauseated here and there, mainly if I haven’t been eating, which brings me to another topic. I’m constantly hungry! Although eating a large meal will set me off into a food coma and not feeling well (tummy ache) I do my best to eat small meals throughout the day. I find myself with more energy and a better attitude when eating healthy foods such as nuts, cheeses, crackers, veggies & fruits. Just like before pregnancy, ha. Diet truly makes a difference. Constipation is another issue I have, even when eating a balanced diet (including fiber, of course). We can blame that damn hormone Progesterone for slowing down the GI tract.
In the beginning of pregnancy I weighed about 130lbs and now I am weighing in at 135lbs on avg give or take. I’m not in my second trimester quite yet, so Im hoping to keep that weight at bay for now.
I’ve always been very health conscious since I’ve graduated high school and through college. I’m always attempting new healthy meal ideas and promote clean eating and decent exercise. Running has been my strength past couple years and I’ve really slowed down since becoming pregnant. Some of this is due to fatigue. I still consciously make aware to get a out a few times a week to do some cardio but tuning into your body is key in making sure you are not straining yourself in any way. Also, getting into a yoga class is next priority on the health list!
If anyone has any feedback; please leave it here. I’m a new mother to be to all of this and finding similar experiences from individuals out there will keep my mind at ease.

What makes someone a good blogger about their feelings and thoughts? Cause sometimes I just don’t know how to jot them down in a reasonable order.
