2nd Trimester

Pregnancy Not Going The Way You Planned

I'm a very active girl. Workout at least three times a week. But since I got pregnant it's been ritheione reason or another where I can't workout. At first a small bleed and j was on pelvic rest. I'm cleared now. Then a cold. Then morning sickness. Then finsfin start feeling better at the end of the first trimester beginning of the second and it's another cold with sore throat making me throw up and bringing back my migraines. Hard to not be sad about being thrown in the couch for most of my days.
Anyone else or am I being emotional.

    Pregnancy has it's own plan, and you (unfortunately) need to just deal with it.  You do what you can, and just know that what you are doing - creating a human - is your body's main job right now.  If you can get extra workouts in, great.  

    Please don't go into delivery with a plan.  Be flexible and know that anything can happen, you have say but yet can not control what happens during birth.  As a nurse told me, birth plans rarely gives parents expect.

  • Pregnancy and childbirth rarely go as expected. My sister in law thought pregnancy would be a breeze since it's been easy for me. Unfortunately she has hyperemesis graviderum (extreme morning sickness) and at 16 weeks even with medication,  it's not getting better😔 I had my heart set on all natural births. My first was a vacuum delivery after 5.5 hours of unmedicated pushing. My second was an emergency c-section after 3.5 hours of pushing. I'm not trying to scare you, just saying it might be helpful to educate yourself and have realistic expectations.  I won't even mention how different parenting has been from what I expected lol! Having a baby has a way of waking us up to reality! It's the best, most rewarding thing I've experienced, yet the hardest and most challenging as well!

  • And don't worry about not getting to workout. Maybe even short walks can help. I didn't start exercising with this third pregnancy,  until well into my second trimester. Sometimes relaxing and eating healthy are just as important.  Take care of yourself, but don't stress out about it! You can always get back into your active lifestyle after your baby is born.
