Well hello there! It’s been a while. You look great!
Oh, this… ya I had a baby, crazy right!
Enough small talk. I know I kinda left you hanging, but not really because I was cheating on you with my podcast, Champion Chat 360. Sorry?! I don’t have to spell check the Podcast. You can listen to the podcast here Champion Chat 360 Itunes. It will give you some more insight if you want on the week to week updates through this past year.
Before I got pregnant I planned on blogging about my pregnancy in hopes to give insights to others. As the weeks went by I started to realize:
1- I had no answers to help others
For someone that likes to have answers it was tough! I know I don’t know everything, but before pregnancy I thought I knew a good amount. I was wrong. Yes, I know what glycolysis is, and how to get the glute to activate in a lunge. But pregnancy was a strange new world to me.
It’s amazing how far we have come in understanding the science of pregnancy, but there are still so many questions. Questions like, why at any moment I hated everyone! 🙂 Yes, I know it’s hormones but WHY? Why do some pregnant women have mood swings like I did, what is the purpose of it. Because of that I didn’t feel like I could give people answers to why things where or where not happening.
I didn’t want to give information to people that wont facts for them. I didn’t want to lead them to worry or become discouraged. Be pregnant is hard enough, we don’t need more to worry about. Which leads me to may next point.
2-It really is different for everyone.
Some ladies have morning sickness. Some turn into raging bitches. Some gain 70lbs. Some “glow” the whole time (think of the movie What to Expect When Expecting).
Sure there are some things that are explained in most pregnancy books, but for most first time preggors it’s full of questions. There are so many things that go into it I didn’t know about. They say your Mother’s pregnancy is a good indicator of what your pregnancy will be. But some of us are having children later in life. My Mother had me at 16. Her body was much different than my 32 year old body. My Mother never worked out. She wasn’t told what to eat or not to eat for the most part. And she didn’t have the health care I was able to have.
What I do know is what happen to me. So I will write about my journey from being pregnant and the road back. Back to where? I’m not sure yet, but I’m bring you along. Promise. 🙂
