What a First Trimester!On March 9, 2019 by Kari
Oh my word! I wrote my Spill the Beans post very early in my pregnancy and just waited for the right time to share it. But this first trimester has been the worst I’ve ever experienced and it sent me into hibernation mode from most things. So now that I’ve enter the second trimester and I’m starting to slowly feel a bit better most days I thought it was time to get back to my blog and accomplish my goals I set for the year.
This pregnacy has given us so many ups and downs. It has been insane! I’ve thought I was having a miscarriage several times. I’ve been to the ER and OB offices and struggled to make sure that baby and I are doing well. I continue to struggle with high blood pressure when I’ve always been a textbook case. And there has been times when having another home birth has come into question. But now that I’m beginning my second trimester it seems like some things are slowing down.
My blood pressure seems to be standing at a new normal around 130/ 70 which is still considered safe but we have to continue to monitor it. All the concerns I was having about miscarriage that had me on bedrest for weeks seemed to have passed. And now it seems like its time to start enjoying this last pregnancy of mine.
We are due on my dad’s birthday which is really exciting! I’ve had 2 of my 3 kiddos on their due dates so I’m hoping to keep the trend going. We also plan on keeping the sex of the baby a surprise! I figured why not end this pregnancy journey with a big surprise.
So now that everything is out in the open I will be sharing how things are going. Trust me this is going to be a time full of adventure just like each one of my pregnancies!
