Welp, it’s out on Facebook so it’s public now.
Yep, it’s baby time in the Bahhar house!
I’m excited, can’t wait, blah blah. Honestly, I’m not thrilled with myself that I’m not in the healthiest place right now. It’s been seven years since I had my son, so really, I’ve had more than enough time to get my body ready. Over the years I’ve thought off and on about having more children, and I always thought that if the time came, I’d be in top shape.
I’m in almost the exact same place I was when I had Kalil. I mean, almost down to size and pound. With Kalil, it was a small struggle to conceive. Now I’m seven years older and at an “advance maternal age,” so when we decided to try again in February, I gave it until December and shop’s closed. I honestly did not think it was in the cards. Of course, five months and one positive test later, and here we are.
Ironically, while we were trying, I decided that since I wasn’t going to conceive, I may as well get myself healthier. So I was eating better and exercising more. Then came the sickness. Not even morning sickness. All damn day sickness. So the healthy eating stopped, as did the exercise. Did I mention the all day sickness? Blech. I don’t know if it’s being older or what, but I did not have this the first time around.
My first trimester diet pretty much consisted of three things:
Super healthy, right? I’ve been able to eat some fruits but can’t stomach vegetables. Didn’t think I’d ever want to eat a salad so bad!
So here I am at 16 weeks. Out of the first trimester and starting to get my appetite back. Bring on the vegetables!
