It has been a while since I have posted. I have taken some time to enjoy the first days of finding out that we will be having a little bundle of joy come in December. I announced to our family and friends and now I will continue to enjoy the pregnancy as each day goes by.
Funny enough this pregnancy I have not been as sick as the others. Normally I find out I’m pregnant and right away I will start with the “morning sickness” or all day sickness as most of us have it. I have felt very exhausted and all I can think about is going home and going to sleep. Of course when you have several children like I do you must be creative and I of course can be. I get home from school and we will have dinner, take a bath and then have movie night in bed. This allows for me to rest while I know my kids are nice and safe near me when it’s just us.
I recently gave my notice at work and have started a new company which allows me to work from home. I eventually will come to work in the office but with the pregnancy this is an added bonus. Even on days I don’t feel well I will still be able to work at my pace and get things done. While I have enjoyed the time and experiece I have had with my current company, I have also learned to know when it is time to make the change.
I have recently discovered that I sufer from optical migraines, they are scary! Just this week I was fine other than feeling like that mornig sickness was about to hit.I placed my head on my desk to allow myself a moment. After a moment I raised my head and little by little the vision in my right started to fade. I could see but not enough to read anything clearly. I haven’t been that scared in a very long time. I called my OB/GYN who recommend I go to the hospital and check my blood pressure. Aftering some testing and questions they were able to pinpoint that with hormones increasing I had a start of an optical migraine.
I hope you have enjoyed my catch up time feel free to ask questions.
