I'm Pregnant!

Ever since I a took Lifecycle Nutrition class about 3 years ago, I've been anxiously looking forward to getting pregnant. At the time I felt like I was crazy, but I found everything about nutrition from pregnancy through early childhood insanely fascinating and couldn't wait to apply it to my own life. I just knew that once I had some "street cred", I'd be able to make a huge impact in the health and wellness world.  

So, my friends, this phase has finally come!  I am 14 weeks pregnant and couldn't be happier. I have to admit, eating healthy is a lot easier said than done during the first trimester. I was constantly sick, had difficulty exercising (let alone getting out of bed) and my diet was basically thrown out the window. It felt like the only thing I could stomach was bagels with cream cheese! Even though it was difficult and frustrating, and the nutritionist in me was cringing regularly, I learned a lot about honoring my body and going with the flow. Let's just say attempting to force feeding myself salads and smoothies did not end well. :)

Thankfully, those days are just about over. I'm now in my second trimester and finally starting feeling good. I'm also starting to eat like my old self, so recipes and nutrition posts will be coming soon. I also plan to share a lot on here about all things pregnancy, birth and life as a new mom. If there are any topics you would like me to write about, please let me know. I am so ecstatic to be going through this journey and am looking forward to sharing it with all of you!
