A few months back, Brandon (my fiance) and I were ecstatic to find out that we are expecting!We are so overjoyed to be welcoming our own bundle of joy into the world later this year (Dec. 29, 2017, in fact!). That being said my first trimester was not the most enjoyable. Many women have a difficult time during their first few months, however, mine, unfortunately, was a little rougher than most.
Unfortunately, I have been experiencing morning sickness…at all times of the day. Coupled with really bad nausea, I have been loosing more weight than normal. Since the start of my pregnancy, I have lost more than 40 pounds. (& goodness that’s a lot!) To help with the weight loss, I have been undergoing “infusions” a few times a week. Which we do in order to help baby and I keep food and water down. At the infusion clinic, I am hooked up to an IV to receive fluids and medication to help me eat.

It’s not the most enjoyable, however, the baby is doing really well and is healthy. Which I am incredibly thankful for! & with the infusions, im now holding my weight steady, and I am officially showing a baby bump! (insert excited up and down screaming).
I am told that women loosing more weight than normal during pregnancy is something that can happen, I just had no idea! I have always heard of gaining too much, not loosing lol. But, everyone’s body responds differently to pregnancy.
Currently, we are 26 weeks along, and we are almost done with our second trimester. (Time is flying by so so fast). Can’t believe that our little boy will be here in less than a few months. (mind blown!)
