Ive been a little m.i.a lately and heres why...
Im a little over 15 weeks pregnant!
Feeling excited and anxious for January 2017 (2 under 2, send coffee)...
This pregnancy started like the last with all day nausea and exhaution, but something felt a little different, a little bit harder.
A few weeks ago, I had middle back pain that felt excruciating for 2 days, but being me, I blew it off as a pulled muscle. We then went up to Tahoe and I was still in pain that felt like it was getting worse, and had to go to the ER. I was hospitalized for 3 days where they diagnosed me with a gall bladder disease and saw lots of gall stones. Because I was in the 1st trimester and my gb was so infected, surgery wasnt an option. The surgeon said to wait until 2nd trimester and have it removed.
We are in the process now of working with specialists in SF and deciding to remove gall stones, remove gall bladder, or leave it until after pregnancy which is my goal! What I have done and continue to do is to modify my diet so I'm eating as little fat as possible (fun when you're pregnant) and work on breaking up these gall stones naturally. Still exhausted, but haven't relapsed since the week after my hospital visit.
I felt like sharing finally because I've reached the 2nd trimester and know the baby is doing well! I've also had to give up a lot of my classes (heated power flow, mama + baby, pure barre), I'm postponing my September retreat, and taking some time for my health, my toddler, and this growing babe.
My only public class right now is Tuesday 7-8pm at Parkpoint in Sonoma (every other week).
I'm feeling good, just taking it easy, which is something I dont usually do :)
Lots of love to all you happy shiny people out there,
