My pregnancy truths

Hey my loves,

Now that I have completed the beautiful journey that is pregnancy, I feel like I can whole heartedly share my experience with ya'll and remember this is MY experience. Not every pregnancy is the same and every woman goes through pregnancy differently. 

Before being pregnant I heard of some of the things women go through during pregnancy such as morning sickness, increase in boob size and random spurts of tiredness.

Here are some of my truths, the good the bad and the. . . 

1. Leg cramps 

Only God knows why these occur during pregnancy, however it happened and sometimes several times a week. It would literally wake me up randomly at night and last for a few seconds. Thank God for hubby who would wake up in a state to help massage my cramping calf.

2. Tender, huge boobs 

I was really hoping this would last a few weeks or months but pretty much was throughout my pregnancy. That even to hug someone too tight was super uncomfortable, but on the plus side (no pun intended) much to my husbands delight they did get bigger by 3 bra sizes. 

3. Pregnancy insomnia

I've never been one to struggle to sleep at night or to get back to sleep if woken up in the middle of the night, that all changed in the last few months of pregnancy. I would randomly wake up for no reason, and struggle for hours to get back to sleep, which was frustrating when having to wake up for work a couple hours later.

4. Loss in appetite

A lot of women speak of having to eat for two whilst pregnant, maybe I did that when I was not pregnant lol, as I really had little desire to eat whilst pregnant, and when I did have big meals I found that I was full quickly. So instead I made sure that I had little bits of food to eat throughout the day, which I found more manageable. 

5. Glowing skin

Whilst some say being pregnant saps all the goodness out your skin, I can tell you this!!!
Baby girl gave me the actual GLOW of LIFE!!!!
My skin felt and looked AMAZING!! I would just walk out my house no make up just moisturiser and lip balm and feel just flawless. So thank you princess.

And last but not least. . .

6. Thick luscious hair
I've always had thick hair, however with every wash my hair used to shed a lot! One time the amount of hair that came out scared me to the point of me searching for a bald spot in my head. 
Whilst pregnant, there was minimal to NO shedding, this resulted to my hair feeling healthy, thicker and longer than ever.

 Just to name a few. And remember every pregnancy is different and every woman experiences pregnancy differently. So never feel the need to compare yourself with other women. 

All my love,
