Want to know what really sucks during pregnancy? I mean, if we’re being honest, there’s a lot that sucks. There’s unwanted nausea and morning sickness, crazy round ligament pain, sciatica, fatigue, back pains, and basically any other ailment that your body can experience. So, if you’re pregnant or have been pregnant, I’m pretty much just preaching to the choir, right? What else could possibly suck during pregnancy? Well, friends, that has to be illness. And that can be any illness that isn’t pregnancy related! When you’re growing a baby, there are a lot of medications that are off limits, which makes treating common colds and allergies pretty difficult. My go to medicine for headaches and colds are either ibuprofen or Advil cold and sinus. Cough syrup with alcohol as an ingredient? I’m in! But pregnancy Sabra? Not so much.
Who here has been pitched a “business” opportunity by one of your high school pals that is absolutely obsessed with a new direct sales company?
*Raises hand* Mhmm, I sure have! But my experience with multilevel marketing was pitched to me in a different way. I was at a wedding show and saw a product that had been intriguing me for awhile. A woman displayed a banner by her booth that proudly exclaimed, “18 hour wear lipstick!”. Y’all. Lipstick is my jam! I love playing with bold and bright colors. Picking out my lippie is one of the most exciting parts of my day. Yeah, I know.. I obviously have a pretty entertaining life.
Ever since April 23rd, 2017 the only thing that I can think about is this little human creature growing inside of my belly. That Sunday is one that I will never forget.. and I mean NEVER! Aunt Flow was a day late on her expected arrival which was odd because she was pretty consistent with her visits. You see, my husband and I weren’t intentionally trying to get pregnant (even though I had gotten off of my birth control just 3 months prior). I had been on birth control since the age of 19 and I assumed it would take my body awhile to adjust to the lack of hormones. Birth control was a steady way that I kept my PCOS symptoms at bay and a huge part of that was regulating my periods.
Whew, okay. I did it! I bit the bullet and finally created the blog that I’ve always been dreaming of having. I’ve watched tons of YouTube videos to coach me through the necessary steps it takes to have a successful blog. I’ve stalked every single one of my favorite bloggers to “borrow” ideas and brainstorm what I wanted my own blog to be centered around. I’ve stayed up until midnight resizing my logo again and again and again. The flowers were just.. off, alright?! And now, here were are. It’s live! My own personal blog is live!!!! I’m a tad excited.. can you tell?
