Twenty-eight weeks pregnant (again) with my second, and this time it’s a boy. With my first pregnancy I tried to keep ya’ll up to date on how I was feeling and how chronic Lyme was affecting my pregnancy on a regular basis. This time around I’ve been a little more laid back about my updates, though no purposefully. I think this is primarily due to things being somewhat similar to my previous experience being pregnant with Lyme. However, there are definitely some differences that I decided I definitely needed to share. I talk about all of these in my video (linked below), but let’s take a second to recap…For starters, the first thing I noticed early on in my pregnancy was my changes in reactions (allergies). With Allie I found my tolerance to food increased most drastically once into my 2nd trimester. However, this time around it seems my over-reactivity to foods quickly lowered early on in my 1st trimester. Another difference was that with Allie I had debilitating all-day-morning sickness into my 2nd trimester. With our little guy this time around I only had morning sickness for a couple weeks (the clue to me thinking to take a pregnancy test) and haven’t felt near as crappy as before. I’ve been able to continue working out and it seems to help me feel more human this time around as well. Overall, I believe there were a few things that helped contribute to feeling better this second time around, which I discuss briefly in my video. As always, please feel free to reach out if you have any questions! I feel blessed to be able to even write the title of this post and am always open to sharing the intricacies of my story to anyone interested.
