I had an ok pregnancy. I mean, I only had morning sickness during the first few weeks and was back to my old eating habits again. I didn't gain so much weight which was something I was really anxious about so thank God for gaining only 24 lbs. I think I always looked fresh because I made sure I drink enough water and freshen up whenever I feel tired and hot. I was pretty disciplined except for the one thing I was really very lazy about. I was told to put virgin coconut oil on my tummy to minimize stretchmarks but I was just too lazy to do it. Other than that, i think I even enjoyed my pregnancy.

My pregnancy was okay also. I never did have morning sickness. I ate like I always did and I never gained any weight until I was 7 months pregnant. I wore my same clothes all the way up until then. I blew up over night as soon as I hit 7 months pregnancy. I lost alot of the weight after I had her though. I worked all the way up until the week I had her. I didn't use anything to keep from getting stretch marks but I wiash that I had of now. I didn't really enjoy my pregnancy because I knew I was going to be raising her by myself to begin with. I went into labor with her and I was in there for 15 hours before she was ready to be delivered. That was very painful.

I started throwing up in early June and continued until the end of November. I was admited to the hospital for severe morning sickness and dehydration. I weighted less at the end of my pregnancy then I did the beginning. I wore regulary clothing the whole time. I had pregnancy migraines, I got shingles on my face. I felt miserable the whole time. My now ex-husband went off the deep end and we had Christmas dinner on a psychiatric ward. The pain of labor was very welcome. My son is now 21, and I would do it all again.
