I might let a friend be a midwife for her numbers, but leaning toward not. I'll do a check up with a midwife later for confirmation of pregnancy so we can get a birth cert, but that'll be it unless intuition leads me otherwise.
I'm constipated, never had that symptom. Did some research, apparently the increase in progesterone causes a slowing of digestion, which leads to heartburn (check) and constipation (check!). So reassuring.
I'm fat already. Pretty disgusting right. But in pregnancy I don't body shame myself, as long as I'm eating enough protein/calories/salt to make me feel good I'm not concerned with what my ending weight is. My priority is growing another person, expanding my blood volume, nourishing my placenta.
