Default I am pregnant!

I have been sitting on this news for about 2 weeks now. Debating how to 'disclose' this information, if I should wait, etc. I am still pretty early (6 weeks along today), I am not telling my family or friends until at least 4 more weeks. I have my first Ob appointment in 2 weeks. VERY excited - this happened faster than I thought it would - we officially started trying in December and I guess it just 'clicked'. I am happy, excited, scared, nervous and can't keep complaining to my husband about everything - that's what I have my IP family for!!!!

Morning sickness officially kicked in today - nearly lost it when I opened up my lunch, which was a delicious dinner 2 days ago. For some reason the smell just affected me crazy today!

Anyways - I still plan on sticking around, still plan on posting my menus, still plan on working out, still plan on putting in my $0.02, and will be asking for advice and sounding off, venting, etc. The reason I started IP in the first place was to work toward a healthy second pregnancy and I have been maintaining for 4 months and established a great workout routine that I am continuing and have made some modifications to (no more Bootcamps, just Bodypump & running).

Thanks everyone!! I am very happy, but also scared and nervous at the same time. I will be leaning on everyone for support and venting!

I had an unknown pre-existing back condition when I got pregnant with my son, I was overweight and of course that coupled with the stress of the pregnancy aggravated the condition (spondylolysthesis). I now have 3 vertebrae out of alignment that creates 2 bulging disks, which aggravate 2 nerves running down my leg. I threw my back out 3 times severe enough for bed rest and had chronic back pain until I lost the first 40lb on IP and have been pain-free since. I knew if I wanted to have a healthy second pregnancy I needed to drop the weight.

This has been my "plan" all along and I hope to continue down a path for a healthy second pregnancy!
