So I was doing the Le-Vel 8 week Thrive challenge and I was loving every minute of it!
I had tons of energy.
I woke up happy and ready to live my crazy life.
I wanted to workout and continue to workout once I already was.
I had lost 10 pounds in 14 days.
I was making better eating choices.
I was in love with my Thrive.
Change of Subject.... to some girly stuff :)
I don't ever get my period. I have PCOS. So since I had my last daughter 20 months ago, I had one period that I induced with an essential oil called Sclaressence. I used it just like you would use birth control to regulate your period. That was in November. I was pretty sure that month I ovulated. I also gained 7 pounds in the 8 days I used it so I didn't do it again until February, which according to my first ultrasound was when I conceived!
So, because I don't get my period, I randomly take pregnancy tests because I feel like it's the responsible thing to do. I need to know so I can put better, more, less, etc of certain things in my body.
The Wednesday before last I took a test. You know when you take tests every month or so and you think there might be a little chance you get so crushed when it's negative. Devastated. This time, I really, truly thought there was no way, but I was ok with that. I knew I was getting in better shape and I knew that our time would come again in a couple months.
Wellll.... I'm sure you can guess.... POSITIVE!!
And I always think I'm going to hold it in and announce things so wonderfully creative and fun to my family, but I can rarely keep it in. The closest I got was with Paisley where I made Kassidy a shirt that said Big Sister and showed it to her and Mike.
Back to Thrive....
I need to check with my dr about taking it. There's not really anything in it that worries me so I'm pretty sure I'll be cleared just like I've heard other women are.
My biggest pregnancy symptom is complete exhaustion.... like the world could be on fire and all I want is to take a nap!! But, guess what?! I didn't have any of that exhaustion until I stopped taking my Thrive. So I am really, really, really hoping that I can start to take the pills again.... after all it is just a vitamin and probiotic. (all natural, non-gmo in case you were wondering :)
