9 Week Update and Traveling During First Trimester

Heading out to Japan and been reading a lot on what I should do in the plane like:
The only real risk of a long flight is a DVT (deep venous thrombosis) or blood clot. This is a risk for all travelers on long flights, but pregnant women are at higher risk. To help prevent this from happening, see the tips below. Below are a few travel tips to pregnant women on the go:
1. Book an Aisle Seat – It’s easier access for your hourly walks and trips to the restroom.
2. Prevent Air Sickness – If you are still in the morning sickness phase of pregnancy, air travel may make things worse. Ask your practitioner for an anti-nausea medication to take with you.
3. Wear Pantyhose – Some practitioners recommend that you wear support stockings to increase circulation and prevent a blood clot from developing in your leg.
4. Take a Walk – Avoid being immobilized for long periods of time.
5.Take an empty water bottle with you in carry-on luggage and fill it up after you get through security.
6. Go Gas Free – Don’t drink or eat any gas-producing items (carbonated beverages, refried beans, etc.) before or during your flight. Entrapped gas expands at higher altitudes and can give you a stomachache.
7. Carry snacks and know your pressure points!

Quick update:
I found a midwife and I love her/them! Am feeling slightly tired and a bit of nausea but nothing major. Eating mini meals through out the day. Loads of fruits makes me happy!

Was worried a little about traveling and feeling sick, but it was better than I thought! If you feel like you will have a harder time then don’t force yourself! Talk with your doctor/mid wife before you book any flights.

I’m Pregnant

I’m pregnant. It is a hard secret to keep. From day one you just want to tell everyone (which some people do) but since it was quite a struggle to get here, I thought I should keep it to ourselves until we felt we were at the healthiest we could be to announce it. And now is the time! Finally!
My husband and I couldn’t be happier! We still cannot believe it. I can kinda tell something is growing inside of me but honestly we haven’t done an ultrasound and I haven’t felt anything move yet so it still kinda feels surreal in a way. BUT! I am feeling the pregnancy vibes so I am learning how to take it easy and be as healthy as I can be for this little creation inside me. For some reason though, this little baby has made it some what easy on me. It makes me crave fruits and veggies! It’s a healthy one.
I posted up the video on to my YouTube account earlier today (12:30PM) it is currently 4PM and am overwhelmed once again by all your kind messages. Really brings tears to my eyes reading that this video made you happy or even cry with joy!!
I have said it before, putting up personal videos is one of the hardest things to do but it also is the most rewarding. Thank you guys for that. Cannot wait to share everything I am going through with you all!!! Hope you don’t mind❤︎
