How did/do you feel while pregnant?

Back in May... I would wake up every morning drink herbal tea and meditate, stretch, go to the gym and cook for myself. Now, that I'm pregnant its very hard for me to keep up with that lifestyle.
I always love to be very transparent. For those of you who have been following me from the beginning... you've seen me lose 40 plus pounds, heal myself of IBS and leaky gut, transition to a plantbased lifestyle, overcome hormonal imbalance, battle infertility and become pregnant.

I am 4 going on 5 months and I have more bad days than good days. Its totally worth it though! This pregnancy is humbling me for sure. My energy is so low, I cry over things I cant control like experiencing an ache, I am super needy, my appetite is horrible and I am not a master of my emotions.
I found out I was pregnant at 5 weeks and I always imagined myself being super active while pregnant. The first 2 weeks of finding out I was pregnant where incredible! I was doing my cardio, fixing myself raw juice, making salads for lunch, always in nature! By week 8 I was sick every day, all day.

This experience is so humbling! After today, I am totally surrendering to this pregnancy. I am no longer going to fight through discomfort, work when I am dizzy/nauseous or force myself to do things my body isnt up for. Im so use to moving how I want. Im use to being emotionally strong, but today I crashed BIG TIME! Sacrifices have to be made but, its all worth it.
