Aw congrats! I found out I was preggo 11 weeks ago (I'm now 15 weeks)
Congratulations to you as well.
and cried and cried. I thought this year would be the year to get my body back. Week 7-12 was really rough for me. I just had to rest a lot. After that things have gotten a lot better and dare I say I feel better than I have in awhile. I chalk that up to rising progesterone. I also take suppositories of progesterone through week 15 because I've had losses in the past due to low levels. SO yeah...Just make sure to rest and eat well :)
Be careful with progesterone. It can have a lot of nasty side effects.
Like Saljoe, I was oober frightened about the delivery but really when I think about it, there's so much more joy than there is the trauma of even a hard birth. Breastfeeding especially gives us those great hormones that make us feel great!
Breastfeeding raises levels of the peptide oxytocin. Oxytocin is involved in pair bonding along with vasopressin and is what also gives both men and women orgasms.
