Things that hurt, irritate, and need to go away.

Pregnancy comes with so many bells and whistles that even a super know it all mom can’t know exactly everything… Especially when it comes to symptoms. I’m not one of those annoying know it alls but I do research pregnancy every single day to try to learn more about what’s going on in my body. I can not for the life of me figure out my butt hole hurts. It hurts all of the time. Especially when I’m trying to poop or after I poop. Yeah this is kind of gross but it’s real. I don’t really get constipated either and that is a common pregnancy thing. But whatever, hopefully it goes away. But it still sucks amongst other pregnancy related things.
Every now and then my tailbone starts hurting so badly that I can’t put pressure against it by standing on a certain leg or sitting on it. That’s probably not common but maybe it is because after all, we are all made differently. I think I read something about that or my sister told me she had the same thing happen to her throughout her pregnancy.
Another thing that sucks at the moment is the fact that I can’t drink anything dark. Like tea. Sweet tea is my favorite drink and my weakness by all means. If I dare to drink anything dark in color it burns when I pee until I completely flush my system by drinking 10 (not literally) bottles of water. So I pretty much drink water, orange juice, skim milk (my favorite), and nerds slushies only. I completely cut caffeine out of my diet as far as I know. When I do slip up and drink tea, I drink decaffeinated. I won’t drink soda at all anymore. It is torture on my body. And I’m 13 weeks pregnant and have actually lost weight… Probably due to my healthy choices. I am not one of those people that are skin and bones and can’t bear to lose weight, but I’m not over weight or heavy. It’s safe and healthy if you lose a couple of pounds due to changing your diet during pregnancy.
Oh and exercise! I want to start exercising so badly! I just don’t know what workouts to do! I know that you can do just about anything you would normally do but I don’t want to jump into big things. I would like to keep it simple. It’s freezing cold where I live so outside isn’t much of an option, gym memberships are overrated in my opinion, and I need tips on things to do at home!
I learned that eating healthy and exercising during pregnancy makes for an easier, quicker and less painful delivery!
