Symptoms to date: Allergic reaction on Wednesday, January 20, 2019 after eating Chicken Fried Rice with Soy Sauce.
I am very hormonal so my initial reaction to everything is intense emotion; crying.
Physical Reaction: I broke out in hives on my sides, thighs, upper back, and hips.
Solution: On Saturday, February 2, 2019 I switched my shampoo, conditioner, lotion, bar soap, toothpaste, and body wash to all natural based products.
Soap – Activated Charcoal & Rose Clay by Splendor Santa Barbara.
Toothpaste – Tom’s of Maine
Body wash, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion – Puracy.
Transformation: My lips are feeling very raw. For the past three days, the skin has been dying and I feel as if I have a new pair of lips. They are very tender and are very pink.
Cure: I’ve been applying a Cold (white colored towel) to increase the blood flow to my lips, twice daily. I have only been applying Petroleum Jelly (unscented) to help hydrate and heal the skin. So far, it has been the only thing that is working!
Overall, I am sleeping well. My appetite is increasing and I am gaining weight steadily. I lost a few pounds (about 5-9) due to the lack of food intake during the first few weeks.
I knew I was pregnant the day I conceived. I am very aware of my body since I’ve been prescription, birth control, and pain killer free since 2013, the insemination was an experience I felt from the very moment.
In 2016, I got back on the Depo for 3 months and I never looked back since then. Other than that, I resort to natural home remedies for any and all issues.
I have a five year old daughter who was born by Cesarean in 2013.
She was 6 days late and would’ve been delivered naturally if I didn’t get induced by doctors order.
This pregnancy, I am planning to deliver naturally and vaginally!
I am ready for this journey. As my body transforms I ask for constant strength and awareness to create a comfortable and abundant experience and journey.
