health

today i went to see my doctor to tell her i'm pregnant. which is kind of funny, considering it was just days ago i was in her office asking for a referral for fertility treatment.

we talked about what happens now in terms of referrals for an ob/gyn, etc. i also had a blood test to confirm the pregnancy, to look at my iron and vitamin d levels, and a couple of other things. all very routine. i'll see her again next week to discuss the results of the tests, and make further plans.

after the appointment i went up to my mum's place in the hills. we visited the health food shop and i got a few things including flaxseed oil, lsa, and a natural pregnancy multivitamin. i also got some yummy organic walnuts, dried cranberries, dates, and sunflower seeds, which i have divided up into mixed portions and put in ziplock bags to make grab-and-go pregnant-woman snacks!

a good way to avoid nausea in early pregnancy is to make sure your blood sugar doesn't drop too low, and the best way to do that is to have regular snacks. these are full of the essential oils, minerals and nutrients i'll need.
