#preeclampsia is no joke.
With @alexdevoyyy, I almost died due to preeclampsia and post-eclampsia. Back then, I was young and didn't know how to advocate for my medical care. Heck, I didn't even know what was going on.
When the same symptoms started occuring in this #pregnancy, you can bet your bottom dollar that I advocated for myself and for my #baby. Everyone kept saying, every pregnancy is different which is actually true, but I think many people discount a woman's intuition with knowing what's going on with her own body.
So I wanted to post this #facetofacetransformation comparing myself on the day of delivery 1/8/18 to ten days later to #inspire women to always advocate for their very best medical care.
I remember with Alex, my ob thought I was fat and that I was over-eating. At 19/20, I was too scared to question him. I mean he was a doctor and I felt like I was just a nobody.
With this doctor, he listened but still needed labs to validate the symptoms to take Liam earlier than my due date for his safety and mine. I am so glad I stood up. I hope women find the courage within to speak up until they are heard. And thus post is to remind women including myself, that we rise by lifting others and ourselves should cpunt too . I am happy to report that with anti-seizure and high blood pressure meds, I'm down at least 40+ lbs. I'm exactly 3lbs away from my pre-pregnancy #weight.
And btw, this post isn't just about weight...its about me remaining on #wellness journey to be the very best me I can be IN EVERY ASPECT INCLUDING #HEALTH.

The wife had half a bag of 30kg landscaping stones left...hummm...that's 15kg (33lbs) I can deadlift. Not that heavy so it's going to be a high rep set to feel the burn...but it should work regardless!!! #infinitylifefitness
WATER! This has been my biggest aid in recovery and will be my greatest tool in weight loss. And I love my contigo water bottle! Having the right water bottle made a world of a difference in the amount of water I drink.
