Pregnancy with lipedema
It has become a little quiet around me. And there is a compelling reason for this that I no longer want to hide from you:
Zack! Boom! Our dream child is already turning our world upside down. I recently wrote a report on the subject Desire to have children and lipedema. At this point I already knew that it worked for us.

Mood and feelings
We are really looking forward to our little miracle. I am very happy with it and have wonderful support from my family. Of course, I would be lying if I said that I wasn't a little scared too. My first child - an adventure into the unknown.
Desires / dislikes
The list is getting long! I had cravings right at the beginning. It started when I was totally into trail mix and nuts. All of a sudden it turned completely over. Unfortunately, I am currently very affected by pregnancy sickness. 24 hours a day - non-stop. Not a nice feeling, very stressful. I can neither smell nor see food. Coffee? Flesh? Never! It was so far that I got the worst nausea even from a glass of water. I can't open our fridge at the moment, the smell is just unbearable. Fried food, pasta, rice, potatoes, vegetables, fruit ... everything turns my stomach upside down. But I'm lucky that I don't have to throw up. It's just that unspeakable nausea. I also don't like to smell fabric softener at all and our normal laundry detergent really doesn't smell good to me at the moment. That's why I'm currently on sick leave, because I am not able to do my two jobs. I have to make sure that I keep myself alive if you will. Maybe I was just bitten by a genetically modified spider ... Spider Women with super special abilities.
I'm not wearing my compression right now. My normal ones press too much on my stomach. It's really totally uncomfortable. I have already contacted my medical supply store and my pregnancy compression is in the works (more on that as soon as I have it). Otherwise I don't notice any water retention or additional pain. Thank God!
My breasts! Dear ladies, how do you do it? Mine exploded and I already had to buy a new bra. Not that easy, because you don't want to spend a fortune. In addition, it is not exactly painless.
I'm just tired, I could really sleep as much as a marmot. Unfortunately, due to the nausea and tiredness, I am currently unable to do any of my sports activities. It makes me feel bad, but try not to put pressure on myself. I just can't change that right now and try to accept the state.
Pregnancy with lipedema - what can we expect?
At the end of May the neckfold measurement is due and I hope that everything is ok there. I'm scouring the internet for nice children's furniture and I'm looking forward to designing the baby room soon.
Dear ones, I hope you enjoyed the little insight.
