I almost fainted yesterday. I was presenting a pre-op to my attending for an oral surgery extraction and felt a little off. A few minutes later, I got a wave of lightheadedness, my vision went blurry, and I got very hot. I have fainted before and I knew that if I didn’t sit down, I would have hit the floor. I was able to make it to a chair, sip some water and eat some food, but it was scary. I called my doctor and she told me that I need to make sure I’m staying hydrated and not change positions too suddenly.
This quote seemed to fit perfectly into my life right now. I am carrying precious life. I love this little one more than words can describe. I need to take care of myself, period.

On a happier note, I’ve been feeling so much baby movement since Friday! Our little one is very active! I absolutely love these little twists and kicks.
P.S. I’m still accepting questions for my next Q&A post, keep them coming!
