In July 2014, I decided to begin my MBA at Grand Canyon University. A few weeks later, we suddenly lost my mami unexpectedly. As a family we didn’t know what to do or how to heal from such a tragic loss. The only thing that helped us move forward was her unconditional love her family, her children and her hard work. Indigena was born in her memory.
Come September, I was pregnant yet again and surprised Brian with a positive pregnancy test on our birthday (yes, we are bday twins) September 23! I called the doctors office right away and they got us in the same day. Within a few days I was sent off to a “high risk” specialist and was put on two forms of insulin through the duration of the pregnancy.
A few weeks later we had our appointment to confirm the pregnancy with an ultrasound and determine gestational age. Luckily, I felt that this pregnancy was going to be different. I was at a better place health wise and emotionally needed this baby to help heal from the loss of my mami.
As the weeks went by, everything was going great! Baby was growing, I was more physically able to do more. I was able to pray and continue doing danza. I was able to enjoy the pregnancy with little to no complications. I had been a low-carb vegan up until the second trimester
