I thought I would be a nervous wreck in the beginning and worry about everything but actually the opposite happened. I was very calm and knew that I had no control over what was happening in the early weeks and the only thing I could do was take care of myself. I took things day by day because I knew they were critical.
This week my breasts were very tender. This is how I knew I was pregnant. I had some mild cramping that I felt was normal. My energy was the same. My appetite got smaller because I instantly started watching everything I ate. I also made sure I stayed consistent with exercise. I knew I was now training for the biggest race of my life.
