Full Transparency comes with honesty

So I have been keeping a secret from you guys…..I have to apologize, but you will soon understand why. I had a such a poor performance in June because I found out yes I’m pregnant. I’m now 15 weeks pregnant and Due in February.

For all the ladies out there you can sympathize with the fact that I had baby brain in June. For all the men, baby brain is a phenomenon when the hormones in a woman’s body go haywire with all this baby growth and make your brain fuzzy. It feels like if you have every had a great workout and your blood sugar is low and your brain just doesn’t seem to be clear.  That is the best way I can describe the fuzziness that happened.

Not only that but I also had morning sickness where I just felt like puking all day long.

So that is why I only really traded for 2 weeks in June. When my brain wasn’t feeling right and I was feeling sick I stepped away from my desk.

It is very important to be in touch with your body and your mind to have a clear head to make great decisions in trading.

I found I was making super beginner mistakes in June because my reactions were slow.

Again it happened the beginning of this month when I went for the genetic testing. I had my tests done on August 4th and for the next two weeks my mind was slightly distracted. I found out the results last week that the genetics testing was all good and the ultrasound looked like no issues presenting at this time.

We are still waiting on one stressful test of Zika Virus. As you all know my husband is a pilot and flies to Caribbean destinations. Well when he was in Cuba and his fellow pilot opened the cockpit window to get some fresh air he was bit by a mosquito. It was only  one bite and the chances are low, but we have to be smart. So we did the test now 3 weeks ago and we are waiting on the serology results to come back negative. So my mind is still a bit distracted.

I have to apologize as being a transparent trader this was a hard secret to keep quiet from you all. For those that will be meeting me in Orlando you will see the tiny belly bump. And it explains my unstoppable cravings for Wings and wing sauce. Mmmmmm

Phew feels good to come clean about that one.

Sometimes I’m also exhausted at the end of the day and that is why my blogs are some times off schedule from Tues, Fri. Trying to get better about that.
