I am really starting to feel an urge to get ready for the little one, but since I have no room
in my condo to 'nest' I have decided to take up knitting. I have done it before, but all
I can really make is a scarf....which is not exactly baby friendly, so I am attempting a
newborn hat. So far so good, I will post pictures when It is done!
The baby has been moving around quite a bit, it really has been wonderful to feel the
movements, especially because it eases my neurotic mind. If I don't feel him/her move
for a few hours I will drink some juice and sit quietly, usually I will feel a little bit
of movement then. At around bed time it feels like little one is doing backflips or
something, its quite a lot more movement then I was expecting at this point.
The belly is growing, I actually look pregnant, My belly is growing forward now
instead of just sideways, I swear I have doubled in width. My mother sent me a care
package of cute maternity clothing and I have gotten a few hand me down from friends
so I am actually better dressed now then before....its kinda nice. I feel like a baby bump
gives you a license to wear whatever the hell you want, and I like it. Maybe I will wear
a bikini for the first time in my life this summer, just cause I can! haha
As far as work goes, it has been a bit challenging to teach the fitness classes and some
of the moves I can no longer do at all. I think they are all pretty understanding because
I teach pre/postnatal fitness mostly, but I find it hard to slow down. I am thinking
about cutting down the amount of classes I teach and doing more 'desk work' which
may just include watching Ellen and drinking tea! I will still be attending births up
until July, not so sure if that was a smart choice. I have a client due this week and the
thought of leaving my house right now for an overnight birth is....well.....scary!
Well, It has been a long time since I posted, I am thinking about my fellow bloggers all
the time and praying for baby dust to be spread all around. I am going to spend the next
few minutes/hours reading the posts that I have missed over the last week. I hope everyone
is doing really well!!!
