Blogging tips

Alright, here's your warning, I'm going to get all of the negativity out of my system in hopes that it might make me feel a little better.  And let it be totally understood that I'm VERY grateful for my precious little Isaac, and I really can't wait to meet him.  

Okay, that said...I'm so tired of feeling like crap.  :(  This pregnancy has been so awful in comparison to my other two.  I don't do pregnancy well anyway, granted, but I don't know how I'm going to make it another 15 weeks.  I don't know how my KIDS are going to make it another 15 weeks!  I'm afraid they're going to turn into little TV zombies.  Anytime I don't feel good, which is quite often nowadays, I let them watch TV while I lay on the couch.  I feel so lazy!

I'm frustrated that I can't work out (too tired and achy) because it helped so much with Levi's pregnancy.  I'm frustrated that I can't play with my kids for very long before I get tired and achy.  I can't even sit on the floor and play with them because it hurts my back too much.  I'm totally not liking that this pregnancy has introduced me to sciatica - not fun at all!  I also hate that in the morning when I'm showering and doing my hair and makeup my heart starts beating really fast and it's hard to get my heart rate back down.  I'm also frustrated that most of the yoga classes at my gym are power yoga, which is too much for me right now.  And don't get me started on the things that people say about my belly.

I just can't wait until the baby is born and I can start getting back into shape and feeling like a normal person again.  I miss energy and good moods and flexibility.  I miss caffeine and wine and sleeping on my back.

Okay, that felt good.  I think I'm done.  I'm open to suggestions.  I do think I'm going to buy another pregnancy yoga DVD.  I loaned my other one out and never got it back.  That should help with my body aches and pains.  I could also be more proactive in doing things with my kids from the couch, like reading books.  I can't do that all day long, though.  Any other suggestions?

  1. I drank a little wine and a little caffeine through my pregnancies...don't know if that helps. But as a midwife I can give you several good reasons to drink a little wine. The caffeine, not so much. I just needed it.

    Other than that, I've got nothin'.;) BUT, even if y'all spent the entire 15 weeks in front of the t.v., I'm sure everyone would be well-cuddled and well-fed:)


I love to hear from you!
