I'm at 12 weeks with 194 days to go! It just doesn't seem real, and I feel like I'm cheating my poor baby out of precious pregnancy memories I could be writing down or something. When I first found out I was pregnant (from a pregnancy test at 4:00 in the morning!) I could hardly wait to sit down and start writing about my thoughts. Now, 2 journal entries and about 7 weeks later, I'm at a loss for words. (I mean, I'm not really gonna share about the constant peeing or the ridiculously sore boobs in a journal for my child!!) I guess I'm not really feeling overwhelmed about having a baby (at least not yet) since I've been feeling pretty good and since I feel like I've seen every pregnancy video imaginable at LifeLine to prepare me. But I just need some inspiring ways to spend this special time in my life or ways to start knowing how to plan for the baby. Even though I work with pregnant women practically every day, I seem to be clueless about how to spend time during my own pregnancy! I'm honestly just waiting for the "nesting period" to kick in so I'll start seriously cleaning our house - that would be a productive aspect of pregnancy!
Alright, you moms out there - any suggestions for how to most enjoy and take in these special nine months?? Let me know! You'll be proud...I'm at least going to "enjoy" this time today and actually go workout for the first time in about 3 months! Unbelievable.
