I thought I would be blogging more during pregnancy - how I'm staying healthy, diet/exercise, how I'm dealing with the changes in my body, how I'm working on my self/body image, etc.
I thought I would revitalize my blog with a topic that is relevant to a whole new group of people that I never really could connect with before - moms-to-be/moms! But, I am a novice here and definitely know how much I don't know!
I eat, I sleep, I think about eating and sleeping. My body is changing rapidly, and I'm pretty uncomfortable about it (though I rarely have the energy to devote much time to that). Though I want a child so, so much and am really excited about being a parent - well, this whole pregnancy thing isn't really my forte. I'm not an expert and I'm not exactly doing all of this with grace!
So I've gone a little silent.
I'm hopeful that I'll start feeling a little more like myself in a few weeks - eager to get back into yoga, strength training, and getting some fitness back. Right now, though, I prioritize sleep above everything! I'm still walking about 9/10k a day, so I am being as active as I can (that's usually enough to put me down for the night). Food has evened out a little. I've reduced the sugar and the grains, which has helped even me out. Gotten back on a normal dinner routine - we had cod, sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts on Monday. Chris' friend (who is a professional chef) made us dinner last night - a beautiful salad of watercress and carrots with an amazing herb yogurt dressing and sausage with homemade pasta.
I had my dental x-ray tomorrow. Hoping for the best there. Another medical thing I am waiting on - turns out that I am a carrier for Cystic Fibrosis, so Chris had to go in Monday to get his blood drawn and tested. Hopefully we hear sooner rather than later that he is NOT a carrier! His sister has been tested when she was pregnant, and she is not a carrier, so it's really unlikely he is. But it's a worried little thought in the back of my mind.
So that is where I am. I don't want to shut my blog down completely - I've really enjoyed it over the years, sharing my stories and hearing others. It's been really awesome. But I also know enough to tone down the posts a little when I get repetitive and boring :)
Will check in with any updates and if/when I ever have a coherent thought about this whole process that doesn't revolve around IAMSOHUNGRYOHGOD. Hahaha :)
Much love to you all, namaste <3
