inky leuhh--I feel pretty miserable and sorry for myself lately. I don't worry about BFing (after the first terrible 2 months I've always loved and cherished it), but there are a lot of mixed emotions right now. And the m/s doesn't help any! I think I've been feeling worse at 11wks than I did before, which is quite depressing. I hate to admit this, but I guess sometimes I wonder if I should have waited longer to get pg again. . .there are just a lot of fear I guess about adding a second child into the mix. So that's been my negative vibe. . .I'm sure it will pass and I'll get super excited. . .but just wanted to say that I can relate to how you're feeling.
Congrats Pilar! (I seriously have to remember your name b/c no way I can type montessorimama every time! I can't even spell it!) Let us know when you're back in the USA! And yes, maternity clothes are really comfy . . .good thing I got so sick of all of mine last time or I would have never switched back to normal clothes PP. (It did take me a good two months to make the switch after ds was born though!)
I'm feeling out of shape myself. I need to find a Pilates class that a pg lady can take, b/c I don't think yoga is enough for me. I need some real core work (which yes, you can do while pg as long as you know what to do and what not to do).
Mostly though I am just a bit overwhelmed by taking care of a toddler, summer heat, m/s, and tiredness. Then I start thinking that I'm going to be adding a new baby into my life and I get really freaked out. We are also going be moving in November. . .which still seems like a better option than moving after the baby is born . . .but still makes me anxious thinking about it.
But if I can get out of my negative rut here, I did find a great MW that I really clicked with and I am super excited to start working with her. I have high, high hopes for this birth (and my first was great). I really hope to be able to do a lot more myself and stay more active rather than just taking instruction from the MW. I'd love to catch my own baby if possible. Also, have my 12wk screening a week from Monday. . .mostly excited about that although it does come with a bit of anxiety. I haven't heard the baby's hb since my 7wk u/s though, so I'll be really really grateful and happy to see a kicking bean in there. I can't wait till I can feel this baby move and have that constant reassurance of their presence.
