Well, I will be tomorrow, so I thought I would go ahead and post it that way. This week has been better, though my new year's resolution to wake up early is not working out at all! I have a flexible schedule due to my husband being my boss (I'm working as his paralegal for now even though I am a registered dietitian). Everyone I've talked to said I should go ahead a sleep while I can, so I am heeding this advice.
My headaches are better since I started massage therapy last week. I am going to do it once a week until I get significant relief. I am also doing the Circle and Bloom meditations for pregnancy midday to relax my whole body. So hopefully headaches will be less chronic.
I ordered a new prenatal yoga video from Amazon (Element- Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga) and tried it out yesterday. I like it because it is only a 30 minute session and I can just add kegels and another exercise that is good for keeping the SI joint stable during pregnnacy. I like Shiva Rea's prenatal video, but an hour of yoga is a big commitment on a weekday.
This morning, I was sitting at my desk and noticed I hadn't felt the baby moving yet today and I started feeling like I needed to go home and use the fetal doppler. I prodded around my belly for a minute and then about a minute later, I felt him bumping around, like "Here I am!" It made me so happy that I can already communicate with him!
It's been a mellow week. I've found out that 3 of my friends are expecting in the Spring as well (due dates all before me which annoys me for some reason - I've got a competitive streak!). I still get a pang of jealousy when I hear that a friend is expecting their second baby when their first baby is even out of diapers yet. It's ridiculous, but the pain of infertility is still with me even though I am moving into the mommy club too.
I'm just looking forward to the 20 week scan on Jan 26th! Hope the next 2 weeks fly by!
