The Making of a Mindful Maternity
This week feels like it has been one thing after another. I finally got over last week’s cold. Yeah! Last weekend was great! Grammy was in town, so #1 spent most of the weekend with her. I got to relax, walk, do yoga, spend time with hubby, and a little cleaning out around the house. I gotta say though it was so quiet, we are used to nonstop chatter! And the pool opened, so we’ve all been enjoying that during this hot week!
Unfortunately, during some of my weekend activities I pulled something in my belly (or it is ligament pain due to stretching of the belly, not sure which). So I”ve spent the rest of the week with belly pain. It feels better with little activity, especially when I lie on my side and apply a warm washcloth with saran wrap over it. As the week has gone on it is feeling better. Thursday night I went for a walk, but the pain came back a little so I still have to take it easy. As usual, limiting activity whether it is exercise or just sitting around the house more is hard for me, there is always something to do! I really hate not being able to stick to an exercise plan, but I need to get used to surrendering to the birth process and realizing I can’t be in control of it! Letting go!
The baby is very active and I enjoy feeling her move around. I’m ready for a fun, hot weekend! Swimming pool here I come!
