The start of this year has been very wonderful for me as I am finally ” almost recovering” from the pain of pregnancy sickness. Im now on my 25th week and so far, I am feeling better than I did the first 4 months . I still vomit occasionally but my energy seems to be keeping up more with me now.
So I am back on track. And of course that means Im fully capable again of doing my old routine:
*Going to work.
*My sweet duty of caring for my husband.
*Cleaning the house
*Keeping all the bills and apppointment dates in check.
*Do 10-15 minutes yoga stretches daily, once in the morning and once before bed.
*Going out on casual dates with my husband.
* Late night Smallville dvd marathon with my husband.
Moreover, I now have these things to start tending to:
* Plan for all neccesary changes that I need to make before our baby arrives.
* Prepare the room and the house ( de-clutter, that is) for some changes to adopt a new friendly space for the baby and her stuffs.
*Shop for baby’s stuffs
I love to do all these things and the idea of preparing for our baby keeps me excited. But knowing myself, I have this tendency of planning too much and stressing myself too easily. Not that these things are pressures, but I DO have this unwanted talent of putting unecessary pressure on myself. A slight disruption in my time schedule makes my composure go out of wack.
From my 4 months experience of pregnancy sickness, I have already drawn this proven formula:
pressures+ stress+ cramming + hunger or too much food= vomiting
Now I know that I need to keep myself in check. While I am feeling my energy going back again after the 4 month long hiatus of being sick, I still have to consider that Im not that fully well to take on too much task at a time. I dreaded vomiting. Anybody who has suffered nausea in pregnancy surely understands why. So im taking it easy and remind myself that I have time on my hands.
Everything will be okay. and besides, this period is a lovely moment of preparation that I should cherish. Its my first baby and I should enjoy these moments.
