I am 24 weeks pregnant today, or 6 months exactly. Time is flying! I almost want time to slow down so that I can start savoring every moment of this pregnancy. I fell feel like up until now, I have been walking on eggshells, waiting for the other shoe to drop.
But this morning, I woke up energized, uplifted, happy.
What a difference a day makes.
And now without further ado:
Things that are in:
Viability: Yes that magical week when your child actually has a chance to survive on his own. Finally, when if God forbid I end of going to the hospital and delivering, the NICU and doctors will do everything they can. Simply because you are 24 weeks. WOW.
Exercise: I’ve reached the 20 pounds gained mark as of today. Need I say more? I think I’ll start with some basic walking and maybe some yoga. We’ll see how that goes.
Joy: Self explanatory.
Baby showers: I know some people, don’t like/want them. But damn it, after all these years of going to other people’s baby showers and giving others gifts, I am soooo EXCITED that it’s my turn!! Between work, family and friends, I have 3 of them planned!! I don’t even care what I get, where it is, what the theme is. I’m just so happy that it’s finally MY turn!
Things that are out:
Waxing the lady parts: Ladies( and any gentlemen out there), the wax would kill me. I can’t do it myself, because I can’t see it! And I don’t trust C-Dub with the clippers so near my special parts. You see my dilemma. I can’t have a jungle down there. I don’t want the baby to have to hack his way out with a machete!
Muscle Tone: It’s all gone. Yet another reason to exercise.
Me doing my own pedicures: I just can’t reach my own feet.
