We have officially decided on March 22nd as the last day I take BC. I thought we should do something special to celebrate, so I’ve made reservations at the Blue Bayou in Disneyland for dinner that day.
David and I have discussed it thoroughly and decided that May 2nd is going to be my last day of work. Even though I’m down to 4 days a week, those 4 days I have to be there are very stressful. I think it would be best for baby prep to be home and focused on being the best, healthiest me possible. I know that women of all shapes and sizes can have healthy babies, but I want to create the best possible baby growing environment that I can.
I have been very focused on exercising in the past 2 weeks. I’ve made great progress and hope to continue working toward a sustainable workout schedule that I can modify if necessary during my pregnancy. I’ve also decided to run a 5K while potentially up to 3 months pregnant. I’ve read about it and as long as its something I’ve been doing, I can continue doing it during pregnancy.
I ordered another baby book last week called Raising Baby Green: The Earth-Friendly Guide to Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Baby Care. I found it to be extremely fascinating. It really put into perspective just how many better choices David and I can make for our children. I know, kids have been raised with chemicals and pesticides and all that stuff for decades with no problems. Doesn’t mean we have to do it that way. We’ve decided to take and eco approach to all this baby stuff. I’m going to be preparing much more of our food from scratch and more whole foods.
Its all starting to become more real and I am growing very excited. I will continue to take the best care of my body that I can in preparation for creating a human being.
