Keeping (What's Left Of) My Mind Through Pregnancy

Having a healthy pregnancy is vital to mommy and baby. Not just to be physically fit but mentally as well. It's hard to keep those worries and crazy emotions in check when your hormones are insanely out of whack. I decided to step out of my routine lifestyle in order to find some balance and emotional stability. I can get so worried and anxious about everything. I thought that yoga would be a good idea to calm my nerves and get a bit of exercise. I purchased 10 classes and have 9 more to go. Because of my schedule I will probably only make it weekly (if that) which means by the time I finish with my package I will be 30 weeks pregnant or more! I can't imagine how hard it's going to be to maneuver by then since my belly is already getting in the way! Anyway, baby girl is doing good. I felt her kick pretty hard this past weekend and Matt put his hand on my stomach and felt her too. I look forward to her getting bigger and her kicks stronger.

21 weeks pregnant

Aw isn't that the best when your husband can feel her kick too?! Can you see the kicks yet? I always thought that was funny when my stomach would visibly bounce around haha

I just went to yoga today and couldn't imagine doing it pregnant! Props to you girl :) Oh and btw... you are the most adorable preggo!

You look adorable! And as a 30 week pregnant chick who IS trying to stay active, you're right. It's not super easy.

I remember my mind racing alllll the time too! Just think about meeting your little baby and that is what helped me :) Feeling my baby move inside was the BEST thing ever!!

I replied to you on my blog but want to make sure you see this... the sound machine came from bed bath and beyond and is $20. I am sure you get coupons from them and I am not sure if you know, but as long as they have your name and address on them (or someone's name and address) you can use them after the expiration date. (And if you don't get coupons, let me know because I have a drawer full!) You could use a $5 off and get it for $15. Well worth it!
