We’re within the residence stretch! Child woman may come any time, actually! Although her due date isn’t till the tip of February, I do know it’s as much as her at this level! Right here’s her most up-to-date image, which is able to in all probability be her final as we aren’t planning to have any extra ultrasounds.
My bump has taken over and I gained’t lie: I’ve gained numerous weight. I’m unsure of the precise quantity, however I’m fairly certain that with a number of weeks nonetheless to go, I’m already up over 40 kilos. How do I really feel about it? Completely effective, for essentially the most half.
Positive, I’ve moments of taking a look at my hips & butt and pondering, “Whoa. That’s fairly totally different…” however actually, it’s simply the journey. I do know that I create my outcomes.
When I’ve intermittent moments of frustration or disappointment, I calmly remind myself that I’m in management right here. I exploit uncomfortable feeing as a reminder to maneuver a little bit extra that day or dial again the sugar (child nonetheless doesn’t reply nicely to greens and protein).
I don’t wish to be somebody who’s dramatic about my dimension. I wish to use my power & emotion for extra productive issues. These aren’t issues; they’re alternatives for progress & change (actually and figuratively)!
It’s been a very attention-grabbing transition…there’s part of me that’s genuinely excited to have gained a lot weight. It sounds bizarre, even to me, as I kind it. I believe it’s as a result of dropping 100+ kilos was a journey stuffed with a lot delight. It wasn’t with out it’s challenges & frustrations, however I keep in mind being so happy with myself and enthusiastic about the place I used to be going. Whereas weight reduction is not going to be my precedence as quickly as child is born, it doesn’t scare or intimidate me, both. The chance for change is at all times thrilling.
I’ve been pondering lots about who I need my daughter to have as a mom…how I need her to see me. I need her to see and know me as a assured lady who takes impeccable care of herself. I need her to witness what a wholesome physique & thoughts seem like.
That’s one other concept that will get me so excited. It’s not nearly me, how I really feel in my physique or my aesthetic objectives. It’s now about what I get to show for my daughter.
In the meantime, there’s numerous different stuff occurring….
The renovation continues. I anticipate this part might be full in early February so we’ll be hustling to get stuff out of storage and settled earlier than the child arrives. We’re nonetheless residing within the studio condo on our property with most of our stuff packed away. It’s a good squeeze and we’re studying for extra space and the comforts of residence! (I’ve been sharing home progress footage on my Instagram stories in the event you aren’t following me there!)
There hasn’t been a lot intentional motion/train recently, largely as a result of I fell down the steps just a few weeks in the past and injured my again. We monitored child on the hospital after the autumn and he or she was effective, however my again didn’t fare as nicely.
Nonetheless, I simply purchased a treadmill and I’m going to set it up in my workplace. I’m excited to stroll much more, each earlier than & after child.
One among my greatest priorities has been my supply mindset.
It’s staggering how many individuals provide up their horror tales about start and restoration. For that motive, I’m spending numerous time getting my thoughts wholesome, constructive and robust for supply.
I’ve no expectations of the way it will go – I’m not connected to any explicit start plan – however I do wish to really feel as calm and assured as doable going into the expertise.
I’ve been spending 90 minutes every day (that point isn’t simple to search out) going by means of hypnobirthing audios and reviewing affirmations about how sturdy and succesful my physique is. I’m visualizing my response to contractions and the calm method I work with my physique as a substitute of preventing towards it.
I’ve additionally actually stepped up my committment to nutrient density daily. I do know it is a huge a part of my capacity to get well after giving start. I’m militant about my probiotics, getting sufficient protein, taking my omegas and together with greens at each meal.
I don’t have a hospital bag packed, the nursery isn’t accomplished, I do not know what child will put on residence from the hospital and it’ll possible all keep that method. Nonetheless, I do wish to make sure that I’ve some snacks to convey to the hospital!
I promise to maintain you all posted! I’m excited to share our little woman with you when she arrives, in addition to all the small print of her arrival!
