My last pregnancy related post was at about 16 weeks so I am way behind on my goal to write regular posts but I am back…….25 weeks now and feeling great. Over the past 9 weeks, I have found my energy increasing-even with my current workload and wearing several hats in a day- businesswoman, mother, wife, mentor, motivator……the list goes on.
I have continued to exercise and that is keeping me feeling strong and fit and able to cope with lifes daily demands. I also ensure that I rest as much as I can when my body needs it. I was finding getting a good nights sleep was a challenge so I have made some modifications to my bedtime routine; I get to bed earlier and try to have a nice relaxing bath with my son before bed. I am not drinking herbal tea or water as late at night which has resulted in less night waking for the toilet.
I have started to ‘cull’ and organise…..It makes me feel great having less clutter……never underestimate the clarity of mind that these simple things produce! I’ve also thought long and hard about how to make everything work next year-juggling work, kinder for Cooper and our new little person. I feel comfortable about the decisions we are moving forward with to create less stress on our family.
In a weeks time we are heading off on a family break- our last as a family of 3. I am so looking forward to warmth on my skin and the delight of relaxing with my 2 boys and our little bump.It’s so important to have regular breaks and something to look forward to-such an important part of life for me and my family.
Until next time….
