Doctor's Appointment and More

We had another doctor's appointment on Wednesday. We got to hear the baby's heartbeat again (only for like 2 seconds, I wish we could hear it a little longer). Doc says everything looks good and next visit we'll have a sonogram where we can find out if it's a boy or girl! I can't wait! We will go on a hospital tour next weekend, too.

John and I found this awesome store called Nurturing Nature and they have a little section for babies and moms. I have fallen in love with this store because everything is eco-friendly, made from recycled things, organic, etc. I'm excited to pick up some of the skin care stuff for stretching bellies etc.

Still feeling stressed from work but trying to ease it with yoga and reading in the evening. It seems to be helping. The breathing and stretching really help relax me and change my focus. I wish I could do it more often, there just doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to do all the things I want to do!

I put puzzles together as a hobby and I was thinking of getting them framed and hanging them in the baby's bedroom. Maybe I'll sew some curtains, too.

Out of Balance

These last few weeks have been particularly hectic, rushed and stressful. Working long hours in combination with feeling tired and overwhelmed has left me feeling out of balance. I hope the next few weeks I can regain balance and catch up on sleep and life.

I have noticed over the last 3 weeks that my belly seems to grow bigger everyday. I am at the end of week 14 right now and am using a rubber band to hold my pants up! I want to relax, breathe and reduce my stress level so I can enjoy being pregnant and preparing for my life to change. At the office I often stop for a moment and picture John and I on a sunny and warm beach with our toes in the sand. That seems to help.
