So, the thing that frightened me most was the fact that I felt as if I could not do anything to protect my child. My new challenge to myself is I am going to take as good of care as I can of myself to keep my body healthy.
I am making sure I eat my fruits and veggies even if I dont like them. It is fun to cut em up and I even buy the pretty ones to make it better. Red and orange peppers instead of green. Adding carrots to my salad. A veggie tray with dip! Salads at lunch even if I have to add bacon bits and cheese lol. Eating lots of fruit! Grapefruit and watermelong and bananas and apples. It is fun to know I am doing what I can. I still walk on my lunch break but if I am exhausted at night I choose that little extra rest instead of going to they gym. They say the tiredness goes away in a few weeks so I dont want to overdo it. I know I need rest too and that is something i got very little of before. (And I am not forgetting my vitamins!)
Now I feel like I am doing something good instead of waiting for something to happen...
