21 weeks along

Not a lot has been happening with me, health wise. I'm well into my 2nd trimester now, and have gotten a tiny bit of energy back, but I'm not feeling anywhere close to my normal energy level. I got a prenatal workout DVD. It has a cardio session and a yoga session on it. I tried the cardio session, and it was a great level of intensity for me. It was only a 20 minute workout, so it wasn't too long either. However, the day after I did that, I could barely move because I was so fatigued. I've decided to give up focusing on exercise until well after the baby is born. If I'm feeling sprightly, I'll go for it, but if not I won't worry about it. For now I'll focus on eating better. I don't get anywhere near enough fruits and veggies each day, so that's something I've been trying to improve on.

We found out several weeks ago that we're having a boy. After 3 girls, this will be something new and different. I just started feeling him kick this past week, and I this morning I could even feel it with my hand! I'm thankful to feel him move at all. I thought I had been, but couldn't tell if what I was feeling was food digesting or baby dancing around. I'm glad to know he's having fun in there :-) It makes me feel more connected to him when he reminds me of his presence.

    I am beyond happy for you , a new little life, a gift from God. What a wonderful blessing!! Your daughters will have a good time "helping"! The best exercise is getting lots of walking in. I know that was what I did many, many years ago and made for an easier delivery too. Keep us informed!
