Oh my days.
I can’t quite believe we are doing this again, but we are. Pregnant for the THIRD time.
It’s all feeling quite real now as there is a definite bump and lots of baby movements.
I’m filled with a lot of excitement as I LOVE being a mummy, having the chance to nurture, feed and look after a baby again is totally amazing. With my boy I kept having sad moments of “What if this is the last time I get to do this”. Well it wasn’t 😉
However also the apprehension of how will it be having 3 small people to chase? I know I won’t have enough hands to hold theirs all at once. How long will it take to get out of the house? How many bags of snacks, clothes, nappies, toys and random items will I have to carry with me? How on earth will my poor body fare?
After baby 1 I definitely bounced back pretty quickly.
Baby 2 I had diastasis Recti, just a small one but it took 6 months to heal. I went back to normal life too quickly and didn’t spend long enough thinking about myself, my posture and fixing me.
Baby 3 I know my former abdominal separation has softened up already and I am now teaching more classes than I was before but will also have to be extra careful with myself.
Good Nutrition, hydration, sensible exercise and some rest are my plans for the next few months.
So here is my thought for you….
What do you need to do to look after you this week, this month, this year? If you don’t look after you then no-one else will.
