turning a corner

It's 9pm and I am awake. I ate a salad for the first time since January. I made a cup of tea at home. I think I may have got to the point in the pregnancy when energy comes back and tastes return to somewhat normal. I like it!

I have signed up for prenatal yoga and swimming. I just thought it was time to start getting ready for the marathon of the 3rd trimester and beyond. I am super flabby and fat right now coz I haven't been eating very well and I have done NO exercise. I am not going to diet but I am going to eat super healthy from now on so the mango's get nice, big and healthy. I hope that they come out ready to enjoy our 2 month introductory adventure!!! After all, we have a lot to get through. Learning to eat, sleep, poop, pee, wake up, stare into space while I wonder at the genius of them.
I am not a small gal to start with and my boob.s are now growing to the size of a small country (my ass already has it's own zip code). I need to tone up or I shall just ooze around in the 3rd trimester. I also want to work and be mobile for as long as possible. I like being busy and get depressed when I have to sit around. So, bed rest and me - I hope not!! I figured prenatal yoga and swimming are gentle but toning exercises.

Only three more days till U/S day - well two really coz its sunday night now. I am really excited and of course, paranoid that we will discover something 'bad'. But as I learnt from my wise bloggy friends - allow a moment every day of what if's and the rest of time demand your brain to cease and desist all negative b/s.
I get to see my mango's. Is there anything better in the whole world?? OH and by the way - I totally feel the bubbles now :-)
