Ed’s been bugging me to start writing a blog for the baby and I’ve resisted for three months, only because I haven’t had many positive things to say about the first three months of pregnancy. Now that the end of the first trimester is in sight, I’m feeling better about putting my thoughts online.
We went to my 12 week doctor’s appointment yesterday and everything is going well. The doctor did say I need avoid certain activities for a couple weeks. Her examples were running and biking (I didn’t mention that I biked to work not too long ago and not running is going to send me over the edge.) But, she did grant me the permission to walk. Good thing since I didn’t wheel my way into the doctor’s office!
I’ve been trying to follow the doctor’s orders and “take it easy”, but instead I’ve found myself completely bored and this is only the second day! Any ideas of relaxing activities that last more than 15 minutes? I have found an outdoor pool nearby where I can swim laps. If the doctor asks, I don’t know how to swim. That way she won’t tell me not to swim.
