As I write this, I’m at 15 weeks and 4 days. I’m starting to talk to the baby because apparently it should be hearing something by now. I’m singing in the car too and I’m hoping it likes my voice. Some moms-to-be are starting to feel kicks already. I was eager to feel the kicks too. So, I tried to lay still for 10 minutes straight and concentrate on any kicks . Then, suddenly, two jabs on the left side. Wow! Were those kicks? No. I had to fart. Nevermind.
1st TRIMESTER OBSTACLES
I have to say that the toughest part of teaching aerobics and dance throughout pregnancy is not the fatigue but rather trying my best not to embarrass myself by passing gas in class. I’ve stopped doing sit ups in class not because it’s uncomfortable but because you run the high risk of letting one loose!
The effort not to pass gas is twice as difficult in my ballet class. With the tights, leotards and correct posture, I have never worked my butt muscles and pelvic floor so hard in my life.
2ND TRIMESTER – LOVING IT
Luckily, I am starting to understand why everyone’s favourite trimester is the second: You start to feel normal again. No more nausea and indigestion for me. That also means less gas.
There are a few things that I really love about this 2nd trimester:
- My energy is up
- My boobs are looking fabulous
I have always been small-chested and to be honest, I really am happy with the way that I am built. But, I just want to raise a toast to the fact that my boobs can touch each other now without the aid of my hyperextended arms! I’ve always felt like a lady but now I feel like a WOMAN! I am thoroughly enjoying my natural boob job that I spend a little too much extra time in front of the mirror after the shower. Thank you and cheers, baby.
