My Body Speaks

My body definitely has a voice.  And her voice has grown louder and louder over the last 2 weeks.  The important part?  I listen to her.  Closely.

I watch my feet like a hawk.  Any signs of swelling and I plant my butt in bed or on the couch.  Braxton Hicks?  Same thing.  Some days I wake up and feel completely drained of energy.  On those days, I really try to take it easy and conserve as much energy as I can so that my body can give everything it's got to these babies.  I feel so fortunate that we have had an uneventful pregnancy thus far.  As we near the end of this pregnancy, I feel it is even more important to listen to and take care of this body!  And I am lucky that my lifestyle allows me to drop everything and make taking care of myself a priority.

Each morning, when I wake up, I think, "One more day.  We made it one more day without any issues."  Every day counts!   Those days keep turning into weeks and I know that before too long, we will be in the clear and we can take a nice deep breath and relax! 

In the meantime, I will keep listening to the good 'ol bod!  I trust her.  She's taken care of us thus far!


  1. Hang in there!! You're doing great Mamma! <3 You're a rock star!

  2. I agree with Andrea, you're doing a great job!! Keep lisening to your body and I'm sure those babies will stay nice and comfy for many more weeks to come!
