I REALLY need to....

Just for fun.. what's something you need to do, now that you're pregnant or just in general...

For example, I reallllllly need to start drinking more water!!

And.... I really need to pack up old clothes- clothes that are already too small to wear now, so I definately wont be wearing them in the next year! haha

What do you need to do???

I really need to do better with relaxing in the afternoons while my kids are napping!

There are more things that I need to NOT do....like looking at cloth diapers online and all the cute new swaddlebees prints....must wait for gender!

I really need to eat better now and Dh really needs to get on redoing the kitchen so it's done.

I really need to stop looking at pinterest and all the cute baby nurseries

EXERCISE!

I've been so incredibly exhausted that I can barely get through the day with my eyes open, much less have the motivation to work out, but I gotta. I know it'll make me feel better and help with my exhaustion. Just kind of a difficult pattern to get out of (especially with no caffeine)!

Its such a hard cycle, I know where your coming from. 1/2 the time i'm sitting on the couch with DH tired as heck and in my head i'm thinking I should go get on the treadmill but my body just doesn't want to get up Smile

To be completely honest, I haven't even been keeping up with the housework, which is a rarity for my OCD self. I should probably do that before I consider working out.

Although I've come up with a pretty solid excuse - the baby didn't want to.
As in "I thought you were going to volunteer to manage the school bake sale?"
"Yeah, but the baby didn't want to."

Wasn't even my choice really you see - he/she is calling the shots these days!

"Little Mitchell" as I call it- has a lot of demands... Today for example, I needed Kevin to go get salad from the store and he didnt want to.. "LITTLE MITCHELL WANTS SALAD. NOW!!!!". hahah

I really need to focus on school and stop daydreaming about babies!!!

I really neeed to drink more water as well! For some reason my nausea worsens whenever I do more than take a small sip.

I also really need to get a good nights sleep!

I really need to start taking my prenatals again. My ms was so bad that I couldn't choke them down without actually choking, but now that the meds are making me feel a bit better I need to get back into the habit of taking them.

I had these big plans to get laser hair removal on my legs, bikini area, and pits this spring and then get pregnant in the late summer so I wouldn't have to shave in pregnancy, but then I got baby fever and that plan went out the window! Biggrin

I need to try to go to bed earlier, even if my mind is racing. It's too bad I can't have a glass of wine to relax!

Amber- have you tried taking befored bed?? Thats the only time I can stomach them.

Maybe that's why I dont feel so sick this time around (I was so sick with DS, but it was right after I took my prenatels and i took them in the morning with him.

Amen to going to bed earlier.. Im exhausted yet cant go to bed!

I need to figure out how we're going to turn an area of our unfinished basement into a play space since our toy room will be turned into the nursery.

I also need to start cooking dinner again. I've been so tired we've been ordering out more than usual and it's hard to find healthy, baby friendly food to order out.

I really need to get back to eating healthy and working out. Since finding out I was pregnant I'm constantly hungry. I was on a 1200 calorie diet before getting preggo but I'm not keeping track anymore and I know I'm eating well over 1500cal now. Also I've only worked out twice since my BFP. Both times I've gotten light headed and nauseous so I haven't done it since then. Plus I've been ?ber tired to get my but to the gym.

Sounds like me- I upped my calorie counter to even say 1500 so I would stop feeling bad about going over- unfortunately I still keep going over that. eek
