Third Trimester

100 Promises to My Baby

When I found out that I was pregnant several years ago, it was one of the happiest and most exciting moments of my life. I was awed by the fact that I had a living being growing inside of me. I spent hours visualizing what my baby would look like, talking and singing to her, caressing her, and beginning to plan for our new family.

Dear Fitness Expert,
My name is Lili and about six years ago you interviewed me for your book, Entering the Mother Zone. I was one of the "less famous" mothers that was working out with Dr. Barbara Bergman in Columbus, OH. I enjoyed your book very much and referred to it often.

I just wanted to give you an update and let you know that after several years collecting dust under a bed, I have finally pulled your book out again for motivation. After the "textbook" pregnancy you wrote about in the book, I had six more pregnancies -- all ending in miscarriage.
