Week 8 : Changes

Week 8 : Changes

Apart from the bewilderment of choosing an Obstetrician, there are the changes in my body! When I first found out I was with baby, I was feeling fairly ‘blah’ with my body.  Even as much as I was making a concerted effort to choose healthy options, it didn’t seem to make a difference.  That is, until I found out that I was with baby.  It made a lot more sense. For us women, the thing most of us are concerned with is our physical appearance.  Especially being a yoga teacher, I felt I ‘had to’ look the part.  I think for the most part, I was, but now being with baby, there’s no way to move the ‘fat’ feeling, as my body begins to get ready to board...

Week 7 : Deliver Me?

Week 7 : Deliver Me?

I visited a couple of Obstetricians. The first visit provided me with a deflated sense again.  He appeared to be a capable Obstetrician, though I thought he was a bit ‘old fashioned’. ‘No sex’, he said with a boyish smirk, ‘in the first trimester … in case you bleed, then you would feel guilty!’; I can only walk on a treadmill, and only on any other equipment / exercise I won’t fall of! I could fall walking down the street, particularly the shape of the pathways in Hong Kong!  Also, he kept stressing several times in my 10 minute visit that I had to select my hospital ASAP … but did he help to explain what my choices were...

Week 6 : Do Not …

Week 6 : Do Not …

Overwhelmed. I started reading websites and forums on what TO DO when pregnant.  All I read was what NOT TO DO. Don’t eat chocolate. (Telling a woman not to eat chocolate?!!!) Don’t drink coffee. (A regular necessity.) Exercise only lightly (i.e., walking).  (From boxing, circuit training, swimming, yoga that I do weekly, and do some form of exercise daily!) Don’t drink fresh juice. (I LOVE freshly squeezed juices!) Don’t eat salads.  (My staple summer food!) Don’t drink tea. (A regular necessity.) … And there are even MORE specific drinks / foods / things NOT TO DO!  This is on top of the ‘usual’ NO NOs that I’ve heard about and am aware of from...

Week 5 : The Test

Week 5 : The Test

What a week! I just found out I’m pregnant. I thought I was just putting on weight! I’ve been feeling bloated for the last month, and as I’d just spent a week at home with my family, I thought it was a result of overindulging! Emotionally, I’d also been feeling off, though I put it to other things. Not in any way did I think I’d be pregnant! The reason I found out was that my period was overdue a week. Anytime my period is overdue a week, I do a pregnancy test, just to be sure. I didn’t think much of it and had also ‘checked in’ with myself ‘asking’ if I was pregnant, and the answer was a clear ‘no’! Well, was I wrong!
