Well, it is official – today my wife confirmed what she has been suspicious of for nearly two weeks – we are pregnant again. This is our third pregnancy as a couple with one daughter in diapers.
Are you ever really ready for what lies ahead when that announcement comes that you are pregnant. I think back to the first pregnancy which produced our beautiful baby daughter and so much of it seems like yesterday while others – the details – I wonder how we are going to manage it this time around with a little one running around.
Sounds like I am scared. Well I suppose I am a little. I do a lot of stuff around the house and now with my wife not being able to lift anything, it seems like my work load just got heavier. Yikes, good thing I started playing tennis again and trying to get back into better shape. I am going to need my energy and strength.
My wife is nervous too. She is in her early 40’s and has concerns about her health as well as the baby’s health. I personally believe she’ll do just fine as she is healthy and has also committed herself to yoga and healthy living and eating.
For the pregnancy we had with our daughter, we were working out until the day we found out we were pregnant. Once that day came around, our lives were about being pregnant – not working out. And we did not work out. In fact it was almost 2 years until we started doing much physical. This time, we are both excited about staying active and moving and healthy – afterall things are different this time around – it is not about just us being pregnant – it is us being pregnant with a toddler running around.
Speaking about running around – it is time for me to run from this post.
