Yep, things are getting pretty snug around here. This is probably the last time I’ll be able to wear that particular top since it isn’t stretchy. I broke out my belly band to help prolong the life of my jeans since I get sick of wearing leggings every single day. My maternity wardrobe consists of super cute tops and tunics but wah-wah lame black leggings. Getting dressed is a chore and can be kind of depressing. I know that, thanks to my belly, I look adorable but damn if it isn’t a challenge to find something that fits my bottom half.
I attended my first prenatal yoga class yesterday. I really enjoyed it since the class size was small and the instructor was warm and very welcoming. She came up to me, introduced herself, and asked me a few questions to get to know me a little bit. She seemed like she spent time chatting it up with her students. I am not used to that since I went to a franchise yoga studio before and while the instructors were nice they certainly didn’t seem invested in their students beyond the occasional posture adjustment. I signed up for a four-class package and once that’s up I will probably go to a regular, non-prenatal class that is a little more convenient to get to- the studio is a forty-minute drive and while it was nice to get some “me time” I don’t feel like I need it on a Saturday morning. I am hoping to find a gentle class at a studio in between my office and Avery’s sitter’s house so I can attend after work but before I pick her up. I need yoga during the week, and I’m more likely to attend if I don’t have to go out of my way to get there. I’m a lazy yogi, I guess.
My Hypnobabies study course is going smoothly, of course. I fall asleep about half of the time but according to the program that’s totally okay and normal. Explaining it to people has been hilarious because of the stigma and ignorance associated with hypnosis. It isn’t my mission to convince others that self-hypnosis isn’t wacky or stupid so I don’t even try. I just change the subject or laugh along with their misguided comments.
I’m feeling great and trying to eat as healthy as I can while still satisfying my current addiction to sandwiches.
