Full Term and Five Miles

I am not cocky but I am proud. VLAAAAAAWWWWWWGGGGGGGGG…..

Things are going pretty good. I am getting pretty tired these days and have told myself I am not teaching anymore yoga classes this pregnancy. I subbed this week and had stuff on every day then told myself I would take Friday off – but went to an all day Reproductive Health Justice symposium where my midwife was on panel along with other midwives, doulas, and birth justice advocates I consider friends. It was good but I was really wiped after that. On Saturday I had planned to walk a 5K but a blizzard rolled into town and I took that as a sign from the universe to chill the eff out – and I am so glad I did.

This week I start acupuncture to get ready to evict this tenant living inside me, plan to meet up with friends for a happy hour, have a midwife visit and tour the kids’ new pediatrician practice. I am really trying to coast at this point. I will walk when my body feels up for it, I will clean and baby prep, I will do my best to enjoy these last days before a newborn joins our family.

This is actually quite a crazy week. My husband done up and quit his job he loved for an amazing opportunity with another company and starts that new gig tomorrow. Starting a new gig in a senior position while we are poised any day to welcome a new life in our home… literally in our home with a home birth. Cross your fingers that the baby holds off for another week (only because our doula is in Israel right now).

Anyway friends I am babbling now. Life is good. I hope good things are coalescing in your worlds as they are for me in mine. I mentioned Ignite Fitness – submissions close on the 14th. You still have time to submit to speak and earn a full conference pass to Fitbloggin – if you have any questions then email me at bodhibearinfo/gmail.

      LOL Rebecca! Didn’t you catch the part in my vlog where I admit I do not like being pregnant? I really try not to whine about it since it is a choice I willingly went into again.

  2. “evict the tenant” hahahahaha
    I remember wanting so badly to have my body back.
    You’re in the final stretch; hang in there!

  3. I loved my homebirth. I used a chiropractor to try and evict mine – good luck and congratulations on your husband’s new job!

      You know how it goes Jenny. I have acupuncturist, chiropractor, and massage peeps lined up just in case my body needs a little nudge. Thanks for the encouragement.

  4. You are SUCH a badass. Rock on, woman.

    And hooray for being in the final stretch before meeting baby!

  5. Oh my goodness…a brand new baby and brand new job at the same time?! Good luck with everything, and keep on coasting, Kia!

      Yep, the opportunity he is starting is amazing but the timing is the worst possible ever. I have been trying not to dwell on it but have not been the happiest of campers regarding everything.
