We all know that the lovely Skinny Meg had her beautiful baby boy, Aiden on Wednesday.
Babies, a true miracle. For me though, they scare me, and for selfish reasons at that.
Like most woman, I can't wait to have kids and when I do, I want it to be planned and go perfectly, or as close to perfect as I can get. What really scares me, the selfish reasons, are I've lost all this weight, and then a baby is going to reverse it all. For the longest time that is how I looked at it. But as I've watched Megan get pregnant, workout and have this amazingly healthy pregnancy. It has relieved so many of my fears.
It isn't going to wreck my body. My body is awesome, it was made to be a baby factory, it was made to bounce back and bounce back it will. I can still workout while I'm pregnant, I can still eat healthy, and I can keep my lifestyle. I find myself struck with baby fever. So many people ( in real life and on the Internet) that I know are having babies or about too. But the hubs and I made a plan.
We sat down and had a talk once about when we want to have kids and what life goals we want to hit before bringing a life into this world. We decided that we wanted to be fully ready to dedicate our life to the child not just throw it into the mix. We are starting to get closer to the goals and when we want to have kids. I personally want to just be in shape, in hopes that will help me bounce back afterwards. Like most adults I want to be financially stable also.
I know it sounds selfish about the being in shape business, but I really want it for my future with my kids. I want to be the mom that's out running around and playing, not that mom that has to sit on the sidelines. I want to be involved in their activeness, and show them how to have a healthy lifestyle so that they never have to go through the teasing and emotional stress I had to because of my weight. The more I think of it, the more I realize that maybe it really isn't that selfish. I mean, if I'm healthy, I (hopefully) won't have a high risk pregnancy, I'll be able to heal faster, and hopefully the baby won't have any health issues if I'm treating its growing home right.
Does anyone else have these fears?
It's still cool and rainy up in Kansas. BOOO! So the hubs and I will probably just go out to dinner and then walk around Wal Mart to kill time and walk.
Do you ever just walk around a store to get in some walking?
But we have a mini Dr Who Marathon on Netflix that is calling our name right now, so I better get in there before the Tardis leaves me behind.
What are your weekend plans?
