With less than 8 weeks to go, or so it would seem by my 40 week duration for pregnancy, Bun and I are doing all we can to get ready.
Bun actively performs several strength-training moves like the double foot kick, the karate chop and the head-butt to the bladder. Bun stays in shape this way everyday even while balancing on his/her head! Impressive!
Bun's also both a late-night and early riser. Bun's schedule shows he/she makes the most out of each day.
Meanwhile, I have taken to eating even more pineapple (Bun's favorite) and continuing to indulge in the same amount of cheese, milk and salty things as before. I have now grown a single baby Bun-sized sweet tooth which we indulge with a cake donut with our Starbucks or with lemon gelato!
Now that the weather is nice, long walks are a must-do. By long, I really mean between 2-4 miles. The old feet aren't used to the extra weight so I have to pace myself. My foot doctor always said that I may run into problems during pregnancy when he diagnosed me with plantar fasciitis (flat feet) when I was 26.
Bun and I also have a regular routine of singing in the car on our commute to and from work. Bun loves music!
In a few more weeks, Bun and I will be ready for labor. We just won't have prepped ourselves much for what comes after that.
