Why is it so hard to drink 8 glasses of water a day. In all seriousness, why?? I've had to restart every few days in my mini challenge of managing it for two weeks because frequently go the whole day without drinking each other and don't notice. ARGH. I think it doesn't help that I've also been bad with eating three proper meals a day etc...

So generally I suck all around. I guess it's probably because I felt so pregnant last time and wasn't that this time I'm determinedly being a bit rubbish and not reading into anything, although I have still been taking my folic acid everyday so... not so bad. I definately need to turn my eating and drinking around though, just in case.

Delegated organizing looking round some houses in a few weeks to my boy so I can get on with the last three weeks of my degree and have an appointment to see one already, which is awesome. Gotta prep up some survey sheets to fill in as we go around though, to try and tame my rampant nice house love.

Firstly, an apology. I know I haven't been around at all much. My life is completely and utterly chock-a-block crazy. I shall make more of an effort though!

Secondly, since it's the beginning of the month... what are your March aims? Tell us and maybe we can help spur you into completing them! Setting yourself small, realistic goals is a great way to make progress towards your higher aims. Be practicable and set yourself a target to reach by the end of the month!

Go go! Possible shiny banners for anyone who sets themselves a target and completes it by 31st March!

Nurses and visits. [Feb. 19th, 2008|01:14 pm]

So... not this time. However, figured I really needed to go to the doctor's anyway for my pre-conception appointment so toodled off on Friday to do it. I have a rash on my leg that won't go away as well so it was an extra excuse to go. It was actually a really positive visit. I get really stressed about going to the doctors (not my thing) and I was particularly anxious about this appointment because I didn't like the idea of having some doctor breathing down my neck telling me I'm too young. But actually, given that I'm not a teenager, and I'm in a long term relationship the nurse seemed ecstatic that I wanted a baby so young! We had a bit of a chat about cheap places to buy baby things, and all of the things I'm not supposed to be eating. As well as giving me my prescription for folic acid. She also told me that my medical care including prescriptions will be free from the moment I find out I'm pregnant until the baby is a year old which I didn't know.

On the food front there is a helluva lot of stuff you are not supposed to eat. It's mildly ridiculous. No-drinky, no-smoky, healthy diet was expected but I can't eat brie?? I LOVE brie. I half live off the stuff. The reason I'm not supposed to have Brie and other unpasturised milk products is because of a risk of catching Listeria, a really damaging infection. I do see the point but at the same time, since that's a 'risk' category versus an explicitly bad for you category I will do my best to cut down, but I am not going to totally stop. (same with nuts)

I also took the weekend off work and went to see a friend of mine's baby. She's very young, and I didn't find out about it until she was six months gone (long after S and I had decided we wanted kids of our own and had started talking about timing) I told her we'd 'officially' started trying, and she was very excited. It was actually really nice to spend half a day with a young person with a month old baby, and just talk in practical terms about what it had been like to be pregnant and what it was like now to have a baby. I've actually never really spent time with any newborn babies before (increasingly few women have before they have kids) so it was a bit of an eye-opener in terms of how much attention he required  and it was fun to get a chance to feed him and soothe him before I have me own. It certainly hasn't put me off though, especially given how gorgeous and cute he is. All the fussing was worth seeing him smile. Most definately.

Okay, I'm changing my goal to blog about to include all the sports I do - not only running but also rock-climbing, squash and yoga. It might make my entries a little more interesting for you all to read XDD.

I had one of those runs today where everything went wrong. My iPod headphones kept falling out for some reason, I ran through a very muddy patch, it was colder than I expected and I got a horrible recurrent stitch. Hopefully this means that next time I go out everything will be perfect!

It's odd that I find running without music so much harder. I think it's because when I start to feel tired I really force myself to focus hard on the music. I really put all my effort into listening to the music and how it makes me feel - and I always listen to my 'happy music' when I'm running. Happy music isn't necessary what you'd expect to work out to - I have some Mozart on there! It's just whatever has that power to make me smile and feel good about myself. It's amazing how far a little positive thinking can get me!

THE APPLICATION

I will reply and either accept you, reject you or tell you some improvements that must be made before you can join. Once accepted, you can request to join and once approved may start blogging as soon as you like!

Please bear in mind that some goals are much easier to write about. Desiring to find your soulmate is all very commendable, I'm sure, but unless you are actively searching then it won't be terribly interesting for the rest of us. On the other-hand, aspiring towards winning an award for photography could be wonderful, especially with some of your photos posted along with your written entries. Just something to bear in mind, hmm?
