June Dreams & Goals.

June 5, 2012 in dreams

The last few months my one and only goal was to survive and be healthy. But now that it’s June, and I’m well into my second trimester {almost the third!}, I’m feeling more like myself. I’m definitely not feeling 100% pre-pregnancy, but I’m feeling like a human again. Which is nice.

These next couple months will be heavy on checking things off of our to-do lists. I know that there is lots to be done before October 9th {and that October will be here before I know it}.

Reflections of May:

  • Had a very relaxing birthday celebration for the mister. We went to dinner {he decided on a place that I have been having some cravings for — isn’t he just the sweetest!?} and spent the night at home relaxing.
  • Celebrated our first month of marriage. And decided that other than it being “official” now, not much had changed. Which is great. I loved our life together before. It’s just now that I’m his wife 🙂
  • I spent a good deal of time crafting wedding related projects.
  • My name has officially been changed to Mrs. Rachel L! I  changed my name with the social security administration and my drivers license! I’m so excited to {finally} be Mrs. L! 🙂
  • We had 3 doctors appointments with our OB! The first was because of some pain, so it was unplanned. But the pain was deemed normal and we were sent on our way! The second was our scheduled 20-week appointment; and the third was our ultrasound.
  • I found a yoga class that really works with my body during this pregnancy. Unfortunately, I’ll have a scheduling conflict with it for the next few months.
  • Swimming at our gym became my new go-to exercise. It’s easy on my hips and joints, and also gets in some much needed exercise.
  • Family time. We spent a lot of time with family: his family, my sister, just the two of us {and pups}. It was lovely.
  • Finished planning our post-elopement reception. Parts of this have been fun; but honestly, I could not be more happy that our reception is very laid back.
  • Started our Bradley Method Birthing classes! Only 11 weeks of classes to go!

June Dreams & Goals:

  • Stay active. Go to yoga. Go for a regular swim.
  • Celebrate the end of my second trimester and beginning of the third!
  • Finish at least 2 or 3 pregnancy books. I kind of slacked on this last month.
  • Stay focused on housework during the weeks. There’s just too much to do on the weekends to have to waste time catching up from the work week.

That’s it. I’m keeping it simple for June. 🙂

I’m amazed at how quickly time is flying by!!! You’re right, October will be here before you know it. I’m so excited to have time this summer to celebrate your marriage and the baby!! Such a fabulous summer ahead 🙂

I have heard that the book “What to Expect when you’re Expecting” isn’t that great of a book to read, esp if you’ re having your first kid. I’ve heard it kind of scares parents. I’ve never been pregnant so I haven’t read it but just passing it along.

I do have to say, however, I do want to see the movie! 🙂

I’m trying to start doing housework during the week as well. I’d rather spend my weekends doing other things like going out on our boat or spending time with family.
