I had a lovely practice yesterday morning… just full primary, but it was the perfect balance of soft and energizing. Now that I’m headed into my third trimester, I’m feeling the pressure to “up the intensity” just a bit. Must keep the stamina and strength up for Baby A’s big debut. So a balance between the Ashtanga and the softer PreNatal stuff is just perfect for me right now. I do have to admit that I get a little frustrated with the primary series. The belly gets in the way of 90 percent of the poses, but when I do find a spot for the belly (like in Janu Sirsasana where I can snuggle the belly against the outstretched leg and get my chin to my shin), I can find the most blissful comfort in the familiarity of the postures. Then again, in Halasana, I feel like I’m going to suffocate. I can definitely feel the extra 14 pounds I’ve gained so far in my chaturangas and in sirsasana. It’s hard to hold all that extra weight!
I’m starting to feel a little overwhelmed with all the “stuff” that goes along with the baby. How it’s going to fit, where it’s going to go, I just want to set everything up and be “ready”. I registered for my shower, but I have these silly concerns that I’ll get a bunch of cute stuff and no cloth diapers. Of course, I am so thankful for any and every gift or thought, no matter how useful or frivolous…Yesterday my mom brought me the cutest little long-sleeve froggy shirt… I love it. It’s hard to imagine anything tiny enough to fit in it!
Tay seems on the fence about the whole cloth diapering thing. He knows it’s the right thing to do both economically and environmentally, but he’s certainly not excited about it. I just take one look at those little fuzzi bunz and I think they are the cutest things ever!! I’ve been doing my research, and I think I’m ready for the challenge.
