Workout results 2/15 - Day 4 of The Mommy to Be Olympic Challenge!

Yesterday was far better for me. My walking was good, not fast but at least I did it!! Today I am aiming for at least 45 mins if not a little more. Our little girl is GROWING! I can tell a huge difference in my belly from last week. She is pressing out more on both sides of my stomach, a feeling I NEVER get tired off! I am getting more sleep as she is less active at night now. There are periods of activity around 2 am or so but for the most part she is letting me sleep! Thank you my angel girl.

I realized this morning that I did not write about our tour of labor and delivery. On Valentines day I had arranged a tour as I thought it would be the most romantic way to spend the day together. After a nice lunch we headed over to the hospital and started our tour. Walking in we realized the next time we would be there was when I would be in labor and we would be getting ready to meet our little girl. The feeling was overwhelming, exciting and emotional. I was very impressed with the private rooms, they were quite nice and the whole unit had a wonderful feel to it. I was happy to see that our little girl would be staying in the room with us. We talked to the nurses about my birthing plan and how I will be wanting a natural birth. They have the birthing balls, rocking chairs, etc.... for me when I need them. They were also VERY understanding and supportive in me wanting a natural birth.

My husband had the biggest smile on his face as we toured the unit and every once and awhile would lean in to me and kiss me saying, Happy Valentines Day! I could not think of a better way to spend this day with the man I love touring where our angel will be born. There were cards and ballons on valentines day but what I will remember most was the look in my husbands eyes as he held me in the hospital, definitely the best gift I could have received.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day!! I have a very busy day planned as I did not get all my housework done yesterday. So I better get going on my walking, cleaning and organizing.

Thanks for all your encouragement and support!

I am so happy to be reading through your pregancy as you experience it with your husband. The love between you two just makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. I was so young when I was pregnant that it is so refreshing to share this with you and read how it really should have been.....

You two guys are so sweet. You must have the last husband in the world so devoted to you. Happy Valentines day and what a special treet for you both to tour the hospital and check out the rooms. I am so happy for you and I am excited about the anticipated arrival of your little angel.
