a little something.

pssst. hey. guess what? I have a little 5  1/2 month secret I have to share with you. :) I’m due mid-July. It’s been quite the last 12 months! Last February I got engaged, then we got married, I started a radio show and got preggers. Holy lucky! I have to say, the gratitude flows and brings ploppy tears to my normally not-so-emotional pitta eyes.

These were taken at 13 weeks. First of all, it has a butterfly friend in there with it and second, it knows how to peek back at us already! What a funny kid! Anyway, I wanted to let you know what’s going on. I’m gathering lots of Ayurvedic pregnancy information and learning a lot through this process.

It’s fun so far! I have not felt sick unless I don’t eat, but that’s easy enough to fix. I’ve been eating yummy oatmeal in the morning, doing my regular yoga practice (including shoulder stand, baby likes to go upsidedown…whee!) and ballet-inspired workouts. I still walk the dogs twice a day, have a full time jobby job, a radio show and the blog. And so far so good! My blog posts have been a little slim lately so I want to get back with those. Because I soooo miss you!

BUT I’m thankful for the radio show as a nice vehicle to spread Ayurvedic knowledge and tips. If you have not listened yet, I encourage you to do so or check out the archives! They are FULL of information.

Hope you are having a great weekend!! :) Namasté. x.

OH YAH! And, it’s nickname is “butterhead.” Because I said I was going to slather ghee “down there” during delivery to make it extra slippery so baby could just slide right out (do not try that!! It was a joke!). We will find out the gender on Tuesday March 1. Unless it’s still being a little jokester and crosses its legs or something.

    Congratulations – I think it would be pretty cool to have YOU for a Mom, Monica! Can you imagine what it might be like having parents that can help you keep your dosha balanced right from the beginning? S/he’ll be a lucky kid…

    Congratulations!!!! How very exciting!
    I couldn’t find too much ayurvedic pregnancy info when I was preg a last year. Pass it along if you find anything good – a friend of mine is preg now as well and interested.
    Oh – if you are thinking about a natural birth, I have loads of info on that! You can email me about it.
