Yesterday, I attended a healing & health yoga workshop with a group of wonderful women to celebrate our fabulous friend’s runaway marriage in Mexico and subsequent pregnancy.  She is only a couple weeks behind me so we get to share the pregnancy experience together. The class was two and a half hours of relaxing yoga poses, meditation, visualization and Reiki healing. Towards the end, the teacher had everyone send out positive energy towards the two unborn babies in the room, which was so special. Feeling centered and relaxed, we followed the workshop with a picnic in a beautiful nearby park with a Koi pond, turtles and ducks. The food was amazing.  We had wraps, fruit salad, cheeses, roasted garlic, French bread, green papaya salad and lots of yummy desserts. It was a perfect afternoon!

Today was our 8 week ultrasound and the baby is growing beautifully. It measured 17 mm and I heard the heart beat for the first time; it is such a comforting sound. I am staying on my current dosages of progesterone and delestrogen for now, probably up until ten weeks. Eating snacks throughout the day has helped with the queasiness – I have fruit leather and mini packs of almonds, cranberries, and cashews in my purse at all times. I am so excited that summer is on its way with all the delicious fruits and veggies that come with it!

    Leslie, I’m soooo excited for berries!!! I’m also doing yoga, wish I could afford more than once a week because I love it, but I’m not much of a self motivator, so I stick with the classes. Glad to hear you’re fending off the quesies… I’ve never been much of a breakfast person in the first place which made it hard for me to force myself to eat something (knowing it would make me feel better…) the first time I ate a full piece of toast I was so proud of myself… and then promptly threw it up 😦 Anyway, eating like a horse now, glad that phase is over. I think about you lots and am sending love your way! XO, S
