Yoga and a Haircut

Things here have been good. My sciatica has started getting worse again so tomorrow I have a chiropractor appointment and then I have two massage sessions booked over the next two weeks. I'm hoping it's a quick fix:) Sometimes it's fine and sometimes I can't even walk. It feels like a horse kicked my left buttock:( Have I ever told you how much I dislike spending money on things like this?!

I went to aquafit on my own yesterday and I have to say I now love it. It took 4 times but it is seriously the best exercise for me (especially with my sciatic nerve). Today, as soon as Gary got home, I went and got my hair cut at the spa (aren't I fancy? Yay for mastercard points!) and then went to my first prenatal yoga class. It was good and definitely interesting doing some of the positions with my belly. I am not flexible and I'm not good at just thinking about my breathing but it was good. I think it will definitely help with strengthening and flexibility. Although I'm due in about the middle of everyone, I think I have the biggest belly. When I got home, Kai gave me one of his apple slices for `all my hard work':)

We might be able to find out the gender tomorrow. The ultrasound location we went to is very strict on not releasing it until 21 weeks so it depends when they think I'm 21 weeks. If we do get it tomorrow (written down in an envelope), we would do the reveal on Saturday. I'm very nervous as this will sort of determine our family. Will we be a `boy family' that is just 100% into sports, wrestling, farting and talking about male genitilia? Yikes. I love my boys and I think I am a pretty good momma of sons but ya, you know. If you are a momma of all boys, I think you know where I'm coming from. You wouldn't trade them for anything but a mother/daughter relationship is pretty special and seriously, girl clothes? ADORABLE!!!

Anyway, better hang out with my husband now as he's actually home:)
Love, Louise
PS Pictures of haircut to come...I should've taken a photo when I got home but alas, I will have to figure out how to do it myself:)
PPS Apparently I'm measuring small (ha ha, right...according to the ultrasound) so gender will be released NEXT week. I absolutely know their dates are wrong if they think baby was conceived a week later but oh well:)


  1. Ahhh I'm so excited to find out what you are having!!!

  2. are you going to share with the class or keep it a secret? :)
