When I thought I was pregnant, one thing that concerned me was the realization that s/he will be born in March. My worries were work based - giving birth a month later would probably be O.K due to the Pesach holiday, then after that there's the summer holiday [in any case I'll be skipping August's insemination, so as not to give birth in May. If I can help it, I don't want my child and I (especially if she's a girl) to have birthdays too close together], and then there's the beginning of the year with all the holidays. So in a way I'm a bit relieved - I won't be giving birth in March.
Another positive point is that I would like to loose a bit of weight and start doing some sports. Once I'm pregnant I obviously won't be able to, should do only sports that I'm used to, and of course will be eating for two. But this is probably just a positive point for the paper since it is too hot for any sports..
On the reverse side of the previous clause, I can now have all the sushi; coffee; wine; beer; cigarettes I want! Hurray !!
So what if I hate sushi, don't like coffee, don't really drink alcohol, and.. cigarettes - please, no where near me! So what! This is a positive post, and as I'm not pregnant, should I wish to do any of the above - I sure could!
On a more serious note there's the folic acid and the prenatal tablets I am taking. I've been taking the folic acid for almost a year, but unrealizing there are different kinds, for most of this period I took the 0.4 mg. tablets, and only started on the 5 mg. a couple of months ago. Prenatal tablets I started taking very recently, around the time of the last insemination. These nutritional supplements are part of my efforts to prepare myself as best as I possibly could. So here I gained another month of preparation!
And finally, I am greatly relieved to have "managed" to put off those terrible labour pains by at least another month..
