Yesterday I looked at David, pointed at my belly and said, Do I look fat?
We heard the baby’s heartbeat today and it was amazing! For only being an inch big, the heartbeat sounded loud, healthy and fast. My new baby bump coupled with the baby’s heartbeat has made today become the first day I really felt pregnant again.
While I don’t get morning sickness, cravings or nausea, I do get really fatigued during my first trimester of pregnancy. Now that I’m entering my second trimester, I’m relieved as my daily schedule has changed. I try to get to bed by 10:00pm every night so I can wake up at 5:07am to get to the gym then attend the 7:00am Tri-Falcons 4 Fitness program
As I was training on the cardio machine early this morning I kept thinking, I hope I can get back in time to watch Christian wake up. To me, that’s the best part of my day: watching him slowly open his eyes, yawn, stare, ecstatically smile and jump all over me. I love starting a new day with my little son.
There I was…at 5:45am, sweating on the stairmaster…thinking about how fast life moves and how fleeting our life moments quickly pass. One day I’m enjoying mornings with my son, the next week I’m working and can only come home when he’s finished breakfast…
It’s humbling to remind yourself that each moment is impermanent and that life is in constant movement
It’s humbling to be grateful of days passed, hopeful of days to come and
Times in our lives are moments never to be returned. We will get older…our lives will change…and one day the shadow of our death will eclipse the beauty of our youth.
Cherish life now.
