I've been MIA here on my blog for a bit, and I know I said I was going to try to post more often, but in reality, I kinda don't know what to write about anymore! I've kinda stopped with the reviews for now because I was so busy, that I wasn't keeping up. And honestly, I don't feel my readership is what I want it to be, and I don't wanna be one of those bloggers who only do reviews and giveaways. Thats not what I wanted when I started this blog! I started this blog to vent, to have my voice heard, to find other people like ME. So, I am taking it back to basics. No reviews for a while. I want to get you all pulled back into me. I will be the first to say content has not been the best, and I apologize. I got so wrapped up in the hype of giveaways and getting more readers. So, here I am.
One week ago today I found out I am pregnant. I am now 6 weeks pregnant! I am due September 9, 2012, I still have a long way to go. I never thought it would be easy for me to get pregnant after depo, but it only took 5 months of practice, and one month of actually trying LOL. So, this kinda puts a damp into my working out, and goals to loose weight, but I am working out more now than I have before, I want to stay healthy for the baby, and I don't want any complications - high blood pressure or diabetes or anything. I do not want to be on any kind of bed rest, I would not be able to handle that. So, I am working out, eating healthier - with the occasional splurge on pizza or something. No soda (except today I had one 20oz of cherry Pepsi). I've been drinking water, and Gatorade, and ginger ale. Not too much nausea, but a lot of heart burn, something I didn't have with my first one over 7 years ago!
Another thing I want to address is Mamavation. While most of those ladies are great, and have commented in the past, I felt like its a popularity contest. I felt like only the popular mommies got attention and tons of views/comments. I didn't feel like I had the support I needed, and thus I stopped writing blog posts for it. I tried joining convos on Twitter with the hashtag, and still no replies, so I gave up. Why put my self in a situation where I am not wanted? That's how I felt. I couldn't even tell you when the last Mamavation post was -- actually, after looking, it was August 29, 2011. Yup. So, I've thought about it. I think I will try Mamavation again, see how the support goes, and see what happens, and go from there. I will make this my first Mamavation Monday post - even though its on a Saturday night. I've worked out 2 times this week, and plan on working out at least 30 mins every other day. And I workout using Just Dance 2 for Wii, and EA Sports Active for PS3 (every now and then for that last one).
And lastly, my goals for this blog for 2012. To help document my pregnancy, I may post pics, not sure yet. On Feb 9 I have my first ultrasound, so I will post a pic of that! I cannot wait to see my baby! My son and husband is excited, but I think my husband is still kinda shocked haha. I have already created a birth plan (I know, I am ahead of myself lol), and have been refreshing my memory on what happens later on. I have time to kill, so might as well. My son has been watching A Baby Story on TLC with me, he cannot wait, but he doesn't understand 9 months, so this should be interesting, he also keeps saying "Mommy, I hope there's two in there" - and points to my belly! I am like are you kidding me?! If there's twins, I don't even know what I would do. I would loose my mind.
Alright, enough of my blabbing. I am gonna get off here and finish cleaning the living room and then work out a bit.
