19 days until we start our bi-weekly doctor appointments, 43 days until our baby shower, and 90 days until our official due date. The reality is setting in and I’m pulling out all the stops with my mommy goal list.
Want to see how real it is?
That’s our girl. Wiggling and making her presence known each and every day. She’s a show-off and we love her for it already. There are times when the doctors say she’s a little stubborn because she would much rather keep her legs by her head. We laugh because she is definitely moving to the beat of her own drum. That drum just happens to be my uterus these days. With her arrival creeping closer and closer each day, I’ve compiled a list of 3 mommy goals that I want to accomplish over the next few weeks. Of course, this is in addition to all the things we already have in the works.
These goals are specifically catered to my well being. Especially since I’ve been so consumed by the daunting to-do list that I have for her arrival, I quickly took note that I need my own time.
Mommy Goal #1, Be active 2x per week
Even as the third trimester lingers into sight, my doctor hasn’t told me to stop working out. What’s even better is that neither has my body! Don’t get me wrong, modifications are happening. I’m not lifting heavy weights or going as frequently as I use to go, but I am still going.
For the next 90 days, I have plans to be active at least two times a week. It’s either Kaia or with the Texas weather getting better taking a nice long walk outside. I’m planning on doing my best to just take this time to remind myself of all the hard work I put in before this pregnancy.
Mommy Goal #2, Allot for personal quiet reflection 3x per week
From what I’ve been told, before long I won’t have much time to sit quietly and reflect. I want to make a conscious effort to take at least 30 minutes, three times a week to just be present. Over these next few weeks, I need to pay attention to myself. Looking forward I really want to take this time to remember that even though I am becoming a mom, I’m still me.
Mommy Goal #3, Enjoy life as a duo before she arrives
In 90 days, we’ll be a trio. This little girl is going to change our lives as we know. Until then, I want to make sure that I cherish each and every moment that I have with David. Before her, we are just Sevi and David. The lovable couple who met all those years ago at a party unknowingly realizing that this was their end game. A couple who have shared their ups and downs, but in the end always seem to find each other. Two people who have grown with each other and experienced life in ways they never could’ve imagined. I want to remember these moments before we embark on our roles as mommy and daddy.
Here’s to 90 days! Have any other goals that you would recommend to add?
