Pregnancy Brings Out Our True Colors

What is my color? Control freak.

I have realized that I am in fact one of those hideous freaks of control. To me this came as a surprise though my husband laughed at my realization. Apparently he had always been privy to this information.

I try to go with the flow, but it is so hard for me! I remember one time someone read my palm and the first thing they said to me was: "Woah, you need to lighten up." Hmmm... easier said than done.

My cousin is pregnant and she is just the opposite of me. She's waiting until the birth of her child to find out the sex. Me? I found out the first chance I got because I needed to be prepared. She has a "it's natural so things will go the way it should" attitude. I have a chart on my wall to track my daily intake of water, kegals, vitamin and exercise. Not even a joke.

I have started to meditate and it seems to be helping. Marginally.

I suppose every step in the right direction is good...

  1. Sometimes it's good to be a planner, and in control, and sometimes it's good to go with the flow and relax. I think you just need to find a mix between the two.

  2. This will be fun! I saw you on MBC, and am now your newest follower. My baby is five months old and my other "baby" is 3 1/2. I look forward to getting to know you better! On your post...I would agree that a good mix is healthy. I tend to lean a bit more on the relaxed side of most things, and that works well for me. I know other people who can't relax, though, unless they plan everything out. You just do what works. :) Fun post!

  5. The chart is actually not a bad idea as I forgot to take my daily vitamins almost every single day! and kegels are oh so important - don't want a loose vajayjay! LOL
