The black days are over

The black days as my husband refers to, seem to have passed and pregnancy is following much more normally. My bump is incredibly enough for me already showing a little and most of my clothes can't seem to fit that much. In my last pregnancy, I started having a bump round about mid August so I don't have clothes for now. In fact I need to go get me some maternity clothes and this is quite a big problem since in Malta you get like half a dozen clothes on the racks for maternity and I don't quite like the idea of buying clothes online!

I am still 2 and a half weeks off from my ultrasound to determine exactly how many weeks I am. The most I should be when I got for my ultrasound is 14 weeks but my gyni thinks I am less. I on the other hand believe I would be that much if not slightly more. I am so anxious for this day to arrive that I can't seem to focus on the present moment at times.

My main concern at the moment is the pain in my sitting bones which have me not being able to bend, climb stairs, wash the house, do lots of exersize and so on. From what I gleamed on the net its a pubic disorder where the sitting bones which start moving for when the baby needs to be born move a little bit too much. I will need to confirm more on this at my next appt. however the symptoms are all there and when I am more careful on these issues there is less pain. However for the past 2 days its has been a bit bad more than usual. Unfortunately, the only thing I can suspect is yoga which should be helping me. So I will have to be careful or avoid hip openers (though these are the most suggested for pregnancy!). I emailed a couple of weeks ago one of the yoga pregnancy gurus but unfortunately she doesn't seem to be helpful online since the only response was to attend class and when I explained I don't live in the UK had no further contact with me. It is quite a shame and I will try find some one else who might be able to help and suggest me the best yoga to do for now and considering my problem.

Wish you all a good weekend

That was pretty crappy! I can't believe you didn't get any help online just because of where you live, not nice at all. I'm sure in the you'll find some answers, if not in this SUPER WWW the old conventional way: hit the bookstore mommy! *I wanted to call you that*

I have a very dear friend (from college) that is a very reliable yoga source as she taught it to a University Mens B-Ball team and had her own studio.

I'd be happy to connect the two of you, if you like. She's got a baby of her own, so I'm sure she's hip on prego yoga trends!

Let me know!
