I know many woman who do everything 'right' once they fall pregnant. Eat the right foods, exercise, stretch, drink plenty of water, sleep on their right side etc.
I also know many of woman, who do not. They dont change much of anything really.
With my first pregnany, I was somewhat more pedantic. This time around, I confess I have been pretty slack I exercised (walked) quite regularly for about..oh..a month..then the weather got too hot and I lost all motivation with my almost 3 yr old sucking the life outta me. I did quit smoking and am not a drinker. I LOVE eating ice when I am pregnant so I am always pretty well hydrated..but diet wise I have been shocking! If anything, I am worse then before I was pregnant! I love anything deep fried and sugary. Its not any one thing I crave..aslong as its bad for me I'll eat it! My sleeping habits are also pretty bad as Ds has just moved out of cot into bed and is exploring his new found freedom ar 2am-3am-4am..etc!
So to the point ...at 27 weeks I am having a big urge to start eating right/stretching etc. Do you think its to late too start? Would bub actually benefit from me changing these habits this far into the pregnancy?
I just scratch my head as to why what I would classify "unhealthy" pregnant woman (like myself) and the "healthy" woman..seem to have the same odds of having a 'healthy' baby born? I am generally speaking of course, I understand medical factors, genetics etc can play a role in all of this.
Wow. You can tell I am having an emotional/hormonal/deep thinking day haha.
Thanks to anyone who actually read this far and still understands what I am on about!
