Re: The importance of rest
Copy, cut and paste for the "recipe for a good pregnancy." I swear, it seems as though only moms TRULY get how important rest is nowadays. I feel like everyone expects me to do more than I will (Ive had to make VERY firm boundaries around my rest/naps to protect my own sanity) and Ive also gotten into the habit of making myself appear to do less than I do during my personal time (i.e., lying lol) b/c I feel like if people knew I had the energy to, say.... exercise (i.e., necessary for a healthy pregnancy) they would also expect me to cook full course meals everyday, attend functions every weekend, hang out late with friends etc. Ive become VICIOUS about protecting my rest!!!! Its SO important :-)
