Now that friends and family know the good news, advice of of every kind pours in. I am bombarded with all sorts of information. the challenge is to sort through it and follow what is suitable to my lifestyle. Or more exactly,change my lifestyle to suit the pregnancy.
Most of the advice I am getting comes from women who have gone through this experience. Even though pregnancy is a universal condition, each one of them has experienced it in her unique way.
The literature on pregnancy is abundant. The books that describe every stage are endless. And however comprehensive all that information is, I intuitively know that the only true guide is going to be my inner voice; a genetically built in mechanism that will help and direct me during the next nine months.
