Andrea | Sunday, 11 May 2014
Being a mum, what am I looking forward to most? That's a tough one, at least for me. This is my first baby, I am due in July and I am terrified. Am I going to be a good mum, am I going to have a good relationship with my child, am I going to repeat my parent's mistakes, is she going to see right through me? My husband and I have been together for 10 years and it seemed like it was never a good time for a baby, so much responsibility, so many questions, so many unknowns and insecurities. I have gone through this over and over in my head, am I really ready, is there such a time when you truly feel ready as we are talking about a tiny little being that will count on us and depend on us forever! For me, this is an overwhelming experience. I suppose all I can honestly say is that I will make sure I do all that I can to give my baby the best possible life I can, filled with unconditional love, to make her know that I will always be there for her when and if she needs me, to keep her safe and teach her good values so she grows up in a strong and caring young woman. I suppose that's all any of us could hope for, for their children to be happy, healthy and strong. I think that's actually THE thing I am looking forward to most: watching my daughter grow up into a good human being and taking the best from what life has to offer. I suppose there is a little bit of selfishness here, on my part, but can't help not smiling when I think about it. :-)

Felicia: Exercise and My Pregnancy Team
It’s important to have a support network during your pregnancy – your friends and family are great, especially if they’ve already had kids of their own (as they’re then full of useful info!) and my trusty husband.
With a growing baby, you ultimately want the very best of people looking after you!
Saying that, meet some of my other support team:
How to Beat the Australian Summer Heat During Your Pregnancy
When you’re pregnant, the rate at which your body burns up energy when not active is 20 percent higher than it normally is. This measurement is known as your basal metabolic rate and especially in summer, this change in your body’s functioning can really heat things up.
