I only asked for 10 minutes

Written by: Dianne Edmonds Posted on 29 Apr 2013 0

How many times when that 10 minutes mattered to me, and “would have” saved my day from going downhill, in these days of raising children? It was highlighted again this morning, when my walk was short, the mornings being darker now, and I get home still in time for my husband to go to work.

The Gift of an Ordinary Day

I love those words by author Katrina Kenison in her book The Gift of an Ordinary Day. I read the first chapter yesterday. After hearing her speak in an interview with the Power of Mums recently, I ordered a number of her books to read, including Magical Journey, An Apprenticeship in Contentment.

While I have written about sleep before, when I said in my last blog that I was going back to my postnatal 0-3 weeks set of exercises, I didn’t mean that I also wanted to feel sleep deprived. But, with nearly a week of interrupted sleep at the time of writing this, I am.

9 1/2 m...no years....Post Natal

Written by: Dianne Edmonds Posted on 01 Apr 2013 0

Ok, I will admit it. I am 9 ½ years post natal! I have been going to make a ‘come back’ since my second child, my son, was 6 weeks old, but it still hasn’t happened.

Dianne Edmonds 3/06/2013 5:24:30 PM Thanks Lori for your comments. It would be great for postnatal mums to learn this now and not take 9 1/2 years like I did to find out about this information. I was listening to Dr Sara last night and was reminded that we can help join in with her audacious goal to balance the hormones of 1 million women in 2013 - starting here with our postnatal mums!

Thanks again Lori!

Lori Forner 1/06/2013 1:14:13 PM Hi Dianne!

I am a physio in here in Brisbane and deal mostly now with Women's Health-related patients. I heard about Dr Gottfried's book a short while ago and it's on my to-read list! I love the tiara idea! I think it's so important for any postnatal mom, whether new or 9 1/2 yrs later, to take time out for themselves. We don't do it enough. Even to eat - I tend to catch myself eating standing up or on the run :)

Thank you so much for your blogs, I really enjoy them and I advise my patients to read them as well.

Fiona Scrymgeour 10/04/2013 3:31:01 PM Transformation is an amazing process when you are pregnant but also creating a new life for you and your young children. The greatest stress is balancing being a mum and earning an income. There are some great options available to avoid going back to the stress of work and bringing home the stress to your family. I have started a fantastic work from home based business which is just perfect for having both flexibility and income flow. If you are interested in transforming you work and motherhood have a look at www.improvesuccess.com.au for some options. Wishing yo all the best in your transformation!

Onpreeya 8/02/2013 2:14:55 PM yes, i am pregnant now 36 weeks aclltuay and months and months before i found out i was pregnant i reckon i took about 30 odd tests, every 2-3 weeks as i was desperate to fall pregnant and had no symptoms the first time i fell pregnant till about 20 weeks so i knew i wouldn't be able to tell from my body changing. Anyway just be patient and don't waste as much money as i did on tests if it's meant to be it will beReferences :
