I started back working today and fortunately, I am able to do it from home and on a part time basis. It’s very helpful. I don’t have to worry about commuting for an hour each way to work/home. I realized that I am still recovering even though my incision has healed quite well and I have been weaned off the pain meds. I am not trying to be heroic, I just didn’t want to keep pumping myself with pain meds since I do have a little bean absorbing whatever I put into my system.
I wish I had more energy and I miss prenatal yoga quite a bit. I have to take another two weeks off from stretching but I’m trying to put some meditation time into my day.
My appetite has also become unpredictable. I don’t care much for food these days but I have the odd craving for ice cream, donuts, peanut butter & sugar bagels and bananas. Not all bad for me. My current favorite ice cream flavor is coconut. It’s never been my favorite before! I love this brand, it’s very tasty and not overwhelmingly coconut-y. I get it from the local Asian supermarket but it’s available on Amazon Fresh too.
