Waking up early brings a hodge podge of info

When I first visited the doctor to confirm I was pregnant, I received a packet of information, including a card to subscribe to a magazine called American Baby. I received the "welcome" addition in the mail yesterday, and it has tons of great information for a newly expectant mother. I highly recommend it, especially considering the first six issues are free.

Also found a great Web site for finding a baby name called Nymbler. Basically it finds names based on ones you like and don't like. I was fairly amazed at some of the names that started popping up based on my selections because some were my favorites! Check it out.

As you can see from my time stamp, I'm up way too early this morning. This is the first time I've woken up and couldn't fall back asleep since my pregnancy began. Practicing yoga usually helps me get a good night's sleep, but I think I allowed my mind to get too riled up yesterday due to things at work and then at my yoga class. I actually received my first negative comment card at the Y about the music I had in class Monday. I played a sitar CD given by a "friend" over in India I had worked with during my day job. I knew it was a little risky but thought I'd give it a try. I think the negative comment resonated with me even more since I left my 9-to-5 job a little pissy. Here's a fine example of the law of attraction working - what we put out there, we attract. So I allowed negativity about something that doesn't even matter, and I received more of it. It's so hard to stay positive, but it is worth it in the long run.

I'm going to try and go back to sleep with some happy thoughts... wish me luck!

Just so you know, Marjie, I liked the sitar CD. You need to bring it again.

I forgot I had blogged about the negative comment I received about the sitar CD. Now that I've shared my blog with my YMCA students, I better be careful! HEE HEE! I'm glad you liked the CD; I think I'll hold off on it for a little while and try it again. :)
