    Default pregnancy

    Hi all,

    Please review and correct the following paragraph:

    ------------------------------------------------

    I was watching Olympics before my 2nd child birth in 2008 September. When I see such games I always feel I wish I could also have done such rewarding things in my life. I was in my third trimester and these Olympics were filling me with an enthusiasm to take care of myself at least for my baby if not for the nation. I was all healthy since my childhood and If I had taken care of myself, it would be a wonderful pregnancy. I had a very few problems like mild nausea and leg cramps. I should have taken care of my health no matter what as pregnancy is a beautiful event to give birth to a new life. Moreover I wasn’t pretty mush sure about the procedure to push the baby. Somehow I assumed it’s a part of Doctor’s responsibility so ended up forceps delivery inspite of a small baby (7 pounds). For the second pregnancy I was all determined to enjoy my every single day. I had the nausea even in 2nd pregnancy but I work on it and always diverted myself while eating. I used to grab a book or watching TV or talking over the phone to my friends before I start eating and it worked amazingly. The best part my second pregnancy was my four year old son who kept me moving. Prenatal Yoga is also helped me a lot to balance my emotional ups and downs which I wasn’t able to manage in my first pregnancy.

    Hope that helps. )
