February: Favorite list of the month

-  

With the New Year there always comes an opportunity to change things, chance of new beginnings. To our family the start of the year has been really about new beginnings when our baby boy was born.

This time I wanted to write about doing sports during pregnancy. For more than two years I have exercised regularly three to four times a week, and pregnancy hasn’t changed that.
