Baby Capricorn
The Capricorn child may be born looking like an old soul. This physical attribute will shift as the baby finds its childhood bearing, but the presence of an "old soul" will be apparent throughout life. There is a serious nature about Capricorn and a great determination to succeed. This personality trait will be become apparent as the child learns to walk and take care of its own basic needs (dressing, potty training, etc.). Parents may find this impressive focus "adorable," but it is important not to minimize the seriousness Capricorn children bring to these tasks. They tend to set ambitious goals and meet them when they are encouraged to be true to themselves.

Capricorns may have pronounced foreheads and remarkable eyes. As children, they do not readily participate in frivolous games and activities, preferring to learn and apply their knowledge to acquire greater skill. Games like chess may be preferred. Capricorn children will treasure the parent who teaches them practical skills. There is also a great respect for manner and tradition in this personality. Your child may show an interest in older cultures such as Japan, China, and even Europe. Exposure to these cultures through fairytales, children's books, and videos will be a delight for your young Capricorn.

Capricorn children may feel extremely empathic when forming relationships with peers although they may not always have the words to express the deep emotions they experience. Your support in connecting emotions with language will be vital to their development. Foundation and structure is essential to this sign. Young Capricorns will be conscious of their foundation from a young age. The best way to show your respect for your Capricorn child is through regularity and dependability.

Baby Journal: Living up these first weeks...

So I don't really feel very pregnant right now.  I'm eating as best I can, and the only thing that is noticeable is that I get tired a little easier now than I did.  And that I have to have breakfast.

I went to the gym last night and ran a mile and a half.  Granted, I won't be breaking any distance and speed records any time soon, but it was really nice to just run along on a treadmill.  The soft landings were quite nice.  I lifted a little, did a little bit of ab work, just so I don't get too squishy through this process.

As I was running, I'd talk to the baby.  "Come on little Bean... a little longer to go.  Healthy hearts Baby Bean, healthy hearts."  I can tell you though, a mile and a half was all that was in the tank.  I hopped off, realizing I could have gone further, but I have a track workout this afternoon, but I was satisfied.

I'm also trying to eat as well as I can.  I figure the better I eat, the better I'll feel and look, as well as the health of the babe.  I really don't want to be one of those women who get super huge in their pregnancies, especially since I have worked so hard to get in shape.  But to be honest, as my father in law said, all of that work was training leading up to the biggest endurance event I'll face.  I like that analogy.

I went to the book store last night too to get another pregnancy book, in particular on fitness and nutrition.  Nutrition books abound!!  Loads of those.  Fitness books?? None to be found.  So I'll have to research the web and talk to my former trainers at the HIT center to see what I can be doing (and what I shouldn't be doing).  I'm cleared for most everything, including running, so that is a big relief.

I also grabbed up some folic acid and fish oil, as I'm not getting enough in my daily diet, and my aversion to orange juice at the moment is pretty strong.

I'm just happy to not be sick so far.  Though, I have heard horror stories of women who were not sick, only to find out the embryo never developed.  I'm just taking it easy in my workouts (still enough to break a sweat, not enough to be exhausted.  Just a good 30-45 minutes in the gym and on the track four nights a week.), and I'm watching what I eat.  It's about all I can do right now.  Oh, and just be happy to not be sick.  Yet.

I was assured that that was coming down the pipe next.
