Goodbye Golf

I haven't posted anything in 2 months. I was trying to keep my mind off playing golf and everything golf related. See, 2 weeks in to September, I found out that I am pregnant. Yes, I will have a little baby golfer in May 2010. I was really happy and excited about it but with every good thing comes sacrifice. I wasn't allowed by my doctor to play golf during my 1st trimester and come second trimester I was told that I could only play up to my 20th week as long as I abide with my doctor's "conditions". I guess every pregnancy is different. I am currently on my 16th week of pregnancy and after consulting with my doctor about playing 4 weeks ago, I have decided to not play at all. Why you ask? I play golf to have fun, get my exercise and enjoy but I feel that the conditions given to me would not make golf as fun as I am limited to so many things and at the back of my head, I don't want to be worrying about pregnancy-related things when I am out there (though I am still doing some putting drills in the living room).

I surely miss golf and I cant wait to play again next year but I know for sure that this sacrifice will be worth it once my baby arrives. Being a first time mom cant be as hard as learning to swing a golf club is it?


  1. Well congratulations. My wife is currently pregnant and I'm sure it may soon eat into my golf as well!

  2. Congratulations to you too, AG! :)

  3. I just now caught this blog. Congrats on your new little duffer.
