When Its Over

Friday morning I went out for a walk.  I went to my favorite 3 mile loop around the lake.  I strapped on my new support belt, filled up a water bottle and headed out.

I walked for the first 2 miles, then jogged for about a half a mile before I got too freaking HOT and had to walk again.  I guess the support belt helped... but it can't do much for the interior movements of my uterus, so it still felt like my baby might come falling out.

I'm pretty much done with running for the rest of my pregnancy.  Unless I can find a place that is 60º and take frequent breaks.  It's disappointing, when I see other women that ran up until the week before they gave birth.  But every woman is different and every pregnancy is different and if it's uncomfortable, it's uncomfortable and I'm not going to be more uncomfortable than I have to be.

So... my blog is going to be pretty boring for the next few months.  Sorry.  I'll understand if you don't come back, because all you'll be getting is bump updates and then MILLIONS of baby pictures once the little girl is here.

I'm just warning you now.

Boring? No way.

I ain't going anywhere so blog about baby pictures and sonograms all you want.

I agree with L.B. We're not going anywhere at all.

Keep those pics coming!

In your last post you mentioned a "Harry Potter marathon." I started to imagine hundreds of people in wizard robes and pointy hats. It got me so excited that I immediately googled it, only to realize that you must have just been talking about watching the movies (i.e. no such marathon exists). Big bummer. I was getting pumped about running 26.2 with a bunch of wizards. :(

That is a spectacular idea about a Harry Potter themed marathon! I would do that in a heart beat!!!!

Happy Fun Pants said... belly bump pictures are the best. Besides, you look great and healthy - and THAT takes restraint. :)

The other day I was complaining to one of my blog readers about how boring I feel my blog has been lately. She assured me it has been nothing but boring and that she wishes that when she was pregnant she had been able to find some good blogs on pregnancies. Not every person wants to hear about the super heros who ran the day they gave birth(which I certainly was not able to do). REAL stories about not being able to run are just as important. Kudos to you for listening to your body :)
