Running while pregnant
So I have been walking for exercise almost everyday since my last prenatal appointment in order to keep my weight in check. Yesterday during my walk, I felt really good and began to jog. The pace was almost 2x slower than my pre-pregnancy average pace, BUT it felt good nonetheless. I did walk most of the first mile and periodically when I had a sharp pain. I ended up doing a 5k in 49 minutes. My PR in the 5k is 23:32.
I was hopeful that since it didn’t hurt too bad during, that afterwards I would still feel good and if so, planned to do it again either the next day or in the near future.
It was much to my dismay that I woke up with the same round ligament pains I experienced that made me decide previously not to run until after I give birth and recover :(
Hello running; farewell running. Until mid-February…
Today has been wonderful!
First-I only woke up 1 time last night!!
So I was in a good mood right away and felt refreshed. I met up with one of my best friends for a coffee (decaf w/soy) and accidently spilled some down the front of my shirt! Then my friend and I quick went to a nearby maternity and kids clothes consignment shop and I bought a fresh shirt for $7, before heading off to work.
I was running ahead of schedule and decided to drive around some back roads to kill time, which was really fun. Then I worked with my client for 4 hours and he did a good job responding to my interventions and prompting! I felt my baby kicking a lot off and on during the session too!
Then I had a meeting with my boss, who reviewed my latest behavior support plan and functional behavior assessment and gave me kudos, plus company “bingo tickets” which I won $11 on!
She also asked me which cases I wanted to drop after maternity leave and agreed with my choices! So I will most likely have about 14 direct hours and 4 non direct after I come back!! I think that will be great!
I stopped to get ingredients to make vegan mozzarella sticks and went home.
From the mail I found out I may not need as many continuing education credits to renew my license! This could save me $400 this year!
And then I went for a hike at my favorite park while hubby did trail running!
Awesome day :)
Scheduled maternity pics!
It will be at 30 weeks!!
Doing them outside at a local park for $60/half hour session. Hoping I’m not super swollen by then!
Someone I went to high school lost their baby at 21 weeks
It is so sad. They were going to be such great parents. And I hope they will get the chance again.
Crying for them and cherishing even more than before every movement I feel of my little one inside.
Reflecting on how blessed and lucky I am for all I have been given and worked for in my life.
Thank you so much…

I BET THAT COW WASNT LAUGHING WHEN YOU SLAUGHTERED IT HUH

Umm male calves are slaughtered (veal) as a byproduct of the dairy industry…so that comment makes more sense then you think.
