I wish I had an awesome weekend re-cap for you. I wish I had a bunch of really fun, great pictures to show off. I wish I had some incredible stories to share with you. But I have NONE of these.
You see....this weekend was....different for us. We're constantly on the go. Always working on something on the house. Always having somewhere to be. Always doing SOMETHING! But Thursday night, my 24 week along pregnant body and my 6 mile run didn't get along. I spent Thursday night crying because I was in so much pain. I couldn't walk. My body failed me and I couldn't understand why. I'd done everything right. So why is this happening to me now?! Needless to say, I spent Friday and most of the weekend laying low (and feeling sorry for myself...and crying...and feeling like a failure) - icing, resting, taking it easy (not easy for me to do.) The hubs on the other hand worked his cute little butt off - he's seriously a ROCKSTAR! Even with me laid up and not my normal self, we got everything crossed off the to-do list, except blueberry picking. Not too shabby, I suppose. I got my glucose test out of the way...I now own a pregnancy support garment (that's still too big to do what it's supposed to do!)...I cleaned the house (with MANY breaks and not doing as much as I normally would)...Matt finished up some projects and did a bunch of other things around the house...we had dinner out with friends (in lieu of kayaking which my body just wouldn't have been able to do Saturday - Booooo!!!!)...we spent time at Babies R Us working on our registry...went to Target to look at cribs and dressers/changing tables...met up with my mother-in-law and had dinner with her...and just laid low and tried to rest as much as possible. Not overly exciting, I know....
I'm still not back to normal - not even close. I walk as if I've gained 60lbs and am 40+ weeks along. I'm sore. But I'm takin' it easy...hoping to get back to the gym ASAP (and fingers crossed back to running if I can get healed properly!)...get back to my normal self...feeling like ME - as ME like as I can feel pregnant that is :) And on that note, I leave you with this - I speak only the truth...
