While I slept well for most of the night, I woke up this morning, tried to roll over and was paralyzed by a sharp, tearing, popping nerve-like pain in my upper abs – just under my ribcage. I’m telling you, when pregnant you just never know what your body is going to do next! The pain was gone in an instant and the spot is just slightly sore now. After some 5:30am research, I think it’s either muscle or nerve stretching/compression related to having a small torso, going through a growth spurt (my belly button looks weird overnight!), possible ab separation (which is apparently very common) and standing too much yesterday. Doctor’s appt on Tuesday, so I will discuss it then. Not the best morning so far though!
Thankfully today is more low-key and I do not have any late engagements, so I can either try to take a nap and/or go to bed early. I definitely don’t have the stamina for these events like I used to! Any kind of exercise was out of the question this morning.
In other news, breakfast today isn’t until 9am!!! #Hungryhungryhippos
I’ve been snacking on graham crackers and a KIND bar from my swag bag and sipping coffee. Can’t wait to see what’s on the menu this morning!
I just finished up a GLORIOUS shower with my Rose #31 products – one of the best (THE best?) hotel bathroom experiences ever! Love the smells, my robe, etc.
Sporting my Five Bamboo Eat Real Food shirt today! (Is there a way to mirror a photo in Lightroom!? Haha)
An Ethical Question:
At every conference I have a few swag items that I either cannot take home or do not need. I have often thought that perhaps the hotel staff would appreciate a new set of tongs, a can of soup, unopened drink or some coupons for free granola bars. However, I do not want to leave my room full of heavy trash that they have to deal with either. Or perhaps the hotel has a rule that they have to assume the items were left by the guest and put in lost and found? I thought about leaving my tip for the weekend or a note next to the things to indicate they could take them, but again, if they don’t want them, would they just be annoyed that they have to remove them? At other BlogHers there have been swag exchange rooms where the leftovers were donated to charity, but I don’t think there is one here… and what do you do if there isn’t one?
What do you think?
