As evidenced by my morning post, I have been on a rollercoaster of emotions today!!
I woke up mad at the world.
After my morning work, I decided a walk was what I needed. It was cool and cloudy which is ideal walking weather, and I wanted to stay as vertical as possible today to encourage baby’s head to get things going. I tend to feeeel more when I’m walking and just after. I’ve done more than enough sitting and resting the past few days!
I met Faith on her way to work and we power walked together. I ended up running across a street at one point and I ALMOST kept running – it felt euphoric! Suddenly I’m was feeling tons and tons of energy.
My friend Lara texted me that she was out if I wanted to keep walking, so I walked back downtown and ran errands with her – including a visit to a toy store : )
Finally I ran into Jenn and Levi and talked to them for a while. And felt a Braxton Hicks or two!
2 hours later, I was back home showering feeling MUCH better.
I put on a nice outfit*
*Nice relative to the terrible maternity shorts and tanks I wear all the time. Can’t wait to wear normal clothes again!
On my walk, I decided I would take myself out to lunch for some excitement. I was really in the mood for white tablecloths, big glasses of red wine, multiple courses and gourmet food. But obviously that wasn’t going to happen today.
So instead, I found one of the least expensive lunches in town and picked up Bodos Bagels for Matt and me. He was home for 2 days and I missed him already!
Takes me riiiiiight back to the first trimester – what is it about bagels + cream cheese and pregnancy!?
I had cinnamon raisin with plain CC – it was heavenly. Soft and doughy and rich in the middle. Plus a side of chips. This lunch was not about balanced nutrition.
It was about mental health and it worked!
Doctor’s appointment later. I have to find something to do in the meantime!
Alex and our newest employee, Bri, say hello!
