Yes, the honeymoon phase of pregnancy has officially left the building for me.
I am uncomfortable. Hot. Stretched. Uncomfortable.
I seriously do no know how another 9.5 +/- weeks will feel. I already feel stretched to the max and uncomfortable to sleep or sit for very long.
Did I mention I went to Miami for 4 days last week and thought I might keel over from the heat and humidity-- and that would have been if I weren't pregnant?! Only being 10 weeks away from baby-land on top of my normal distain for heat and I am was really feeling hot!
I did get a run in while in Miami. I am sure it helped to have run in the morning vs the evening, but I am pretty sure I was sweating as much as an afternoon run here. It was pretty to run along the beach though. I only lasted a little over 20 sweaty minutes.
Hubby actually ran with me this morning! Since it's supposed to be 93 today with an insane heat index, I wanted to run before work. This requires that I go out before 6 when it is still dark. Since hub's didn't want me to run alone in the dusk, he came with me. He's a great runner-- he just doesn't make the time for it right now, so he is also a great running partner because he can easily talk and converse at any pace. Have I mentioned I am crazy about that guy? ; )
In other news-- I found my first stretch mark on my side/hip while in Miami. I had a total cry fest over it-- I called the hubby at work in tears. I can't only blame it on hormones, though I would like to. It was a cry of giving up control, anxiety, fear and general sadness over how growing a baby takes over your body-- that up until that point you feel you had some control over. So yeah. That's the real side of all of this. I should say that Mark was totally sweet about my meltdown and said he is getting really excited to meet our kiddo and that I will still be beautiful. Again, I love that guy. And I am excited about having a baby too. The unknown is always a little intimidating to me. I am a creature of habit and all is new with a baby in the belly and on his/her way into our lives!
