The weeks seem so long and the weekends so short these days…
Tim and I had a pretty good weekend. On Friday we had dinner with Val and Derek and then Tim helped Derek set up a tent for their party the next day. My tiredness is definitely becoming more noticeable. I was a little crabby when we were getting home and all I could think of was sleep.
We woke up early the next morning to go watch Tim’s brother, Joe and sister, Mackenzie in a triathlon and it was so hard to get out of bed! Tim and I ran during some of the triathlon and it just felt like I wanted it to be done. Some of that I’m sure was because it was in the high 80’s so it was pretty uncomfortable. Either way, I got my 1st 6 mile run in, which was very nice. Standing around talking after the tri though I started to feel dizzy and like I really needed to sit down and drink water so I did. Tim stopped at a gas station and bought us some bottled water. Hit the spot.
Later in the day I took a half a sleeping pill and actually napped for maybe close to a couple hours. It could have/should have been longer but sometimes once I’m awake I have a hard time getting back to sleep but it felt so good to sleep. It was hard to get myself motivated to get ready for Val’s party, but of course once we got there I had a great time.
I wasn’t really all that hungry, I kind of felt more full and bloated but I ate a full dinner plate and surprised myself by having a piece of cake and loving it. I’m usually not a cake person at all but for some reason it tasted sooo good. We stayed till close to 1 am and I pretended to drink so the end was hard because I was really tired and wanted to go to bed, but I did have a great time.
Sunday morning the heat finally broke and I went for a nice 28 mile bike ride. I actually passed a guy and I wasn’t really going that fast and he felt the need to catch back up to me and tell me it was his “easy” day. I could have told him “yeah, me too…I’m preggo!” but that would have ruined my fun inside joke.
Sunday I finally did some of my core work out and that felt good again and then we went to my parent’s house for dinner. The tiredness was unbelievable and we got home and went to bed early.
Yesterday I set my alarm for 5:30 am to get up and get 4 miles in before it got hot but my leg was kind of tight by/on my IT band so I waited and ran at lunch. It wasn’t too bad. It was in the 80’s but most of my run was in the shade. Everything felt pretty good.
Today I’ll run with Darla at noon. It will be my first time running with her in a while. Yesterday afternoon I felt kind of nauseous but it seemed to be ok once I got home and had dinner. This morning I felt different too. Its hard to explain but I had to slowly sip my water this morning. Things in my body definitely feel different. I’m so anxious to get through the first trimester so we can tell people and also because the risk of miscarriage goes down significantly at that point.
