Wheeeeeeeeew! Thank you so much for your comments on the post-baby birth control post. People sure love to discuss birth control! In all seriousness, your comments were â€“ as usual â€“ extremely helpful. Even though many highly respected medical organizations say it works well, enough of you commented, â€œI am a LAM method babyâ€ or â€œI was doing LAM and now I have two children 11 months apartâ€ to totally freak me out. I may be exploring other options. Especially since Marissa C made me realize that I will probably be traveling a lot for work when the baby is four months or so and thus pumping (which reduces the effectiveness).
And this is why I discuss such topics on the old bloggie. Live and learn.
Breakfast is served.
Simple but delicious.
So, yesterday, I worked out extremely hard. And by extremely hard, I mean that I swam 0.5 mile and went on a 2.0 mile walk. Itâ€™s all relative, right? At this point in my pregnancy, that felt like an Ironman. I was so ridiculously sore by the evening, slept like a metaphorical baby, and was stiff as a board this morning.
Do you purposefully stretch every day? I confess â€“ I am really bad at stretching. I got away without stretching for years because Iâ€™m naturally freakishly flexible.
Case in point: My stupid party trick.
Not to be confused with the Husbandâ€™s stupid party trick, which is more about mad skills than stretch-ability.
Anyway, not only are my shoulders â€˜double-jointedâ€™, but I can put my legs behind my head (Iâ€™ll spare you an image of a 9-month preggers lady doing this). Since Iâ€™m so flexible, Iâ€™ve never really felt the need to regularly stretchâ€¦ until now. My hamstrings are always SO tight. Iâ€™ve been making a point to stretch out for 10 minutes or so every evening â€“ while watching TV, of course â€“ and manâ€¦ it feels so good.
Are you naturally flexible? Do you regularly stretch? Any cool party tricks?
