Know the feeling?
Sometimes, you really do just have to shove your booty out of the chair or off the couch and get out the door. James and I ended up going for a post-work 30-minute walk – I was quite proud of myself for not totally blowing off exercise.
Walking for the win!
However… halfway through the walk, I started to get really, really bad cramps. So bad that I thought it could be a contraction. At this point, I’m pretty much on constant high alert (which I realize could be extremely frustrating considering that I’m still 3 weeks from my due date, but I can’t help myself). I found myself clutching my knees (like so) and heh-heh-heh breathing in the middle of the street. Very melodramatic, I’m sure.
Unfortunately/fortunately… False alarm. Feeling went away and never returned. I’ve noticed that the baby seems to become a lot more active on my walks (I waver between thinking he/she is aggravated and excited), so that was probably the cause of the sensations.
Meanwhile, James was taking a giant doggie poo and sniffing the grass. Thanks, James.
Anyway…. eats of the day included a few random handfuls of this and that, as well as a yogurt mess (Greek yogurt, raspberries, oatmeal, coconut, sunflower seeds):
And this lovely dinner – a salad, creamy polenta from Trader Joe’s (found in the frozen food section), and canned baked beans.
Going to take my false-alarming baby bump to bed. Goodnight!
