I ran the whole way!

It's the small victories in life....I ran the entire 4.33 miles today! Yes, at the end I was going so slow the dog was literally walking beside me....but I was still running...haha.

Weight gain is holding steady at 16 lbs (26 weeks and 2 days). I actually lost 2 lbs since Eric and I moved in the house and stopped eating out for every single meal. I feel pretty good about that. We are trying to limit eating out to one time per week. If you know us well, that's a HUGE change for us! We usually eat out nearly everyday while at work for lunch and at least every 2 or 3 days for dinner. I went shopping today and stocked the cupboards so there's no excuse.

In other exciting pregnancy news, I ordered a breast pump. Joy. It seems like an evil necessity for me. I found a deal online for the Medela Freestyle that I couldn't pass up. Eric and I are trying to do "baby on a budget" and this price matched out needs. We are trying to buy lots of used things but read that we shouldn't do that on the carseat and breastpump.

We have an appointment tomorrow for the first time in our new town! We are going to visit the Nurse-Midwives at University of Nebraska Medical Center and see if they are a good fit for us. So far, I love what they are about....natural and active birth. Hell, I didn't work this hard or run this hard for nothing! It better pay off on delivery day or I want my money back.

  1. working out during pregnancy DEFINITELY helped during delivery. my doula is convinced it is the one thing that allowed me to go epi-free even though i was induced and in labor for 28 hours. endurance!!!
