So, I've made it throught he first 3 months Munchkin. I must say I had my doubts the whole time that I could do this. It just seems like some wierd science experiment. I just kept expecting to go to the doctors and you'd be gone. But I've gotten to see you 3 times so far! You've gone from a little round sac to a full blown baby that wiggles and sucks it's thumb. The doctor said a wiggly baby is a healthy baby. That's good to know since I've been doing pretty much the exact opposite of what I should be doing. Instead of feeding you leafy greens and fruit, I've been filling up on wendy's chicken sandwichs and mcdonalds ice cream cones! I haven't had any real cravings, but eaten way too much junk food b/c I just don't feel like cooking. I did give up coffee though and have had only a few diet cokes along the way.
You came on like a sleep filled tornado from day 1. I cannot get enough sleep and I am really getting sick of that! Due to this my workouts have been sporadic at best. I went from the best shape of my life while training for a half ironman (I was biking 40-50 miles on the weekend and running for an hour after!) to about 15 lbs overweight (Mamma was already 7 lbs up from where she should be before you even came around! oops). Surprisingly I am not freaking out. I don't mind my gut, now that it's getting more round and everyone knows I'm pregnant, not just getting fat :) The big boobs are interesting as well. I kind of love being pregnant, I don't mind it for a moment. 6 months will fly by I am sure and I cannot wait to meet you. I have been very lucky to have no morning sickness, although I've felt fluish for the past several weeks. Hopefully as I step into our second trimester that will ease up a bit.
In just a weekMunchkin you will take your first cross country flight. Probably your last for awhile. We're going on vacation and we're going to run a half marathon surrounded by the redwood forest. It's going to be great!
