    Default Superman and I

    So... Way back yonder I posted my massive terrifying fears about the pregnancy and not wanting it and feeling like crap. I am days under 12weeks and those initial fears are gone and I now very much am excited and looking forward to meeting Superman. (Superman is the chosen name for in utero, even once a name is picked we call it Superman until its tangible!) Absolutely everyone knows and has for quite some time, but being surrounded by nurses most suspected before I told anyone. Baby daddy/boyfriend and I have more recently had pretty extensive conversations about his intended involvement with the baby and how he plans to contribute. Fortunately we are 100% on the same page.
    He is not a big fan of me running regularly, or exercising really at all. But, doc cleared me to run a 200mile relay race a few weeks ago, so 3-5miles a week for as long as I can is the goal. My exhaustion has taken over and I'm finding it difficult just to eat bc I don't have the energy, unfortunately sugar is dropping too low and I'm blacking out. So I have to set alarms and at least keep Gatorade in me. I now know the warning signs so it hasn't been drastic lately.
    So, this is long but I wanted to clarify my rant from over a month ago. Currently, no complaints! I've had 3 ultrasounds so far and going again next week.

    Glad to hear things are going well.

    If your doc has cleared you to run, go for it but don't push yourself too hard!! I ran a ton with my 2nd pregnancy and was able to run until my last month (although by the end it was a slow job, fast walk!). It not only helped my body feel good up through the birth unlike my first pregnancy where I felt "DONE!" the last few weeks, but the weight came off sooooo much easier after. I found the key was to just listen to my body even if it meant not doing as much as I "thought" I could/should because we have no idea how much work our body is going through making a baby!

    Great update! I'm excited and happy for you!! I love it when first time moms share their experience. You're going to love it when baby gets bigger and stronger and you can feel the movements...it's so awesome. It's great too that you are so active; it really will make the pregnancy easier if you stay healthy and active.
