Approaching The End


I feel pretty terrible about not blogging. Not because I know anyone out there missed my posts, but because it would have been nice to have more reflections to look back on during this crazy adventure called pregnancy. Oh well. The reason for not blogging mainly had to do with moving our blogs over to a different hosting site. Hmm…I wonder if anyone actually made the move over with me?

Well, I’m nearing the end of my pregnancy. And while I love growing this child of ours, I am ready for this to be over. I’m ready to meet out little one, and I’m ready to not be pregnant anymore. I’m currently 31 weeks (32 on Sunday). Things have been progressing normal and great. Our last appointment at 30 weeks went perfect. I measured 30 weeks and baby sounded great. I’m looking forward to Monday and our 32 week appointment except for the fact that it’ll be the first one Bryan has missed. I love hearing our baby’s heartbeat!

With 2 months to go (roughly), I’m a bag of complaints….pubic bone pain, Braxton Hicks contractions, lack of energy, hip pain when I sleep, heartburn, weird sleeping patterns…just to name a few. I had some Braxton Hicks contractions the other night, and I felt that I was standing on the threshold of pain. They didn’t hurt, but I felt like I was about a degree away from pain. And during these, I got my first glimpse of the reality and potential pain of real contractions. Um, yeah….not really looking forward to that. 🙂 But I’ll do it, because I gotta and because it’s the only way to meet baby. And I’d already do anything for baby.

I’m having my baby shower on March 6th. I’m so excited. And I owe it all to a wonderful lady and friend, Paula. I know it’s gonna be perfect! I’m most excited to get the stuff I’ve been itching to have but hesitant to buy on my own. I’m ready to start seeing that nursery really come together. I like to see everything in its place which is definitely not the current status of the nursery.

We finished our Bradley Method birthing classes last night. It was bittersweet. I like seeing all the couples each week and talking about our woes and whatnot. I’ll see them again at our reunion which will be awesome because we’ll all have babies! Yay babies!!

In other news:

I’ve been coaching the Kids’ Speed & Agility class at CrossFit Cedar Park since mid- January. The class is finally starting to take off…slowly. I was so happy the day my first kid showed up. I have 2 regulars, but I’ve had others come by and try it. And I’ve had many calls asking about it. So, there’s potential. Regardless of the amount of children in any given class, I’m loving the job! I love working with children as much as I love fitness….getting to combine them is just pure awesomeness. But, on Monday, I get to teach my first adult CrossFit class. It’s just a one day gig as I’m filling in for someone, but that doesn’t take away from my excitement!!

Bryan has been brought on by CrossFit Cedar Park to help us come together in a more organized, digital way. And he’s doing an amazing job. Now all of the coaches have blogs in one place…even me. I actually have 2…not to brag…hehe. Just kidding…I have a personal one as well as one for my S&A class. Check out my postings from each which so far is just one per blog. RSS and keep up with me and my class.
