Catching Up: 11 Weeks


Written June 4, 2014

Baby Pep,

Well, baby, you broke my streak. I made it 11 weeks without throwing up once. I've been feeling like a bump on a log lately and really wanted to get back into exercising so both you and I are healthy! I figured mowing the lawn would be the perfect way to slowly get back into a more active lifestyle. You did not agree. I mowed for about an hour, came in and took a shower, and then instantly felt horrible. Your Daddy and I laid in bed watching re-runs of The Office, until Mommy started hurling her insides into the trash can I had smartly thought to place beside the bed. Your Daddy ran around the house frantically trying to figure out what he could do to help me while I expelled everything I ate that day. Not pleasant.

I guess I should just be thankful that this was only the first time that happened. I also need to be more conscious about staying hydrated in this hot weather and making sure not to push myself too hard! I have a Pregnancy Yoga DVD on the way and Daddy has promised to do some with me. I think that'll be the perfect way to ease my way into a healthy lifestyle!

Both Daddy and I are looking forward to this weekend. Your Mama's good friend Rachel is going to take some pictures for us so we can send an announcement to our friends and family. We're going back to Branstrator Farm where we were married. What a perfect way to come full circle! 

So excited to watch you grow, little one. Thanks for taking it easy on your Mom ;)

Love, 
Mommy
