You may have read my past posts and already know about how I had a stent put in my ureter after a scary kidney infection while I was 19 weeks pregnant. It has been painful and uncomfortable and my OB and the urologist finally gave me their blessing to have it removed, which I did yesterday. It was supposed to stay in until post-partum, but it only got worse as baby started pushing (and kicking) down on my bladder more and more. I can’t wait to feel more normal again within the next day or so.
I’m just feeling so thankful to my husband and mom especially who have been super awesome over the past (almost) 3 months. Other family members and friends have been great too. I had to work from home, and even then I hardly left my couch. I’m really looking forward to going out for walks around my new neighborhood and enjoying the beautiful autumn weather. Maybe I’ll even be able to run a little bit too.
Rest has definitely been a priority the past week, which is fine. The body needs rest! Stay tuned to see how I do and the workouts I do going forward 🙂
I know everyone says this, but really, where has the summer gone?! With being semi bed-ridden I feel like I’ve missed out on the last month…but it’s ok, since I’ll be getting a very precious reward in the winter 🙂
I did some dumbbells workouts last week, coached CrossFit on Saturday and then worked out on Sunday (barely). I’m doing lots of arm stuff which should come in handy for carrying a babe and all his stuff! Stuff that I just added to a few registries this weekend- Pottery Barn Kids, Baby’s R Us, and Amazon. It was pretty exhausting especially since it’s a whole new ball game for me.
Did you guys get some good LDW shopping done? I went to the mall with one very excited soon-to-be grandma who bought lots of cute clothes for baby at Bloomies. I also bought a gorgeous light pink dress from Maje which I might wear to my baby shower (courtesy of Mom) I also bought my Goddaughter Alexia some accessories for her upcoming baptism. Online, I took advantage of Baublebar’s sale and also scored a cute gold, Henri Bendel clutch. It was a successful shopping weekend indeed!
I’m planning to do a light and easy workout tonight at home. My body is feeling very exhausted since I’m now not sleeping very well through the night :/ I caught myself daydreaming about running earlier today. At this point it might not happen until after my delivery, but it’s ok, a girl can daydream!
Did you do a particularly fun or tough workout this weekend? What about shopping- did you score anything great from any of the sales?
