Big Changes coming!

Thursday, February 13, 2014


Since my last blog, I ran one more half marathon in November - it was a brutal experience, a cold snap left me quite unprepared for the temperatures that day and I also felt I got injured, but was able to recover well after a massage at the chiropractor.

Then in December more exciting things happened.....

And then I was keeping mum because....

I'm now over 12 weeks pregnant. :)

YEP! Sadly my fitness and nutrition are completely out the window right now. I've been going on very short runs occasionally, when I felt like the nausea and fatigue were light enough and the conditions outside weren't terrible. (So much ice going on here for a while.) Speaking of which I slipped on some ice a couple days ago... so dumb. But everything tells me I should be fine, baby should be fine, including my doctor's triage nurses that I called. *phwew* No cramping or bleeding. Guess I just have to wait for my next appointment and keep thinking positively. No reason to think anything's wrong, just you know - paranoia. hahaha :D I didn't land on my abdomen or anything, it was a butt fall, right side only - my poor right butt cheek and right hand.

I also somehow strained my left hamstring apparently. :P This week I've been really sick feeling - like beyond nausea, a virus involved I think. Congestion, headache, sore throat, etc. No fever so I'm just toughing it out, drinking lots of fluids.

But anyway - I've got a few pictures from the last scan!

Still eating mostly vegan, sometimes eggs - trying to make sure I get plenty of protein and I'm taking my vitamins. Gluten free is going well, too. Finding more options for various things which is cool - like I found some bread I can buy at a local store that is like real bread! hahaha :D But still trying to mostly eat things that are less processed but it's hard with the nausea, I have to just eat the only thing I can imagine stomaching. :P

Due date is August 24th - I will try to blog more frequently!!

P.S. - I can't believe I forgot to post my announcement video here - thanks, SEPPIESUSAN for reminding me! haha! :D

    Such an exciting times. I think it is a great time to learn to listen to your body. I did that with my last one. I had a good eating plan and had a great pregnancy as far as sticking with my health goals. What is good for you is also good for the baby. Congratulations and best wishes. If you have any questions or concerns you want to talk about you know where to find me.

    Awwww look at that little peanut! So cute. Congratulations Dana - this is so exciting! I found that exercise & nutrition were more "do-able" for me well into the 2nd trimester, and the 1st trimester I just focused on rest. I would sleep 12 hours a night! Anyway, so happy for you. Keep us updated if you are able. PS my due date with my daughter was Aug 22 - great month! Liz
