Aha! That's Why My Scale Won't Budge!
Sunday, October 10, 2010
For the past month or so, no matter what I have done, I haven't been able to get my scale to drop. I've been logging every bite of food that has been passing my lips. I had been working out, and even started doing the couch to 5k. Nada. I was drinking lots of water, watching my salt intake, pretty much everything that I could possibly think of doing. Still nothing.
Then this past week, I started feeling really blah. I wasn't able to sleep well, which I figured was because my husband is back on rotating shifts, and so my normal routine gets outta whack as well. Then on Thursday, I was feeling sick. I just wanted to spend my day on the couch and stay there. Wasn't really hungry, and nothing sounded remotely appetizing.
When I finally got up to get something to eat, I bashed my knee in the corner of my coffee table. Ouch. Nice bruise and scratch right now on that. Then it clicked. Could I be pregnant???? Nah.... Maybe??? lol
The knee bash was the dead giveaway for me. Pretty much as accurate as a test from a store for me, but I went out and bought a few, and yup, I'm pregnant. Yay! All my kiddos have been "surprises" so I suppose that's why I never think of that possibility until I'm sick. lol
We are very excited, of course. I'm still going to use all I've learned and intend to watch what I eat and still exercise. I'm not going to continue my c25k right now though, because I am very very clumsy while pregnant, and with our roads around here, and it's just not a great idea, but I'll continue working out on my gazelle and going for walks.
This week I'm hoping to find a doctor. Never liked the one that I had the last time I was pregnant. I'm determined to find a good one this time. :)
