Day 91 - Starting the Third Trimester Today!

It's finally a beautiful day by the lake!  The wind switched during the night and after two days of fog and mist, it's a bright, sunny day.  It will be in the 70's, I plan to get outside and enjoy it!

I think I will do my run outside before heading to work.  Mike doesn't like it when I run early in the morning, thinking I will get kidnapped. I think the rule is I can't do it before 8 a.m.  It's 8 now though... so I think I will be o.k.  Plus, the street I run on is busy, there are plenty of people taking the bus to work, walking around, etc.  I appreciate it that he worries about me!  Hope it won't be too hot. Yes, I know I am a whiner, but I enjoy running in the cool basement with the fan blowing on me, and it's already 70 degrees outside.  I don't want to waste the gorgeous weather though so I better go for it. I will be sitting inside for most of the rest of the day!

Yesterday I wore some pre-pregnancy jeans I haven't worn in a while. Yes, they still fit, but they were NOT comfortable. LOL I wore my Be Band too and used it to keep them from falling down, you know how your belly tends to push your pants down? ; )  Well, it was really hot in the building at work (even though it wasn't outside) and I had those jeans on with shoes and socks. I don't know what possessed me, I guess I just thought since it was a crappy day so it would be cold everywhere!  Well, I was SO hot and uncomfortable. I couldn't wait to peel everything off.  The jeans felt like stiff, heavy denim and my feet were sweating : (  As soon as I got home, I changed into capris and it felt SO good!  No more of that.  Especially with the packing and everything I've been doing in my office - I just sweat too much.  The baby makes my body like a little furnace...haha  I also got some stomach pains after eating lunch, like I had eaten too much - even though all I had was a little bit of fruit (a handful of blueberries and raspberries), a small salad and a small burger (no bun) Mike had grilled the night before.  My stomach felt ENORMOUS after I got done eating.  I could hardly sit in my desk chair and kept shifting around trying to get comfortable.  Seriously, I am going to further scale back the portion sizes because my stomach can't hold it.  I didn't eat again until I got home and it wasn't much. I don't know what the deal is.

Today I start my third trimester.  I had written this date on my calendar at work, thinking WOW that seems so far away... and here it is! I am two-thirds done.  Only 90 days or so til the baby gets here. Of course, impatient me is hoping for an early delivery, but we will see.

However, at the moment, I am feeling GREAT! I am not tired like I was yesterday morning, it looks like a gorgeous day, and I need to get off the computer and get outside!
