Starting to Feel a Little More Normal

Over the past couple of days, I've noticed that I feel slightly less nauseated and have fewer headaches than I did before.  I hope this is an indication that it's going to continue to get better as we slide into the second trimester.  I'm at 11 weeks right now - one more week to go before we're done with the first trimester!  My next ultrasound is January 28 (also my dad's birthday).  I'll be glad after that's over and we have new pictures of our bigger babies.  They are supposed to be about the size of limes. 

Luckily, the battery on our scale died, so I haven't been horrified by however much weight I've gained.  Ignorance is bliss.  I really need to get a new battery so that I can be sure I'm not taking in way too many calories.

I haven't been working out very much at all over the past month because I've felt so sick.  Over the past few days, I've started taking long, brisk walks (3-4 miles) and that feels good.  I'm still not sure about actually trying to run again, because the doctor recommended that I keep my heart rate below 140 (which isn't very high at all, considering I'm usually in the 160-170 range when I'm doing something aerobic).  I guess I'll be doing lots of walking.  I think a 70-year-old man ran by me today - made me feel like such a lazy bum with my "brisk walk".


  1. Note from an old guy.
    Just remember one thing about the 70 year olds who might pass you. They probably don't have great balance. A little trip from your toe could put them on their face in a hurry.

  2. I'll have to remember that next time. =)
