6:30 AM: Weight Training – COMPLETED
I woke up pretty early today to prepare some Chili in the slow cooker. I haven’t used my slow cooker in awhile, so it needed a good dusting off.
I’m having dinner tonight at a coffee shop with one of my girlfriends from Girls on the Run. She is a runner and 16-weeks pregnant. I can’t wait to catch up with her. In any event, since I know I won’t be home for dinner, I had to figure out what P would be eating for dinner. Yes, I can’t leave him without food… So, I kept going back and forth, thinking, “what will I have time to make in half an hour?” Finally, I figured, I’m just going to have to put something in the slow cooker. It worked out well because he actually wanted some chili.
It’s really a simple recipe. All I have to do after work is break out the rice cooker and make some rice.
Last night, I was having some major Round Ligament Pains. It happened around 2pm, but went away after a few minutes. After, it kept coming back, off and on. There was a point when I thought something was wrong. P kept reassuring me that all was well and baby was just growing so it was stretching of the muscles and ligaments. I know I’ve read it, but i was starting to worry a bit. So I did what the book said, elevated my legs and rested. I drank lots of water and slept on my left side. It was still there from time to time when I would wake up to pee. It finally subsided when I got up at 6am. I’m sure it’s nothing to worry about, as they say, some worry signs are symptoms that accompany the pain, which are fever, chills, bleeding or lightheadedness. I think I might call my OB just to feel 100% better. I’ll keep you updated on what she reports back to me. Again, I’m sure it’s nothing to be concerned about. I guess I’d feel better if I consistently felt baby moving.
