Yup, Baking

So as most of you now know, my secret is that Jeeves and I are expecting. It explains the fatigue and lethargy as well as the sudden and constant runny nose. That will continue until about 2 hours after the baby comes. then it will clear up and I'll be happy.

I'm not barfing, but I feel gross and queasy all the time. But from what I've read after you hurl you still feel gross and queasy, so I figure I'm coming out ahead because I don't have to carry a toothbrush/mouthwash around with me all the time.

When I ran the 5K on the 4th of July, I was pregnant. I had decided to run in an 'event' once a month but with the PG status and the Missouri heat wave I decided against it for July. I don't want to risk my health. Call me a pansy but jogging is supposed to fun, not concussion inducing. I feel like running in 90 degree weather (cause it's 90 degrees and it 9am) would be dangerous for anyone, and I'm dizzy and nauseous. Therefore, Pansy am I none, because I have a 5K planned in September and a 10K in October.

Next week I have every intention of getting back to the gym and on the treadmill, and back to Zumba classes. I've missed them and the exercise will not only help my energy level but will help in the long run with maintaining a healthy weight during this pregnancy. I am going to stay under 200 pounds. The doc says I can keep my calories at 1800 unless or until, my blood-work shows that my body is not getting the right amount of good stuff. At 175, I only 'have' to gain between 15 and 20 pounds, and I will likely lose a few in the next few weeks, provided I can stay away from Sonic.

Now that everyone knows the secret, I can show you my sewing projects, I've been altering garage sale clothing into super comfy and stylish maternity wear to supplement the wardrobe I had left over from having the munches. I will have Jeeves help me take some photos and post them so you can see the awesome ideas I've found on some of the cool mom-to-be blogs.

Don't feel like you have to go crazy with the running either - if you like it, fine, but it's not the end-all be-all. I found this chick's podcasts and LOVE HER:
She's super no-nonsense and I love her for it. I felt like I :had: to run, it was the most efficient exercise, etc. Now, not so much. I may do it once in a while when the weather cooperates, but for now I found some tapes that really kick my butt.
I just never got that sense of accomplishment other people seemed to get from running. I just got sweaty and sore boobs. More power to the people that like it though!

Well THAT answers my question, after your comment mentioning pregnant Ninja cravings on my blog, LOL. Congrats, girl! And yes, as soon as I have a reasonable peanut butter pound cake with chocolate ganache recipe, I'll chuck that sucker your way.
