Beginners and Beyond

No more marathon for me... I'm running for two now. (Read 459 times)

    I wondered why my runs have been so difficult lately.  I'm just so dang tired and I found myself... walking... at times.

     

    Then I wondered, "Shouldn't it be ttom by now?".  So I rustled around in my bathroom drawers for an unused pregnancy test left over from three years ago.  Usually I'm so eager to test that it's too early and I have to hold it up to a lighbulb, trying to see if there is a second line.  This time... a big ol' second line right away.

     

    I stood there staring at that test like it was a snake about to bite me.  Noooooo.  I'm training for a MARATHON!!!

     

    That was a few weeks ago.  Earlier this week I had an ultrasound and saw a teeny tiny baby with an itty bitty heartbeat.  Shy

     

    So baby # 7 is due in July.  Guess I won't be running Detroit in October!

     

    I still have no idea how this happened.

    Running for two.  Drinking for none.

                      When it's all said and done, no one remembers how far we have run.  The only thing that matters is how we have loved.

                              Crap....had my response all tee'd up and LRB swooped in.

                               

                              Congratulations! 

                               

                              And #7? yikes...I can't imagine.

                                Thanks, guys!  I really am thrilled.  My youngest is 2 (the oldest is 18) and at age 42 I thought my baby days were behind me.  That made me sad but I enjoyed having new goals and dreams.

                                 

                                I am bound and determined to stay active throughout this pregnancy.  My doctor has okayed running.  I've still been getting in 3 miles a day but I'm sooo tired.

                                 

                                Once this baby arrives I have GOT to figure out how this keeps happening.  Someone said it was sharing forks with my hubby.  At least, I think they said forks...
