I miss running...

So it's been at least four months since my last entry and my life has changed never before! Currently, I am 29 weeks pregnant and my little BOY :) wants to run too! He kicks so much, which makes me smile and I know that they are only going to get harder and stronger!

When we went in for our ultrasound at 21 weeks, the sonographer, Kua, said that this little guy must be runner because he has great CALVES! :) Can you believe that?? If I counted the number of times people commented about Chris' calves, I would be rich! Chris and I just looked at each other and laughed! It is definitely our kid! :)

Well I will try to be better at writing...but the title of this one is that I miss running. I miss the way I feel after a hard run, I miss sweating, I miss my therapy sessions that I get when running, I miss how my digestive system works when I run, I miss my tone legs/arms/stomach, I miss my self confidence in doing something difficult, I miss pushing through, I miss...

I could go on and on...I ran for 8 minutes on Friday and after going 2.5 miles in 35 minutes, I had my first real contraction. It was the weirdest feeling I have ever had. I had to stop in my track and just pray it would pass. There weren't any more in the hour and according to my doctor, if I have 5 or more, then I need to call the doctor. I DO NOT want to go into preterm labor and then put on bed rest...because then I would miss STANDING! :) So from here on out...walking and the eliptical machine will be my source of movement! :) Until next time...

About Me

My photo
The name of this blog was inspired by Kristin Armstrong's devotional book, Strength for the Climb. I am a midwest girl married to a handsome, hardworking, God-fearing man and the mother of two boys. My eldest son, a social butterfly that has enough energy and excitement to make anyone tired and a personality that will make you giggle with laughter. My youngest son, can cuddle like no other, and his eyes will speak right to your soul. Both of my sons have taught me more about God's grace and goodness. We are blessed to have an extra chromosome in our family as our sweet Jack was diagnosed at birth with Down syndrome. With that, I am reminded daily to trust and rely on God's perfect plan on this journey called life. I am a child of God and grateful to my Heavenly Father for His continued blessings, guidance, wisdom, and most importantly for saving my soul.
