    Exercise After Baby!

    So I rode my bike yesterday and ran for the first time today. I accomplished two miles running and though it took me 21 minutes I feel great! I use Runtastic  to keep log of all of my activities and you can view my run to see what it looks like. I learned a couple of things while I am getting back to exercising. No matter how many kegel’s you do your bladder control is ummm well, you tinkle yourself. No other way to say it than to throw it out there!

    D Day! AKA Delivery.

    You have your bag packed, birth plan in hand, hubby has camera and his overnight bag, now waiting on baby! I started dilating on a Monday and did not have any real labor pains. I have read other mom’s tell their experience that they felt nauseated, had cramps and a laundry list of symptoms. I did not have any of this. I had, this baby is out of room, I can’t breathe and it is time! After seeing our Dr. early Thursday morning and instantly crying when she asked me how I was she agreed it was time. She sent me upstairs and the game was on! So I thought……
