Only 10 weeks left and my lazy weekend activities will be a thing of the past.
The weekend was beautiful and I took advantage of it with hikes on Skyline and the Ridge as well as Animas Mountain. By Sunday evening, my lower back was killing me, but I felt great for have gotten in over 13 miles of hiking for the weekend. That’s a lot for the weight I’m carrying around with me these days.
Matt told me about the trail heading north from Skyline rather than south. It’s quiet on this side, so it’s become a go-to spot for me. I saw a lot of folks out on the trail on Saturday…Darian, Amy, Gretchen, a pack of Durango Cyclery riders on singlespeeds and gears, plus others.
Sunday was an Animas hike. I did the big outter loop, going clockwise this time. Lots of people out here too, mostly hikers, but luckily the trails allows people to spread out quickly so you still get some privacy.
I’m looking forward to biking this again! The view from the top is always quite cool.
I saw this creepy critter out on the trail while hiking…
Anyway, with only 10 weeks left before D(elivery)-Day, I was thinking I should start a countdown for the little one. She may be curious to know what the heck we used to do before she came into our lives. She’ll be shocked at how big I got carrying her little body around inside me for 40 weeks. I guess I can’t complain, I’ve heard that others get much bigger than I have, but I truly feel like I’m going to explode.
So, here it goes…10 weeks left and 32 pounds gained to date (30 weeks pregnant).
I feel like I’m going to explode. The craziest thing I hear from people is, “I can’t believe how small you are!” Are you freaking kidding me? Some people even know what I looked like before I got pregnant. I honestly can’t believe how big I am. While I’m thrilled to be toting around our daughter, I will be excited to get back to being me.
Lately I’ve been having fun guessing what the heck she’s doing in there when she’s kicking all over my belly. Seems she loves to flip around, stretch, and hiccup. She also enjoys waking me up throughout the night. Seems late night and early morning are her favorite times to be awake. I hope that’s not a sign of her sleeping patterns once she arrives!
