365 ONE: day 233…Falling Apart List

Day 233: August 28th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!!!

Anything to Note =

I tried to speed walk yesterday and again today, but failed.

I did wear my maternity belt though for the first time in a long time while I walked as I keep forgetting. So yeah, one point for me there, but, in terms of trying to speed walk, I get a minus one. I just could not do it.


I tried to speed walk but my tendons were just so painful. They are so tight that there was no way to keep up my pace.


So now I can add that to my joyful pregnant “I’m falling apart” list…

– backache
– wrist pain
– right arm elbow joint pain that I had to modify my push-ups
– I can’t and don’t sleep
– swollen feet
– hands swollen so much that I am afraid to wear both rings now

And that list goes on and on…

…but I can now add…

– painful tendons in my legs 😦


Also…possibly also something to do with maybe Braxton Hicks contractions?? They say that you have these going on for a while but may not necessarily always feel them…I don’t know. I’ve got something going on that’s either that and/or pressure that causes pain – Weird!

There’s definitely some big shifting going on now “in my belly” (said in Austin Powers style)…soooo tired haha! But yeah, I can feel and see some stuff going on. It’s high up near my ribs and either from a head, hands or foot action. And it stays there for a while as a hard bulge! What is he doing in there???!!!

You little schmonkie you!! Thank you for my falling apart list!!

365 ONE: day 170…Maternity Belt

Day 170: June 26th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!

Dance of the Day was = “In The Music” by Deep Sweeng

Anything to Note =

I wore my maternity support belt to walk today – I actually remembered!

I have worn it once already to go on our mini hike up at Lake Placid this past weekend but it wasn’t for long as we got rained out.

It feels like I am strapped in…but I don’t know. I still have that pain that feels like a stitch on my lower right side. I’m sure its better for me than having the gravity pull down from my belly – I can imagine it being better for my back too. I think its good for my walking/exercise use. If I can remember to put it on!!

It’s funny as I walked past a storefront and caught myself in the reflection and had to double take! The belt under my belly makes me look HUGE!! It lifts up my belly as the belt is below it!


I definately felt pregnant today after seeing that reflection.

Not sure how I feel about that!
