Pre-pregnancy selfie on a workout day
Pregnancy selfie on a workout day
I went on a walk yesterday. This is a notable event for multiple reasons. First of all, I hate walking by myself. I talked about that here and here. I was really proud of myself for getting out - ALONE - and walking 2 miles. However, the second reason this was a notable thing was that I was dehydrated. The strain of exercise on my body plus lack of water in my system led to lots of mild contractions (which almost caused a pee-pants situation) and some really swollen hands. The contractions felt like weak-sauce period cramps, so I'm not worried that I'm sending myself right into labor, but I'm savvy enough to recognize when my body is sending me a message. If I don't have enough water, my baby might not be getting enough, either. Then there's the swollen hands thing. Mostly, my fingers just swelled and got really taut (almost itchy), and I think that happens either from a high-sodium diet or from dehydration, so it made sense. My poor sausagey ring finger could hardly stand my wedding ring. I had to run my hands under cold water for a good three minutes in order to squeeze the ring off.
Lesson learned: Drink lots of water!
Anyway, I'm really excited for today's giveaway. Four of my awesome sponsors decided to put together this giveaway for the month of April, and I think you guys will love the prizes!
