Well, we got everything ready in the morning to close today. I felt particularily ill, which since my last post I have gotten full blown morning sickness. This is definitely not fun. It feels like the worst hangover of your life every single morning! I’ve wanted to call in sick every day, but I haven’t yet. I keep thinking what if it gets worse? Then I will run out of sick days. We drove over to Coon Rapids to where we were to sign all of the paperwork. We got to the Wells Fargo Building, and I was sick. They called us in, and the whole time that I was signing papers I wished I was back in bed. We finally got through the massive list when the VA appraiser called our realtor with some bad news… the water inspection didn’t pass, and there was too much lead in the water! So… after signing everything, we couldn’t close 😦 We drove back home, and I wanted to be in tears. I didn’t feel good, and all I wanted to do was move into my new house, and take a bubble bath. But now I had to go back to the studio, and take a shower 😦 They are supposed to install new filters and get back to us in a week or two! Hopefully we can close soon!
After trying to jog it out, I feel way out of shape! Now I had just started training for my Half Marathon in February, and have only gotten up to around 4-6 miles. That is really sort of pushing it. Then we had all of that snow at the end of February, and then everything melted and made a muddy mess, so I really haven’t been running as much as I would like to for my training with my Half Marathon.
I’ve talked to friends, and relatives, and even a doctor friend, if she suggests running, and they all say, if you’re already running, there is no reason why you shouldn’t keep running, but trying to increase my millage in 4 weeks seems a little strenuous to me. SO I am going to gracefully bow out of both of my Half Marathons, and take up walking. It really comes down to what do I feel most comfortable with? So far, since Saturday, I have walked a total of 4 miles. 2 miles each day. I took Monday off, as well as tonight I am sure, since I have other plans but I just wanted to verbally, put it out there on paper, or the screen in my case, that I have chosen not to push anything!
During the next few months I will have a lot of things going on with the Marathon that I work for, and I want to be at the top of my game for that, so that I am not on bedrest during the last few months, when we’re the busiest. I would rather take it easy now, so that I have the energy to perform my daily tasks… Perhaps next year I will sign up for a half marathon again, or maybe even a full one, to get back in shape 🙂
Well we’ve decided to post a blog, about our feelings, and experiences over the next 8 months. Some of you who will read this, don’t even know yet, so we’re going to log everything down, so that you can read back. If you’re not sure what we’re talking about read on….
In February, Jason and I decided to start trying to make a family. Some people said it would take many months for me to get pregnant, others said it might even take a year! Well earlier in March, I noticed my eye sight went south, in my left eye, and most of you know, and I had to have an MRI.
Meanwhile we were about to accept the final counter offer from a seller, at our soon to be new home in the northern suburbs. Well we decided to wait on the counter offer until we got my MRI resutls back.
Well on Tuesday March 13th, I had my MRI, and by 5:25 I recieved the good news that my Brain and eyes were completely unremarkable, which basically means it was normal! This was the best news ever. I called Jason, and he scheduled our Realtor to come out taht night. So by 8:45 we had signed the counter offer, and made it pretty much official (of course the VA/Appraiser has to approve it, but there shouldn’t be problems).
Well after our Realtor left I decided, I definitely needed a shower after a long day, and get ready for bed. Well by now I was already a week and a half late for my period, so I took a pregnancy test, and it was positive!!! I typed in my LMP on the computer for pregnancy calculators, and I was already almost 5 weeks along! We will be due November 16, 2007!
No wonder why I have been so darn tired! I was really begining to wonder why I was completely whipped out from running even shorter distances, and why after work I wanted to go right to bed! No other major symptoms. At times I feel a slight wave of nausea, although I am only going into week 6 at the moment, so I am sure the symptoms will be exasperated in the weeks to come! Anyways, enough for now, its way past my bedtime. Good night…
