Resolutions

So I ovulated on Tuesday, the same day I got a super dark positive OPK in the morning. This is really good to know. After I start to bleed I’ll be better able to time when I pick up the internet jizz (before I get a positive result). Also thank you safe-search for letting me know I spelled it correctly by blocking all results.

I’ve finished weaning off of Ef.fexor. I had a super-bad headache for a few days, and I figured that was withdrawal (and I was grateful I could safely medicate with painkillers and that a newborn wasn’t having to go through it instead of me), but then Latte had a severe headache too, so it may have been a random head cold or something not related to medication? At any rate it was only a couple days, and I was able to work and wasn’t that disabled.

My legs finally feel back to normal so I did 15 minutes on the treadmill yesterday. It’s odd the more I exercise the better my legs recover quickly from previous exercise (I was rough after doing the 20 minute run until I did the stationary bike during my lunch break at work). BTW I never took more than a day to recover from a workout until I hit 30. 

I hope to get up to running for 30 minutes soon, since that will be pretty close to 3.1 miles. Is it bad that I still have a goal of doing a 5k this summer even if I’m pregnant? I think doing something like a half-marathon or being super competitive with a 5k would be bad, but just doing one for the sake of doing one should be okay even if I’m pregnant right? Of course knowing my luck, I could end up those pregnant women who gets horrible morning sickness and can’t do much.

    Great job on the running (and the ovulating? Lol)! I’m with you… It’s harder to recover from ANYTHING the older I get. Since I started running, my hips are sore in the morning pretty much every day. Stretching helps, but not totally. Yay for Tylenol!

    I keep reading that running is fine when you’re pregnant, but after everything we will have been through by then, I’m betting I’ll be walking. I was going to sign up for an Avengers 10k at Disneyland in a few months, but I’m hoping I’ll be pregnant by then and I know I’ll be too chicken to run 10k pregnant.

      I’m really impressed by your dedication, btw, I know I tried to run earlier this week and my legs were so sore I had to give up after a couple minutes.

  2. Word of advise plan you life as if your not going to be pregnant, otherwise you let go of a lot of your desires and if you do become pregnant you can always reevaluate.

      Very true. I don’t think I’d be up for a marathon even without pregnancy, a 5k is more my speed. I read an article about how marathons can be bad for your heart, I’m just going to stick with my 5k no matter what I think. 🙂 I didn’t mean to give the impression otherwise.

  3. My mom, who had a serious chronic illness and was never athletic, ran a 10k while pregnant with me. Oh, and I was a hard-won clomid baby.

    The only lasting effect has been making me feel seriously out classed in the pregnancy department.
