The Ker Marathon

Let me tell you a little bit about the kind of exercise that gets my heart rate right up there.  I walked down the little lane that leads to the communal mailbox...this is really not very far.  I was pushing Jenna in the stroller, so okay, that's some extra weight there.  We got back, and I then walked up the stairs to grab a short-sleeve shirt (it was gorgeous, gorgeous weather today)...and BAM.  I actually had to lay down on the bed for a few minutes because my heart was racing so much.  I was just exhausted from all of that.  Well, give me a break.  Can I have my own body back yet?  Please?  It's not that I want all the sleepless nights with a squalling newborn, but...hey, give me some love, prego peeps.  You know what I'm talking about.  :)

Just a little over three weeks...hang in there, Ker!  You can do it! 

By the way, if you come to the blog looking for anything non-baby-related, there ain't gonna be much in the next little while.  :)

Obviously, I can totally relate. The slightest excursion causes my heart to pump, I get light headed and I most certainly need to lay down.

The odd thing is, when I go to the Y and work out on the elliptical machine there, I'm pretty good. But I stretch first, then I work up slowly, then I cool down, then I stretch again.

But if I walk up the stairs in my house, I need to take a 5 minute break afterwords! :-)

I, too, am ready for my body back.
