So I have to tell you. Before I knew I was pregnant, I was

-getting 6-7 hours of sleep on a nightly basis
-running a LOT of miles - 5 days a week
-drinking coffee every single day without fail

I looked up the estimated date of conception and then looked at my training log.  Here are some snippets of things that I logged in the 3 weeks before I knew I was pregnant:

"I have blood in my urine..." (after a TWELVE MILE RUN)
"Blood in my urine again..."
"I am so freaking tired. Physically I am just wasted. Worked at the farm today and it was awful... "
"Just not feeling good overall. No complaints in particular...just unmotivated I guess. I rarely have that problem...."
"Easy 8 mile run. It was pretty close to 80 degrees, I was roasting. Water fountains were turned off at the lake for some stupid reason, so I didn't have hardly any water the last 3 miles...."
"14.6 mile run, got 6 hours of sleep last night..."
After a 14 mile bike ride to pick up the kids from daycare, in which the temperature was nearly 100 degrees, "My legs were DEAD and I was just so exhausted. I seriously almost cried trying to pull the kids up the hills."

All I can say is, it is a miracle that I didn't kill this baby before I even knew it existed. Wow!  


  1. I'm glad you found out in time to slow down a little--and please for you that this long-hoped-for pregnancy is proceeding normally.

  2. Yes, I am glad you are doing well and so is your lil' peanut. I can't run 12 miles on the perfect day, I can't imagine running while pregant. I could barely make it up stairs even in the beginning.
