|I've given up on trying to take those "Look I'm pregnant & beautiful" pictures. Instead, this is my "keeping it real" picture. Days of severe nausea and lack of sleep has me looking worn out... but still happy & grateful for this little one.|
When I woke up this morning, I rolled over in bed and told Robert about a dream I had last night. In it, a whole bunch of professional runners were crossing the finish line at NYCM and as they crossed, they would all give birth. Kara cross the finish line, then gave birth. Shalane (who didn't even run NYCM!), Deena, and so on and so forth... as I watched them, I was insanely jealous. What does that mean?!? Lol. Nevermind, I know what it means. Robert was amused and then told me of his own dream in which we were holding a press conference in a room resembling ESPN. The topic? His baby beard. Reporters were asking if he planned to shave it once the baby arrives and he left them hanging. If you don't know what I'm talking about, check out this picture from the Runner's World instagram feed. The dude all the way to the left with the beard? My husband.

I guess what all this means is that we're both so ready to meet our baby. I'm going to do a whole lot of bouncing around this weekend, on my birthing ball, on the treadmill, maybe a walk in the park, maybe dancing. Which brings me to my gift to you for the weekend. I stumbled upon this video this morning and have watched it 5 times. Yes, it's that good. So in advance, you are very welcome.
Oh, I almost forgot... another gift! The November birthday coupon is on it's way to all you November babies this morning. Wishing you a very happy birthday month! If you haven't signed up for the coupon, here's the link
Hope you all have a spectacular weekend!!
