Ugh, skipped the gym again this morning! Even one of my favorite MissFits classes! I’m feeling like a bum cause I won’t work out again till Wednesday. I feel like my muscles literally just waste away when I go this long without the gym. But I do have a good reason this time. I didn’t go to bed till after midnight last night, and then I woke up at 4am with vertigo for the first time ever. I got up to pee and felt fine, but as soon as I laid back down, the room started spinning like crazy. Then I got nauseous from it. Then I couldn’t sleep. I sat on the couch for two hours watching TV (and not moving at all) before I slowly lowered myself onto the pillow in hopes of keeping the vertigo at bay and was able to fall asleep.
The vertigo seems better now, but I was worried when my alarm went off at 9am that position changes would trigger it (which happens with vertigo) if I went to CrossFit, so I decided against it. If I get vertigo at the gym like I did this morning, there’s no way I can drive myself home. I’m just thankful that holding still and sitting up seemed to put it at ease this morning, cause I have patients with vertigo who are just absolutely miserable.
Oh, the fun things in pregnancy. Except there are fun things about pregnancy. Like feeling Jackson move for sure. Saturday night, he was moving like crazy. I’ve felt the little blubs in my lower belly on two different occasions where I thought it was him moving (but at the time, I was still hoping he was a she), but it was over so fast that I didn’t even have time to figure out if it was him. But Saturday night, he went crazy in there. Even Jon could feel him from the outside (I assume because I’m so thin). I’m assuming I only feel the big movements, but it’s definitely him. And last night, at the same time as Saturday, he went crazy again and it was even bigger than the night before. It actually makes me jump cause it scares me when it comes out of nowhere while I’m concentrating on the TV or something. It’s weird. But it’s pretty cool that I can feel him, even though I wasn’t expecting to for awhile longer and I definitely didn’t think Jon would be able to feel him for way longer. I even kind of love it. Now, if he would just stay in there and be my belly baby for life, and then I could still travel and do all the fun things I want!
The rest of this weekend was a great one! I seriously had the best weekend that I’ve had in a long time! I woke up around 8 on Sunday morning and Jon came in to cuddle with me (he usually sleeps on the couch cause he hates our bed). We relaxed till 10, and then I got up and got ready to go to Kassie’s to meet up with her and Gina!
We got to Kassie’s around noon and decided to go get brunch at Silver Skillet in Atlanta. My egg and cheese biscuit was delicious, but honestly, it was basic diner food and the service was terrible, so I don’t know that I’d ever recommend that place again. Atlanta has some serious brunch places (thankfully cause I love brunch- but Atlanta really is a brunch city) and that didn’t make my list despite a really yummy biscuit. We headed over to see The Intern afterwards and it was a cute movie! It wasn’t amazing, but it kept me entertained and I liked it! We also went to DSW after that and I had a dilemma about buying shoes while pregnant, because I’ve heard so many stories about feet growing in pregnancy. So I held off but will probably return (that DSW didn’t have my size anyway) and buy boots anyway. I’ll need a lot of boots since I’m sure maternity jeans won’t fit my 12 year old sized pregnant body and I’ll be stuck in leggings 24/7.
Jon and I made pork chops and broccoli for dinner last night and he gave me a wonderful foot massage and we watched the new Nashville together. And did laundry and did dishes. Of course.
This is my last day off before it’s back to work tomorrow! I’m going to run to a cupcake place today and get cupcakes for my gender reveal “party” (I use quotations cause it’s three of my best friends getting together for this and it’s not a party) and make some chili (in the crockpot, it’s not hard). I also need to check all my online school stuff since I know we should have stuff due this week but nothing was posted yet last night. And most of all, I’m just crossing my fingers that this vertigo stays away so I can actually have a productive day. If I feel okay later, I may run to LA Fitness to at least get in some sort of workout.
