When I told my parents I was starting a blog and gave them the reasons why, my dad suggested I go back and post my weekly pregnancy updates. I had documented each week of my pregnancy and sent out e-mails to family and close friends. He thought I should go back and post each of those weekly updates. I had typed the updates in Microsoft Word before sending them out because I wanted to save them. So adding them to my blog now will be really easy.
Due to the nature of this blog I will also be adding some posts about running during pregnancy. I kept notes on all the races I did and my daily runs. I figured the information would benefit me in a later pregnancy if I wanted to remember how I'd done things before. Maybe there are some expecting mommas out there who are runners and would benefit from reading about a momma who had continued to run during pregnancy. I searched for a blog like that when I was pregnant and never really found one. I wanted to see what other pregnant runners had done. It would solidify in my mind the fact that running while pregnant was safe. I also wanted an idea of how much and how fast was safe. I will share what I did and maybe that will help someone out there in the same situation I was.
I'm excited to read back over my "bumpdates" as I called them. Since my baby is laying here sleeping peacefully I can't think of many things I'd rather do than reminisce on our pregnancy, well other than go out for a run!
