    DaemonCorax becomes less round (incubating pt. 6)

    You have guessed correctly. The tiny one and I had some trouble, but he came yelling into the world via c section early Saturday morning after 34 hours of labor. He doesn’t seem to hold the long process against us though, and is doing wonderfully.

    Still pregnant. Bouldering this morning helped things feel less stiff. He was really hurting my belly yesterday evening, so I didn’t feel like lifting heavy. MFH took this photo of me the second time I went through. I could turn the corner up to the vertical part 2 green hold up, but we had a fun 45-60 min gym session. (I do recall someone here having trouble visualizing me climbing 3 months ago. Lol. This is what it looks like now XD. )

    Well, not on the topic of fitness (although I did walk from my house and around the lake this morning, mayeb 2 mi total?) My mom sent me this: The last one I think is going to be spot on. 10 moms define motherhood in 100 words The last one is: "Motherhood is like that one dream you had when you were 16 where you have this big test at school in history. You study for weeks about the American Revolution, but when you get to your chair you find out that the test was actually in math. So now you’re stuck trying to figure out the square root of an elephant multiplied by the weight of a neutron star and it isn’t until after the test is over that you find out the answer was Purple. –Malinda Ruzicka Carlson" Thanks for all the support and positive words, especially from the parents on here. It's been really nice to hear from you. If I'm still pregnant tomorrow, it will be a normal gym morning.
  4. So this challenge crosses my due date on May 15th. So somewhere in here I get to go from being 1.5 humans to 1 human with a very cute sidekick. Wish me luck! Goals? Hahahahahaha. Make it through. We'll see. I'm still making it to the gym to lift twice a week. I'm trying to sleep and drink water. I'm seeing a therapist for mood disorders to try to get some outside support. I just had a "handoff" meeting at work to make sure things don't fall through the cracks if I disappear. I'm trying to balance getting to my sister's wedding on the 27th with the risk and stress involved in doing so. I lifted yesterday. Copy from my last post in the old challenge: "Oh man. Two nights in a row of vividly deranged nightmares that had me little-kid scared and not wanting to put my feet on the floor. Last night it was so bad I got out my book light and read from 2-4 AM and STILL didn't sleep well afterwards. Got to the gym this morning and then returned home to work on my laptop. A nap may be in order. Front squat 45x5, 75 2x5, 80 x5 Dumbell row/tricep exercise 30 ea hand 3x6 OHP 45x5, 55 2x5, 60x5 (got a spot for that last set) Curls 25 ea 3x5 BS 135 2x5 150 x5 hangs/negative/shoulder things 3 sets between squats DL 155 x5, 185x5, 215x5 So the DL went up 5 lbs again I felt terrible this morning, but once I got into the swing of things, my body cooperated. The OHP was better today - I got a lot pickier about my range of motion and form at the bottom of the lift." So yeah. Here. We. Go.
