Pathetic

Friends, I can eat again!  And, more than that, I actually like eating!!!! I am also free to move about.  Except, well, things have changed.

Take a few nights ago.  A good friend had us over for pizza and afterwards we played a few games on the Wii.  After watching my husband battle it out with my friend’s husband, I decided to give tennis a try.  Just one match; easy as eating pie (a favorite pastime of mine).

The next day, I couldn’t move my arm.  Seriously, who gets sore from playing the Wii? Or from walking down the street?  And, who huffs and puffs when they walk up two stairs?  Holy Moses, what has happened to my fit body?

Ah, I didn’t move for 10 weeks.  I guess I lost more than weight, I lost all my muscle tone.

Luckily, I can build that up, along with my old personality.  It feels great to smile, laugh and joke with my husband again.  Not to mention spending time with my kids.  I have missed them tremendously!

Now that my previous self is returning, I think I’ll go run a marathon!  Or watch one on TV while eating apple pie and ice cream.  Hey, I’ve got a hungry, growing baby to consider.

    Great news! So glad you’re feeling better!

  2. Awesome! Hooray for apple pie, ice cream, and movement. Even if it leaves you sore.

  3. Yay! How exciting! 🙂 So happy you’re finally starting to feel better… You deserve being able to eat and enjoy your husband and kids after all you’ve gone through!

  4. No, seriously. I couldn’t MOVE for two days after first playing tennis on the Wii. It seriously uses muscles that you don’t use in daily life.

    So happy you are feeling better.

  6. So glad you’re feeling better!

  7. Yea! Apple pie and ice cream were my favorite induldgence when I was pregnant. Heck, even when I am not pregnant too… 🙂

  8. I am so glad you’re feeling better. I always thought pregnancy was hard, but yours sounded intolerable. Sigh of relief.

  9. Ok so I stumbled across your blog through Google Images. I was searching for a cool image of Diet Dr. Pepper for my recent blog post and somehow ran across a picture of your daughter. I clicked on it because she looks almost identical to mine! An older version of course, (mine is almost 18 mos) but it was freaky! I was scrolling down, and looked over and thought I saw Lennox! It was just too crazy not to tell you. Also, I read a couple of your posts and your About Me. Congratulations on your pregnancy!!! I had hyperemesis gravidarum when I was pregnant with Leni and it was hellish. I was even throwing up when I was in labor. Zofran and Phenergan were my best friends. Praying for you!

    P.S. I requested you on FB. Hope I got the right account!

  10. Oh Amber! Sooooo glad to hear this news. I’ve been thinking about you so much.
