Last weekend, our good friend Matt traveled out from Tucson and we hit Palm Canyon, once again. I’m now 7 months along, so it was quite a ride!
I’m blaming it on the pregnancy brain, but I totally forgot my wingnut at home and put my new cleats on backwards!! Fortunately, the guys had enough food and drink to go around – plus, I’m carrying this growing kid (weighing in at 2lbs 5oz the week before) and all the extra padding for him!
I decided, at the end of this ride, that it was my last long one. I feel like I’m going into a tough home stretch where the kid is taking my energy again and the weight is taking it’s toll on my back. I’ve already gained over 20 lbs and it’s only starting to pick up now. He’s constantly kicking and moving (at the last ultrasound, we saw him punch my bladder!!) I think, with all this movement, is a happy and thriving, developing kid.
What an exciting time!
