Just a "zebra" trying my best to live life to the fullest with EDS and POTS...and loving the ride.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Tuesday PT! 30 minutes of cardio, light strengthening, OMM…the usual…I forgot the prenatal cradle but I have it now! Next visit…
  • No other doctors…but I am very happy to report that I am sleeping better. So relieved…
  • I miss sweating. I have not been able to do anything intense since pregnancy…I’m getting excited to be able to sweat again after Baby J arrives.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I had ZERO appointments this week. ZERO. Craziness.
  • A few walks with Gru through the DARK neighborhood now that daylight savings time has come and gone. Not loving all of the darkness. Sigh…
  • Hit 30 weeks on Tuesday! 75% of the way there!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Acupuncture on Monday. Laying on my back that long was uncomfortable. Was one of the only sessions I did not fall asleep.
  • Physical Therapy was Tuesday. I had more energy this week than I have had the last few weeks, which translated in getting a great cardio session in. It is amazing the difference in energy I have, depending if I do PT on Tuesdays vs Thursdays. By Thursday, I am running on fumes.
  • Was at the hospital most of the day Friday for a family member’s surgery. Luckily, all went well, and we will know more results by Wednesday. Prayers up!
  • Walks, walks, and more walks with my sister’s dog. It’s forcing me to get out there and move, I guess : )

1.Medical Stuff:

  • 1 day of PT. My belly was feeling funny so we took it easier on the recumbent bike. I’m going to look into getting a prenatal cradle in the next week just to give my joints more support. Trying to be a proactive EDS’r as this babe gets bigger!
  • Had my glucose test, anemia test, dtap shot, and a heart rate and belly check yesterday with my OB. Things checked out really well. Keep cookin’ baby!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • PT on Thursday. So happy my OB said I can do electrical stim again. It helps calm down my first ribs that will not cooperate right now.
  • I saw my shrink on Tuesday. I made him prove that we met for an hour. It felt like 2 minutes.
  • Allie moved home last weekend and started her new job with long hours, so I’ve been walking Gru Gru each day. If only I had been doing this from the beginning of my pregnancy…it forces me to get my body moving.
