Pregnancy has made me more scatterbrained and clumsy. I don’t know if it’s some legitimate symptom of pregnancy or just the fact that I am distracted with thoughts of Baby Mount, but I find myself bumping into things, forgetting things, and confusing things. I also do not think things through as thoroughly as I should at times.
Case in point:
Last night I decided I would go for a 30-minute walk around our neighborhood loop. It was relatively pleasant outside compared to some of the other nights we’ve had, and I was just itching for some exercise, so off I went. When I walked out the door, my watch said 7:40. Great, I thought, at 8:20 I’ll have my 30 minutes in.
Does anyone else see the problem with that math? I didn’t, until around 8:15. Then I realized that in fact my planned 30 minute walk was a 40 minute walk. By that time, I had already started my third loop around and so I just finished that loop and ended up walking 45 minutes instead of 30! I even jogged for 12 minutes, too!
I suppose in this case, my scatterbrainedness (look, I made up a word!) had a positive outcome in that I got more exercise than I intended. Let’s hope that trend continues. 🙂
