Phew, I’ve had a whirlwind weekend. Saturday morning I attended the 3rd annual Breastfeeding walk in downtown Spokane. I didn’t see a distance anywhere, but assumed it would be a 5K. Or at least a mile….eh, not so much. It wound up being a walk from the big red wagon to the clock tour. If you’re not a Spokane native, that is roughly a quarter of a mile. Ha!
My sister-in-law Kimberly joined me, and we met up with Haily and her baby Liam. Hailey and I met via The Knot, way back in the day when we were planning our weddings. So even though it wasn’t the work out I thought I’d be getting, I was able to chat quite a bit about cloth diapering, daycare, breastfeeding, and pediatricians. Ahhh, I’m getting so close to learning “on the job,” rather than just speaking hypothetically about what I’ll do. Crazy.
Once I got home I decided I needed to put my workout clothes to good use and grabbed Rilo for a 2-mile walk around Audubon park. My favorite thing about walking? Pregnancy podcasts! I’ve been listening to the Pregtastic podcasts since I learned about them from Kath. Once they went on hiatus I was sad, but had quite the backlog to get caught up on. But lately the Pregtastic predesessor has taken over my iTunes: Preggie Pals.
Preggie Pals celebrates all things pregnancy and regularly hosts experts like lactation consultants, OBGYN’s, doulas, midwifes, and even Ina May Gaskin! My excitement for the podcast led to me becoming one of their featured bloggers! And today my first post, revolving around my past eating disorder and fears of gaining weight while pregnant, went live this morning! Check it out!
