Why I stopped running during my pregnancy

Actually I stopped exercising all together, but let’s start at the beginning.

The journey so far

I found out I was pregnant sometime in May, day 36 of my cycle. I remember that clearly. At first I thought that was a nice change from my first pregnancy where I found out about it already two months pregnant. Yes, that can happen. Easily. Anyway, turns out it’s not so nice after all because it feels like the wait is that much longer. In my mind my first pregnancy lasted 7 months (plus the 10 day I was overdue), this one is going to last 8 months (hopefully without additional waiting).

Truth be told it would had been the same had I not taken that test. The sickness that followed almost immediately would have given up the news anyway.
