This summer, my husband and I have played together on a coed recreational sand volleyball team. Because of my work schedule, I’ve only been able to play three or four games all year. This past Sunday was the last chance I knew I’d have to play all year. But Floyd was really worried and didn’t think I should. I insisted that I’ve played while pregnant before, and I wasn’t going to give up the last game I’d be able to play in. Sure, no laying out or diving to hit the ball– leave that to my teammates… But darn it, I can still do it! And I got my way. He gave me some crazy eyes after I went to my knees for one hit. But I said “Hey. I’m fine. And the baby will be too!” It’s important for moms-to-be to exercise, and every book tells you to keep up with activities you would’ve done before you were pregnant, as long as it’s still comfortable for you. They also say don’t go crazy with it and try something you’ve never done before. To that end, I agree, and will hold to that! But as long as I feel good enough to be active, I want to be active. So Floyd will just have to grin and bear it. Lucky for him, summer is drawing to a close, and volleyball season is just about over. So outdoor activity will naturally slow down as the day baby Drake is due draws closer.
