Since, I've gotten pregnant I've had to take a step back from running and doing any strenuous activity and I definitely felt how out of shape I am today. We went on a hike and my heart was pounding. At some points I felt cramping in my lower abdomen, but it wasn't too bad so I figured I could just keep going. After yesterday's ropes course, I was determined to participate in this social. I haven't really felt left out of anything until yesterday and I wasn't about to put myself in that situation since I had the choice.
 At this point I was already cramping, but luckily it stopped as soon as we 
started climbing. Weird how the easy downhill made me cramp but the climb didn't!

So basically, the goal of this hike was to protect an egg. Each team had to use all natural resources except for a long strand of yarn provided to protect an egg from breaking when thrown off a 15 foot cliff into a pond of water. Below are each teams finished products.

At the end of the hike I could hear my heart pounding in my right ear but I was just tired, not in pain from the baby or anything like that. I tried to motivate myself when I saw another pregnant lady farther along in her pregnancy than I am and thought, " If she can do it, so can I!!" But now that I think of it, I never saw her on that trail...

Even though I will probably not step foot into another hike before I have Alana, I'm happy to say that I was able to do it :) 
Special thanks to Bobby for taking care of me and helping me through the trail!!!
