It’s Day 4 of the 12 Days of Mommi Holiday Giving and today we are featuring another Military Mom, Michelle Greensides. A dedicate runner, her friend Sara J. Goguen used instagram to tell us all about Michelle who is Sara’s #Bestie, loving wife to James, proudly serving in the Royal Canadian Military Airforce, Mom to Jack—and #Mom-to-be (with an arrival date of Feb 3rd) to baby boy #2.
In BFF’s Sara’s words: “Michelle had hypermesis with her first pregnancy and was hospitalized at 9 weeks. After, that baby Michelle lost at least 30 lbs., got herself six-pack of abs and then ran a half-marathon…little did she know when she ran her half marathon she was already preggers with baby number 2. The hyperemisis returned but that did not slow this mama. She continued to run(with the the okay from her Dr) until 26 weeks.” We’ve heard so much about the agony for those moms that experience hyperemisis bravo Michelle for finding the strength to continue your running!
Michelle tells her story here: “I’m a military wife, stay at home mom to a toddler Jack, and 33wks pregnant. I ran my first half marathon when I was unknowingly 5wks pregnant, and kept running until I got to 26wks. I ran over 300km’s while pregnant and 9 races. Also, when I was 4.5mths pregnant Jack had a freak accident while playing on the sofa. One day he slipped off the edge and dislocated 2 vertebrae in his c-spine. Jack spent 7 days in a children’s hospital in spinal traction and 2 long months in a hard collar while he healed.
We are finally getting back on our feet and ready to welcome our second boy but it has been extremely hard doing all of this while stationed away from family! Big thanks to MommiHealth for bringing awareness and discussion to the forefront.” Ahh thanks Michelle, we at #Mommi know how important nutrition is for pregnant Moms and especially critical for those Moms that want to continue their fitness routines. And so happy little Jack is on the mend.
