Camping at 8 Months Pregnant

Filed under: General — mmrobins @ 10:53 pm

Kim, Ubu and I went camping at Siouxon Creek near Mt St Helens  this past weekend.  This was the first weekend in a while that Kim hasn’t had to request time off from work to get away on Sunday, so we had the whole weekend together.  The reason Kim’s not having to request time off is that she’s taking leave of work to enjoy the last month of pregnancy – by going off into the woods to sleep on the ground.

The hike and camp is something we’ve been wanting to do for a while, but the road was washed out last year. It’s in pretty good shape now. It’s a nice, easy kind of hike since there’s campsites within a 1/4 mile of the trailhead, and there’s not a lot of elevation gain. I carried in all the heavy equipment, making two trips in to do so. I was able to just overload my backpack on the way out and get it all in one trip.

Besides the nice, wooded trail there’s some waterfalls a few miles along. We hiked up to where Kim was comfortable on Saturday, and Sunday we hiked out to go see some other short trails with views of the mountain. I think we did over 10 miles worth trails in the two days.

Being pregnant didn’t present too many problems (mostly having to carry lots of pillows), and got us excited for figuring out how we’d be able to go hiking and camping with the baby once it comes.

  • Lucy threw an awesome baby shower for Kim and me yesterday. She could easily be an event coordinator. Thanks Lucy! #
