Wow, I’m 21 weeks pregnant, and just had the best week of running. Right after my last post, the round ligament pain went away almost completely (still wearing support belt every run) and I’ve been feeling so wonderful. I mean, I’m not breaking any records, but I’m just feeling so good and energetic on my runs. I’ve been doing about 5 miles a day this week. Then I follow that with no belly pain at night. All great stuff!
In other news, after having to reschedule and rearrange (we’ve been out of town a lot) we finally had our gender ultrasound. We found out Baby Bigham #2 is a BOY! He’s a crazy little guy who moves around all day and night. I’m not sleeping much because he moves so much and because I’m not supposed to sleep on my back anymore (after 16 weeks it’s recommended to sleep on your side, preferably left side). Normally, I sleep flat on my back, no pillow, arms down at my side or crossed over my ribs. I usually don’t move all night. Now I toss and turn thanks to the uncomfortable side sleeping position and baby kicking. I could do without the side sleeping, but I wouldn’t change the baby movements. I love feeling him move!
I’ll end there for tonight, but thinking my next few posts will be on some or all of these topics:
Inner dialogue while pregnant – What will running be like after I give birth…again? – Motivation – All my running friends are rocking it – Looking back through old training & improvements – Running history – Marathon history – Future racing – Some cool new (or new to me) running blogs
How’s your week (running or otherwise) going?
Anything you want to read about while I’m pregnant and not talking speedy, frequent, racing?
