Back to reality

Hi Bloggy friends. Back from vacation, you can read a recap over at We had fun and I made it through the half marathon 14 weeks pregnant. Not bad right?!? I felt totally fine most of the time, but I did have some tenderness at the bottom of my stomach afterwards, I'll definately be cutting the long run distance down now.

Feeling pretty good. I have a check up on Thursday. My mom is coming to stay with us for Halloween so she is going to go with me and meet my doc. I am for sure out of the first trimester fog now, thank god. But everynight I wake up around 3ish with the most painfully full bladder. So I get out of bed and got sit on the toilet and nothing happens! I have to push and a little stream will come out and then eventually I will be peeing. Is that normal? It hurts a little at first and once my bladder is empty it still feels a bit sore. I had a bladder infection around 8 weeks and took some antibiotics, so I don't think it's that....wierd though.

It's probably just lazy bladder. I definitely have that going on and have had it for so long I can't remember when it started! From what I've read, the relaxin causes the bladder and other stuff to slack off so it's hard to get all the pee out a lot of the time--that's one of the reasons why preggos are more likely to get uti's.

I had the tenderness when I ran the half a couple weeks ago at 21 weeks, but also I was having other pains while I was running so who knows. But I think that was some muscle soreness/ligament stretching, I felt it most of the next day too. Hope you had a good vacation - you look great - doesn't look like you have put on any weight at all, sooo skinny!!!
I definitely go to the bathroom when I'm running and nothing comes out, but haven't had that in the middle of the night, it is usually coming out full throttle. At least 1-2 times in the middle of every night!

ahhh, peeing...i think i got a break around 20-26 weeks. but yeah, that sounds familiar...i never know if i "really" have to pee or not, it feels the same whether it's a false alarm or not!
