21 weeks

21 weeks, woohoo offically over half way through! Lol. Current belly shot to the left (notice the gnarly veins! I am like a roadmap!). I had a great day. I joined a new gym and started the day off with a nice workout, weights and cardio. Running and I really aren't getting along right now. It's just already so uncomfortable for me to run. I feel like my belly is going to fall out my hoohah or something. Also I have to pee the whole time. I wonder if it has to do with my placenta pervia? For those who don't know, that means my placenta is below the baby, so it's lower than normal. The pressure when I run is just so distracting. I did 2 miles on the dreadmill and then jumped on the ET for another 20 mins.
I also went to a Xmas party today of my tri/running girlfriends. I got to meet my friend Salty's (blog is the LIttle one) 3 week old son. He is just gorgeous and she looked great. It was nice to get out and do something and so nice to talk to someone who just went through what I'll have to soon enough!
My baby is kicking constantly, it's so fun, but just odd to me how freaking active she is. Also, my back is really killing me. By the end of the day I just have to lay down, I can't stand it. I think I'm having sciatic nerve issues...I think? I have a prenatal massage this coming Sat. I can't wait.


Look how big little Fonzi is getting!

Thanks for the comment. I am almost 26 weeks and also have gained about 21 lbs. I don't have placenta previa but I am close (there was a name for it but I can't remember what it was). I am finding running very uncomfortable as well at this point and usually do a run/walk mix. I am getting a massage tomorrow and I can't wait!
