  • I'm not proud of the fact that I'm averaging more weight gain per month than I am the equivalent number of blog entries
  • I've realized (again) that I only come up with good blog posts when I'm running
  • I tipped the scales at 150 today
  • I didn't shed one tear
  • When women say "I gained 35 pounds during my pregnancy" are they referring to the weight gain shown on the doctor's scale, or the one at home - because they are drastically different these days
  • I registered for a marathon - the inaugural Savannah Rock n Roll Marathon scheduled for November 2011
  • I'll be 35 at that point so I'm excited that I'll get to shave five minutes off of my BQ time
  • Because I plan on becoming a BQ qualifier in November 2011
  • We started to be able to feel body parts moving around in my belly this week
  • Up until now, it was just random stabs here and there but now we can actually tell that we are touching a foot or a hand or a rear end or something
  • I vow to tell every pregnant woman I see that she is so cute pregnant
  • Even if she isn't
  • I miss bending over
  • I miss crossing my legs
  • I miss an icy cold beer
  • I'm still having a million tests (or so it feels like it) to determine if my body is going to harm hers
  • So far, so good
  • I'm thankful everyday now that I know I won't be passing this on to her
That's it.

P.S. I can tell, by the short entries above, that I spend entirely too much time updating my status on Facebook....

That's awesome that you signed up for a marathon for next year. I think that's an awesome goal for you. I am so excited for you that you are reaching the finish line with your pregnancy. I gained 40 lbs with my 1st and only 19 lbs with my 2nd and 3rd. I am glad that you are embracing the weight gain.
