19 weeks! We had our big ultrasound on Friday. We debated back and forth about whether to find out the gender. We found out with the other two and at the last minute resolved not to find out, but we’d both study the image on the screen to see if we could see something 🙂 Baby booboo looks amazingly healthy and everything looks great. There was a slight concern about the structure of the amniotic sac at our 12 week scan so my midwife advised to lay-off the harder running. But with this latest scan I’ve been cleared to do whatever I want (within reason of course!) So I snuck in some strides on Saturday. I was hesitant to race because of that too, so might jump in something in the next few weeks for fun.
I’m sure you already know it was hotter than balls this week in these parts. I was able to get out super early on July 4th with my husband home and he took Friday off too so I was able to sneak out early then as well. So even with the incredible heat indexes everyday I managed to run and only once on the mill. Oh, and I finally got another 50 mile week in the books. Operation Stay Kinda in Shape might actually have a chance at success!
