17w1d

Friday, February 15, 2013

Started this morning off with a 2 mile run (okay, jog... I was slow) and it was great!  At first breath, I thought "Damn, it's cold out here", but by the time I got going, it was just awesome and I was SOOO glad to finally be able and out there.  Wow.... 17w1d and walking- running- around... Who'd have thought...

I'm also pretty much a cravings wuss.  I left the house before dinner last night to drive to ShopRite and buy a box of (yes, I'll admit it) Chicken in a Biscuit crackers.  I blame my mother... We used to eat those when we'd go grocery shopping.  Buy a box, and share a handful on the way home.  Reminds me of her every time I see them.  Apparently, reminds Michael too, because I just HAD to have those crackers.  Busted them open before I'd even left the parking lot. (Okay, before I'd even put my seat belt on...)

I had my second P17 shot today.  Virtually pain free. Seriously.  I felt the pinch but that was it.  After the run, I showered, then we had the shot.  Same deal as last week: ice, pinch, shot.  No pain.  No bleeding.  Was up, getting dressed, and in the breakfast routine a few minutes later.  Absoultely shocking at how different this round is going versus the shots with Nicholas and Sophia.

According to a school/XC mom I'm pals with, my belly has 'popped'. For sure.  If I look down, it sticks out quite a bit from the tatas, which is saying something in my case!  I can still see my toes, thank goodness, but I have quite a round belly at this point.  That kind of blows my mind too, to be honest.  Before I 'knew' I was pregnant and I saw movement later on with Bobby and Maya, but being so heavy (combined with the bedrest, I'm sure), there wasnt really a bump, more like wavy lumps.  This time just feels so... normal....

Well, my tea is getting cold, and Miss Maya (who is back to herself!) wants to go pick up PawPaw for his Friday visit, so I'd better go...
