Ramblings and a picture

B asked me to take some belly pictures so he can watch as I grow. I can tell he is having a harder time with this deployment. I miss him so much. I am trying to stay busy with work, friends, and as soon as the weather actually warms up – enjoying the sunshine. It was 34 degrees this morning! Very cold for here this time of year.

Yesterday I started having what I guess are round ligament pains – pains going down the sides of my belly. I also had some sharp pains in my cervix. I don’t know what caused the cervix pain but it has not returned so I am not going to get worried.

My parents are coming up from Florida next weekend. My mom and I are walking in the city half-marathon. I initially started training to run it, but found out I was pregnant about 2 weeks into the training. My work has a great training program set up with weekly group runs/walks on Saturday mornings and individual training during the week. The schedule has definitely helped me stay on track – with the exception of the 5-6 weeks I did nothing athletic besides running to the toilet to puke. I can’t say I am excited about the actual race, but I am really looking forward to completing it with my mom.

This is my 16 week belly picture. B says he can tell my belly has gotten more round since he saw me 2 weeks ago. He also asked if I have had to buy maternity pants yet or if my “muffin top guard” (belly band) was still allowing me to wear my old pants. I thought that was hilarious! :)

Aww! Cute belly shot! It's awesome you're staying busy while B is gone, I can't even imagine how hard that must be. Way to go with the half marathon walk! That rocks! Glad you're feeling ok except for the ligament pains. *hugs*

Yup, that sounds like RLP. As for the cervix pain, it happens. I had all sorts of funky pains, especially at 16 weeks. So glad to hear that things are continuing to go well! :)

You are too cute! HUGS!
