So we're at 25 weeks...wow! Baby has been moving sooo much lately- especially right when I'm trying to fall asleep! My favorite part of the day is when Brett and I can lay in bed and feel (and see!) him/her wiggling/kicking/punching around. Apparently baby especially enjoys squirming under my ribs as well. Sleeping itself is becoming more difficult, because (complaint alert!) I feel just plain uncomfortable pretty much all the time. The ol' pillow-between-the-knees trick has been helpful so far, though. Also-I feel like my skin is being pulled apart (already!) and I know it will only get worse. I think the next time I have a baby I am going to intentionally gain like 20 pounds prior to getting pregnant, lose it, and then enjoy my stretched-out skin. Brilliant idea, no?
Running is still going well. I have had some issues with my belly getting heavier, but nothing major. Regular trips to the chiropractor have helped sooooo much with any lower-back/hip pain I have. I also ordered a Prenatal Cradle this week upon the recommendation of some running friends, so I'm excited to try that out. I am planning on running in the Army Birthday Run next Friday (5K distance) and I will be in the 7th month by then! The guys are joking that they're going to get a special trophy for me :-)
