Halfway.

Twenty weeks! That's five months -- I'm five months pregnant. Wow.

That means I am halfway through the pregnancy. I don't want to jinx things but, man, this pregnancy has been moving along. And smoothly, too. I've been feeling great! How lucky am I? Let's hope the luck continues . . .

At the halfway mark I have:

  • Gained 13 pounds
  • Gone up two cup sizes (bra)
  • Fully embraced maternity clothes
  • Continued to run in my regular running shorts
  • Resorted to walking up my hills on occasion (but can often run them)
  • Run two races: A 5.7-miler in 50:25 and a 3.5-miler in 29:59
  • Given up sit ups, but still do some push ups
  • Consumed more butter than any one person probably should AND
  • Learned the gender of my little one
Yup, yesterday I went for my 20 week ultrasound and spent an hour+ watching my little one on the monitor. The doctor checked out the brain and heart and kidneys and the other organs and bones. Everything looked great. All the fingers and toes were there and the legs looked like strong running legs.

The doctor also told us the gender. I was dying to know. Do you want to know?

Oh, just indulge me. Tell me you do! Thank you, you're kind.

So . . .


we're having another BOY!



That's right, you'll be able to call me the Happy Runner Mama of Two Boys soon. Well, in about 20 weeks. Or 18.5 if things follow the pattern of last time (I know they often don't but, I can hope).

Two boys.

I'm excited. I'm ready.

Thanks for reading, everyone. Have a great day!

Congrats on another boy!!!! And congrats for continuing to run! I hope I am able to run when I get pregnant again which will hopefully be sooner than later.

I had a relatively easy (except for 16 weeks of morning sickness) pregnancy the first time, but I was certainly not in shape before getting pregnant and besides working in a restaurant, did little to no exercise. I hope this time is much different for me and I love hearing stories like yours, of mommas able to keep running. I hope the next 20 weeks are as good as the first!!!! Good luck!

Congratulations!

Ewa said...

Boys are so much fun. I guess so are girls but I wouldn't know.
Good you are doing pushups, This is an amazing exercise. I can imagine that at one point though your belly might make those difficult to do also.
Enjoy the remaining 20.

We had two girls, and we found out before each one. Having a baby is hard enough, and being able to plan on gender, for clothes, etc., makes it just that much easier. Congratulations and hope rest or pregnancy goes by quickly.

Denise said...

i know it's easy for me to say since i'm not the one pregnant, but man, this is going fast!!

congrats on the little boy!!

Lorian said...

I think I have told you this before, but having same gender makes your life so much easier! I have 3 boys and the first 2 are about 21 months apart and every since the 2nd boy was about 18 months, they have entertained each other magnificently! It really does make mom's life so nice! The 3rd boy is about 3.5 years younger than the 2nd, so I am not sure what he is going to do while both brothers are in school because I can't bring myself to have a 4th ;)

Many congrats to you!!

Stacey said...

Candice @ I Have Run said...

Congrats on 20 weeks! And getting two boys. I have two girls and was so excited when the second was a girl too because there was something about having them be the same gender and hoping they would be close and play well because of it.

J said...

YAY!! That is such great news! Another boy is awesome! I am so happy for you and so glad things have been going so well for you so far in the pregnancy!
