Alls well with the beach ball tummy (31 weeks)

I don't think I have much to report. But its been a while since I've written, so here I am to update. I had another Dr appointment last Friday. He checked the baby's heartbeat and checked my stats and thats about it. All seems fine, and I do NOT have Gestational Diabetes (not that I was worried). I've only gained 1 pound since my last visit so I'm up to 151 pounds.

I finally had to give up running. I was maintaining my usual routine of running about 2 days a week up until 2 weeks ago. I just started to feel a little to heavy to be bouncing around. The Dr had said that I can continue to run as long as I don't feel a lack of balance as my center of gravity shifts. I feel fine balance-wise actually. So in lieu of running, I've joined the gym at my coop. Its got a ton of machines to try out. I've never really belonged to a gym so this is all new to me. I tried the stationary bike last night. And guess what? I couldn't figure out how to turn it on. I kept pushing button after button. Finally a nice man told me I had to actually start peddling before the buttons would work. Thats intuitive?? Maybe it is. Maybe now I've broken through the newbie-gym barrier and I will be able to run all machines. We'll see. The workout was not nearly as satisfying as a good run, so I think I will try the elliptical next time.

My belly is getting quite large and its time for another picture, but alas my globe trotting husband has the camera with him on vacation. He decided last minute to take an AWESOME vacation to Costa Rica to a surf camp. I am just a little jealous as I can't fly at this point, let alone surf. :) But I'm happy he's able to get away one last time before the big CHANGE! So, I promise to post a new pic next week when he brings the camera home.

Oh, and I should mention that Fay is a kicking machine. She wakes me up a night sometimes with her kicks. And she gets herself into some odd positions. She loves to make my tummy all lopsided by pushing her butt or head waaaay out on my right side. Its cute in a deformed belly kind of way.

So if you cannot fly and you cannot surf, could you float if you were in water???
