12 Weeks

Not a lot to report today. I have hit the 12 week mark and we finally spilled the beans to both sets of parents. I'm still running 30 miles per week but it is getting tougher. I'm not sure if it is because I am pregnant or because it is so hot. I have to run before dawn or at sunset and it is still pretty warm. I do use the treadmill from time to time but I get so bored. I also know that within weeks that will be my only option so I'm trying to avoid it for as long as possible. I'm still running pretty well. I have a hard time warming up so my first 2 miles are very slow if I run in the morning. I'm fine if I run in the afternoon. Again, I'm not sure if that is pregnancy related or if my Achilles are just done after all that marathon training. They were bothering me before I was pregnant.

Symptoms wise, I feel pretty good. I've been tired but managed to avoid morning sickness. I have had a head cold that could do without but all in all, I've felt fine. I've been able to hear the baby's heartbeat with my doppler so that has been the best development in the last few weeks.

I'm still not really showing but I've gotten bigger for sure. I hate this stage. The fat but not pregnant (looking) stage.
