Lotsa changes 'round here!

Yesterday I ran the 10k race. I tried, but I didn't kill myself trying. I don't know my official time yet, but it was around an hour and 10 minutes. Shortly after the race I told my Mom I was pregnant, and then told most of my family. Now that they all know, I can let the blogger world know. I am just shy of 15 weeks pregnant, and feeling great. I kept it a secret for so long for many reasons. One being that I've had multiple miscarriages, but mainly because I wanted to be able to keep running without worrying my mom. I plan to keep running for as long as I can, and I am already registered for another 10k race next month. It is really helping to keep my weight down (haven't gained a single pound yet) and keeping me motivated to stay healthy for this little baby. When I got pregnant with Gaby I weighed 230lbs, and 260lbs by the time I delivered her. I am so excited to experience pregnancy at a healthy weight and I'm assuming the recovery will be quicker this time too.

I also decided to give the blog a new look. I'm still working on it, but I like the changes so far. I hope you guys will stick with me through this fun and exciting time. My due date is September 7th.


  1. CONGRATS!!!!

    Thant is so exciting. I am sure you will feel 100% better doing this pregnancy healthy.

    I am almost jealous between you and learning to be less I want to be a healthy pregnant lady too...okay not really.

  2. Congratulations! So exciting! Even better that you have not gained any weight yet. I think I am up 4 pounds already. I am very hungry and tired. How about you? Good job on the 10K. I have not laid off the exercise but I have taken up some extra eating.

    I look forward to following your journey! Hope you are feeling well.

  3. OH MY GOODNESS! Congrats to you all! What an adventure. And way to go keeping up the running. You can totally do it as long as you want, just until your body tells you it is enough. Each pregnancy is so unique, but I am sure this one will be even more so :)

    I knew you guys weren't done at two. ;)
