26 weeks

So yesterday marked 26 weeks in this pregnancy. I got a new ticker thing on my side bar just to remind me!
I have had an incredibly uncomfortable day. I think it is mostly because this littlest monkey boy just won't hang out higher than my belly button. He likes to lay low and play drums on my bladder and back and kidneys! I don't mind sometimes but I really need to have him move up some. When he does move up it is such a relief. So I will be staying in my workout clothes the rest of the day. I went for a walk this afternoon for my lunch break and it helped relieve some of the discomfort. It was nice to get out and the sunshine was out finally. It has been several weeks since we have had a nice sunny day. Yesterday I went to the gym and ran a little over a mile. Wow, I missed running since I took it lazy easy over the holidays. I wanted to run more but had promised myself to take it easy my first day back so I did not mess up my back. I did get on the elliptical trainer afterwards and it was actually not too bad. I usually don't care for that machine but I had some great new music on my ipod and that helped.
I tried to post a picture of the belly but blogger is being difficult with me this afternoon so maybe later.

Have you tried those velcro support belt thingies? I never used them myself, but I know a lot of people get a lot of relief from the low back/pelvis pain with them, as it gives you a little "lift." (You're getting some free, albeit unsolicited medical advice here!)
