27 weeks

The weeks just keep flying by.  I say it every week, but I still can't believe how quickly all of this is going.  I'm now in my 3rd trimester and feel like I've hit the home stretch.  And by stretch I'm just referring to my ever growing stomach.

These photos were taken after Ryan and I went to the gym.  I ran a little over 3 miles on the treadmill.
I haven't found any maternity work out clothes ... or haven't really looked for that matter.  I'm still rocking my x-small NIKE top and small NIKE tempo shorts.
I definitely get some stares while at the gym.  Not sure if people are just surprised that a pregnant woman would be working out beside them or if they are scared I'm going to go into labor all of a sudden (too soon for that people!).
The ever growing stomach has made it difficult to do things like bending down to tie my shoe ... from what I've heard it's only going to get harder for these tasks.  

While at the gym I weighed myself ... 126 pounds.  So far I've gained a little less than 20 pounds throughout the pregnancy.  From this point on "they" say that I'll gain 1 pound a week.  I'm curious to see where those 13 pounds will go.  

I feel great all the time, albeit getting more and more tired as the day goes on.  Ryan has been such a great help and even gifted me a spa gift certificate for my first prenatal massage.  I can't wait to schedule that!


  1. Oh my gosh you look adorable ... I wish I had been that active during my pregnancies ... until what week can you run?

  2. thanks!

    I'm honestly not sure if there is a cut off date on when I should stop ... for now I'm going to take it easy and run as much as I can without pushing myself too hard.

    a friend joked that I would give birth on the treadmill ...
