Girls on the Run is in full swing now with registration taking up pretty much all of my time and energy. We have had a great turnout so far but there is still so much to be done...including coaches training tonight with almost 40 coaches! This will be my biggest training to date. I'm a little nervous.
The rest of my energy is consumed growing this baby...
Eleanor is now 29 1/2 weeks along and according to some sources is the size of an acorn squash. This little girl is nearly 3 pounds now and is kicking her momma all the time! The best moments are when Alex gets to feel her moving around. I grab his hand and place it on my belly and she usually quiets right down, but sometimes he gets to feel all the movement!
Last night was a particularly rough night for sleeping. She was bouncing around and my mind was racing. So around 2am I trekked downstairs to curl up on the couch. I can sometimes get better sleep when I don't have as much room to toss and turn. It still wasn't perfect, but I managed to get a little more rest before Alex came down for work this morning.
Before being pregnant I would have described a baby's movement in the belly as very alien-esque. And even being pregnant, at times it is so weird to have a living thing inside of you moving about. Most of the time I enjoy her movements though and it makes me excited for when she is here. Other times I become very annoyed, especially when I'm trying to sleep or read and relax. When I lay on my side she kicks like crazy which makes relaxing extremely difficult!
Well, time to get back to work and quit babbling! Have a great Tuesday!
