So I have some fun and exciting and crazy news!

I went to the doctor last Thursday and I am pregnant. They did an ultrasound and my cute little (1 1/2 inches) one to come has a healthy heartbeat of 183 beats per minute. Everything looked good and doc said I could go ahead and do the Wasatch Back this weekend. Can I just say...I have been SO sleepy. My husband can't understand why I keep falling asleep at 9:30 pm. I keep thinking I am never going to get anything done if I keep falling asleep so early. I am 10 weeks and a couple days. I am due on January 8th. So I guess it was a hidden blessing that I didn't get into the St. George marathon. For now I will just remember to take her easy and listen to my body when I am running. Last pregnancy I was able to run until I was 4 1/2 months pregnant. So we will see. Thanks for letting me share the news with all of you. Can't wait to report about the fun wasatch back relay after this weekend. Happy trails and Keep Moving Forward all you amazing running mommies!

Congratulations! That is very happy and exciting news! I swear I got more tired with each pregnancy, and I hear that is pretty normal. Your body is making ANOTHER little body... that takes a lot of energy! I am very happy for you and your family.

Congrats!!!!!! I agree- the more pregnancies, the more tired- but I ran religiously until 6 months pregnant this time and at 7 am still active! You have the right mindset- so enjoy!

Congratulations from another pregnant mom. It is a fun adventure running while pregnant...totally different. It is always nice to mix things up in life.
I will be honest and say that I am so glad I only have a few more weeks left. It seems like I have been pregnant forever!
Just take it a day at a time...I am excited to read about your process.
