warning: potty humor

I just need to write this down so I can remember it in desperate times. The last couple of days have been really bad depression days. I've felt so sad that I didn't want to leave the house. The reason why is that I felt so HUGE in all my clothes. I was cramping and I couldn't breathe my belly was so big. I felt like my stomach looked like I was already 9 months pregnant and I was so uncomfortable! I honestly couldn't bend over...I shouldn't feel like this yet! I didn't know what to do! I know that you seem to grow in pregnancy overnight but this was crazy!!

Then...I had a marvelous experience in the bathroom. And the huge belly was GONE! I was back to my tiny, barely there baby bump. Phew!

If any of you have ever experienced constipation and gas like that...well, then we are friends.

Just to be clear, I didn't use a laxative. That was my body all on its own. Pretty impressive.

Beautiful Houston

Now that I'm getting bigger and bigger every day, it has become harder to run. Luckily though I've been able to log in the miles a couple days per week and it helps me feel a tiny bit better about my voracious appetite. Which, by the way, is embarrassing. Like for example, Ben and I sat down to eat lunch on Sunday. I compared our plates. I had a huge ham and cheese sandwich...ben was having Kashi cereal with strawberries. Um, yeah. Something weird happened. In Ben's defense, we had bought that Kashi a while ago and it needed to be eaten...usually I would down that stuff but pregnancy has completely changed to my taste buds to that of a man's. Ugh. Will I be this way forever???

Anyway, we have had some of the most gorgeous days here in Houston. Here are so pics of the trails I well as the 20 weeks pic (well, almost 20 weeks:))
