Still Biking, Getting Better!

20 miles on the bike at 5 months pregnant, average speed almost 15 mph...I gotta say, not bad. Things are definitely easier in the second trimester (well, the last 3 weeks maybe), despite having a resting heartrate in the 70s (compared to in the 50s pre-preg)! I'm sure one of these days I'll start to show and then things will get uncomfortable, but right now it's really easy to forget I'm pregnant. Well, until I lie down...I was watching my belly today and I can officially see kicks...very strange but fun! My belly just pops up and down really quickly. She's still super low (way below my belly button) so watching (and feeling) requires unbuttoning my pants, not something I'd do in public, but so fun at home!

Anyone want to tell me if I look pregnant yet, or just pudgy? (This was last week, at 20 weeks.)

OMG, you don't look pregnant AT ALL. I hope that I look like that. You look like you have a 6 pack abs. GEEEZ!! Nic job on the bike! I forgot that you know its a girl.

When I lie down and watch TV, I put the remote on my belly and watch it "dance" as the baby kicks--I started doing this around 20 weeks. It's also a good way for hubby to see the baby move!
