Twenty weeks old isn’t really all that significant but for some reason it feels like it to me. Maybe its because twenty weeks is typically associated with the halfway point of a pregnancy. Maybe its the jump from the teens to the twenties. Whatever the reason, it seems old. I mean, as far as babies go.
I continue to gimp around and not run in my stupid boot. It’s been almost two weeks since I broke it so 4 more to go. I have discovered, thankfully for my sanity, that I can use the elliptical with the boot on and keep my toe stable. I’ve also (finally) been doing more core work and weights after every elliptical workout and think it may actually be helping my still split ab muscles. On top of that, I finally discovered the wonders of Breaking Bad when I looked it up on Netflix and use that to entertain myself. I just finished the first season, so no spoilers please 🙂
On the plus side, I dunno if it was because I was sick or just lucky but it appears that I have finally lost the final 2-4 lbs I was fighting as the scale has been steady for the last few days. If I can’t run, I can at least celebrate that! I also signed up for comeback half part 2 in December. I should have 7 weeks to train for it after my toe heals. I probably won’t be able to run fast, but I should at least be able to finish it. So there’s that.
Babies are getting bigger every day. Still no rolls from Abby yet and Miles still hilariously gets stuck on his stomach because he hasn’t figured out how to roll back. We go to a party to celebrate babies that our fertility clinic throws and go to Landen’s second birthday party. I wrote about his birth in my 2nd or 3rd post in this blog two years ago. Crazy. Both babies are starting to giggle in response to tickles and pay more attention to their lovey’s and the stuffed animals on their wubbanubs. But since they’ve figured out how to grab, but not let go, they often end up pulling the pacifier out of their mouths and then cry. Like, wtf just happened mom? It was there and now its gone. 🙂 They are also (much to my demise) starting to get distracted while eating and Abby likes to do this thing when she’s done that involves my nipple and pulling. I do not look forward to teeth. We haven’t started solids yet even though the pediatrician said we could – they still don’t seem all that interested, and I’m in no hurry.
No onto the fun part:
- Abby wears her first pair of shoes
- And strikes a pose, madonna style
- We go to a celebrate babies party
- And make our fertility doc pose for a few pictures
- And one with our awesome nurse
- We go for a ride in the double jogger – of course no jogging
- Miss Abby gets fussy and stuck in the carrier
Obviously no running stats this week. Boo.

I’m glad that you’ve found a way to work around the toe! I started the Couch to 5k. Mainly because my time on the elliptical was just so boring, but also cause you’ve made running sound interesting! I am doing week 1 over, but my right knee wasn’t adjusting very well to the change, and I figured better safe than sorry. But, I bet by next year I can report that I’ve done a 5K! 🙂

Addie hasn’t had a pacifier for a couple of months now for that very reason. She would pull it out and then couldn’t get it back in her mouth. So now she just sucks on her fingers instead! 🙂

About 3.5 more weeks till I can run again :). But who is counting?

I have to agree about 20 weeks old feeling special somehow 🙂 Yay for 20 weeks! Boo for no running. Oh well, soon enough, eh? And they are so cute! The size disparity is starting to crack me up….
