Stretch marks: None. Here’s hoping this lasts.

Sleep: Between bathroom breaks and a sore back, sleep is getting pretty difficult

Best moment this week: Not this week but last week I got to hear the baby’s little heartbeat at our 16-week checkup. And I think the tiny bubbles I feel are the baby moving around!

The hubs and I ran our first 5k together. I ran cross country and track throughout jr. high all the way to college and a few half marathons since and he’s ran a 5k before but we’ve never done one together. We ran the Dragstrip Dash, which since he drag races, was a great combination of our hobbies.
