Below are the latest belly pics. I can hardly believe I am due in 8 weeks.
I am very proud of myself for making it into the pool yesterday and yoga today. I was much slower in the pool then I used to be but I was able to kick without my knee hurting. I was actually swimming too, not just floating. I do have a bit of extra drag. Yes, I was that pregnant woman in a bikini...it doesn't seem right to buy a prego swimsuit for just 2 more months. The yoga class was a Pregnancy Yoga class so it was very gentle but the stretching felt soo good! I am going to try to make it to the pool again tomorrow and plan to go to yoga again next week.

King Wencenlas on an upside down horse, you can see the tongue sticking out of the horse's mouth.
The Powder tower, one of the last towers for the original wall of "Old Town", where gun powder was stored.
The front of the Muncipal House.
Jan Hus memorial. A predecessor to Martin Luther. He was burned at the stake 100 years before Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the church door.
View from the Charles Bridge.
Kevin on the Charles Bridge with the castle in the background.
After walking around all afternoon (and freezing!) we made our way to the "Little Quarter" where we warmed up with tea (me) and beer (Kevin). We then took a tram to a monestery by the castle, for dinner. (a Rick Steves recommendation). We had contemplated walking, man am I glad we opted for the tram, as it would have been a long, up hill walk in the cold and dark. The tram took 10 minutes and cost us about a 1.50 euros, total!
Sunday morning we woke up to snow.
The escalator, down to the Metro, it goes straight down! I don't really like heights, so needless to say this escalator made me a little uneasy. It took 3 minutes and 10 seconds to go from top to bottom.
Monday we woke up to even more snow...
St. Vitius Cathedral, in the castle grounds.
View of Prague from the castle.
Fresh strudl, as recommended by Samantha Brown. We ventured far out of the city center for these. Less then a Euro each!
Satisfying Czech food!
Half devoured Honey Cake. The House of the Black Madonna.
