What is Baby K up to? 6″ long – how did this happen already?! He/she is kicking up a storm these days whether I can feel it or not.
How I am doing? Good 🙂 I think I am in the I feel normal stage or close to it. Only downer was the ear infection I got last week. Oh and still getting headaches – but they are less intense.
Weight gained: 3.5lbs.
Workouts: Still the same more or less, I tried a new series on Beachbody on Demand called Active pregnancy, then yoga and spin classes as per usual. Running is still happening once a week for 3 miles or so but at a slow pace, and feels pretty good! I am focusing on strength workouts as well.
Movement: Yup, more and more every day. Baby likes to party at night – lets just make sure we changes for when he/she is on the outside!
Food Aversions/Cravings: Nothing. My usual aversions have stuck – seafood, ice cream are the top two! Same as with Avery.
Sleep: Could be better thank you to my toddler and DSL 😉 Avery likes to wake up at 5am to use the potty…enough said.
Stretch marks? Nope.
Miss Anything? I really do not know, yes, I miss my pre-pregnancy body but love my little bump. Yes, I miss having more energy but will take the extra excuse to rest, so for every “miss” there is a positive 🙂
Fun and/or Interesting Things from the Week: I really do not know my exact DD or how far along I am! I thought I was just 16 weeks at my last appointment but was 16+6 the Dr said. So yeah. Being that I will be a scheduled c-section I am sure we will figure it all out then 😉
About that c-section since I might be asked…no it is a mandatory one but an optional one. I had one with Avery and was given the choice, and being honest I was 100% sure before even getting pregnant I would stick to c-sections in the future. Avery’s labour was long, painful and hard, all of that (plus her being stuck in my hip) meant after 70 hours I had an emergency c-section. Contrary to what most think I loved this, I always had an instinct I would have so was more than prepared. So when my Dr (same one that was there for Avery’s delivery) asked me she said this is how she phrases it: If you had the same labour over again and it ended in a c-section how would you feel after? Would you be happy you tried or pissed? My answer? Pretty darn mad. This way I can also prepare myself mentally for what is ahead as well as arrange for that extra help in the week after. I had a great recovery with Avery, I was out and about alone with a week with no pain – yes, VERY lucky. I am hoping that this can be the case again! Fingers crossed.
Baby Items Purchased: Nothing!
Looking forward to: My ultrasound!! I almost wish I had booked it earlier (I think I could have booked it from 18-20 weeks) now but what is a couple weeks? Okay that is an eternity 😉
