What is Baby K up to? She is starting to develop more fat and is probably over 2lbs!
How am I doing? Not bad, I feel much more done with pregnancy this time around, with Avery I really had it easy or maybe I just had a lot more chances to rest! I am doing good still, just the normal pregnancy aches and pains 🙂
Weight gained: 12.5bs. For comparison this is the exact same gain as with Avery but the scale number is 5-6lbs lower since I weighed less this time when I got pregnant. I am guessing I will still gain up to the same scale number (132lbs) with this baby as with Avery so my pregnancy weight gain might be higher this time around.
Workouts: No change here really, 4-5 a week, of the same things BUT I did want to talk more about working out in pregnancy. I was enlightened after I attended a yoga class with a new to me instructor.
I am one to over think everything all the time. My mind can really get the best of me. But in this pregnancy I have learned to quiet my mind a lot better and listen to my body. This has allowed me to continue running as well as my yoga practice with only minor adjustments. I have really found that trusting my body to tell me when to back off has allowed me to do things I might have usually stopped by now thinking I should not do them. I do realize there is a fine line here and this is not about pushing myself in any sense. Our bodies are so smart, and they are capable of so much more than most of us know or realize – usually because our minds get in the way! I can say for certain that in the past 5 years I have accomplished so much physically that I would have never in a million years thought I could have without simply trusting my body – pregnant and not. So the next time your mind gets in the way, trust your body and the signals it sends you on what you should versus should not do, and I know you will surprise yourself 🙂
Movement: Yup, ALL day long!
Food Aversions/Cravings: Nothing really!
Sleep: I would like 9 a night but probably getting 7-8 if I do not wake up in the middle of the night.
Stretch marks? Nope.
Miss Anything? Just feeling not pregnant!
Maternity Clothes: Still a mix of both. I hate maternity pants and panels in general so at home spent a lot of time in yoga and sweat pants.
Baby Items Purchased: C’s crib sheets, which I will share once we move and start to set up the nursery and a few small nursery items. I am trying not to shop a lot until after the move.
Other Things from the Week: I have another ultrasound booked and my surgery consult for the end of February, which makes things seem VERY real!
