Well the second trimester is coming to an end! Yay? I’m excited to be getting closer to meeting our baby boy and all the newborn cuddles and head sniffing, but also freaked out, we have just under 3 months until my due date and that is not enough time for everything I need to get done before this baby gets here! Plus I’m starting to get into the uncomfortable all the time no matter what stage. And the heartburn. And braxton hicks. And I need a nap…
So the big news this week is that I did manage to finally get my doctor changed and I’m so relieved and happy with this choice already. In case you didn’t catch my chronicle last time, basically my doctor’s office kept stringing us along regarding the doctor situation and what doctors would be delivering babies at the time and I got super uncomfortable. A friend recommended a different practice that delivers at a different hospital that she loved and is super breastfeeding friendly so I switched even though my old doctor was a complete pain about sending over my medical records. But everyone at my new doctor’s office is so nice and friendly, although it’s a lot different than what I am used to I think it’s going to be really good.
But even a pregnant lady can dress up with pretty stuff, right? I’m obsessed with this new necklace from Happiness Boutique. Happiness Boutique is a German-based store with great prices and free shipping and a customer reward program. Make sure you check out their large selection of necklaces and earrings!
Feeling: Well, not as great. There are some days where I’m just sore all over, but other days I feel good. I’m glad that the headaches have stopped but now I’m having heartburn and indigestion. I’ve also been having braxton hicks and sometimes just need to lay down. Overall I’m still doing well though and know that it could be a lot worse so I’m happy!
Craving: It’s different every day. Lately I’ve really been wanting sweet stuff though when in early pregnancy this time I would have puked. The other day all I wanted was an extra large baja blast from Taco Bell and made Tom stop by on his way home from work and they were somehow all out of baja blast. Major disappointment.
Weight: Oi this is the embarrassing area. I’m up a whopping 22 pounds now which is a little higher than a should be at this point. I blame the feeling crappy which leads to me not working out or eating well, when really there’s no excuse. I bought a bunch of healthy food today and hit up the gym while MG was at school so hopefully I start getting back on the right track, even though I say that every week.
Exercise: I’ve been doing at least 30 minutes of spin twice a week, and going for walks/runs in the neighborhood. I need to be better about still doing some strength training and prenatal yoga. I definitely feel better and have more energy on the days I get a morning workout in so I’m trying to make sure it happens more often. I mean come on, chasing an 18 month old is exercise, right?
And I can’t believe we are on the eve of another weekend! I’m trying to cut back and take it easy and listen to my body about when I need to rest – overdoing it last weekend made for a rough early week, and we have a pretty busy weekend planned out again this weekend so hopefully I find some downtime!
