Next update I’ll be over 30 weeks, that means I’m really pregnant, right? The good news is I’m writing this post from Savannah on our little mini – vacay, if you can call it that. I’m thrilled that our hotel’s pool and awesome splash is open and it’s supposed to hit 80 today and tomorrow, even though I don’t really want to be in a bathing suit right now it’s something fun for Maddie Grace. At the same time though my husband is in a conference all day and night and I’m handling trying to be a tourist with a toddler solo, and we are both extra fussy from this cold we are still fighting. My dad is out of town at a conference and most of my friends here work but hopefully we will still be able to get together some and see my dad this weekend! Woohoo!
Feeling: Remember how last update I said I was uncomfortable? Yeah I didn’t even know what uncomfortable was. There’s always a foot in my side or rib cage, or he moves and sits on my bladder. Plus it’s like I can feel my belly stretching. Not fun. I’m also feeling very tired, both physically and emotionally. I need a real vacation, bad. I guess it’s a good thing we booked one for April (which seems so far away now).
Eating: Very unhealthily lately. My mother would probably be very upset. Why can’t I crave fruits and veggies? Instead it’s cheeseburgers and fried foods all the way.
Exercise: I was doing great until I got this cold. Going for little runs, still going to spin class (although leaning forward on the bike is getting uncomfortable), and making a point to be in the gym every Tuesday and Thursday morning while MG was at school. This week I’m proud of myself just for getting out of bed. Hopefully next week is more on track!
Weight: Despite what I said above at my appointment this week they said I actually hadn’t gained any weight so I’m back to being right on track! Maybe all the stressing out over having a tantrum throwing toddler burns calories? I’ll take it.
Random: I met with the one of the midwives at my new doctor’s office this week and loved her. It made me really happy that I’ve switched and have caretakers who I feel comfortable around and with the thought of them delivering my baby. Next week we go to register at and tour the hospital, and do a meet and greet with all the doctors at the practice which I’m looking forward to. Everything at my appointment looked good which is always a huge relief!
Clothes: I’m always looking for clothes that fit me and are pregnancy-appropriate while still being cute. That’s why I adore the Everly Dress from Mikarose. Mikarose offers a wide arrange of dresses, tops, and skirts that are modest but stylish. I love that I’m able to find clothes that I feel comfortable but still cute in!
