I’m officially Bumpin’ over here! I know I will look back one day and laugh at how small I am, but for now, I feel huge!
I went on a 2.5 mile run/walk yesterday. The weather was beautiful, so I had to take advantage. I have only been nauseated in the afternoon and evenings, so the mornings have been better the past few days. Other than that, I think that last time I exercised was a 2 mile run/walk last Thursday. I was planning to run 4/5 last weekend but it rained most of the time. Hoping to get it in this weekend.
Symptoms: Tired (but not as bas as before), breakouts on face, chest and shoulders. Nausea in evenings, constipation, forgetfulness, dry skin, bloated, peeing a lot.
Baby’s Size: Lime
Maternity Clothes?: My sweet friend Jen was kind enough to send me some of hers that she has outgrown, but I have not bought any of my own. I have bought a few workout things from Under Armour in bigger sizes that will hopefully hold me over for a couple more months at least.
Stretch Marks?: Not yet, but I’m not holding my breath. I have stretch marks on my legs from when I hit a huge growth spurt in 5th grade, so I have had them before…
Sleep: WAS really good but the past few nights it’s been tossing and turning. I have no problem falling asleep but then I wake up every couple hours wide awake, and of course to get up and pee.
Miss Anything?: I don’t drink a lot of alcohol, but with the weather warming up I have been having serious cravings for a Margarita or Pina Colada (I have been craving cold/frozen things like slushies so not surprising).
Cravings? Snowballs, slushies, ice cream, carbs like chips, cheez its, etc.
Aversions? Nothing makes me gag, but most foods just don’t sound appetizing. Mealtime is no fun because I literally just stare at the refrigerator because nothing sounds “good” to me. I force myself to at least snack all day though.
Looking Forward to: Second trimester and hopefully kissing morning sickness goodbye!
What I’m loving: Reading and planning. I am such a planner I love just researching and learning and getting ready!
QOTD: Anyone else craving frozen concoctions? When did your morning sickness subside?
