Seriously yall, this is getting crazy. I get my weekly update and say “wow that was a fast week!” So different from watching the days crawl by in the first trimester! I am now 22 weeks pregnant with baby girl, and things are going really well!
Post Mexican food lunch. I think it makes a difference!
This has been a whirlwind of a week for a lot of reasons, but I will explain more about that in a later post. I am feeling really great, my mild symptoms are nothing much to complain about. I bought a support belt so that fingers crossed, I can try running again. Hoping maybe late this afternoon/early evening I can test it out. Let’s take a look at how this past week has gone:
Symptoms: Slight swelling when up for a long time walking around, round ligament pain, tired, forgetful, back starting to ache a good portion of the day, mild heartburn some days. Sleep hasn’t been very good though. Acne getting better but not gone, but I am overall very happy with the way things are going.
Baby’s Size: Papaya
Maternity Clothes: Nothing new, but in going to the pool last week I quickly realized my bikinis from last year are not family appropriate for me to wear anymore! Must invest in one maternity swimsuit.
Stretch Marks: no changes
Sleep: Not so great. I have mentioned the past couple weeks I have had days where I wake up wide awake for a couple hours. Wwweeelll, last night was the worst. I was up from 1:30-5:15 and could. not. sleep. Preparing me for this fall I guess?
Miss Anything?: Seriously starting to miss sleeping on my stomach and a good hard run.
Cravings: Not really much. I haven’t really been stuck with the “gotta have it now” cravings like a lot of women experience.
Aversions: A few days have been up and down as far as nothing sounding appealing and not wanting to eat.
Looking Forward to: Going to the beach for a couple days in June and reading some baby books!
What I’m Loving: Lots and lots of baby kicks, especially at night. Getting stronger, too. Makes it seem so much more real!
Workouts: No running this past week but I have kept moving at least 5 days a week. I walked almost 2 miles with my dad Saturday, then again Monday with my mom. Walking with the dogs when I am at home. Attempting to run with my new support belt this week!
QOTD: Did you run with a support belt while pregnant?
Did the month of May fly by for anyone else?
