Baby and I survived the craziness of moving last week, and are settling in back in our old hometown with Bobby and the pups. We are so happy to be back up here, and are now just waiting for a few key pieces to fall into place.
Symptoms: Feeling good this week! Aside from the crazy stress of moving and getting settled, things have been going well. My acne has gotten a lot better, sleep was better this week, and compression socks have kept swelling to a minimum. My biggest issue has been the round ligament pain when I run. It’s bad yall. I even tried the Gabrialla support belt everyone swears by and it did zero to help me during my running. Not sure how much longer I will be able to keep up the running unfortunately.
Baby’s Size: Grapefruit
Maternity Clothes: Sadly had to retire some of the smaller sizes this week.
Stretch Marks: No new changes
Sleep: Better this week! I chalk it up to being SO exhausted at night from the moving/changes etc. But I do get up 1-2 times to pee, and have been waking up earlier than usual (6:00).
Miss Anything: We went to a Mexican restaurant and people got margaritas and I couldn’t. Sad times. Really missing non painful running right now, too.
Cravings: Nothing substantial, I just like to snack all. day. long.
Aversions: Large portions
Looking Forward To: My appointment with my new doctor is Friday! Hooray! Can’t wait to meet her, and sign up for classes at the hospital.
What I’m Loving: When I tell people I am due in September and they tell me I look too small to be due so soon. It’s a nice confidence boost that I haven’t gotten TOO big yet.
Workouts: End of last week was rough because of all the moving, I was way too tired to do anything else…but I have run twice in the past 3 days for a total of 5 miles, and we have walked the dogs twice….so trying to get back into the swing of things!
QOTD: Mamas, did a support belt work for you?
Who ran yesterday for national running day?
