25 Weeks! I can’t believe in just around 100 days (wow) we will have a baby. I’m still in denial. Probably because I have been ignoring a lot of the things I am supposed to be doing. I have my glucose test Friday, and I am going to see about a hospital tour very soon as well.
Symptoms: I have been having some serious tailbone pain. Anyone else ever suffer from this? My tailbone and back have been getting pretty achy, so I am trying to pay better attention to my posture and how long I allow myself to sit without stretching, which is hard when you work from a computer! I am definitely slowing down. I took a two hour nap yesterday at 3:00 and was afraid I wouldn’t be able to fall asleep last night. I fell asleep just fine, but am still having issues STAYING asleep. I had a relapse of not being able to eat much protein this week, I nearly gagged at a restaurant which is a feeling I haven’t had in many many weeks. I feel pretty good otherwise, and am trying to enjoy the last couple of weeks of being in my second trimester before I get to the “get this baby out of me” stage.
Baby’s Size: Cauliflower
Maternity Clothes: I got a maternity swimsuit from Target last week, which was slightly depressing. Swimsuit shopping is hard enough without extra weight! It’s cute though and I am looking forward to wearing it next week.
Stretch Marks: Same
Sleep: 1-3 bathroom trips a night, it varies. 8-9 hours a night, naps on workout days.
Miss Anything: Running. Like whoa. I feel so lazy.
Cravings: All the carbs and all the chocolate. We had fried rice the other day and it was amazing.
Aversions: Proteins like chicken and beef. Bleh.
Looking Forward to: The beach! I know we are just there 3 night but it’s better than nothing!
What I’m Loving: Baby kicks! My belly! Not feeling guilty about eating ice cream multiple times a week.
Workouts: I have been trying to get outside every other day to power walk, and then I stretch and do yoga poses on the “off” days. It’s way less than I was hoping to be doing at this point but unfortunately you can’t predict how your body will react to pregnancy.
QOTD: Do you go to the beach in the summer?
