Last week of the second trimester! If you would have asked me at week 9 that I would get to the third trimester and it would seem to have flown by I would have laughed at you. Time went SO SLOWLY back then! I will be honest and say I feel really unprepared. I have read a couple of books, but other than that we have nothing “ready”. I guess I’m still in denial.
Symptoms: No new symptoms so that’s good! I must say my face is REALLY clear, probably more clear than it has EVER been. When I leave the house I throw on some mascara and blush and that’s it, it’s so nice! Still just feel like I’m slowing down and can’t do as much. I take occasional naps but not every day. Still very short of breath, but happy to say with Tums the heartburn is under control. Same round ligament pain, but I am going to try a new KT Tape application this week, I will let you know if it works!
Baby’s Size: Head of cauliflower
Maternity Clothes: Nothing new
Stretch marks: Nothing new
Sleep: A little better this week. Only getting up once or twice as opposed to 2-3 times. However, yesterday morning I woke up at 4 and was awake until 6. Then I had to get up at 6:30 so that wasn’t a lot of fun.
Miss anything: I know I say this a lot, but I am really just ready already to have my body back.
Cravings: Sweets. Lots and lots of sweets.
Aversions: Nothing new. I just can’t eat a lot at one time or anything really heavy.
Looking Forward to: My ultrasound on Monday morning
What I’m loving: Not feeling guilty about the extra sweets I have been eating. While I do want my body back, it has also been nice to cut myself a little slack for a few months.
Workouts: Not great this week. We have had a lot going on and it has been brutally hot, so if I am busy in the morning, then a workout just doesn’t happen. We don’t have a gym membership right now so it has been tough.
QOTD: Did you ever feel prepared before your baby came?
Who watched the World Cup yesterday? Thoughts?
