Last night we made healthy homemade wheat pizza for dinner, it was quite delicious! We had 2 pizzas, 1/2 mushrooms and 1/2 cheese with fresh basil, and then one with chicken, spinach, peppers, and gorgonzola. We cut them into little squares, and I had a couple of each, I would highly recommend making your own pizzas!
After dinner, Cooper laid on me and I swear he was feeling some baby movements with his paw! Or at least I am pretending he knew what was going on.
So my baby countdown has begun.. 49 days!! That sounds crazy to say because it sounds so soon, but Marc and I are so excited for the big day. I feel very organized and we have accomplished so much around the house, but I do feel like there’s a lot more to do. Does your to-do list ever end? I don’t think so..
Pregnancy Fitness update: this past week I didn’t exercise as much as I had planned on originally. I think my body needed a break. Ab work is as usual getting more difficult, the belly just gets in the way!! I am hoping to get in some light weight strength workouts this week and my cardio of choice lately is outdoor walks since the fall weather has been awesome.
Here’s what has been going on this past week with BABY G:
THE BABY IS about 18.5 inches long, the size of a PINEAPPLE, Weighing about 4.5 lbs
WEIGHT GAINED: total up 19 lbs
GENDER: It’s a girl!!!
THURSDAY taught boot camp
FRIDAY Group Power (1 hour strength training)
SATURDAY cardio walk outside
SUNDAY cardio walk outside
MONDAY Group Power (1 hour strength training) and taught senior fitness
FOOD AVERSIONS: At this point I do have some aversions but I just stay away from them. So this week I didn’t run into any trouble
FOOD CRAVINGS: I really wanted steak, a baked potato, and broccoli on Sunday night and that’s what we had for dinner! It was great. I think eggs and toast are a craving or staple now. I don’t feel complete in the morning without it! I love fruit.. any kind, berries, pineapple, apples, bananas. I wish I could eat it all day.
SLEEP: Sleeps been pretty good, I feel blessed. I only get up 1 time per night to pee and it doesn’t bother me.
MATERNITY CLOTHES: I bought a couple new long sleeve tops this weekend at Old navy but they weren’t maternity. They were super comfy though and a little bit longer so very cute with leggings.
STRETCH MARKS: None… phew
DO I MISS ANYTHING: I miss the usual, laying on my stomach and doing boot camp style workouts. If my doctor said it was okay I would probably still be doing burpees and jump rope! haha
MOVEMENT: she’s getting stronger. When she moves it is a little more uncomfortable probably because she weighs more now.
BABY ITEMS PURCHASED: Marc and I went shopping and bought 2 little newborn onesies. One that says my first christmas (lets hope she’s born before then) and a red “I love my daddy” onesie… so cute
WEDDING RINGS ON or OFF: ON… thankfully no swelling.
BELLY BUTTON IN or OUT: the belly button is officially FLAT…. weird!
SYMPTOMS: some symptoms I had this week were contractions, yes contractions.. I had about 4 in an hour last Tuesday and on Friday they did a test and I had 3 in an hour. We don’t need Baby G coming this soon. I haven’t been tired, I’m hoping the tiredness that everyone talks about in the 3rd trimester never comes. I feel pretty good!
LABOR SIGNS: some contractions but not too frequent
I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO: this weekend as usual! We are going to hang some bookshelves in the nursery. I am also hoping the weather is nice, because walking Cooper is my go to low impact exercise on the weekends now.
