I can’t believe 6 months has passed already, but I am excited to get closer to my due date! After I got over my migraine last week, my workouts were great and my energy came back, phew!
A lot of my clients and members at the gym keep asking me how I am feeling and how long I plan on working.. my answer is I feel great, and I am planning to work up until my due date! (pending no issues!) Staying active has kept me energized and I love the endorphins after my workouts. I haven’t really had cravings or mood swings and I owe it to exercise & healthy eating!
Here’s what’s been going on…
6 MONTHS or 27 Weeks
THE BABY IS the size of a head of CAULIFLOWER 14 1/2 inches long, Weighing around 2 1/4lbs
WEIGHT GAINED: up 16lbs
GENDER: It’s a girl!!!
TUESDAY OFF/REST Day. home with migraine (taught 1 hour boot camp class)
WEDNESDAY 1/2 hour walk plus 1 hour boot camp class.. participated in 1/2 the class
THURSDAY Strength day, 1-hour Group Power strength training practice workout
FRIDAY 30-minute walk with cooper (OFF DAY)
SATURDAY Strength day, filmed GROUP POWER !!! 1 hour of power
SUNDAY 5k walk in Fairfield
MONDAY 30 cardio (elliptical & bike), 1 hr senior fitness class (so fun!) and of course daily walks with Cooper
FOOD AVERSIONS: Still mexican, I don’t even like salsa!
FOOD CRAVINGS: Nothing that has literally drove me to the store, but I like pumpkin still (pumpkin bran muffins, pumpkin coffee) I also still LOVE breakfast, my staple is a veggie scramble with some whole grain toast. I can’t live without fruit either.
SLEEP: I have been sleeping great. I think my workouts helped tire me out. I wake up a little earlier but I can’t complain!
MATERNITY CLOTHES: Still wearing the stuff I recently bought, my maternity t-shirts are definitely more snug and shaping my belly nicely.
STRETCH MARKS: None and I’m hoping that doesn’t change.
DO I MISS ANYTHING: I miss laying on my belly, I can do it for a short period of time but it is definitely not comfortable anymore! I also miss having a variety in my wardrobe. My clothing items are limited!
MOVEMENT: Baby G is active as usual. Generally at night when I finally sit down and relax, but she surprises me during the beginning of my workouts and training clients now too with a little flip here and there.
BABY ITEMS PURCHASED: None.. but Marc put together our dresser so the baby’s room is really coming together!
WEDDING RINGS ON or OFF: ON
BELLY BUTTON IN or OUT: still in… but looks like its changing a bit on me.
I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO: my rhode island baby shower with marc’s family on the first weekend in October. I am also looking forward to the fall weather. We got a taste of it this weekend and I loved being active outside!
