6 months pregnant.. 3 to go!


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!!!

3 months left!

3 months left!


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!


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!

  1. Everyone keeps asking me when I’m working until too. And I’m not even in the fitness industry! People think just because you’re pregnant you become immobile, but I still feel great at 31 weeks. If more people stayed active during their pregnancies they would probably understand. You look great!!!

  2. I totally agree! It is motivating to hear that at 31 weeks you are still feeling great. I will be 28 weeks tomorrow and I feel the same way. I honestly think exercise has helped so much and I am keeping my fingers crossed to make it until the end continuing with my workouts!
    You look great :)
