We have 11 weeks left and I am definitely counting down!! I can honestly say that I am getting so excited and anxious for the baby to arrive. I feel like time is going by fast but I wouldn’t mind speeding up a bit more!
I had a Dr’s appointment this morning, everything looks great and is measuring right on track!! I have been feeling pretty good (minus the foot set back) and I am looking forward to the weeks to come!
Here’s what’s been going onnnnn:
THE BABY IS close to 17 inches long the size of a butternut squash, Weighing about 3.1 lbs
WEIGHT GAINED: gained 0.5lb up to about 17lbs
GENDER: It’s a girl!!!
My workouts this past week were not really existent compared to the week before. Since injuring my foot and being put in a walking boot I haven’t been doing too much and trying to rest as much as possible. I am okay on the bike for cardio but that is it for now. Upper body strength workouts are going to be on the schedule for next week!
TUESDAY 20 minutes bike, 10 minutes elliptical
WEDNESDAY DR’S and found out I need the walking boot. Taught boot camp class in the evening
THURSDAY taught 1 hour boot camp class and taught senior fitness
FRIDAY 20 minutes light cardio on stationary bike
SATURDAY 20 minute bike interval
SUNDAY practice 1 hour group power session (light weights)
MONDAY REST DAY
FOOD CRAVINGS: I really wanted pumpkin this weekend so I made a batch of Pumpkin bran muffins they were pretty good, I still LOVE fruit and strawberries have been tastier to me, pumpkin coffee is my go to in the morning even though I only have 1/2 cup, I can’t live without eggs they fuel me up for my day, & on Friday night I craved a can of tuna so that was my dinner and it was quite satisfying.
SLEEP: Sleep has been great, I have only woken up a couple times here or there to pee in the middle of the night. Last night I had a hard time falling asleep due to a stuffy nose. I am not sure if it is the weather or allergies?
MATERNITY CLOTHES: I got to wear some of my new clothes from old navy and the leggings fit great. They are low rise and very comfortable.
STRETCH MARKS: None, yet!
DO I MISS ANYTHING: I am not going to lie, this weekend when everyone was drinking pumpkin & october fest beers it made me feel left out. Water just didn’t seem like a fun drink! On Sunday I was practicing a workout and went to go try out an ab exercise and it just wasn’t working. The baby’s position took over and I wasn’t able to do it!! very frustrating but expected at this point. I know there’s not much room in my belly!
MOVEMENT: she’s a mover as we already know. This weekend I had a few crazy moments where my belly looked like it was shaking from side to side. Either she was dancing or kickboxing but it was quite funny and creepy at the same time.
These pictures were taken just shy of 29 weeks (over the weekend)
BABY ITEMS PURCHASED: nothing purchased
WEDDING RINGS ON or OFF: ON
BELLY BUTTON IN or OUT: still in… but definitely making its way to flat or popping out!
I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO: My Rhode Island baby shower this weekend with Marc’s family. It will be so nice to see his family and some of our friends.
