I’m super excited to share a new baby update with you today. Although I am currently 15 weeks pregnant I am updating you on the previous weeks changes!
I’m starting to feel more like myself and it has made everything better. I almost want to say i’m enjoying life again but that sounds silly. I just can’t help but be happy for feeling good
Week 14 The baby is the size of a LEMON
Week 14 Gained 0-.5lbs (up 8 lbs) I can tell things are slowing down a little because I’m starting to eat healthy and more normal!! It’s not all carbs anymore.
I had some nausea relief on several days this week which were amazing and it helped me with my workouts. I had my normal work schedule: I taught 2 Group Power Classes, 2 Fit For Life, & 2 Boot Camp Classes plus I walked Cooper on several days. I also did some Hammer Chisel Cardio workouts! I was feeling great during most of these workouts.
These pictures were taken at 13 weeks + 3 Days… I look bigger here then I do in my 14 week photos below!
Small bouts of nausea. My energy has slowly increased and I have been less tired during the days. Everything seems to be getting better
Plantain chips, ice cream, on some days peanut butter didn’t sound appealing, sweet potatoes and veggies unless they are mixed into other foods.
Eggs, Potatoes, grapes, strawberries, chicken, steak, meatballs. I’m not sure I would even call these cravings, they are just foods that I am eating on a regular basis or foods that my body is enjoying
Sleep has been great, I look forward to closing my eyes at night and for the most part I sleep straight through!

LOOKING FORWARD TO:
I’m looking forward to feeling baby kicks and movement. I felt them with Ava around 15 1/2-16 weeks so I’m anxious for those feelings again. I know it will be reassuring that the baby is doing well.
BOY OR GIRL?
Feeling like it’s a girl this week
We are still holding off on buying things until we find out if its a boy or girl on February 17th
I had several days of productivity this week, which means my nausea was barely there. Again I don’t want to jinx anything but it feels GREAT to feel relief and to be able to think normal again. For a second there I didn’t think the nausea would ever end but my prayers have been answered.
Marc and I are starting to do more house projects in anticipation of Baby #2’s arrival. I wouldn’t say we are nesting but we are trying to prioritize our goals before the summer arrives. Our to-do list is pretty lengthy but I’m confident we will get it done!!!
On a sad note…. I had been dreaming about going on vacation with Marc & Ava towards the end of February to Florida. It looks like my dreams have been shot down because there is a travel advisory for pregnant women due to the Zika Virus. It isn’t in the US right now so while Florida may be safe it just doesn’t seem worth the risk to me to travel. Bugs love me and I’m the first and last to get bit by bugs wherever we go so it does scare me. My vacation travels can wait until after the baby is born
Have you ever been pregnant before? What was your favorite part?
Have you heard of the Zika Virus? what are your thoughts on travel while pregnant?
