It’s crazy that it’s Thursday already but I’m loving it and I’m loving the warm weather we have had this week. Even if it has caused me to sweat a ton and take extra showers, I am in favor of the warm weather any day.
I am currently 33 weeks pregnant and 2 days and while I’m trying to enjoy the last weeks of my pregnancy I’m also counting down the days until I can meet this little baby boy of ours. 48 days give or take which seems like nothing. I find myself guessing whether he will come right around his due date or early like Ava.
I really don’t care, I just want him to be healthy and to come when he’s ready!!
PREGNANCY UPDATE 32- 33 WEEKS
THE BABY IS about 18-18.5 inches long, the size of a honeydew melon, according to my doctor appointment 4 days ago he is weighing in at 4 lbs 9 oz. WOW.
It’s a BOY!!!
I am back to my normal routine and the past 2 weeks have been great, I’m teaching 6 classes per week, walking Cooper daily and fitting in some extra stretching when I can!
MONDAY Fit For Life class & Group Power class, 20 minute walk with Cooper
TUESDAY 20 Minute walk with Cooper & Boot Camp Class
WEDNESDAY 1 hour Group Power Strength training
THURSDAY Fit For Life plus taught boot camp and a 20 minute walk with Cooper
FRIDAY-SUNDAY I focused on just light cardio or walking
WEEK 33: I am teaching 7 classes in 5 days which is kind of a lot so you can imagine that I will be taking this weekend off from exercising and letting my body relax!!

I can’t say I have had a ton of symptoms these past 2 weeks. It’s actually been pretty good. Besides being tired and napping on occasion I haven’t had any ligament pain, headaches, swelling, or joint pain. I hope my streak of goodness continues.
I’m getting pickier with my foods these days. There’s a lot I don’t want and I’m leaning towards simple foods and cold ones now that it’s hot.
- Grilled Chicken Cold… BBQ or mustard vinagerette have been delicious right out of the fridge!
- Eggs & potatoes
- Raw veggies: cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers
- yogurt parfaits with all the berries
- Watermelon, oranges, and strawberries
- Salads and sandwiches (I think because they are easy to prepare!)
- Square Bars
- Chocolate.. larabar cookie dough, chocolate chip muffins, or chocolate chip ice cream
I have been sleeping okay at this point. I get between 7-8 hours per night and I usually wake up 1x to pee. That’s not too bad. I have found that it has gotten a bit harder for me to sleep on my left side. I blame that on my shoulder injury from a few years ago. So I have been flopping around a bit more and sleeping on my right side a little more!
Now that the weather is getting nicer I feel like I have a few new clothing options. I have 2 pairs of maternity shorts from my pregnancy with Ava and then tons of loose dresses (that will actually probably be tight) but comfortable for the warm weather! I’m currently stretching out a lot of my workout clothes but I really don’t feel like buying myself anymore at this point in the pregnancy!

Do I Miss anything:
I miss exercising at my normal pace and doing core work. I am living vicariously through my clients and classes!
I really wanted a cold cut sandwich the other day when Marc was eating it. I think more because I knew I couldn’t have it!
The baby moves all day. Some oh his movements are a little uncomfortable. His kicks are higher and off to the side where my rib cage is. He hiccups once or twice daily and they are low so I know he’s head down.
He moves during my workouts, when I walk Cooper, when I’m laying down, when I’m eating… it seems like it’s nonstop.
He basically works out all day long. I don’t remember that with Ava!
Baby Items Purchased:
I know I mentioned we purchased a rug, but we set it up in the baby’s room and used the carpet cleaner to freshen it up. We bought a new baby gate for the top of our stairs and we are in the process of buying a new dresser for his room. I’m looking for something small but something that will fit a good amount of clothes in!
Ava is making her way out of her crib so we aren’t buying the baby a new one we are going to use hers when she’s ready to make the switch!
Wedding rings ON or OFF:
Belly Button IN or OUT?
OUT.. like I’ve said before, this is not my favorite thing right now! My belly button sticks out through all my tops especially the workout tops which I’m in every day. I have had some days where it was flat and I think that’s from the baby growing!! This is my least favorite body change. I don’t mind the extra curves right now but the belly button??? Everyone stares and I’ve received some comments but I guess I’m getting used to it.
I’m Looking Forward To:
With less than 7 weeks until we meet our little baby boy my excitement is growing each day. I’m looking forward to my weekly appointments to know that the baby is doing well and going strong!
This past Monday we had an ultrasound. I was so happy and relieved to see our little guy was growing at the right pace, his heartbeat was strong and he was right on track. He was sucking his fingers and had his hand in front of his face most of the time so we couldn’t see him that clearly. I did see his cute little nose and mouth which looked just like Ava’s s this stage
The Doctor is having me do another ultrasound at week 35 to make sure the baby’s growth is still on track but most importantly to make sure he remains head down so that he will be in a good position for delivery.
It’s getting more real each doctors visit. We are super pumped to meet this little one and I think Ava is too
