:blows dust off this blog:
I’m back! I took a long hitaus due to writers block, busy schedule, & fatigue.
If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you may have seen my recent announcement. ..
We’re having a baby!
We found out in early December and we are due August 18. The first trimester I was most nauseous but never got sick. The only aversion I had was coffee which was tough because I was tired all day. We got to hear the heartbeat at our first appointment which was at 8 weeks. It was such a beautiful sound! I continued to workout and run when I felt like I had enough energy.
Once I hit the second trimester I felt much better! I wasn’t nauseous anymore and my energy was back! Running is feeling better every week (my 8 miler yesterday was awesome! ) and I feel good after a workout. My pants don’t button anymore and I’ve been living in leggings and dresses. Over the weekend I bought a Belly Band so I can wear my normal pants again, which I’m happy about!
Weight gained: At my 16 week appointment last week I am up 3 pounds.
Workouts: running 2-3 days a week and am cross training 2 days a week.
Symptoms: constant bathroom trips is really the only one I can think of!
Movement: I’m starting to feel those flutters and I’m loving it! I can really feel the baby when I’m lying down or sitting still.
Food Aversions/Cravings: No real adversions. Now cravings is a different story! I love lemonade and drink my little Trader Joe’s juice box every night with dinner. Also, if I see something one TV that looks good I want it, like the Pop Tarts I bought a few weeks ago. Lucky Charms is another but I have caved to that one…yet!
Sleep: I get about 8-10 hours a night so I can’t complain.
Stretch marks: None
Fun Things from the week: People noticing my tiny bump!
Belly Button In or Out? In
Wedding Rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time? I am pretty much happy all the time.
Looking forward to: Finding out the gender in about 3 weeks! I’m ready to start the nursery!
I have so much more to blog about like my personal training business I’m starting up, training for the Flying Pig half with my brother, a couple DIY projects I’ve done and more! Hopefully I still have some readers out there!
