A Much Needed Update

: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!

I’m 17 weeks today. Time feels like it’s flying by! I’m going to start doing weekly updates every Monday.

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!
