How Iâ€™m Feeling:Â I am not going to lie I forgot to do this right after week 18, so we are into week 19 now and I semi-forgot some of the symptoms Iâ€™ve been having. Â I know that heartburn is here with a vengeance. Â Bananas get me lots and randomly other foods too. Â If Iâ€™m too hungry, Iâ€™ll get it then too. Â Itâ€™s not that bad. Â Most of the time, I just deal with it and it goes away and sometimes Iâ€™ll pop a Tums. Â I heard from someone at school to drink some apple cider vinegar in some water and that could work, but I havenâ€™t tried it yet.
I think everything else is fairly similar to last week. Â Still feeling a little short of breath. Â I have some growing pains in my stomach sometimes, especially when I wake up. Â I have noticed that upon waking, Iâ€™m pretty stiff. Â I think it stems from my stomach region and then radiates to my back and hamstrings. Â Once I get up, Iâ€™m fine though. Â I also have to pee all the time. Â I think sometimes I ignore it while Iâ€™m sleeping and thatâ€™s part of the stomach discomfort in the morning because I always have to pee soooo bad when I wake up.
I have gotten a few headaches, but I got a new humidifier (filterless) and it works much better than my old one and since then, Iâ€™ve had no headaches as long as I hydrate.
Other than that, Iâ€™m feeling lazy, but thatâ€™s been the same way since I got pregnant. Â I have a whole house to pack and I canâ€™t seem to make myself actually pack a box. Â Better luck next week.
Doctorâ€™s Appointment: Â We had the anatomy scan ultrasound this week and everything looks good thank God. Â He was in a weird position for the tech, but at the end he ended up moving and all was good. Â
What Iâ€™m Eating: Pretty much back to normal. Â I am loving Chobani greek yogurt (which is nothing new) and creamy bran cereal in the mornings. Â I think Iâ€™m mostly back to my old self! Â I havenâ€™t even had any notable cravings this week (as I can remember).
Exercise: IÂ have still been walking with Otis everyday and loving it. Â We are starting to go further, which is nice. Â The weather is cooler and Iâ€™m getting more stamina. Â I also did the Insanity cardio recovery one day, which is a bunch of lunges and squats just at a normal pace instead of jumping while doing them. Â I was pretty sore after doing that, but it was good. Â I did incorporate a little bit of running with my walking 2 times. Â I definitely notice that if I get too out of breath, I feel dizzy. Â I am going to try to continue that, but I think Iâ€™ve made the realization that Iâ€™m just not going to be a pregnant runner. Â With the move to Denver at that altitude, I think itâ€™ll be even harder. Â Iâ€™ve come to terms with it and will still try to jog little spurts in my walks, but thatâ€™s probably going to be it. Â Iâ€™m content with walking for now.
