Size of Baby: Head of Cauliflower
Weight Gain: +1. Â I finally felt better about my weight gain for the week. Â Maybe my body is slowing down a little bit. Â I weigh 137 lbs. for a total of 20 lbs. Â Letâ€™s hope I can keep this up. Â I think the added exercise is helping a lot.
How Iâ€™m Feeling: I had some minor annoying back pain this week. Â I was working on some stuff on the computer for the entire week and while doing this, I was sitting on the couch, which I think is what aggravated it actually. Â It felt better toward the end of the week when I wasnâ€™t just sitting all day.
I still have heartburn and some round ligament pain sometimes too.
I have noticed linea nigra on my lower abdomen, although I can barely see it due to the size of my stomach. Â I tried to shave again this week and that was like an athletic event!
Other than that, nothing too significant!
Doctorâ€™s Appointment: Â No doctorâ€™s appointment this week.
What Iâ€™m Eating: Â I grazed a whole lot more this week instead of having meals. Â I feel like I ate a ton, but I am doing better eating several small things all day instead of meals. Â When I get too full, itâ€™s really uncomfortable. Â Iâ€™ve been eating Oikos greek yogurt, breakfast sandwiches with eggs, turkey sausage and cheese on an english muffin and malt-o-meal daily! Â I eat breakfast all day:)
Exercise: Still walking 3 miles everyday (or at least most days). Â We went to the gym 4 days this week.
My weekly exercise looked like this:
Monday: Walked 3 miles, strength trained
Tuesday: Walked 3 miles, strength trained
Wednesday: Walked 3 miles
Thursday: Walked 3 miles, strength trained
Friday: Walked 2.5 miles
Saturday: Insanity plyo workout (modified)
Like I mentioned in this post, my walks are broken up. Â I generally walk 1 mile at the gym, strength train and then walk 2 with Otis after breakfast.
My mom also bought us a rocking chair! Â We love it. Â It’s big and comfy and I can hardly wait to have it. Â We got to pick the fabric, so it’ll be here in about 4-6 weeks.
We painted the babyâ€™s dresser this week. Â It was my grandparentâ€™s dresser and then my momâ€™s dresser when she was growing up and now Aidenâ€™s dresser. Â It has been in the family for a long time. Â We used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Â It was a bigger challenge than expected, but in the end it turned out great! Â Iâ€™ll talk about it in another post!
This is the last second trimester update!
It started like this:
This was my non-alcoholic pina colada!
And ended like this:
