Well, friends, we are almost half way through pregnancy! 21 weeks to go! It has been a great week, overall! There have been some hiccups here and there, but I’m feeling good right now! Time for a bump update!
How far along? 19 weeks!
Total weight gain: I actually didn’t weigh today, so I’m not sure. I’ll guest 14 pounds, +1 from last week. I could be wrong, though! I’ll make sure to weigh next week.
Maternity clothes? Yep! I’ll probably be in them post-partum too. They’re so comfy. I’ve mostly worn dresses and skirts but I recently got some really comfy linen shorts from Old Navy on sale. Love them!
Stretch marks? None yet, still!
Sleep? I’m sleep more through the night, which is good. The past couple of nights have been rough due to increasing sciatic nerve pain. It hurts to roll over.
Rings on or off? Original set, off. The replacement set is still on.
Best moment this week? Monday! We found out that Baby C is a little GIRL!! We are so excited! She does have a name, but we’re keeping that a secret for now.
Cravings: None really. I’ve been eating a lot of sandwiches though.
Symptoms: Still back pain. Heartburn has decreased but it’s still there every once in awhile.
Nutrition? Better! I’m working on making dinners more and we’ve done a good job! Things got a little out of hand during the weekend, but this week has been good!
Workouts? I went 3x last week and have gotten activity in 2x this week so far. I’ll probably go to the gym again tomorrow and maybe Saturday. I spent all day painting a wall in the nursery yesterday which is a workout for a pregnant lady.
Belly button in or out? In.
Looking forward to? This weekend! Hopefully we can finish or make significant progress on the rest! I painted the hardest wall already (lots of corners/doors) so the rest of the walls shouldn’t take long with 2 people painting them.
