Bumpdate: 23 weeks

FEELING: Really Pregnant! I know I am just past half-way there…..but for some reason I feel like I am 33 weeks.  Overall, I feel healthy and have energy, but I do think twice about picking something up off the ground when I drop it……that takes a lot of effort.

CRAVING: Junk food…..I wish I craved carrots and Greek yogurt….sadly I will take an Oreo over that any day.  I’m trying to indulge in moderation…..but during the past holiday weekend it has been difficult! Also- I can’t eat chicken.  It sounds horrible to me.

WARDROBE: Legging! Mostly maternity clothes. Luckily I have a good amount of sweaters that I can still fit into  (so far).  Jeans have become my ‘dress up’ clothes.

GENERAL THOUGHTS:

I am feeling great! I can feel kicks and tons of movement….which I love.  

I am still working out at the gym about four times a week.  I think that has really helped me through the nausea.  At this I am starting to slow down a bit.  I realize that I don’t have to go full blast on the stair master right now.  As for my strength training….I am still doing it but with lighter weights and more reps.

So much is changing in our lives. This seems to be the calm before the storm.  Our last Christmas at our current house (that is bittersweet).  Soon, and I am sure all at once, I will be ready to have a baby, moving into a brand new home and selling and packing up our current house.  I just need to take things in stride. Wish us luck!!

  1. So happy that you’re feeling well and working out! So many people don’t realize that working out is safe for most ladies during pregnancy. You look fantastic!
