Gender: I’m still feeling girl. Ryan
hasn’t thought about it much, but he says girl too.
gain/loss: I tend to not weigh
myself between appointments. Although I
don’t want to gain too much weight, to some degree it’s not something I can
control, so I don’t want to obsess over it.
Exercise: This week I did some weights, some spin bike and I went to my first
prenatal class. I was the least pregnant
person there and probably had the most experience with yoga, so I felt like I
could push myself a bit harder than the rest of the women there. Which was weird, I didn’t want to seem like I
was showing off. But at the same time,
before I have that big ol’ belly I might as well work hard.
Stretch marks: Nothing yet.
clothes: A girl I work with who has a 2 week old
gave me a whole bag of clothes, and man are those pants comfy! I think I’m going to take some to my
conference this week to wear. I have
bought a few shirts and have a few more ordered, but haven’t started wearing
complaints. Except if I’m going to go to
the bathroom in the middle of the night, I would rather it happen at 3am then
5:30 when I only have half an hour left to sleep!
cravings: Still just food! I had been craving chicken wings, so Ryan and
I went out on Friday for them and some hot fudge cake. In Ryan’s words “that’s one happy preggo”
very many of them really. My back has
been pretty sore.
miss: My body. This stage has
been pretty tough for me. I know that
it’s all part of pregnancy and I knew that the feeling fat stage would come,
but as an avid exerciser who works hard on my body it’s been hard to get
dressed in the morning and feel good about myself.
loving: Pregnancy in
general. Even though lately I haven’t
felt pregnant at all and wonder if there’s still a baby in there, pregnancy seems
to really agree with me. I could do this
3 more times Ryan! (hint hint)
looking forward to: Having a bump of
Best moment this week: Ryan and I finally agreeing
on names. We aren’t going to share them,
and there’s still the possibility that they could change I guess, but for now
our names are picked!
