Symptoms: There have been a few days in which I’ve felt a little bit dizzy now and again. It’s usually when I’ve gone more than 4 hours without having a little something to eat. I’m noticing a pattern that really the only sign that I’m pregnant is eating for the needs of two. #Blessed
Changes to My Body: I can tell that I haven’t been workout as hard for the past several weeks. Certain parts of my body that were smooth are a little more soft. It’s been a little difficult getting used to this change, mentally, but I know that it’s all part of the process for a wonderful outcome in the end. Plus, anything that I find uncomfortable about my body is something that I can tackle when the time is right.
Weight Gain: Not sure about the numbers, but have felt a body composition change: fuller hips, and less defined waistline and muscles.
Workouts: I am still walking about 6-9 miles a day, depending on if it’s a cardio day or not. The days that I go to the gym are spent focusing on either upper or lower body. Here are a few of my routines:
Cravings: Honey Crisp apples, pineapple, Chinese chicken salad/tangy salad dressing, orange juice, and still loving my sweet potatoes.
Aversions: None! The streak continues! #16WeeksInARow
Overall I’m Feeling: Positive and anxious! We have a 3D ultrasound in 8 days (not that I’m counting) and we cannot wait to find out the gender of our baby. It will be interesting to see if the various at-home gender tests are accurate in their prediction of a boy.
Purchases: We have been very fortunate that our parents/extended family love us so much. We have been able to add crib, rocking chair and ottoman, play yard, and high chair to our nursery.
Looking forward to: a speedy, yet quiet 8 days!!
