This past week, I survived my first week of Summer Break with both boys home all day. We have had to get creative on what we do to stay busy and not get cabin fever. We weren't as good with the nightly walks as we should have been, but we are finding plenty of things to do at night to keep them entertained. I would love to venture to the pool but Mason still can't swim by himself and I just can't take care of 2 boys by myself. But I really want to go to the pool. Maybe we will get an inflatable one here, but big enough for me to hang out in too!
Total Weight Gain: 12 pounds total weighing in at 249.4 pounds. I lost .4 pounds this week.
Symptoms: Lack of sleeping well. Having to go to the bathroom more often again. Baby is getting BIG!
Baby’s Size: Acorn Squash (~9 inches, 1.7 pounds)
Maternity Clothes: Yes, bottoms need to wear maternity or stretchy pants. Tops I wear maternity now and my bigger t-shirts. I am really on the hunt for good pregnancy exercise pants to wear, as I don't have any and I just stretch into my old ones. Oh and a good nursing sports bra. Yeah, I'm on the hunt!
Stretch Marks: I already have a ton that I got when I gained weight years ago. So nothing new.
Sleep: HORRIBLE! I have been tossing and turning, and I have restless leg syndrome. I am just kicking like crazy while I sleep. Plus she is starting to move at night more and it wakes me up, or when I flip over it wakes her and she kicks me to tell me to go back to sleep. She is a feisty one!
Miss Anything: Sleeping comfortably flat on my belly or back! Sleeping through the night.
Cravings: Nope. Not craving anything this week. I have just been trying to make sure I am eating what I am supposed to be eating. Shakeology everyday. Enough veggies, protein, fruits and right kinds of carbs and so forth.
Aversions: nothing yet
Excited About: Matt got to feel her kick for the first time this past week! YAY! I knew it was close! Today I have my monthly check up. After this it will be one more check up in 4 weeks then I go to appointments every 2 weeks. Kind of crazy! Getting closer!
Workouts: Got in all my workouts 5 days a this past week, which is awesome! We weren't as good on doing the walks every night before bed but we are still trying. My regular workout schedule is: Monday and Wednesday 21 Day Fix yoga & pilates. Tuesday and Thursdays, the Beachbody On Demand Active Maternity 2nd Trimester workouts and Fridays are my FREE PICK day. I can choose to do whatever I want. Lately it has been doing the 21 Day fix yoga routine again. Also I am also trying to get Diary Of A Fit Mommy's Fit For Two 2nd Trimester workouts in daily, they are an added bonus on strength training for me.
