This week, I have been suffering from my pulled round ligament that I pulled while pregnant with Collin. As my belly is growing the round ligament is getting more and more stretched. I just get these super sharp pains that suck! They really are horrible. I have to take it easy when I squat down to pick stuff up. I just have to be careful when I move sometimes. I am also not pushing my body as much during yoga so that I don't over stretch it. I feel so flexible right now (thank you to the hormone relaxin!) but I know that if I overdo it again, then I won't be able to MOVE! Listen to your body! That is the best advice!
Symptoms: Lack of sleeping well. Tired a lot of the day, and round ligament pain from my pulled ligament from my last pregnancy. It sucks!
Baby’s Size: Eggplant (~9.2 inches, 2 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! (Wearing my new Fabletics tank and sports bra in these pictures.)
Stretch Marks: I already have a ton that I got when I gained weight years ago. So nothing new. I am using Honest Company belly balm right now though to help my belly stretch so I do not get any new ones.
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! I have been trying to combat poor sleep with listening to my hypnobirthing as I fall asleep. It seems to be helping, I am having better nights than bad.
Miss Anything: Sleeping comfortably flat on my belly or back! Sleeping through the night.
Cravings: Veggies. Anything with lots of veggies looks amazing to me. It is kind of insane that I have turned into a veggie craving lady! I mainly 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. And some indulgent treats here and there.
Aversions: nothing yet
Excited About: 3rd Trimester! We are getting so close to the final stretch!
Workouts: Got in almost all my workouts 4 days a this past week, which is awesome! Still trying to get in the nightly walks. Workouts included: 21 Day Fix yoga & pilates. Beachbody On Demand Active Maternity and Diary Of A Fit Mommy's Fit For Two 2nd Trimester workouts in daily.
