Enjoying Life one RUN at a Time

Bump Date: 28 Weeks! 


And just like that we enter the third trimester! I’m hoping that this trimester goes as quickly as the other two have, but I have my doubts…

Baby Updates: 

Baby T is the size of a head of cauliflower! Approximately 16 inches and 2.5 pounds. Aside from growing by leaps and bounds, our little munchkin is practicing blinking, coughing, sucking, and hiccuping. 

Weight Gained: 

Depending on the time of the day I weigh myself, 9-10 pounds. I definitely feel like it is much more than that though. 

Workouts: 

I’m happy to say that I’ve been able to get consistent, solid workouts in the past couple weeks. Running has been going well and I’m even feeling stronger while running. (Is that weird?) Maybe the gained weight has helped me build more leg muscle…

 

Symptoms:

This past week, I’ve noticed some lower back aches, just a little now and then. (Back massages are amazing- so if anyone wants to give me some, that would be fantastic.) Aside from lower back aches, I’ve had a little heart burn, now and then, but it hasn’t been too terrible. Baby T has been moving around quite a bit too, which makes for one happy mama. 

Food Cravings: 

Most of the same things: salads, cottage cheese, block cheese, sweet potatoes, watermelon, hummus, and grapes, and homemade iced coffee. 


Food Aversions: 

None to speak of. Yay! 

Gender Suspicions: 

Still thinking girl…and since I’ve been thinking that way from the beginning, most likely, I won’t change my mind. 

Looking Forward to? 

Our Bradley class tonight- we are going to be practicing labor positions, which will be quite interesting. 

Any Baby/Pregnancy Related Purchases? 

Nothing yet, but I am planning on registering this week! (If anyone could tell me where you registered at/how you liked it, that’d be awesome!) 

Miss Anything?

Sleeping on my back and fitting into my regular pants. However, I am so thankful for a healthy pregnancy, regardless of the uncomfortable moments.
