I am trying to make it into the gym at least 4 times a week. I really need to push myself to go especially as I get closer and closer to my due date. So many of my "fit-prego" friends have told me it really pays off to be active throughout the pregnancy. I am hoping it will help me bounce back after Brody arrives. I am starting Jamie Eason's Live Fit trainer off of bodybuilding.com with my sister Olivia. I am changing the diet, and making my own since I have to consume more calories. After all, I am growing a human ;) I will post updates, and reviews on the program on this blog. The first workout was great so I hope this helps to motivate me.
I can't wait to start on Brody's nursery, and I have decided I want the colors to be gray and yellow with cute elephants! We have a few other things we want to finish up before starting that fun project. Brandon has re-stained our kitchen cabinets, and put new appliances in our kitchen. It looks completely different, and I am so in love with it! He is the DIY King! I will post pictures once it is completely done. I guess Brandon wants this house to be absolutely perfect before Brody comes. He is going to be such a great Daddy!
How far along: 24 weeks
Weight gain: 10 pounds!!!
Maternity clothes: Just rocking a few pair of jeans that still fit, but sticking to leggings and comfy shirts. Anything warm!!!
Stretch marks: None yet!
Belly button: Still normal, but I don't think that will last much longer
Sleep: It's alright. Battling some kind of cold so that is keeping me up a lot
Best moment this week: Being able to see my sweet boy on the screen move around at the ultrasound. My sweet friend Heather came with me. I am so lucky to have the best friends in the world!
Worst moment this week: This cold ....that continues to linger
Miss anything: Intense cardio. My doctor told me to not get to the point of being out of breath.
Movement: Only when I am still. I have an anterior placenta so the movement is very cushioned. I'm not complaining ;)
Cravings: Food. Really anything and everything that is not healthy. Any kind of dessert!
Queasy or sick: Feeling great! I have been so lucky. I am a little more tired than usual, but I was not expecting pregnancy to be this easy and fun :)
Looking forward to: Picking out Brody's middle name, and of course I can't wait for May!...and warm weather!!!!
Here are a few photos :)
