37 weeks pregnant… considered full term!
21 days to go!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update.  I’ve been crazy busy these past couple weeks, not to mention extremely drained.  I’m hoping this little guy holds off from coming any time soon,  this momma is slacking on getting my house organized and ready for another baby. I work better under pressure so obviously waiting till last minute is something I’d totally do! Ugg 😛

Beginning weight: 118lbs (height 5’1″)

Current Weight: 140lbs

Gender:  Boy!!!

Baby Names: Ugh this is SO hard!!!  Two we have picked out are Bostin and Ryott.

Baby is the size of a Winter Melon!

Maternity Clothes? A few pieces but mostly yoga pants! Definitely getting uncomfortable and none of my tees fit… so I’m counting down days till I pop lol!

Sleep? What’s that? Lol i haven’t slept this entire pregnancy unless I take benadryl.

Linea Nigra? Very light,  can’t even really see it.

Stretch Marks? Not any new just old ones.

Symptoms:
Shortness of breath, Probably due to my boobs quadrupling in size and accounting for 90% of my weight gain lol!! 😉

Heartburn/Acid Reflux has become VERY annoying. 

Braxton Hicks contractions are very frequent.

Baby boy moves like crazy, and often gets hiccups. 

Morning sickness has decided to make it’s way back into my world. Which makes eating and drinking difficult.  Same with the heartburn!

Workouts?  With getting contractions early I’m playing it safe and sticking to stretching, yoga movements,  and my normal daily activities (running our gym, training clients, and chasing a toddler around lol).

Diet? I’m still following IIFYM, with macros at 80-100g fats/ 400-450g carbs / 110-120g Protein / 35-50g Fiber …it’s almost become difficult to hit these daily due to my stomach shrinking or being smashed lol. NOTE: this isn’t normal for most pregnant women, I worked for months before I got pregnant to build up my metabolism.
Lately my numbers have been much lower, not by choice.  But morning sickness and acid reflux make eating near impossible right now.

Supplements?
Prenatal Pill
Vitamin E
ProSupps Liquid Aminos PSXXIII
ProSupps Karbolic
ProSupps TC-F Isolate Protein
Black Strap Molasses
Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar (helps acid reflux… among other things)

Dark Chocolate Covered Bananas

These chocolate-covered treats taste as good as a store-bought popsicle, but they’re packed with vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and antioxidants!!

All you need:
• 8 popsicle sticks
• 4 medium bananas cut in half width-wise
• 1/2 cup of melted dark chocolate chips
• toppings of your choice… nuts, coconut,  dried berries,  candied sprinkles

Directions:
• Stick the popsicle sticks into the bananas
• Drizzle them with melted chocolate
• While chocolate is wet sprinkle toppings over them.
• Finish up by popping them in the freezer on a wax-lined baking sheet

★ 30 minutes they’ll be ready to serve!
