28 Weeks Pregnant!

Baby Bump #4 Update!
28 weeks pregnant!

Beginning weight: 118lbs (height 5’1″)
Current Weight: 128lbs

Gender:  Boy!!!

Baby is the size of an Eggplant!
His current weight is approximately 2.4lbs!

Maternity Clothes? Nope not yet!

Sleep? What’s that? Lol

Linea Nigra? Nope not yet

Stretch Marks? Not any new just old ones.

Workouts?  None lately,  in previous weeks I posted about how I was getting contractions after workouts. So I slowed down. Now I am getting contractions regardless of working out ūüė¶ so I’m really taking it easy.  I want this baby to bake as long as he can! 
This has been a struggle for me, physically, mentally and emotionally.  I wanted so badly to exercise this entire pregnancy. I was in a routine of working out and I miss the energy boost I’d get and the endorphins. I see posts with other “fit moms” lifting heavy while pregnant and weeks away from delivery. But I know it’s more important for me to go full term and deliver a healthy baby. 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). I telling myself I have 12 weeks left.  That is nothing compared to a lifetime.  I’ll have forever to workout after my little guy gets here! 

Diet? I’m still following IIFYM, with macros at 60-85g 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.

Supplements?
Prenatal Pill
Vitamin E
ProSupps Liquid Aminos PSXXIII
ProSupps Karbolic
ProSupps TC-F Isolate Protein

Snacking Tips

I have had several people ask me about “snacking” and how to make healthier choices. Here are a few tips I use for myself.

snacking

1. Have your snacks planned or prepared in advance. Doing so will keep you from saying “what should I eat?”. You will have it there, it’s convenient and READY!

2. Set snack times, in other words plan a the time of day you will snack. Even the healthiest snacks can set you back if you are eating them all day long.

3. Be sure to drink lots of water throughout the day. Hunger can be mistaken for thirst. Flavor your water if you like with lemon, citrus, or a sugar free drink mix. Sometimes a big glass of water will cure hunger pangs.

4. Always ALWAYS check lables! “Low Fat” or “Fat Free” doesn’t mean the product isn’t fatening. Always look at the calories, carbs, sugar, fat, and protein content.

5. Evaluate your diet, don’t starve yourself all day just to eat a candybar and bag of chips at 4:00pm. You need food, your body needs food, your brain needs food. FEED IT!

Here are a few of my favorite snacks…
1. Rice Cakes
2. Gerber Graduate “Puffs” ~ Baby food yes, but for about 80 puffs there are 25 calories, 0g fat, 6g carbs, 1g sugar! Sweet Potato are my favorite!!
GerberPuff
3. Jerkey ~ Jerkey gives you something to “chew” on and always makes me thirsty so I drink more. Just avoid jerkey with tons of sodium and sugar (again check the lable)
4.Quest Bars
5. Sugar Snap Peas
6. Celery ~ I eat mine with cinnamon sprinkled on it.
7. Protein Powder ~ When in doubt make a shake, 1 scoop of protein and water will fill your belly.
8. Bell Peppers ~ Get all different colors and cut them up, seeing the bright colors can make you feel better about what you’re eating.
