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 😦 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.

24 Weeks Pregnant!

Baby Bump #4 Update! 
24 weeks pregnant!

Beginning weight: 118lbs
Current Weight: 125lbs

Gender: Boy!!! ♥♡♥

Symptoms: 
Doing great! Baby boy is growing at lightning speed and I feel him move all day long! My appetite has been decreasing a bit probably due to my stomach being smashed lol. AND on a very positive note my insomnia is getting a little better… now I wake up at 4am instead of 1am. That’s progress! My doctor did say this is very common with pregnant women he suggested taking Benadryl or Tylenol PM. 

Workouts:
I am slowly getting back into working out. I stopped Dec 17th because I was getting contractions afterwards. I have been doing light weight with 20-30 reps. And lots of bodyweight movements. So far so good! Also I make sure I have a gallon of water in before I even think of working out!! Even slight dehydration can cause contractions.

15 Weeks Pregnant!

Baby Bump Update!
15 going on 16 weeks pregnant

Size of baby: Baby is about 4″ long, and roughly the size of a naval orange.

Beginning weight: 118lbs
Current Weight: 114lbs (gained 2lbs after pigging out Thanksgiving Day!)

Gender: Still unknown…. everyone thinks Girl

Movement: Just started feeling little kicks a few days ago 

Babys ♥rate- 154

Cravings: Reuben Sandwiches!! I could eat for breakfast lunch and dinner…. everyday!

Symptoms: Nausea has eased up a LOT! I’ve been getting headache which I think was caused by the Progesterone I was taking. I stopped taking it a few days ago so hopefully those go away too. 

Workouts: My workouts have not changed much. I do NOT work Ab’s at all anymore or do movements where I’m flat on my back. I have horrible ab separation so I avoid them completely. I use caution and listen to my body so if I’m not feeling it… I stop.

Disclaimer! My hubby said I shouldn’t post this. Since my “bump” isn’t really visible. I’m not posting this to rub it in or make others feel bad, It’s just an update. I think I am one who carries my babies towards my back. However this is the first time my belly wasn’t huge at this point. So continuing to workout has helped tremendously. On a side note…. come 6pm I triple in size so maybe I’ll post one of those pictures!

12 Weeks Pregnant!

12 weeks preggo!!

Beginning BW: 118lbs
Current BW: 111lbs… up 2lbs 🙂

I can happily say morning sickness has somewhat subsided! Yay!!! I can finally eat again!! Thank goodness I threw out my kids Halloween candy… those Almond Joys kept disappearing! 😉  Now I’m just dealing with a massive case of insomnia.  Most likely from the progesterone I am taking. 

Diet: I am still following iifym and right now I’m at 60g fats 200 carbs 115 protein. Trying to slowly bring food back up. 

Training: My training hasn’t changed at the moment. I’ve lowered my weight drastically. Mainly because I’m weak from weight loss and taking a month off. Weight training 3-4 times a week. My training is anywhere from 30-60 mins.

Cardio: I do about 3-6 mins warm up on the elliptical or stepper before each workout.  It’s getting cold so I always like my muscles and joints nice and warm when I train. I also do hiit cardio 2’s a week on non training days.
