I’ve been feeling a lot more movement lately. It is tiny and you can’t see or feel it from the outside, but I love it. I’m also getting to that point where I am basically hungry all the time. I feel like I am never actually full and end up eating every couple of hours. I pack a lot of snacks! I am FINALLY in the second trimester and starting to feel more like my old, peppy self again, which is a very welcome change.
About 144 last time I checked, which puts me about 12 pounds over pre-pregnancy weight. It’s so strange because my weight gain is right on point with my first pregnancy, but (as you can see) I am ALL belly this time!
Exercise is becoming a more regular part of my life again now that I am back to my old self for the most part. I taught two Aqua Fit classes, attended two yoga classes, two CrossFit classes and I completed a 1.5 mile run. I completed this week’s CrossFit Open workout on Friday evening with Kevin as my judge. I stuck with scaled again this week because the RX version included bar muscle ups, something I can’t even fathom doing when I’m not pregnant. Here is what I did:
It felt pretty good, too. The jumping chest to bar pull-ups were not easy and I can tell I run out of breath more quickly than normal so I tried to keep a steady pace throughout the workout. I was really happy with my score. I’ve surprised myself a lot this pregnancy with what I’ve been able to accomplish in the exercise department. I just hope I can keep it up!
Kevin and I got to do one of the yoga classes together at the reopening of the Speed Art Museum. I had to modify a few things (no backbends or handstands), but it was a good workout and I felt so relaxed after.
My 1.5 mile run was a part of Four Barrel CrossFit’s fitness and nutrition challenge. The belly was definitely bouncing as I ran, but it really felt pretty good. I had to do the last 1/2 mile on the track and my time was considerably slower. I absolutely hate running indoors.
I’m not having many symptoms now that I’ve been on the Reglan for almost two weeks. My digestion/nausea is pretty much gone and my energy is still good. I’m still feeling a bit of round ligament pain now and then. My only “symptom” is that my belly seems to have taken on a life of its own! 🙂
Not many. Same old stuff…just the things I was eating a lot of when I was really sick. For some reason, I can’t have any kind of milk either. The thought just disgusts me. Like I find myself craving cereal every now and then, but the thought of milk entering my body is so gross to me right now that I can’t even enjoy a bowl. 🙁
Not many. Sometimes random ones just hit at weird times. Like I haven’t thought about queso this entire pregnancy, but then my friend Jessica mentioned how much she craved queso when she was pregnant with her daughter and now I am staring at the queso with drool hanging from my mouth every time I see it at the grocery store. #pregnancyproblems
No much change here, either. Still a bit of tossing and turning just to adjust and get comfortable, but mostly I am sleeping well. I sneak in one or two naps a week, as well. Glorious, glorious naps!
Looking Forward to
Actually, I was mostly looking forward feeling like myself again so I’m just happily enjoying the honeymoon trimester. 🙂
