So what's new with the baby? Well need less to say...I have grown. At my last appointment I had barely gained three pounds in a month, but I know will definitely gain at least four this month. Although I have not been eating a lot more, it seems like every calorie goals straight to growing Liam. Exercise wise, I have been working out almost daily. Usually I do Zumba, walk, elliptical, or do spin class. I am still doing moderate lifting in the gym, plus the occasional swim. Here is my picture from 23 weeks and now at 26 weeks. My belly button is going to pop any day now! Also got some stretch marks...boo....
Morgan sent me flowers at work! I felt so loved and special. They were beautiful. Mom also sent me flowers so my house is looking much more colorful. Thank you!Movement:
I have noticed Liam is moving more and more now. Although they tell you to only sleep on your side, I think he gets uncomfortable because he starts squirming immediately after I turn over. Also, he really likes to kick me at work, especially in the bladder...As far as my movement, I am getting slower when it comes to getting up and down. Sometimes Morgan has to push me up off the couch. However, I can still shake it in Zumba class!
Well I have a confession, the other night Morgan and I split a vanilla milk shake and a donut for dinner. But I promise most days are not like that! We eat very healthy and I always include 1-2 servings of fruit and 2-3 servings of veggies daily. Sometimes I honestly don't have an appetite because my stomach has pressure on it.
Sleep is often non existent. I have a hard time getting comfortable and an even harder time waking up in the morning once I do fall asleep. If anyone has suggestions, send them my way! I am already using a body pillow.
Our upcoming events/goals:
- Finish unpacking the house
- Paint the baby's room
- Conquer Babies 'R' Us
- Sign up for birthing class
- Morgan is training for an Ironman in October
- Work on some Pinterest crafts
- I have to take the diabetic screening next week...gotta drink the nasty sweet drink :(
That's all for now! Thanks for reading
