Baby #3: Week 14

April 2, 2018

How I’m Feeling: For the most part I am feeling pretty good. My nausea came back for a few days at the beginning of this week, but it’s mostly gone now, YAYYY. I’m just more so starting to feel the changes on the inside starting to happen. I’ve had a lower abdomen cramp happening on and off, and I’m sure it’s because things are starting to stretch now a little bit. I’ve been sleeping pretty good though, not a lot of night time insomnia. But I do just feel mentally tired. Even though I’m getting a decent amount of sleep, and my energy levels are good, my body itself just feels tired.

How I’m Changing: Even though I haven’t bumped up to maternity clothes yet, things are starting to get a little tight. I had to do the hair tie trick on my pants the other day. And soooo thankful that it’s been warm enough to wear dresses, because then I don’t have anything pinching on my belly. My skin is going through another hormone shift I feel like, now that I’ve hit the second trimester. I’m breaking out in eczema patches all on my arms, which could be from me not drinking enough water….but my skin is just starting to get dry and itchy. I’m starting to have very little patience right now too. I get frustrated super easily, but I’m also extremely emotional. I am crying a lot this week over almost everything.

What I’m Eating/What I’m Not Eating: Fried eggs and trader joe’s “everything but the” seasoning, YUMMMM. Soy sauce and relish, not together…but I’m practically drinking soy sauce right now and just eating spoonfuls of relish. And even though I usually am a snacker, lately I’ve been eating a later, bigger breakfast, and lunch and dinner, without much snacking. Ohhhhh and toast with cream cheese!! Ok, still on the not eating list is broccoli, spinach, smoothies, sweets, and protein bars.

Total Weight Gained: 6lbs [started at 128, now 134]
Workouts: Still doing my same normal workouts, just taking a little extra time now, and a little less weight.
Sleep: It’s not terrible, just wish I could sleep longer
Most Exciting Moment: making it to the second trimester
Baby is the Size of a: lemon
Miss Anything? breathing easily

Holy cow. I know I’m not on here as much as I used to be but I didn’t know you were pregnant. Congratulations.
