If you haven't been checking my blog regularly
shame on you...
I'm pregnant! :)
8 weeks and 3 days to be exact.
My last weigh in was a couple weeks ago. Sorry bout it. I've been sick, nauseous, exhausted, and have crazy food cravings and aversions. So basically, I've been trying to eat well.. But I'll be honest... My eating has gone down hill. I really just have to eat SOMETHING
so I don't start puking.
So without further adieu.
I'm 6'1 for the record.
Starting Weight (1.2.2013): 230.4
Last Weigh In (4.18.2013): 211.4
Today (5.8.2013): 211.6
I am so pleased.
If I can stay around there or close to there in my first trimester I will be a happy camper.
I've discovered that the secret is eating small meals every 2 hours (Thanks Heather
twinsy for the suggestion!) that way my stomach doesn't get empty and I don't feel sick.
This pregnancy is so different than when I was pregnant with Hazel. With her I was sick 24-7 no matter what I did. It was awful. And it was in August in Statesboro (aka the hottest, most dry place on Earth.) I literally had to tell all of my professors (I was still in college) that I was pregnant and not just skipping class because I couldn't go an entire hour without having to go to the bathroom.
It was torture.
So I am thankful there is relief this go around. But the difference is my utter exhaustion. I could/can fall asleep at any given second of the day. I may or may not put on Mickey Mouse and dose off on the sofa a couple times a day. Hazel has been an angel
for the most part and has been content.
I just feel like the worst friend ever. I don't/can't leave my house really. I'm so exhausted no one would want to be around me anyway.
But I have been going to the gym
other than last night. I've been alternating between Body Pump and RPM. It's been great and my goal is to go 5 times a week... but I'm totally not stressing if I don't make it. It's hard enough just to get up to clean my house so I'm not really worried about it. I know I'll get my energy back in a couple weeks. I just need to give my body the rest it needs.
In other news my belly is starting to poke out. Yikes. I guess it's true that you show much sooner with the second. I am sucking my stomach in and it still pokes out.
I know it's small. But it's there.
I hope ya'll are all staying on track and I can't wait to read all your successes.
