Apparently, blogging hasn't been really at the top of my list lately. I see I haven't posted anything since my last bump-date...4 weeks ago! Eeeks! Don't worry, I've got a few posts planned for the next few weeks, and you can always look back at my favorite recipe or workout posts for more Home Field Fitness fun!
So here we are, well into the third trimester, 32 weeks and it's getting REAL! It's hard to believe that in less than 8 weeks (we have an induction scheduled after the due date to insure "Coach" will be here!) we get to meet this little Miss!
How many weeks - 32 weeks
Size - The size of a squash! A big one! About 3 3/4 lbs, over 16 inches long and now has hair and finger/toenails!!
Gender - It's a girl!
I'm feeling - Good! Some days are harder than others, but it seems like that has more to do with the fact that Little Miss Mak is "sleeping" in her new big girl bed and with that has come some pretty sleepless nights! I'm excited to meet this little addition, but I still get emotional about how little time I have left with my first baby, but I know that things will be ok once there are two!
Cravings - I feel like I've gotten pickier lately, I have kind of a sensitive stomach and not as much sounds good to me. I still can stomach pretty much anything, and since my family went to a new sushi place (without me) - I can't stop thinking about Sushi Burritos!
Fitness - I am slowing down still, but keeping up! Half the time my workout is a quick, hot walk around the block with the kiddo and pup, and I'm back to 2 days a week of teaching and doing Moms in Motion. I try to get to the gym on the weekend for some elliptical and weights and we've been swimming a lot! This mama is always moving!
Sleep - Some nights are better than others. Some nights I'm up constantly with Miss Mak, other nights, she sleeps and I lay there awake. Others still, I sleep like a baby (the baby I hope to have, not the baby I do have now). I've been getting a few naps a week cuddling with the little Miss as well.
Mood - Happy I think most of the time?! I hope? I know my patience suffers right now and I'm super indecisive. Someone just make-all-the-decisions for me please!!!
Clothes - I've grown OUT of about half of my maternity clothes. Ugh! I'm almost at my first pregnancy highest weight so that's a little frustrating, but I actually feel really good so I can't complain. I've got a favorite pair of jean shorts that get worn 95% of the time if I'm not in workout clothes or a swimsuit.
Stretch Marks - Nope!
Belly Button - Still in! Woohoo!
Best Part - Miss Mak is starting to "get it", and that's really fun. Our friends just had a baby so she's had the chance to meet another itty-bitty, and loves to hold and help with her. It gives me hope! She talks about my baby in my belly and likes to "watch" for her to move. It's also been fun getting all of our newborn clothes washed and ready to go!
Worst Part - Really, just being uncomfortable some days. My belly gets in the way of basically everything, especially being near the counter or holding Miss Mak. I've also struggled with circulations in my legs and have some pretty painful veins, but I've been managing it really well with oils. Finally, I guess the indecisiveness. See? I can't even decide on the worst part!
