|Little J is swinging in the background... I think she spent over 2 hours swinging on Sunday!|
Due date: August 2nd. Just about 3 months to go!
What I'm loving: It stopped raining just in time for the weekend, so we were able to spend a lot of time outside. Much needed by the whole family! I also had a really good week last week where I felt good most days and had energy. I only had to nap one day. With the extra energy, I was able to get a lot done last week. I sent this picture to Heather on Sunday night, because I was so proud of myself for actually finishing my weekly to do list! I can't remember the last time that happened.
What I'm looking forward to: My mom is coming to visit this weekend, which is always a lot of fun. Now that it's May, I can actually see the end of the school year in sight too! I'm excited to have a little time with just the girls to squeeze in some summer fun before baby joins us.
What I'm missing: Sleeping through the night. I'm up at least once every night. Sometimes I can fall right back to sleep, sometimes I'm up for quite awhile.
How I'm feeling: Overall, I'm feeling pretty good right now. My legs bother me if I'm on my feet for too long, but wearing compression socks has helped on bad days.
Exercise: Still getting 3 to 4 days a week of cardio, a mix of elliptical and run/walks. I feel so much better when I'm consistently exercising, but the elliptical is driving me a little crazy. I'm hoping the weather stays nice so we can get out on some evening walks.
What I miss: Real runs. I'm glad I've still been able to run a little, but I miss being able to run my whole route without needing to stop to walk.
Cravings/Aversions: No major aversions right now, thankfully! I've managed to cut back on the sugary cereal too :) I have been craving lots of fresh fruit, especially strawberries and pineapple.
Differences between pregnancies: This pregnancy still feels a little harder than my first two, but maybe I've blocked out the rough parts of the first two :) I'm a little worried about what the summer months will bring.
Other Thoughts: I'm at a point where I'm noticing that my belly is getting in my way. I worked on cleaning out some closets last week, and squeezing in to small spaces is not so easy anymore. Same for getting up after crawling around on the ground.
