Taking pics in the hall got my doodles excited. “Something is happening! Attack!”

Officially can’t button my coat. Spring needs to come soon!

belly 18 weeks

How far along? 18 weeks
Baby’s size: about the size of a sweet potato and about 5 1/2 inches.
Total weight gain: I don’t want to say. It can’t be right! (8 pounds)
Clothes: Shirt from A Pea in the Pod. Leggings are basic leggings from Target (non-maternity). Boots are Cole Haan from a few years ago. I always get compliments when I wear them! Would you believe that I bought them in NYC when there was 2 feet of snow on the ground and they were on clearance for around $100…down from $300 something. Chevron necklace is from Hannah Naomi.
Feeling: Hungry. On Saturday my stomach growled all day. Like 45 minutes after I ate lunch I was hungry again.
Workouts: Can’t believe I forgot to mention this on my previous 2 pregnancy posts! I’ve consistently worked out 3 days per week during my pregnancy so far. Before I got found out I was pregnant my workouts were 4 days a week…I basically cut out Sunday morning because I like curling up with my breakfast in front of the TV more. I usually do 2 spin classes and a prenatal yoga class. In the past 2 weeks I’ve only gone to 1 spin class and I went to a Barre class instead. Talk about sore! It’s no fun to be pregnant and sore but I guess it’s good pain. Anyway…I’ll start sharing my workouts from week to week. Last week (Feb. 17-23) I worked out 5 times: 40 minutes/3.6 miles on the elliptical, 1 hour spin class, 1 hour prenatal yoga class, 30 minutes/2.5 miles on the elliptical and another 1 hour spin class.
Funny: I cut the padding out of one of my bras so I could wear it. I obviously need to go shopping! I don’t know what size to order so I need to go into a physical store. I tried to shop at Target hoping to find some inexpensive options but they were all ugly and cheap feeling. There was one bra in the whole store I kind of liked and they didn’t have a size that fit me.
Cravings: Coconut anything. Granola. Avocados. Chocolate…Kind bars sometimes do the trick…other times part of a dark chocolate bar with almonds must happen.
Drinking: Vita Coco pure coconut water with pineapple. I bought 9 of them because Whole Foods had them on closeout at 3 for 1.37! Deal! Zevia Ginger Ale. I quite drinking soda about 2 years ago but had a craving…at least it’s naturally flavored. Decaf coffee in the morning. Water by the gallons.
Looking forward to: Getting to the halfway mark. Only 2 more weeks!
