How far along? 19 weeks
Baby’s size: about the size of a heirloom tomato and around 6 inches in length from head to rump.
Total weight gain: 8 pounds
Clothes: My top is a maternity ribbed knit jersey tank from Old Navy. Jeans are AG Adriano Goldschmied from A Pea in the Pod. Cardigan is from Target. Belt is from my closet…I don’t remember.
Feeling: Good overall but my lower back has been bothering me. If I sit in a straight backed chair or a booth at a restaurant I have to stuff my coat behind my back for support. Does that mean I’ll need to carry a granny lumbar pillow once the weather warms up? Oh no….
Workouts: Last week (Feb. 24 – Mar 2):
- 1 hour spin class
- 1 hour prenatal yoga class
- 2 hour long serious house cleaning session which I count as a workout 🙂
- and another 1 hour spin class
Last week: Kinda boring around here. It’s way colder than normal here. The average temp in Feb/early March is in the mid 50’s…when you consider that we have snow from 2 weeks ago still on the ground you know it’s been pretty freezy! I can’t wait for spring and planting my flowers and herbs!
Cravings: Also known known as “what I get excited about eating”. Salsa. If I make myself 2 scrambled eggs for lunch I eat about 1/3-1/2 cup of salsa with them. I also went crazy on the salsa with some tacos we ate last week. I’ve traded in my yogurt bowls a couple of mornings for Whole Foods brand organic O’s with homemade granola, sliced banana and either 1% milk or almond milk. The best!! I made some killer BBQ sauce from a Pioneer Woman recipe. It was all thick and molasses-y and garlic-y…I licked my fingers a lot! I also can’t get enough oranges and I eat one everyday.
Drinking: Decaf coffee in the morning. At least 80 oz is water. When I work out it’s more like 100-120 oz. Still loving the occasional ginger ale. If we go out to eat I usually order unsweetened iced tea with lots of lemon…but I don’t drink it at home for whatever reason.
Looking forward to: Next week! I will be officially at the halfway point and we have our anatomy ultrasound scan scheduled. This is usually where you find out the sex of the baby but we are waiting to be surprised.
