September 2nd update
Happy Labor Day weekend!! So this week I am well into my 2oth week and feeling great! Still Tiny and not showing that much but had my 20th doctors appointment and everything is right on and the baby is growing perfectly, I am on point with my due date so the reality is, I am just showing small, As of now… we will see how things evolve over the coming weeks. Crazy to think of how much growing there is still to come, with less than 20 weeks to go. That is a long time though, if you think about it.
2o weeks feeling great and loving the evolution of my relationship with my Son. Knowing it is a boy, helps me bond on a different level, as if I can put a face to my belly 😉
I have been still waking up in the middle of the night, eating my first meal. This is becoming the norm and I am quite use to it by now. I bought a body pillow, hoping that this may help me get a little more comfortable and sleep better. We will see in the coming days. Hopefully as things progress and change, so will this sleeping pattern. I hope to get a handful of good nights sleep before those days are long gone…
On another not so positive note, I have done something to my glute/piriformis and have been unable to do cardio. I noticed a pain in my glute on Wednesday.
I could hardly walk, it hurt so bad. I didn’t feel it when it happened but I am thinking it is from the incline fast walking I have been doing. I have been doing so great with my cardio, loving it but I think my body (not my mind) is telling me I need to slow down. Even though I have the energy to go for it, my body is carrying some extra weight, even thought I am not that “big” in the belly. I don’t think it is use to the added 7-8 pounds and things change. I think this is my body telling me something and I have to listen. I attempted to slow down and take down my incline on Thursday but had to stop. I have taken the rest of the weekend off and most likely will be taking another few days off. I don’t want to really hurt it so I am out longer. I think the pool may be calling me again. I have been so into my walking and how great I have been feeling that the pool has taken a back seat but I think I will have to take my treadmill walking to the back and bring the pool back to the front 😉 Things feel much better than Wednesday/Thursday but still taking it easy. I will keep you posted.
