How I'm feeling: There is no denying I'm pregnant with the belly I'm sporting. I went to the OB this week and heard the heart beat and had my belly measured, which was right on track. My next appointment will be the lovely glucose test to screen for gestational diabetes. Heartburn is a regular occurrence in the evenings and papaya extract has been a savior (easily found in the vitamin aisle).
Baby: is the size of a cantaloupe (~10.5 to 11.8 inches, 12.7 to 20.8 ounces). Interestingly, the same length and weight range the app said baby was last week.
Weight gained: 15 lbs
Ran 20 min straight without stopping to walk! #preggovictory
What I'm wearing: Much of the same, but I did buy a pair of regular Zella yoga pants from Nordstrom Rack that just feel so much better around the belly than my Lululemons. The waist band is wider and the fabric is just really comfortable.
Baby preparations: Ordered a breast pump through insurance (yippee skippee!). The manfriend touched up the baseboards in the spare bedroom so they wouldn't drive me crazy anymore. And we looked at rugs yet again. I can't seem to find any I like that are soft and in the price range I want to pay. Any ideas? So far I've looked at Home Depot, West Elm, Pottery Barn Kids, Ikea, etc.
Cravings: Nothing really. Just my normal eats.
For a little Friday Fitness...
I dare you to try this 'Thailand Tush' workout from the Tone it Up girls. I know it sounds silly, but you won't be laughing when you get to minute 8 or so of this video. Your glutes will be on fiiire. Don't say I didn't warn you!
And with that, I hope you're having a fabulous Friday. I'm heading to Portland to see my friends Taylor and Randie get married at the courthouse!
