I'm feeling good so far! I was really tired in the beginning and still kind of am, since I don't sleep through the night anymore, but I can't really complain. It's been a completely unremarkable pregnancy. This is my first, so I had no idea what to expect.
I'm still showing up at the gym and doing what I can. Some things I'm definitely having to modify at this point, but I figure the longer I can keep plugging away at it, the better off we'll be. I've gained about 15 pounds so far. My OB has been ok with it, except for that second check up right after the holidays where I gained 7 of those pounds that month!
I'm super excited for you and I'm glad to hear that you are having smooth sailing as well! 529 days ago
