25 Weeks Pregnant


Monday, September 06, 2010

Wow, I seriously can't believe it's been 10 weeks since I wrote the last blog! Typically, time seems to be crawling by, but man, it doesn't seem like it's been that long since I wrote!

Things are going really well so far. No pregnancy issues as far as I'm aware of (knock on wood)! I am slowly getting rounder and for the most part, I love it. :)

I've only gained about 3.5 lbs so far, which worries me, but at the same time, it's nice not to feel "fat." My doctor says he thinks I'm growing fine and is not concerned by the little weight gain. I am still walking 30 minutes three-five times a week in addition to doing another 20 minutes of cardio (elliptical/stairmaster/statio
nary bike) two-three times a week at the gym. I also do some light arm machines. I may start to increase my food intake if the doctor wants me to, but I really don't have much appetite increase. I'll eat a lot on the weekends when we go out to eat, but the weekdays, I probably am not getting enough in somedays. I do manage to get my three servings of vegetables and two servings of fruit at least five days a week, which is a vast improvement over pre-pregnancy!

I'm really excited for these next 15 weeks! We bought our last piece of furniture for the nursery on Friday and all we have left is a lot of the decorations that we are going to get when we visit my in-laws in Georgia in a couple of weeks. We still have a ton of baby stuff to buy, but hopefully a lot will be knocked out by baby shower gifts!

Hope everyone is doing well!

    Not Sure if you know but Spark has a sister site called babyfit.com its amazing! Close to the same as this site but its geared toward preggo pppl and also if you breastfed they have support for that. Its amazing I met alot of great ppl when I was preganat with my son and you should check it out! It gives you lots of tools on how to maintain your weight while babys on board and has cute tickers to track when babys due, they also send you updates each week on what babys doing its pretty cool. They also have due date teams you can share your stories and than once babys born the whole team moves back over here to spark :) Good Luck and COngrats! emoticon
