Less than 50 days to go!
Saturday, February 25, 2012
Another month has gone by and I am that much closer to meeting my son and getting my exercise on!! I managed to only gain 3lbs ove the past 4 weeks so im pretty happy about that. Im actually getting pretty bored with food. Nothing ever sounds good anymore. I think I ate so much in the beginning that im just tired of all the junk. Which hopefully will help after im able to get my weight loss journey back on track.
I kept up with my goal of light exercise and weights although I slacked off this past week. I basically just do 20-30 mins of walk away the pounds for my cardio and then lift my measly 10lb weights for my arms. I have to get my cardio in first thing in the morning or I have contractions so ive become even more limited, but something is better than nothing.
My weight was 208.6lbs at the doctor on thursday. I originally didnt want to go above 200lbs then I moved that to 210lbs. I might be able to attain my 210lb goal because thats 210lbs goal is on my scale in the buff. We all know doctors scales are evil and always weigh us heavy. So im only using their number to see my total gain from the beginning of pregnancy. Which right now stands at 34.6lbs eeekkk. Which means im up 47lbs from my all time low. I try and look at it as I still weigh 85lbs LESS than my starting weight and then i dont feel so bad.
If I go by my doctors EDD I have only 6 weeks left. I however think my due date is a week later. At this point in my pregnancy I am pretty much done and go with her shorter time frame. Im ready to not be pregnant in every way shape and form, minus the actual having to go through labor part.
I was up at 3am and unable to go back to sleep so I made out an amazon registry. I mainly only make registries because of the 10% off you get 30 days before your due. I knew target did that but I didn't know amazon did. So I went ahead and simple one out of the things I still need. The 10% is only on things actually fulfilled and shipped from amazon so I was a bit limited. I decided to cloth diaper this baby to save money and for environmental reasons. I still have most of my cloth diapers to buy, but thats pretty much all I have left for this little one.
I also decided what im going to do for my about ready to pop maternity photo. Since our little one is pretty much due on Easter this year I decided to play into that. Im going to let my daughter paint my tummy like an easter egg. So i'll have photos of her doing that and then depending on how well hers turns out I might repaint my belly for a better egg shot.
Here is my 8 month belly shot
And then I found a picture from my first pregnancy at 8 months. Im probably 60lbs lighter than the first pic but my belly is much bigger this time around. I dont mind really because I didnt actually look pregnant until about this time with my daughter. This pregnancy I've actually looked it since the very beginning.
And then my daughter hugging baby bus, which she does quite often lol.
