Wow! Already 29 weeks. Cannot believe it. I cannot wait to meet my baby.
We still haven't found a house yet so I am stressed about that. Trying to keep positive that something comes out. We're running out of time and nothing seems to be coming on the market.
We also haven't bought any baby furniture yet as we were waiting until we moved into the new house. So getting a little stressed that everything is being pushed back. Worried about going into labour early...
But my husband assures me all is well. That it will take him one weekend to get the nursery ready. Plus he pointed out..we were planning on having the baby in our room in the bassinet for the first little bit. So that did calm me down a bit.
Saw the doctor last week...man I have gained more weight. I think I am going to get bigger then I have ever gotten in my entire life. Weird thing is that I don't feel as fat and ugly as I did before. I now weigh what I weighed when I began my weight loss journey 2 years ago. I still have a 11 weeks to go. And now isn't the time for dieting...the babies health comes first!
Yes- I am gaining more that I wanted to. But...I still have faith and confidence in my ability to take it off afterwards.
My one issue is sugar again. I am tired again this trimester so sugar has been a problem.
I stocked up on my favorite fruit yesterday. I am hoping to eat as clean as I can for the remaining 11 weeks. Meaning that I limit my sugar in-take and treats.
I think I can do it. This way I am hoping to only gain what is necessary for the baby over these next 11 weeks. I am hungry often but I am only going to eat good for you foods. I have been 80% of the time through-out my pregnancy. Now I am going to aime for 90% for the remaining weeks.
I am also watching my water intake. I want to make sure I am getting all my water to help with any swelling that I have read occurs in the third trimester.
I am really enjoying being pregnant. I cannot wait to meet my baby...and if I am really honest...I can't wait to get back into working out at the level I was before. It's amazing how much I miss it! This is what makes me feel confident that I will loose the baby weight - my body is wanting to do the intense workouts but I can't at the moment. Thus it will feel like a treat when I can after the baby is born!
So for now I am enjoying the last 11 weeks, trying not to stress about finding a house, and continuing with my walking and strength training routine.
