Checking In & Baby S Update

Thursday, January 03, 2013

I can hardly believe it! I'm almost 1/2 way done with this pregnancy! I feel like just yesterday I was announcing that I was pregnant! It's crazy! It's definitely been a whirlwind couple of months. My husband left for deployment, we found out 2 weeks later that we were expecting and now we are moving into a new house and getting ready for baby. And it's so hard to believe that I've done it all by myself. I mean, of course I've had some amazing friends to help along the way and my baby brother also just got stationed out here in Sunny Cali with us. BUT STILL! I've gone through so much since my husband left! And while of course I wish he was here so we could go through all of this together, it has definitely made us stronger. It has made ME stronger! emoticon

So far I'm doing pretty good at continuing my workout routine, of course modified. Especially since walking to the bathroom every 2 seconds gets me winded. I get to the gym a couple of times a week so I'm pretty happy with that. I am going to start prenatal yoga soon so I'm hoping that will make me feel better too. I lost about 10 lbs in my first trimester and I've only gained back about 4 of that so far. And I'm JUST NOW starting to get a little bit of a baby bump. And it came overnight! (But I still kind of just look chubby and not actually pregnant.)

Here are some of my weekly pics to keep my hubby and family in the loop:

We were supposed to find out the sex at 17 weeks but the baby wouldn't cooperate! Definitely taking after my husband already! emoticon I'll take my 18 week picture tomorrow so I'll post that soon!

I hope all of my Spark Friends are doing fabulous! I definitely miss everyone and hope to get on here a little bit more often, especially once I can start working out for real again! Happy New Year everyone! A new beginning for us all! emoticon
