As Requested a Pregnancy Progress Pic

Friday, August 16, 2013

So, here goes nothing. I have had several requests for me to post progress photos of what I look like at this stage (about 8.5 months now). This picture was taken last week. I insisted to my husband that I wouldn't set foot in front of a camera unless I had on some nice clothes and makeup! LOL! I'm totally embarrassed by all the weight I have gained with this pregnancy. emoticon But, I guess afterwards, I will have a pretty big goal to reach.



I was doing really well for a while about sneaking in exercise here and there and eating healthy. Well, in the last couple of months, I have just not felt good. My eating has been sporadic at best due to horrendous heartburn and exercise is just plain hard to do with the lack of energy. I have been fighting off a cold this week too which just doesn't help. Have had some family issues to deal with as well, so my motivation to do much more than get by these days is lacking. I'm still working full 8 hour days and we are still racing against the clock to get everything ready.

And wouldn't you know it, my baby "dropped" this week. My understanding is it's not too terribly long after that, that a little baby makes his/her way into this world. I'm really to a point that I am so tired of worrying about the little stuff; I just want my baby to be born healthy and SOON! I'm so excited to meet this little tiny human!!!

I apologize for not being a better spark friend lately. I have taken the time to read some blogs, but I haven't necessarily commented on them. This time has just been so hectic for me and I'm sure it won't settle back down for a long time. Just know that I do care about each and every one of you and I hope you don't give up on me. I already have big plans for restarting my weight loss journey once I am healed and adjusted to some degree after giving birth. So, please don't give up on me! I will need your support more than ever when that time comes. Have an amazing weekend! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Looking awesome! Great advice by Amanda there! The baby dropping hopefully will help with the heartburn. Maybe eat smaller meals throughout the day, and making sure you are propped up good with pillows before lying down.
This is so amazing, soon you are going to be enjoying a little new life you created!!
No worries about getting around to your Spark friends. We will see you when you get a minute!
I can't believe you are still working this late full time on top of trying to get everything ready!! Sorry to hear about your relatives acting up, you would think they would be more supportive at this time!!
Hope you feel better soon! Take special care of yourself!!

    BEAUTIFUL!!! And how exciting for you!!!! The drop means you're in the home stretch now! Good luck with everything, and this may sound weird -- but ENJOY your birth process! It's a truly amazing experience, and it's all over so quickly that we tend to forget soon after, so keep a little journal by your bed and write down as soon as you can EVERYTHING you want to remember about the birth and the few weeks after. Believe me, with sleep deprivation and just the general excitement of having a newborn, if you wait too long, you WILL forget some of the precious details :) I kept a journal in the nursery, and would steal 10 minutes here and there to jot down my thoughts, and I'm sooooo glad I did because 2 years later, I barely remember those first few weeks! Give yourself at LEAST 4-6 months after the birth before attempting any kind of structured activity, but go walking with baby as often as you can. You heal physically after about 6 weeks, but your brain and body are going to be TIRED for a few months. It's a good kind of tired, but a tired that can lead to injury if you push too hard for a rigid schedule of workouts. Walking is EXCELLENT -- and walking with a stroller will bring all the neighbors out of the woodwork to come see your new little human! Good luck with it, and have fun!!!
