Goodbye 1st trimester

Thursday, May 15, 2014

I am officially 14 weeks today, out of the risky risky period! I finally posted on fb about the pregnancy with this photo my friend took for me. Check out my Heidi Klum maternity skinny jeans I found at goodwill Friday, score! The high school girls at my job asked where I got them emoticon They think I am around 22, which seems old to them, I am cool with that.

Still logging my calories every day and sitting around 2200-2400. Still hitting the gym 4-5 days a week and if not walking 10k+ steps at work. Doing what I can with what I got. Starving to death this morning. I had a whole mango with my breakfast lol The bread is homemade multrigrain. I mustered up the energy on Sunday to make two loaves for the week. Finally broke out this bread slicer I got at Goodwill years ago. Made pretty nice even slices for sandwiches.

Wednesday I got a flat tire in the middle of the day. I limped my car home at lunch and then broke out my bike to get back to work. So now I can say I rode my bike pregnant! It was only 2 miles. I miss riding my bike. The risks are probably too high considering a fall could be pretty bad. In a pinch tho it was nice to have my bike available.

My friend took some photos for me for my website. Not sure which one to use. These are my favorites.

I hope everyone is having a great week!

    Yaaay happy to hear the good news! This past Friday was my baby's 16tj birthday! Arrgh! I can remember being nauseous during my entire pregnancy.

All three photos are cute and I like the pose of the 2nd one - it just needed to be more in the shadowy part of the wall and then let the light at the end of the road help relight you from the dark. Or maybe a different part of the day. Could it be hit with a filter on that left slde to darken it so your face doesn't look as pale? I'm not that knowledgeable about photo manipulation software...

But still excited for you and Scott!!

    OMG I love all three of the photos in your green shirt - but I prefer the first or the last...I agree the middle one fades you out!

    It sounds like you are doing fantastic. You look great and are eating well. I loved all the pictures but for some reason I liked the top one of the bottom 3. The lighting was good. The colors crisp and clear. I liked the perspective. You to one side with the wall and path leading off to somewhere - the future. It seemed symbolic.

  Yay you are finally going to start feeling better! The 2nd trimester is the best part. You will start getting your energy back and will feel good all the time. :)

    Starving in the morning is better than puking in the morning :)

Sucks about your tire, but glad you got to ride. Have you asked your dr if it's okay? I can't imagine he'd prohibit until your last trimester.

Such cute photos!!!

    Congrats on the 1st trimester - and you look so good in that colour green!!!! I vote for the 1st and last photos, I think you show up more than the background in those. Middle one you kind of fade out.
