Week 13: Just Coasting Along Now
Friday, April 01, 2011
Not too much different going on here. I maintained at the scale this week. Well I was down 0.2lbs. It seems like I gain, gain, gain, then lose a little bit. But I'm thrilled with my progress so far. I think at 24 weeks that I actually look small. I'm going to be around a lot of people on Saturday so I'm interested to see what they say when I tell them how far along I am. Actually with baby#1, I rented a minivan to take to my baby shower out of town and the people at Enterprise was surprised that the baby shower was for me and that I was 32 weeks pregnant at the time. Even the nurse at the OBs office would say to me "where are you hiding this baby?" It was funny because I thought I looked huge.
Here is me at 24 weeks
So I met with the personal trainer on Tuesday and we have another session on Monday (so no stepping that night). We ran out of time so Monday's session will be focused on Core work. But I did learn some new moves that I can do to keep up my lifting and not be uncomfortable. He also asked me about my eating and I just laughed at him. I told him that sweet stuff including fruit and yogurt about 75% of the time still makes me sick. But he just went off when I told him that I drink soy milk. It wasn't because of the estrogen controversy, it had something to do with corn or corn products. I think I'd heard it before but it was just too much for my pregnant brain to process. He also said that I shouldn't eat gluten because a lot of the population is allergic and doesn't know it. Our gym offers an allergy test to see what types of foods that you are allergic to. I can see the need for that but will something that I think about doing after baby.
Well so much for having nothing to say. Have a great week and hopefully by next weekend Spring will be in full force
