2nd trimester - and Sparking back!

Thursday, March 15, 2012

Eep! So, since my last blog entry we didn't TTA very well.

On December 8th we found out we are expecting and due August 18th! The first trimester was nerve wracking after loosing Lil Bit in September. Not to mention the constant nausea! I got out of the habit of tracking my food because I didn't feel like thinking about food, much less writing down what little I ate.

But - I eventually started feeling better (and more energetic, and more like myself again!) and here I am at 18 weeks! A week from tomorrow we find out if Baby S is a boy or girl!

My weight was staying in the range the Dr gave me pretty well, but this morning it jumped up. Time to track my food again! My goal as an already over-average weight mommy is to only gain about 15 pounds (which would put me at 200.4 from where I was the day I found out). I've never been over 200 pounds, and I'm really hoping I can keep from going over.

But, not to the detriment of our little one. What IS good for our little one is for me to eat healthy foods - and there is nothing like tracking on Spark People to make me want to put healthy things in my mouth even when I'm craving things like jelly beans and root beer. And to get back on the exercise! I've done my prenatal yoga DVD "here and there" but I need to be more purposeful about exercising. My Dr. recommended walking 1 mile a day. I'd like to alternate the walking (maybe more than 1 mile) with the yoga. Now if only my schedule would cooperate!

    I really LOVED swimming when I was pregnant, swam a mile three times a week during second child's gestation....

    and your fall due date would fit perfectly for that, if you are so inclined...

    Walking is good, too, but being pregnant is hot work, and swimming is easy on joints! Highly recommend!
