A health recap of the first 20 weeks (very long)
Monday, November 02, 2009      1 comments

Well since I am halfway through the pregnancy, I though it would be a good time to reflect on how it’s gone so far, especially with diet and exercise, and reassess my goals for the second half. It’s been a long 20 weeks but they have also been ... Read more

The month of October has been a tough one. Between job dissatisfaction, sickness, travel and a general feeling of “blah” that I cannot seem to overcome, I haven’t been very healthy. I’ve done as much workout this month as I normally do in a lit... Read more
19 week appointment and Birth Class.
Wednesday, October 21, 2009      1 comments

Monday was our first birth class. It’s set up at the Midwife Group and it is for women who are due between late February and early April. Most of the EDD’s are mid March, like me. There are about 6 couples in the class, most of them from outsi... Read more
A Non Health Related Vent
Tuesday, October 20, 2009      5 comments

I apologize this is not a health related blog, though I am writing it for some peace of mind. So I guess it’s a mental health blog. I am really fed up with a particular friend who keeps throwing “home parties” trying to sell stuff I don’t... Read more
It’s been a really good day

Last week was pretty miserable so I am glad to have a good and positive day today. I was worried when I woke up that it wasn’t going to be so good. I didn’t sleep well last night and this new thing has started where the outside of my hips ... Read more
Weight loss, Yoga and Sleep ramblings

Huh. I lost a pound this week, putting me -3 less than my pre-pregnancy weight. I’m not worried though as my belly is rapidly expanding. Hopefully it’s coming off my big booty! I’ve read about women my weight not putting on any pounds during p... Read more
Calorie Yikes and Nursery Decor.
Tuesday, September 22, 2009      1 comments

Yikes. Yesterday was a 2400 calorie day. Even at my heaviest, those rarely happen. I blame my lack of willpower when it comes to orange nachos. You know, the ones you get at fairs and ballparks. The kind that have no place at a Mexican rest... Read more
Where did this belly come from?

It seems like overnight, a baby bump showed up. I’m a plus sized girl, so I already had a “natural” bump in that area. However, over the past week, it’s grown and there is no mistaking it for a small baby bump. It’s mostly obvious to me and h... Read more
Boo to sickness!

Ugh. I am finally starting to feel better, but yesterday was miserable. On Tuesday, I got the flu shot. I hemmed and hawed over it since I haven’t had anything other than a Tylenol since July. Still, most of what I read said it was ok to get... Read more
What a difference a week makes.

Yay! I am 14 weeks. It feels that each week is a major milestone! The past few days I’ve been off Spark as I had a friend in town and I was busy hanging out with her. It went well, though as always, my food choices needed help. We went ou... Read more
Second Trimester Happy Dance!
Tuesday, September 08, 2009      2 comments

I’m happy dancing as today I am 13 weeks. I have reached my second trimester! Woohoo! The risk of miscarriage drops significantly and apparently, my energy should be coming back (at least somewhat!). The last three months have been some of ... Read more
Last weigh in of first trimester

The Friday before a long weekend is THE WORST. This day is absolutely dragging. At least I am done at 3PM. Thanks to everyone for all their yoga, massage and other tips for dealing with the back pain. It’s amazing how much my Wednesday n... Read more
Yoga, Back Pain and Massages-Oh my!
Wednesday, September 02, 2009      3 comments

Monday night I tried my first prenatal yoga DVD. There is one class in Savannah, but it’s expensive so I am holding out until my Wednesday Power Yoga gets to be too much. The DVD was a good supplement. It was only 35 minutes and it was much m... Read more
I have got to start eating better.
Monday, August 31, 2009      3 comments

I took the “What the heck, I’m pregnant” mentality far too much this weekend. Half pint of Ben & Jerry’s in one sitting, mint Oreos, cool ranch Doritos, fried shrimp and deep dish pizza. Ugh. My workouts weren’t that great either. Formally, I ... Read more
Maybe that wasn’t the best choice of underwear…

Before I recap my 11 week midwife appointment (and explain the subject) I just want to confess a sin. I just ate a slice of German Chocolate Cake but it was the best. Freaking. Cake. Ever. Worth every last sugary, diabetes inducing bite. Some ... Read more
