Technically this post is coming a few days late, because I’m actually 14 weeks and 4 days pregnant now. Jeff and I had a busy weekend though filled with working on projects in what will eventually be the baby’s room. I just didn’t have time to do all that and write a blog post.
The room is still a work in progress, and I have more to paint on the back wall, but it’s coming along.
I hope that all of you had a great weekend as well and that you’ve been sticking to a healthy eating and workout routine. I’vedefinitely been good about working out, however it’s restaurant week here in Charlotte, and we ended up going with our friends to a Brazilian Steakhouse for dinner on Friday night. I’ve never been to a Brazilian Steakhouse, so I didn’t really know what to expect. For those of you, who are like me, let me explain to you briefly how it works……they just keep brining you food. They bring you all different types of steak, chicken, shrimp, fish, etc. and before you know it you’ve eaten a ton! I think I was in a food coma most of the following day. I’m back on track now though, and it really wasn’t incredibly bad food, just a lot.
So, let me give you a break down of my week……..
How far along? 14 weeks, 3 days. Maternity Clothes? I still do not need any maternity clothes yet, however my favorite jeans keep getting more snug with each passing week. I know hat I’ll be sad when I can no longer wear them, but I also know that it’s for a great reason. My tops are getting a little snug too, but that’s mostly because they are all size small or extra small. I really don’t want to invest in more sweaters because spring weather will be here before I know it, so I’m trying to make them last. I also ended up buying a Belly Band, but I have yet to use or need it.
Missing Anything: I’m REALLY missing deli meat! I use to eat it as a snack all the time and I’ve definitely been craving it a lot this past week. Movement: Still no movement from the baby yet, but I can’t wait! I think it will help things feel more real! What’s Next: I have a doctors appointment this upcoming Friday, but it’s just for some routine blood work. Yuck! However, I’m really looking forward to going, because At the end of the appointment I’ll get to schedule my next appointment, which should be an ultrasound and we’re really looking forward to finding out the gender of the baby.
Exercise: I had a great week of workouts this past week. I ran a total of 14.25 miles, walked over 15 miles on the treadmill, and even did some weights! For me, being pregnant is not an excuse to stop working out. I’ve just learned where I need to let up some, and that there are certain exercises that I can no longer do.
I’d love to hear how you’re doing with your lifestyle goals, so feel free to leave me a comment. I’m also still training at the gym, and will continue to do so up until the baby arrives. If any of you would like to come and work out with me, please feel free to call or e-mail! I hope to see or hear from you soon!
