How Far Along: 28 weeks

I thought I had a stomach at 18 weeks. Lol…

Cravings: I sadly gave into a craving or two this past week.  It’s not completely my fault though, because someone on the message boards I read, posted something about donuts and that was it.  After I saw that, I had to have one, or two, or maybe three (donut holes, and just one regular donut).  Jeff’s office also threw us a baby shower and they special ordered cupcakes, so I may have had a few of those as well.  I am currently on a sugar detox.  Especially seeing I never got back my glucose results from my test last week.  I figure that no news is good news!

Exercise/Fitness:  It’s honestly been one of those not so good weeks; which I hate.  What I mean by this is that I’ve only made it to the gym once this week, other than to train; but I’ve tried my hardest to keep at it and have put myself through some great circuit training workouts at home.  However, the past two/three days I haven’t been feeling the best.  I’m typically one who lives by the saying “no excuses”, but when I put on my heart rate monitor Tuesday, my RHR was already at 110, which is high.  Then, when I tried to do something simple, it jumped up to 157.  I think it goes without saying, that for health reasons, I decided to stop working out.  I thought that this was just an isolated occurance, but this morning, while I was training a friend, and just standing there, my RHR skyrocketed to 142 and when I sat down it was still around 110.  In addition to my sporadic high heart rate, I think I may be suffering a little bit from restless leg syndrome.  The reason I say this is because my legs have been getting a slight tingly sensation, which has made working out a challenge.  Hopefully these things will pass soon.  I hate being limited, but I only have a little while left!

To be safe though, I called my OBGYN, who informed me what even for pregnancy, this is not normal.  I now have an appointment to go see a regular doctor due to the fact that there could be some underlying heart issues.  What a great start to my Thursday.

What’s Next:  Besides my abrupt new doctors appointment Jeff and I are signed up to go take a tour of the labor and delivery unit at the hospital this Saturday morning.  I’m hoping that this will ease some of the nervousness I feel toward giving birth.

I’m also in the process of searching for and buying a new car.  I think I finally found one that will be good for about 2-3 years and then Jeff promises me that I can get an amazing new mustang!  I really want the 2015 limited edition 50th anniversary mustang with the cashmere interior package.  For now, I will drive a ford focus titanium.  It still has a sporty looking interior, which I love, it just doesn’t have the power of my mustang.

That’s all I have for now, I should be off anyway, so I can make my appointment.  I hope everyone has a great week and I look forward to seeing some of you at the gym.  “Push yourself, because no one else is going to do it for you.”
