I’ve officially made it to my third trimester!!!
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.”
