Yay for officially making it to 30 weeks!!! Hopefully I only have 10 weeks left, but I would absolutely love it if it were a little less; just not more. Mostly because I’m already uncomfortable and know that I’ll only get larger.
How Far Along: 30 weeks today and Griffin is suppose to weigh about as much as a head of cabbage.
Clothing: I’m just going to be honest and say that as much as I love that I am growing this amazing little boy, I absolutely hate the fact that nothing is fitting me anymore. Luckily my workout pants still do, but now that the weather is getting nice, I tried on my workout shorts, and had little success. I’m also trying to avoid wearing my favorite Lululemon workout tanks, because I don’t want to stretch them out. Therefore, I’ve started wearing Jeff’s workout shirts.
Some of my maternity clothes are even getting uncomfortable to wear now that it’s becoming summer. All I want to do is wear a loose fitting dress, and I only have a few to choose from. I could go buy more, but I just really don’t want to spend the money on something I will only wear a few more times. I did however buy a cute new dress for my baby shower at the end of the month, and to wear to a NASCAR race (the coca-cola 600) over Memorial Day weekend. Yes, I have to dress up to go to a NASCAR race, because we sit in the owners box. It’s kind of funny because we always get a lot of strange looks at first.
My Health: I’ve been waiting and waiting to hear anything about how my echocardiogram and heart rate monitor results came back; but I just figured that no news was good news, and I was right. Both doctors offices called me later on Tuesday afternoon, telling me that my heart was perfect and that I had no reason to be concerned about it. I guess it’s just like I thought, Griffin is crushing me from the inside. Lol…..
I did however have a really bad spell on Wednesday afternoon. I could feel my heart rate going up and I became very light headed, weak, and knew I had to sit down otherwise I would pass out. I also started seeing dancing yellow spots in both my eyes. It was awful and definitely something I won’t miss about my pregnancy. Luckily the spots only lasted a minute or two, but the spell itself lasted for about an hour. It’s more of a nuisance then anything else.
Exercise/Health: Despite Wednesday’s spell, I’ve really been into working out this week and also eating healthy. I didn’t prep big meals, but I did prep little snack size fruit and veggie bowls. I learned a valuable lesson with my last meal prep; Which was, that I prepped too much meat and it went bad before I could eat it all. I’ve also kept to working out everyday this week, and have even been overcoming little snack cravings. My personal workouts have been at home though, not the gym, because Jeff was out of town and I had to take care of the puppies in the mornings, which is when I like to workout.
What’s Next: Jeff and I are continuing to work on Griffin’s nursery, which should be done real soon. Hopefully we’ll finish up the closet this weekend (we are putting in built in shelves), hang up one or two more small things, and then it should be done. I’ll continue to post pictures once I have them.
I also have my last 4 week doctors appointment this upcoming Tuesday, and then I’ll be going every other week, until I believe week 36, then it will be weekly appointments. Sadly I don’t think I get anymore ultrasounds, although I really want one. It’s been forever since I’ve seen him, although I know that he’s getting big, because his kicks are starting to hurt.
You can definitely see where Griffin is living/growing and I know that a lot of pregnant people love being pregnant, but honestly I’m not really sure how I feel about it. I have some days where I don’t mind, and then I also have days where I break down and cry because this is the largest I’ve been in 6-7 years. I worked so hard to be where I was at and for those of you who have list weight, I know you understand. I also don’t like the feeling of not being in control of my body. In the end though, I know it will all be worth it, I already love him so much!
I guess that’s all I have to report right now. For those of you who are joining me in my May Challenge though, I’ll e posting next weeks daily workouts on Saturday, so make sure to check back and keep up the good work!
