Happy Forth of July Weekend!!!!! If you can’t tell from all my exclamation marks I’m very excited! There are actually two reasons for me to celebrate this weekend. One is obviously the holiday, the other being that it’s now officially July and I only have 14 days left, give or take!!!!
How Far Along: 38 weeks
Health/Fitness: I’ve still been motivating myself to workout at the gym and at home. My typical routine includes walking on the treadmill, using the elliptical machine, and also lifting weights. I find that I’m tiring out very quickly these days and have definitely been taking naps, however I’m still pushing myself and for that I’m proud.
What’s New: There’s really not too much else to report. After my doctors appointment this week, where I found out I’m 3 cm dialated, but 0% effaced, I realized that I’m just in the waiting game stage and it’s starting to suck. Therefore, I decided to take a step back to a piece of motherly advice I use to recieve a lot, and that’s, “if you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all”. I have to chuckle because that’s to the point I’m at. I really have nothing good left to say, other then I’m almost done and will get to hold my son very soon. Oh my gosh! That sounds so strange to me. My son. I can’t believe in about 2 weeks I’m going to be someone’s mother. It’s actually difficult to believe and makes me wonder where time goes? I don’t feel grown up enough to be a mom, but I guess you never really do.
So this will probably be my last exposed belly shot I share; mostly bc I’m feeling very large. However I’m very thankful that I don’t have any stretch marks; at least for now.
Today also marked my last day of training others at the gym, at least for now. I still plan to go in for my own workouts, so hopefully I’ll see some of you around, but if not, enjoy the rest of your summer and I’ll be back to training in September!
