Ok…I know I need to get better about blogging and hopefully that will happen. haha! I am officially 20 weeks! YEA! We made it halfway. It still seems like there is a long way to go and a lot to do.
Not much has happened since my last post. We were able to go on a quick vacation to Jupiter, FL, which was really nice. We went for Labor Day weekend and had a great time. We got to make a trip to the beach, do a little swimming, and get some great seafood. Plus we got a much needed break from work and everything else.
The baby has been doing great. I have started to gain more weight, which is good for baby but still makes me nervous. I constantly hear from my family that the weight gain is good, but I still find myself checking my weight against those pregnancy weight apps and pregnancy books to see how I stack up. I haven’t started wearing maternity clothes yet, but I have been wearing a belly band with some of my pants. All of my shirts and dresses still fit so it hasn’t been too hard yet.
I have been disappointed that I haven’t been working out lately and I was so active before. I plan to try to get back at it this week, but we will see. I have done yoga a bit, but I know I need to do a little bit more. I need some motivation!
I have also been reading a lot of pregnancy books, maybe too many, but mostly ones recommended by friends and family. Currently I am reading the Mocha Manual, Magical Beginnings Enchanted Lives, Bountiful, Beautiful, Blissful, and Your Pregnancy Week by Week. I have also been tracking my pregnancy in the Belly Book, a pregnancy journal, which has been good for seeing my progress.
Hopefully I will be able to give some reviews on these books once I have finished them all. 🙂
Now we are in the home stretch and preparing for all the things that are coming up in the next few months…our shower, birthing & breastfeeding classes, Thanksgiving, and Christmas! It should be a very busy next few months.
Until next time,
