Well well well….here we are. Just a few days left in week 26 which means in about two weeks I’ll be jumping head first into the third trimester. Holyshitballs.
Every time I do something I say… this time next year I’ll be holding a baby while I do this and I can’t wait. I’m also excited to find out what the little bugger is going to look like. My guess…red hair since Sam has a red beard. Only time will tell.
Week 26 has been pretty uneventful except that I’m getting hungrier by the day and walking up stairs is getting exhausting. Oh and sleep…I love sleep.
I’m currently weighing in around 145 which means I’ve gained close to 15 lbs! How fun. My belly is getting rounder and bending over is getting tricky. Sam told me I need to squat down to pick something up now…where does he learn this stuff?
I did some swimming this week at my parents pool and that was great. Except I found holding my breath is tough. I used to be able to swim down and back in one breath…I think I took like 20 breathes this time. Whatever, I’m breathing for 2.
I also questioned how the baby doesn’t get filled up with water while I swim…what if there’s a leak in my belly button or something?
Workouts this week ranged from fun to quite fun. My favorite was a 7 mile run/hike at the state park. I woke up at 5:30 am and was the only human out there. Gosh that place is peaceful. Quality time with my little guy.
I made it to the gym two times this week and did some squats, rowing, light wall balls, and a mix of other stuff you probs don’t care about. I also did a couple workouts at home and spent an abundance of time weeding my garden. I also did an early morning run Wednesday which is always a super great way to start the work day.
Food. Let’s talk food. I experienced Cane’s Chicken for th first time this week and it was fantastic. They literally only have like 4 different size options for chicken which Sam and I thought genius! I ate all 4 tenders…and coleslaw…and french fries…and a root beer. I’d do it again any day.
I also got the most delicious pizza with my coworker at work! It was a personal size 10 inch and everything a pregnant lady could ever want…don’t worry, I ate half one day and half the next…for real.
I did have a funny dream about sushi this week. I can’t fully remember it because pregnancy brain is real but I know the sushi was live and crawling around the plate and I had to pluck it’s tentacles to get it to stop moving. WTF.
I’m on vacay until next Thursday so I’m pretty jazzed about that. Can’t remember the last time I’ve had this much uninterupted time off. We’re celebrating my mom’s retirement so hoping to swim tons, eat 10 smores, and hang with family. It’s supposed to feel like 110 degrees today so I’ll probably be camping out in the freezer.
Have a safe and happy 4th and I’ll catch ya on the flip side.
