LOL my last post was at 11 weeks to go…my time has been flying. Here we are with less than 8 weeks to go and part of me keeps forgetting I am going to have to push that baby out again.
Actually part of me keeps forgetting a lot. With Harry I feel like my brain was there and fully functional. Baby #2 is the complete opposite. I’ll ask Sam a question and then ten minutes later ask the same question not realizing I just asked the same thing.
I forget things at work. I forget items at the store. I couldn’t even remember Harry’s birthday at his well check on Wednesday. I’m sorry buddy, it’s not you, it’s me.
So let’s start with Harry. He weighs in at a whopping 24.5 pounds and is 33 inches long. He loves reading, playing outside, drinking coconut water, eating garbanzo beans and Mac n Cheese, cars, sports balls, his dog Ruthie, and giving kisses. He’s getting better at putting himself to bed (thank the lord). He likes long walks around the neighborhood in the chariot (Burley). He’s just a jolly ole joy and I love spending time with him.
Now for Baby Girl. She is measuring right at 32 weeks and is still a wiggle monster. Her heart beat as in the 130s. She like eating (especially DQ in bed) and is overall loving life.
I am starting to get more and more winded walking up hills. I also crawl into bed before 8 pm most nights. Epsom salt baths have been giving me life. My low back has been sore but Dr. Shelby (the most amazing human and chiro) has been taking care of me.
I’m still working out when I feel good but am taking two strict rest days a week. This was really tough for me at first but now I look forward to these days. My workouts consist of squats (keep that pelvic floor engaged), presses, and smaller movements like lunges and step back burpee’s. I’m pretty much done running for now but that’s OK because family walks are where it’s at.
I have actually been craving veggies a lot lately and am trying to eat more plant based things. My mom got meals from Purple Carrot and they are amazing. I’ve also been craving blizzards, margaritas (LOL), mac n cheese, salt and vinegar chips, and fruit. Quite the variety.
I’m looking forward to spending Mother’s Day with my family and not doing a darn thing (well maybe a walk). I’m just trying to take in and enjoy these next 8 weeks as a family of 3 (well 4 with Ruthie!).
I hope you have a fantastic weekend. I look forward to hopefully catching up next week.
