Sorry for lagging on the baby bump update but I finally feel like this tummy is really taking off! In the last two weeks I have noticed a big difference! Pregnancy so far has been good. No real morning sickness and as long as baby is healthy thats all i'm concerned about! Funny how you always hear people say that and then when it happens to you it really becomes your only concern. I've gained about 6 pounds so far and only cravings have been for acidic stuff like lemon, grapefruit and ginger. I started feeling kicks a couple weeks ago and have it to say it THE MOST amazing experience I have ever had in my life! It all just becomes so surreal and I feel instantly connected to this little bean growing inside!
17 weeks (and belly button has been on the way out since week 10! WTH thought that didnt happen till the end haha)
(And my pre pregnancy abs for motivation after baby bean arrives ;)
A lot of you have asked about my eating and working out since I've been pregnant. The working out has been cut back quite a bit. I do cardio twice a week (at a much less intensity) and strength training once a week. I find myself much more tired and getting getting winded quickly. I also did not like my first gym here so I signed up at another and am hoping that will help with the motivation.
As for eating I definitely have not been in the "feeding for two" mentality and think thats a huge misconception. I am lucky to not have crazy sweets cravings. I have indulged a few times but still stay on track with my normal healthy eating and have added a couple hundred extra calories a day. Even more so now than before I am trying to make sure to buy only organic foods. When you have a growing baby inside you it definitely make you rethink what you put in your body!
*Sorry for the pic overload. Ill try to update on the bump more frequently xo
