Anyhow, it's just crazy how the days keep on rolling by! I'm feeling a little unprepared. I mean, Baby Boy's room is just about done, (and I should have some photos up of that soon) but I don't have nearly enough things for him. I haven't even bought diapers yet. Everyone seems to ask how I'm feeling. I guess that is just what people ask when you are carrying around a child the size of a watermelon...lol. Well, I've been feeling pretty good. I still have energy and that is the most important thing to me right now since I have such a busy few weeks ahead of me. I'm praying for the energy to hold up for a bit longer! But what I don't say when people ask politely how I'm feeling, is that even though I'm feeling "pretty good" lately, that is really just the polite and quick answer. Because if I had to sum it up, that is how I feel. Again, there is a whole lot more going on over here than I share with the everyday asker. Like I have some serious Restless Leg going on. The same thing happened when I was pregnant with Scarlett. Third trimester was a rough one for the Restless Leg Syndrome with her as well. Fortunately I only get it at one point in the day. Unfortunately, it's when I lay down to go to sleep. I'm not sure what is worse, that or the nausea in the first trimester. I NEED MY SLEEP! However, I am lucky enough to have discovered that a warm bath does the trick and so it's become my evening ritual to take a warm bath every night while I crunch on a cup of crushed ice. Why would I be chomping on ice you ask? Well, that is from my low iron, or so I'm guessing. Craved it with my first pregnancy and seems to be the same this time around. Working out is getting pretty hard to do as well. Thank God for Tracy Anderson because I'm not sure I would still be working out if I didn't like her Pregnancy Project so much! I find myself modifying things since my belly seems to be a bit bigger than hers but I am still doing it.
This week at the doctors, I lost a pound from last week. I've gained a total of 27 lbs. I'm assuming the weight loss has to do with my loss of appetite. The second trimester was the trimester of "Give me more food, I'm still hungry!" I couldn't get enough food! Over the last couple weeks, that feeling has dissipated and I'm finding myself full after half a sandwich. The doctor wasn't concerned with my pound loss. It made sense with my appetite calming down. With Scarlett I gained a total of 28 lbs but I'm up 28 lbs about now and I still have a several weeks to go...I have a feeling this baby is going to be bigger than his sister.
Some days, I just feel....blah. Days that I don't really feel well but just can't pinpoint what is bothering me. On those days, I rest. A lot. Or as much as a toddler and a full time job allow. One of the those days was Saturday. But all that rest on Saturday did me some good because Sunday I woke up feeling chipper and made pancakes for Scarlett and breakfast in bed for Ty. We spent the majority of the day outside riding bikes and setting up patio furniture. We even went to the greenhouse to order some plants and take a peak at the growing flowers. I've been living in my Mox. If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that I am a huge fan of these shoes. Especially with this pregnancy. My feet feel a little swollen (like they weren't wide enough already) and I'm all about the comfort right now. These shoes mold to my feet and make walking a little more comfortable.
So today was an absolutely gorgeous day here in New York and it just puts you in one of those great moods. We stayed outside most of the day and I am looking forward to more beautiful days outside with not only my favorite two, but the new addition to our crew....
Have a great week everyone!
