Well things have been going good here. No big news as to boy or girl yet...I will know more at my March appt. The food is getting under control finally and I am happy to say that I haven't gained much weight at all this pregnancy which is the first in either of my previous pregnancies. I am still fitting in my normal clothes, I have popped a bit but since I lost so much before getting preggo the clothes are filling in moreso now. I know at some point maternity clothes will be inevitable. I am hoping I can make it to spring before I have to invest in more clothes. I am in my 19th week right now. The cravings have slowed down big time, I don't have a large appetite as much either. Feeling very consistent movement from the baby now, which is reassuring and wonderful.
Been keeping my workouts light, just walking, light cardio and light weights, just so that I don't lose all that muscle by July. I feel good and I am still able to move really well. Food has been good and I am really looking forward to getting it right with this baby and baby food when the time is right. I wish I knew this much when I was preggo the first time. I could have spared myself a lot of grief with food and fights with my kiddos. The older ones are coming around. They don't have much of a choice because they are only 6 and 4 but we have spent a lot of nights sitting at the table and crying over the favorite foods being gone. Now that that is out of the way they have gotten used to it. They should by now it has been 5 months since I went primal. I am thankful I won't have to battle this front again with the new baby, because they won't know any different.
So looking forward to some warmer spring weather, tired of being cooped up in the house and working out indoors. I know it is coming the days are getting longer, now if they would just warm up a wee bit it would be good for some brisk walks. I sooooo am looking forward to that. I am very pleased how this pregnancy is going and feel so much more in control than I have ever been with it. Can't wait to find out what I am having and even moreso can't wait to actually hold this little bub in my arms.
