It’s Wednesday and I figured I owe you some updates! My sister had off yesterday so I got to take full advantage of having her around…and spend time with her. Since she got a new job and has been working insane amounts, I haven’t seen much of her. Of course I feel like she’s been at the new job forever, but it has been a month tomorrow.
Yesterday she helped me get some work done for Pure Bliss, which I was yet again, so thankful for having an extra set of hands. SO much more gets done that way and I’m so grateful to have a family willing to help so much. We also took a detour to Old Navy. I wanted to look at their maternity section and she needed pants. Luckily my pants still fit, because I basically mourned the fact there is no such thing as maternity “fashion” at the Old Navy maternity section.
So to combine a little What I Ate Wednesday with my 14 week update…
I’ve been eating: still the same egg on a brown rice wrap with ketchup and fruit for breakfast. I’m starting to get sick of it, but have no desire for anything else at all. I’ve still been eating a lot of fruit, which I’m okay with because sweets are basically non-existent. I’ve had a couple bites of things here and there and they basically give me an immediate stomachache. Not fun.
Other foods: I’m still indifferent to dinner. Two nights ago I made salmon and then ate about 1 ounce of it because I was disgusted by it. I ended up having a salad in a brown rice wrap grilled on panini press. Last night I made meatloaf and Lundberg Farms brown rice couscous which was amazing. It’s hit or miss for me with that meal.
Still hating: smoothies, oatmeal, peanut butter, beans (except lentils).
Clothes: I bought 3 maternity tops from GAP and I am obsessed. I LOVE long tops and even though I don’t really need them I still love them. Most of my pants fit, but I did use the hair tie trick (loop a hair tie through pant loop and secure) on my fav pair of white jeans after they were cutting off my circulation. I bought some tees from Old Navy, but I just got them in a size up than I usually would buy. I’m sure I will laugh at these in late summer, but for the next couple of months they will work.
Belly: My belly is definitly starting to round out to me. I also have a pretty nice muffin top going on in some of my pants. It’s hard not to feel huge sometimes at the end of the day, but I know right now, I’m so far away from huge.
Sleep: Sleep has been SO much better this week. I’m still decently tired by 5, but I don’t feel like I’ve been completely hit by a bus like I have the past 13 weeks.
Exercise: Still going strong. I ran on the treadmill yesterday and I was SO bored. Still doing 3 days of running (with some walking breaks if needed), 3-4 days of weights and spin/elliptical. I need to commit to stretching more though!
Other pregnancy symptoms: minor headaches and the start of heartburn at night. Crankiness is at a low this week (in my opinion). Joy!
Next doctor appointment: Friday! I’m excited to go and see what’s up! And Danny is coming with me this time too.
