My photo this was week was taken post yoga, and I must say how freaking comfortable it is wear yoga pants all day long! I feel like now that my belly is getting so big I can justify not wearing actual pants.
Seriously though…it’s okay to wear to yoga pants even when not doing yoga…right?
This week we hit the big 2-5! According to my “What to Expect” app on my phone, the lil guy is is as big as an eggplant and should weigh 2lbs! That seems huge to me, and as I say every week there is still so much time left to grow. How much bigger are we gonna get?
I took it down a notch this week and kept it light and gentle with 3 workouts. I’m still hitting up yoga steady and strong. And as many of you mentioned the lil guy will probably come out doing yoga since I’ve been so consistent at it. I just hope that all this yoga will help with the birth and recovery. And in the meantime it puts me in my relaxed-happy place. ❤

I saw my doctor last week for the 24 week appointment and wasn’t sure what to make of the fact that I’m actually measuring 2 weeks farther along! She had me measuring at 26 weeks last week. She wasn’t too concerned, but actually happy to see that the baby is growing. She recommended that I get another ultrasound at my next appointment if I’m still measuring so much farther ahead than I’m supposed to double check the baby’s development.
Also last week I did my glucose test. I still need to call my Dr. to find out the results. I was given the tip from another pregger that the lemon-lime flavor was the best choice out of the three (fruit punch, orange & lemon-lime) sugary drinks. It wasn’t as horrible as I expected, but I hope that I didn’t fail because I don’t want to do the long 3 hour test. Ugh!
Just knowing there is a little person inside of me kicking and fluttering around brings absolute joy to my everyday.
I’ve noticed in the past week that I’ve been a little more emotional than usual, crying at random times, but overall I still feel pretty good. I’m keeping myself busy by pre-nesting everything in my life. I say pre-nesting because I think the urge to nest comes a little closer to baby’s arrival. And right now I’m just trying to accomplish anything and everything that I can so I don’t have to deal with it in the months to come.
I haven’t talked about my cravings the last few posts, mostly because I haven’t really had major cravings for anything except pizza and the usual chocolate cravings!
I’m becoming a major waddler! I find it hilarious that at times I feel so pregnant and can barely get around and other times I’m out there working on my fitness and somehow forget about the huge belly.
I still find myself staring at potential races and wanting to be training for something, then I remember I am training for something so much bigger than any running race. I’m training for a baby marathon! And just bringing it back to reality helps relieve the running and crossfit blues that I sometimes feel when I know I physically can’t do something.
Though all this time off really gets me excited for the future. I know I won’t be able to jump into any serious training post birth, but I’m looking forward to the days I can run freely and maybe even with our lil guy in the jogger!
