It’s been a pretty crazy week between events at work and TJ’s birthday/work travel prep.
Had a check-in with the OB this morning; she said the heartbeat sounds really strong, so we’re in good shape!
Been using my ClassPass as much as my schedule allows. LOVED a TRX class I took at Sandbox Fitness. All of their classes take place in a giant sandbox, reducing the impact on joints (pregnancy bonus #1) while increasing the challenge of balance (pregnancy bonus #2).
Tried YAS for the first time yesterday. I liked the idea of it… the cycling room is in a big warehouse style space, and the instructor had a Scottish accent so I could barely understand a word that she said during the spin portion. The yoga portion was fine, although I had to modify about 10 minutes of it because we were supposed to be on our backs. I didn’t get the chance to tell her I was pregnant so I probably just looked like a crazy person.
Got a Stich Fix, but I’m lame and didn’t take any pictures. Overall, the maternity stuff was WAY pricier than I was willing to spend (they sent me a $140 jersey dress – maternity size and it was a little big on me anyway; cocktail cut, but still!) and I ended up keeping a regular sized maxi dress that I liked (but still thought was a little pricey for a jersey maxi) so I wouldn’t lose the stylist credit. The stuff was cute, overall. One top I really liked, but it was more of a fall/winter style and I don’t really need that anymore. It’s already turning to summer this weekend here!
Not that I’ll be here… headed to Miami Thursday morning for a mini-babymoon during TJ’s work trip. We’ll only really have one full day to ourselves, but it’s better than nothing! I’m looking forward to getting a break for a couple days. Hopefully we’ll take some pictures and I can show off my maternity shopping finds.
I got this shirt and shorts at Old Navy for 30% off!
Bumpdate – 17 Weeks
Total weight gain: 3.5 lbs. total
Stretch marks?: No, but I get very itchy
Maternity clothes: Did some shopping at Old Navy (t-shirt, shorts and a dressy maxi) and kept a casual maxi from my Stitch Fix.
Belly Button in or out?: Totally still in
Sleep: Decent. I don’t sleep well alone, so having TJ gone is a huge bummer, but so far I’m exhausted enough that I can at least fall asleep initially.
Best moment this week: Spending Saturday afternoon shopping at Big Lots, Target and Ikea for home stuff, and getting baby ideas.
Worst moment this week: Monday morning post- fettuccine alfredo. I had to cancel my first client and spent a LOT of time in the bathroom. It wasn’t pretty.
Miss Anything? Sleeping on my back
Movement: A few fluttery popcorn moments here and there
Food cravings: Starburst jellybeans, frozen fruit bars, goat cheese & bacon (together), pasta
Aversions: Most meat (chicken especially), cooked vegetables, certain coffee
Have you started to show yet: Yep, but to most people I probably still just look chubby. It’s not hard yet.
Symptoms: Round Ligament Pain, mild headaches, fatigue and lots of peeing.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Pretty moody, but trying to be happy!
Workouts: Loving TRX at Sandbox Fitness, but still running and doing regular stuff at the gym.
What I’m reading: Turnaround Bright Eyes by Rob Sheffield – pretty good, but sometimes he’s too mushy and emo, even for me.
Looking forward to: The roommates moving out so we can organize our stuff a bit more. Our Miami trip in two days!
