Sorry for the lack of posts between last week and today. Things have been quiet as I am not running as much. I have officially deferred Chicago.
I still have to figure out what to do about the NYC Marathon. But I have at least 2 more months to figure that out. I am signed up for the France 8K this weekend, which is about 4.9 miles give or take. I planning to go and do a run/walk method. Onto Baby R – that’s why you’re here, right? Enough with the runner rambles! If you missed last week’s recap, check it out HERE.
Due date: Feb 18th!
How far along: 14 weeks for this recap – every Tuesday is a new week for me. (Currently 15 weeks)
Boy or girl? Girl!
Next appointment: September 5 for a general check-up; second trimester screening is on September 23rd which is 2 days after my birthday!
Total weight gain/loss: Holding steady at 9.
Exercise: Still doing kick-boxing, HIIT, upper/lower body strength training, and TRX. All on a modified level. I do take step classes but I don’t do too much with the step, or I keep it very low. I can no longer do burpees.
Stretch marks? None. (Full disclosure: I have them from when I was much heavier and they are old/faded).
Food cravings: potatoes in all forms, egg and cheese sandwiches. I’m happy to say that I am starting to want salads again. I ordered twice out last week and got huge salads.
Food aversions: The sight of raw meat makes me want to vomit. Hummus. Stuffed peppers. Cigarette smoke.
Symptoms: Nausea/dry-heaving; crying easily over nonsensical things – my family went to the beach last week and didn’t invite me/tell me and I was so so sad. I also was stupidly upset about not having any pumpkin beer (when this baby comes, the Spring beers will be out and those are the worst of all the seasonal beers!). Also sleep is starting to be difficult. I’m having trouble falling asleep because I can’t get comfortable. Time to invest in a snoogle.
Movement: None yet.
Maternity clothes: None yet. But I did buy maternity leggings for later on.
What I’m looking forward to: Feeling the baby move and figuring out baby names. Also my birthday, which is less than 30 days away!
