I feel huge and don't like any of my clothes. With Nick and at this point, it was cold out, so I could hide under sweaters and hoodies and sweats. This time, I have to go out and buy more tank tops, t-shirts and shorts. I get around w/ athletic gear all the time but whenever I have to get changed into something decent I am throwing clothes on the floor and cursing. I took a picture this week because I had a comparison one. The one on the left is now, baby #2 and the one on the right is Nick at 29 weeks.
Can you tell my hips are bigger and there is just more weight on me? I'm already at a higher weight than when I delivered Nick due to not losing all the weight from Nick- but I think that in the last 11 weeks it will kind of plateau. I feel like I kind of dropped within the past 2 weeks.
*I was just looking at what I wrote with Nick and most things are the same!
*I wanted an early baby and right now I feel that way too. With Nick though, by the time I reached the end, I was not ready and did not want him to come early!
* I was obsessed with Dove soap - haha. And I am again. It's like OCD and I love washing my hands with it and smelling it.
* I'm watching my belly button and I am going to freak out when it comes out. It didn't with Nick but I don't think I have as much luck this time around.
*I try to go to bed early but spend alot of time having breathing problems and having to sit up, trying to get comfortable... I'm not getting enough sleep and am tired most of the time.
* Running is hit or miss but feels better than the last several weeks for the most part. It's slow - 12/13 minute miles
*Swimming - I feel out of shape. I've been going 2x a week but I feel super slow and that it takes alot of effort.
*I don't have to get up in the night to go to the bathroom
*Heartburn - from tomatoes, cheese, anything somewhat spicy
*I have to go pee alot when I'm holding Nick and standing up
I've been craving Trader Joe's vanilla cake mix - and last time I went they didn't have any! I had some vanilla cake mix -betty crocker crap here so at night I have been making oatmeal with a scoop of it, a pat of butter and some milk with instant oats for a little sweet dessert.
For Mother's Day Nick slept in a little bit and hung out in his crib, which enabled me to get in a great run this morning (on the treadmill of course), 5 miles in under an hour!! woohoo. Speed work??!
Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms!
