I know I said this in my last bumpdate, but this pregnancy has been such a breeze so far! I’ve definitely been experiencing some common symptoms like itchy skin, lower belly cramping, and dizziness, but it’s really been nothing to complain about. (Hopefully I’m not jinxing myself! ;))
Weight gain has still been very minimal–only about five pounds. I’ve been staying pretty active by continuing to run and by doing some light weight lifting. In fact Berry, or Blueberry as my sister likes to call the baby, and I are running our second 10k together this weekend! The only major difference is that I’ve switched up to more of a Galloway Method (walk and run intervals).
Last week was the last time I could somewhat comfortably squeeze myself into my work pants, so I’m strictly in maternity pants from here on out. I still have a pair of jeans or two that fit, but now that my maternity jeans came in the mail, I’m not looking back! Those things are comfy, I tell ya.
Sleep has been pretty solid minus my 2 am potty breaks. My lower back has begun to ache though, so it’s probably about time that I invest in a good pregnancy pillow. (Move over, Aaron, there is gonna be a new cuddle buddy in town.)
And the most exciting thing so far? Starting to feel tiny little flutters in my belly. (They started last week!)
