How far along? 31 weeks
Total weight gain: 26 pounds. I am still working out at least 4 times a week. Tuesdays I lift weights in my 24 hour lift class, Mondays and Wednesdays are Turbo Kick, and Thursday or Fridays are elliptical & free weights. I am going to be honest. It's getting harder. With this much extra weight on my frame, it's starting to affect my back. I might start to cut back...we'll see....
Sleep:Awful!! In the last two weeks my sleep has gotten terrible. I am up 3-4 times a night for bathroom breaks alone!! I can't get comfortable with the bobby pillow (I blame the size of our bed on this). I get restless leg syndrome often. Because of this, I tend to have a hard time falling back to sleep, so I tend to wake up super early and tired, well before my daily alarm clock.
Best Moment this week: My baby shower was this past Saturday. It was the most incredible outpouring of love I have ever received. More on that later...
What I miss: As I am nearing the end, there are quit a few things I miss. I want to stay positive though. Pregnancy is a gift, a blessing, and I am trying to focus my energy on all the great things that have been happening to my body during this time. I am carrying the most precious life inside of me, preparing for her entrance into this world. I really can't complain about missing too much, when I know in short two months I will get to indulge in all those things again. But okay, lets throw a few things out there: I really miss my regular work out routines. I really miss alcohol and I really miss being able to bend over and shave my legs. There I said it.
What I am looking forward to: Getting some TLC time for myself.
Milestones: I had a doctor's appointment on Friday, and everything looks great. Baby girls heartbeat is on track, my measurements are exactly 31 inches, and overall I feel her move all the time. It's some amazing bonding time for sure!!
