and then we were in the twenties.
the belly starts to grow, you start to actually look pregnant & you get to feel baby a lot. i like this part. i'm comfortably pregnant. i feel pregnant & i feel little boy's constant kicks & nudges all day long. this is the fun part!
well, my dwindling wardrobe isn't so fun but at least i can break out all the maternity pants & feel comfortable about the expanding waistline. and i have been. i've been living in maternity skinny jeans & yoga pants & most my t-shirts still fit. so that's good.
as good as i am feeling, the fact that i have a pre-existing bad back is rearing its ugly head. i have a history of sciatic pain & uneven hips which makes me feel like an 80 year old woman even when i'm not pregnant... so the expanding hips & the increasing belly-weight puts a lot of pressure back there that i have to be careful with. i'm still able to run quite a bit at stroller strides but i definitely feel it the rest of the day. hopefully my high-intensity work out days are not numbered!
i don't really feel like i have any legit "pregnancy cravings." i mean, long before i was ever pregnant i loved chocolate, ice cream & all things carbs. i just find myself giving in to those little guilty pleasures more often now that i'm pregnant. this week has been all about chocolate milk & peanut butter twix. YUM.
we had an awesome weekend. despite crappy weather, we spent a lot of time outside & had some good ol fashioned family time. lots of errands, a couple meals on the town & a late night or two watching "arrested development" on apple tv. thems is the makings of a good weekend muh friends.
