Pregnancy round two.
I had so many ideas of how this pregnancy was going to be different from my first. I had dreams of healthy eating and long runs and continuing my heavy lifting. I was going to stay super fit and be this super Crossfit pregnant women.
This pregnancy is different. This is almost as if it’s my first pregnancy. It’s been seven years since I was pregnant with my daughter. I hardly remember anything.
As soon as I got pregnant this time I was ready to keep up with my clean eating and my workouts. Until I started getting sick. All day. Every day. I remember feeling like death for he first 9 weeks.
I couldn’t get close to anything green. And every type of meat made me want to gag. I ate what sounded good and 99% of the time it wasn’t the greatest options.
I couldn’t work out because I couldn’t keep my eyes open after I got home from work. I was drained. And guess what? That’s okay!
I admit I was extremely disappointed at first. I wanted to be active and healthy from day one of pregnancy this time. But, that didn’t happen.
Now though! I am almost 14 weeks pregnant…I’m running, walking, and working out again. Though I’m not heavy lifting and I’m no longer doing Crossfit type workouts. I’ve made a step in the right direction.
And on the food subject. I don’t eat the greatest. I indulge in my cravings from time to time and I eat some healthy and some unhealthy foods. Meats still sound pretty nasty most days. But I’m trying to do better with the food stuff.
Pregnancy is hard. It’s life altering and it takes a huge toll on your body. It changes a lot.(like my hips that even at 14 weeks are already expanding outwards) it’s so beautiful though. When I start to feel down about my changing body…I remember that in growing a tiny little human inside me. And I smile.
Also, finding clothes that fit at this stage of pregnancy is beyond frustrating! Too big for my normal clothes and too small for maternity. And for those who know me…know I’m ALL about my fashion and my outfits! Haha! Loose dresses are my best friends. And leggings. Leggings are heaven.
Sorry I haven’t blogged in what feels like forever. My energy has been lacking and life has been all over the place. I am not a stay at home mommy and keep up with the house and such. It’s been years since I’ve stayed at home. It’s been quite the adjustment. I am whoever so grateful for this opportunity! And for the extra time with my daughter, time to do more things around the house, and time to focus on my health.
Sorry for the absence. But…I’m backkkk.
