Did you notice two weeks ago was a 20 week update and today is 21? At our ultrasound we found that our due date may be 5 days off, so I’m likely 21.5 weeks pregnant today rather than 22. Silly details maybe, but I don’t want to get ahead of myself.
Yesterday I shared my “sisters” bump photo from her baby shower this weekend. I don’t think we took a solo picture of me in normal clothes this week, so here’s the bump in running gear:
I felt great this week, although the travel did wipe me out more than it would have previously. But after a nap yesterday, I’m feeling back on track.
Workouts are still feeling good, although my running pace keeps slipping away. I think I need to leave the watch at home. I’m only using it for curiosity – not trying to hit any particular pace, but it is sometimes discouraging how hard a 9 or 10 minute mile can feel! And it takes me a good two miles until I feel like I’m warmed up and the paces come more easily.
Other details from this week:
How far along: 21.5 weeks
Total weight gain: up 9-10 lbs
Maternity clothes: Still a mix of belly bands and maternity. And lots of yoga pants!
Sleep: Mostly good. The only downside is when my daughter gets up to pee and then I have trouble falling back to sleep.
Miss anything: Sleeping on my stomach. But overall, there’s not much that I miss right now.
Movement: Yes! Not as crazy as it was with my daughter. I hope that means this one will be a bit more laid back.
Food cravings: Pretty normal right now. I’m starting to crave chocolate again, but am trying to make good choices.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Popcorn or crackers don’t appeal to me at all right now.
Have you started to show yet: Yes! Some shirts show off the bump more than others.
Gender: If you missed it, looks like we’re going to be surprised.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy. But if I’m sleep deprived, very emotional!
Looking forward to: Springtime. Getting the nursery organized. Sorting the tiny baby clothes.
How long does it take you to feel warmed up in a run?
