Body Changes: I gained 2 lbs this week, apparently, my body is big on grabbing those lbs early in a new trimester. I fear they are going to my face, I feel like it’s a little more round and swollen and I’m not enjoying that part. I know it’s not terrible, but I think we’re the first to pick apart anything on our own bodies. There was a lot more cramping and aching this week. It made working out a little harder and getting up from the floor a little rough too.
Sleeping: It was great to not be traveling and enjoy my own bed! I’m also waking up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom only a few times a week, so I’m thrilled about that!
Fitness: I felt pretty awesome when I went running with a friend who was staying with us while in town and after she turned to me and said, “Well pregnant lady, you still kicked my butt!” I feel like I’m going much slower and it’s getting a little harder to breathe. I also gagged and almost vomited that run because it was garbage day and the smell of each trash can early in the morning just set me off! I guess it was motivation to speed up and get them over with faster!
Craving: Lemonade has sounded great every single day this week! We had an AZ Blogger Meetup at Peixoto Coffee in Chandler and I got a fresh lemongrass lemonade and almost died of pure joy! I even finished off my sister’s lemonade at the event. Liquids in general always sound good, but lemonade, water, and milk are always craved!
The joints and limbs can all move, which is pretty cool!
