I’m at 28 weeks today! Less than three months until my due date…
Weight this week: 131 lb. Yikesyikesyikes. I’ve never seen 130 on the scale before. Reuben keeps telling me that I’m not fat, I’m pregnant, but it’s still kinda hard to see my body grow and grow and grow and grow…
Measurements around largest part of my tummy: 35″ – I’ve gained 2 inches around my middle since 4 weeks ago!
Measurements around smallest part of my waist: 31″ – up 1½ inches from last time.
I have a sneaking suspicion that my hips are growing as well. Some jeans that fit me just fine a few weeks ago are kinda tight, and not just in the belly. ;)
Earlier this month I had a nasty cold and stomach bug. Not fun on top of other pregnancy woes. And then, I contracted a yeast infection. Perfect. Thanks to advice from our awesome midwife, I was able to cure it naturally.
AND in the last week or so I’ve started having some posterior pelvic (think low-low back) pain. If any of you ladies that have gone through pregnancy have advice for this kind of pain, I’d be very grateful if you shared it. :)
I haven’t been exactly steady with my exercises this month. What with sickness and being busy I kinda got out of the routine. So I’ve decided to start a regimen where I workout every weekday that I can. That ensures that I’ll get at least SOME exercise in each week.
And there’s my 28 weeks update.
Have a lovely day, and a Happy Thanksgiving! Eat lots of pie. :)
