It has been way to long since I’ve written you guys. I enjoyed taking the week off, I spent a majority of it with my brother and sister in law and then my Grandparents from New York came to visit too. I finally got internet at my house but we’ve been go, go, go I’ve hardly used it.
I made sure to take lots of pictures of what we did so that I can share over the next few days. In the meantime though I have something super exciting going on in internet land for the next 10 days. I’m going to go LIVE on Instagram tomorrow morning around 9:30 MST to share all about it. I’ll give you a hint…it has to do with the Fourth of July, crafts, workouts, and yummy food.
One thing I do want to talk about is how week 30 went with sweet baby girl. Nothing too big has changed, except the heat today is really doing me in. So if you need me I’ll just be sitting indoors with a gallon of water.
How Pregnant Am I:
30 weeks 4 days.
How Big is Baby:
Baby is the size of a garden gnome! This would be Rylee’s favorite week if she knew what was going on. She is obsessed with garden gnomes. She will talk to them at my Mom’s like they are her besties.
In veggie land baby girl is the size of a zucchini or a summer cantaloupe. Now I think the comparisons are finally lining up. It really is starting to sink in that in twoish months we will be a family of four. I know these weeks will fly by because there is a lot going on in July and then before I know it we will be in baby month! In the Ovia app they have the babies hand in white, and then where the baby is at growth wise in the pink. We are so close!
What’s Left To-Do:
So what’s written below is what I tried to accomplish this week. Ask me what I got done…N O T H I N G. So looks like I will keep that right there to motivate me this week.
E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G – seriously. Everything. It’s starting to stress me out but on the flip side it will make the next 10 weeks fly by. I guess we have clothes, at least I think we do. Here is my mini to-do list for this week:
- Paint dresser – we are using Rylee’s old dresser and Rylee is getting my old dresser. Hand me downs for the win.
- Pick out a crib – We are going to try and find a basic white convertible crib. We are going to keep Rylee with her’s so let the shopping begin.
On top of everything else in shambles around me I figured this was most do-able. My mom bless her heart has deep cleaned, and painted four rooms in our house. I am kind of bumming I am pregnant because I have been zero help. Stupid chemicals.
My cold is gone and it wasn’t that bad. My heartburn is out of control. So out of control I may be calling the doctor because I could eat 100 tums a day and that is not good, I think the max is like 12. I hope that means this baby is going to have a lot of hair.
I’ve noticed I am a lot more slow moving. It takes me a little bit longer to get out of bed, get dressed, put my shoes on. Bring on the homestretch.
Monday – 21 Day Fix – Total Body Cardio. I had to modify the ab section to a rest section.
Tuesday – Move Your Body Dance Workout – this one is seriously such a blast.
Wednesday – Move Your Body Dance Workout – I went a little bit harder this time around because I thought I had become a dance expert. I. Was. So. Sore the next day.
Thursday – Rest day. I was sore and in a rush so I took it easy.
Friday – 21 Day Fix – Cardio Fix. I did a little bit less jumping but it was still a killer workout. I ended up getting sore from it which is good and bad. I feel like when I get sore it’s really hard to move. Harder than it already is.
Saturday – Cardio Yoga Flow and Post Cardio Stretch. It felt so good to get up and stretch/move my body. The stiffness loosened up just a few minutes in.
Sunday – 21 Day Fix – Upper Fix – This kind of ties into what I said in the body changes. This workout was getting easier with the weights I had been using but today my arms felt like lead the entire time. When I keep these workouts up I think I’m going to have to play around with different weights. I am feeling drained now and just really really tired so it might be time to start to scale back,
What I’ve Been Eating:
This has been the week of indulgences. I went all out showing my sister-in-law around town and taking her to the best restaurants. For example…doesn’t this look amazing…
My whole belly is moving and grooving. Earlier in the week I was sitting on the couch and MMR asks “did your belly just shake?” Yes, yes it did. I’ve also felt kicks as far as my side which is weird. I never felt them way over there.
For the most part everything has been in check. Nothing too crazy to report here.
Buying for Baby:
I scored some cute outfits from my favorite consignment shop. This week though…the crib is on the list!
So this is going to be a much needed quiet week. I have not been home except to sleep pretty much this entire week. I am looking forward to not going anywhere at all tomorrow. I may even figure out how to have my groceries delivered to my hoise.
Highlight of the Week:
Spending all week with family that I haven’t seen in a really long time. I love that Rylee gets to hang out with them too. Back in the day I loved the trips we would take to my grandparents house in the summer. I am glad that they are willing to travel so far to see us!
The next time we will get together with them is January which seems so far away!
